About Us

Our aim is to give unrivalled quality of professional care and range of options. We have purposefully equipped the practice with the latest technology including corneal topography and video imaging. This helps us to meet our aims but would be meaningless if we didn't give you, the patient, the time necessary to do a thorough and complete examination, for a new patient - we allow up to an hour for the first appointment.

Unlike some High Street opticians we are not restricted by the range of lenses that we can offer. We do not limit ourselves to "brand only" lenses nor do we have targets to meet and can therefore offer you the lens and solution combination that is right for you. We even design our own lenses if the fitting falls outside the normal parameters or there is any irregularity on the cornea.

If you are a new patient we need you to bring your latest sight test prescription to your appointment. If you are a current contact lens wearer you will need to wear your lenses into the appointment but please bring with you your contact lens case and spectacles.


Keith Tempany FBDO CL, FBCLA

Keith has been in optics since 1973, he qualified in 1976 and was manager of a local opticians by 1977. Moving down to Devon he managed several types of opticians and in 1982 started his own practice. A second practice was acquired shortly afterwards but these were sold in 1991 in order to relocate back to his home area. Specialising in contact lens work since 1992, he has worked as a locum at many local opticians including Jersey and Southampton.

In 2002 he started KTO in the Aesculus Clinic in Poole but, due to the main clinic relocating, he then moved to the current location in Broadstone. In May 2008 he was elected as a Fellow of the British Contact Lens Association, an award that recognises his knowledge and understanding of contact lenses and the anterior eye.

In 2009 Keith was elected to the council of the British Contact Lens Association and has carried out several workshops on behalf of the BCLA helping to improve the competency of fellow opticians in fitting contact lenses. The practice was listed in the top 3 of Contact Lens Practice of the Year in 2009, Keith won Contact Lens Practitioner of the Year in 2010 and shortlisted in the final 3 for the same award in 2012. He has been advised various companies on lens design and carried out various pre-launch trials.
