Meet Our Orillia
Your Local Eye Doctors in Orillia, Ontario
Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Dr. Kingstone & Dr. Monk take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
So, if you’re looking for a great eye doctor near you, look no further than Orillia Eyewear & iCare!
Dr. Neal Kingstone is a highly dedicated, passionate optometrist with over 25 years of experience. He is committed to providing the finest and most personalized eye care to patients of all ages. He firmly believes that excellent health begins with education and prevention, and enjoys enlightening his patients to ways they can take greater control over their own eye health.
Dr. Kingstone received his Optometric training at the prestigious New England School of Optometry in Boston MA, where he earned his Doctorate degree in 1992. After a residency year in which he received a Fellowship in Clinical Education, Dr. Kingstone spent the next 11 years practising in a multi-disciplinary healthcare setting affiliated with Harvard Medical School in Boston MA. In early 2004, he moved with his wife and two young children back to his home north of Toronto. There, he soon discovered the wonderful community surrounding Orillia ON where he began to practise in early 2006. Dr. Kingstone so much enjoyed caring for his patients in Orillia, that in September 2015 he became the new owner of Orillia eyewear, which has since been renamed Orillia Eyewear & iCare in order to reflect its growing Optometric practice. In his spare time, Dr Kingstone enjoys training for and participating in several triathlons throughout Ontario.
Dr. Kingstone and his staff look forward to continuing to provide all of their patients and customers with excellent eye health care as well as furnishing all of their optical and eyewear needs for many years to come!
With roots in Muskoka for 42 years, Dr. Monk has enjoyed caring for patients of all ages with a full scope practice. Matching with Dr. Kingstone’s philosophy of patient care, he believes that working in a team-like fashion with you can arrive at a best-practice solution for each person’s needs.
Dr. Monk comes to our office after a short-lived semi-retirement. He enjoys meeting new and returning people to the practice and working with the excellent staff already here. With the new generation technology at Dr. Kingstone’s office, patient care is taken to a higher level allowing full integration into the health care family. He has worked for over two decades helping to regulate the profession at the College of Optometrists of Ontario.
Eye care hasn’t been his only interest, as being a commercial pilot and active boater, has opened up the ability to explore our country. With his wife Carol, they enjoy being parents of their combined family of six children and proud of them all.
