About MKO

We're proud of our hard-earned reputation.

Martyn Kemp Opticians (MKO) was founded in 1973 by Martyn Kemp, and has several practices across South Yorkshire. Over the past 40+ years the group has established itself as a leading optician, and has over 100,000 patients across its practices.

A Great Service at Affordable Prices

MKO has an excellent reputation in providing excellent eye care with the latest equipment in Optometry. In addition to the high quality eye examinations, MKO offers patients a fantastic range of quality eyewear and a wide variety of lens options.

Our Staff

All our staff undergo regular training to ensure that the service provided to you at any MKO branch is of the highest standard. This is reflected in our staff retention – with the average length of employment being over 15 years. Our optometrists are highly qualified and see on average 12 patients a day. This ensures that no patient is rushed and the optometrists have enough time to do any extra tests where necessary, and explain the results.

Optometric Excellence 

Several of our optometrists have undergone extra training, which sees them receive patients referred by GPs and fellow optometrists, to conduct extra tests before referring a patient to the hospital eye service. Many have undergone training for glaucoma refinement referral, which helps them understand if a patient requires further treatment. You can read more about glaucoma, the effects and testing, here.
