Welcome to
Central Ohio Vision and Eyecare!

Thank you for stopping by to learn more about our practice and what makes it special!

Our practice was originally started 20 years ago as Sorensen and Sorensen Optometrist by Doctors Heather and Kevin Sorensen. They started the practice to serve their community with the best care possible. The Sorensens moved to Florida and transferred the practice to their associate Doctor, Matthew Karres, in 2018. While the practice continues to grow and change with the times, the standard of excellence that the practice was founded on will always remain the same.

Our mission is to give you the best care. It shows in everything that we do. From your first contact with us to your appointment and your follow-up, we aim to make your eye care experience great. This is what drives us to provide you with the best care year after year!
