For over 40 years our office has been synonymous with the finest in eye care, whether it be an eye exam, a new pair of glasses, or eye health related issues. In addition, Dr. Fretz and her team of Visual Therapists have extensive training in the treatment and remediation of visual problems related to children’s reading and learning. The team also works together to diagnose and treat vision related difficulties experienced by patients suffering from a head injury or stroke.

For us, it's not just a matter of eye exams and fitting glasses; It's about understanding how you work, play, and live in the world. It's about knowing how you use your sight and you process what you see.

We want to help you get the most out of life.

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Our eye exams utilize today’s latest technologies allowing us to see a clearer picture of your overall eye health and any challenges you may be facing.

Diagnosing & Treating Eye Diseases

Many vision threatening eye diseases - such as glaucoma and macular degeneration - can come as a surprise. They often show few initial symptoms, yet their influence on your life can be significant.

Our doctors and vision care professionals are here to ensure that you receive the best care possible. With early detection and treatment we can reduce the impact of these eye diseases by as much as 95%.

No matter the need, we are here for you.

We Have Moved to Our New Facility!

We are thrilled to announce that in May 2017, we moved into our new 7000 square foot facility. This new and significantly larger space has given us more room, allowing us to better serve our patients. We have expanded our showroom, so that we can show off the nearly 1000 frames and sunglasses we have to offer. We are also your source for eye health supplements, drops and contact lens supplies. Come visit us today!

Proudly Participating in Eye See… Eye Learn

The Eye See… Eye Learn program provides complimentary glasses to children born in 2012, until June 30th, 2017. Only 16% of children in Ontario have their eyes examined prior to kindergarten. Be sure that your child is one of them! If your child needs eye glasses, a pair will be provided at no charge (in partnership with OGI eyewear and NIkon Lenswear). We are proud to participate and to provide our community’s young students with the eye care they need to succeed in school.

Leaders in Ocular Health

Great eye care doesn’t have to come with the long drive to Kitchener, London or the GTA. At Listowel Vision Care, we have invested heavily in leading-edge equipment and therapies so that our patients can enjoy the best eyecare available today… right here at home!

Specialty Contact Lens Fittings

Contact lenses are an effective and affordable way to enjoy the benefits of vision correction without having to wear glasses or change your appearance. If you have been unable to wear contacts in the past due to fitment or eye shape/size concerns, visit us for a speciality fitting. We offer many types of contact lenses, including astigmatism and bifocal contact lenses that are suitable for nearly anyone! We also offer Lasik co-management, Cataract co-management, and Glaucoma care.

Keeping Insurance Easy

We direct-bill all major insurance companies to help you keep your eye care easy and affordable. If your insurance company doesn’t support direct billing, we will provide all necessary information so that you can make a quick and easy claim. Need help? Just ask- we’re here for you.
