Kenton Optometrist was established in 2022 by Graham Chrich, who has over 45 years of experience in optometry practice. After many years of having a successful practice in Port Elizabeth, he decided to relocate to sunny Kenton on Sea.
Kenton Optometrist is a family practice that focuses on delivering clear and comfortable vision to all our patients. We strive to provide high-quality and personalised service. Our goal is to help you see your best, look your best and feel your best! We look forward to attending to your vision care needs and building a one-on-one relationship with you.
Our dynamic full scope Optometry Practice provides the very best in eye care technologies and customer care.
We provide a range of eye examinations. Having your eyes tested regularly can also result in early detection of a serious health risk. Our aim is to make clear and comfortable vision a reality for all our patients based on each patient’s needs.
This test is used to measure the sharpness and clarity of your vision. Both near and distance vision is tested using eye charts and different lenses. We can determine how to improve your vision based on the results.
Frames are more than just corrective eyewear; they become part of your daily appearance. Our team are here to help choose the perfect frame to meet your needs and preferences.
Starting with an eye health assessment, we can determine if you are able to wear Contact Lenses. Once you are cleared, you are fitted, and the required types of lenses are discussed to determine the best option for your lifestyle.
From time to time you may want your frames adjusted or repaired. Our skilled optician can adjust the bridge, nose pads and temples to ensure the proper fit for your face.
We have a wide range or frames from a variety of brands to choose from. These frames can be fitted with lenses to meet all your needs such as, indoor use, outdoor use, reading, driving and more.
Protect your vision from damage caused by glaucoma with regular, complete eye tests. A Comprehensive Glaucoma Exam includes the testing of 5 factors before making a diagnosis.

“Dr. Graham, Gloria and Karla are wonderful. Friendly, yet professional and extremely informative. I agonized over the decision for the frames. They let me take them home to help solidify my decision. No optometrist has ever given me that option. Dr Graham took great care and time in explaining the eye exam. Very impressive. Would thoroughly recommend Kenton Optometry! I feel as though I’ve made new friends.”
