Kings Hill Opticians was established on the 21st September 2005 by Mr Satvinder Shoker and his wife Mrs Satwant Shoker. Our independent practice is conveniently located within the heart of Liberty Square, the retail Park of Kings Hill, West Malling.
With all the new residents and businesses settling in the newly developed Kings Hill Estate, we wanted to provide a local specialised Optometric service fulfilling all their visual requirements. However we are really pleased to report that our positive reputation has spread far and wide, so much so that we now see patients form all the neighbouring towns like, Maidstone, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Gravesend and the Medway Towns. We are fortunate enough to even have some patients coming to see us from as far as Cyprus and truly belive they make this commitment to benefit from the high level of service and professional approach to Eye Care that we have adopted.
For your convenience we are open 6 days a week with Eye Testing available every day. We do suggest booking appointments in plenty of time to ensure that we can see you at time to suit. Also parking is never an issue as there are plenty of free parking spaces at the local Asda Supermarket car park.
The practice was established by our Specialist Optometrist Mr Satvinder Shoker BSc (Hons) MCOptom. Mr Shoker is a caring professional who has developed with a wealth of experience in eye health and Optometry. This is reflected throughout Kings Hill Opticians where Mr Shoker has always encouraged Clinical Excellence to be delivered to his Patients.
Following his degree in Optometry in 2002, he opted to train at the Opticians Department in Maidstone Hospital instead of a High Street Opticians. Over the last 15 years, his excellent clinical abilities have been recognised as he has managed to work his way up to his current role as the Head Optometrist at the Opticians Department, Maidstone Hospital.
At the Hospital, Mr Shoker works alongside Consultant Ophthalmologists in Diabetic and Glaucoma clinics whilst also helping fit complex Contact Lens to patients at Maidstone Hospital. He plays an active role in helping young children obtain correct spectacles by testing their eyes when they are unable to accurately be assessed in the Community.
At Kings Hill Opticians, Mr Shoker has many roles which include the monitoring of patients on behalf of the hospital, when they are being treated for Wet Macula Degeneration, under the CAMS Service. Mr Shoker is also employed by the West Kent CCG as an 'OPwSI's – an Optometrist with Special Interest in Ophthalmology. This role sees him seeing patients who may have been referred in by their GP's or optometrists for a range of eye problems.
As described above, the essence of our Practice is based around the experience of our Specialist Optometrist, Mr Shoker. At the Hospital the equipment used to assess the eyes is second to none. He wanted to bring the Clinical Excellence from the Hospital to the Community. This is why he has invested in the most advanced equipment currently available.
We display a wide range of designer and non-designer to suit all adults and children and are confident that we have a price range for all individuals. We supply all major contact lens brands and invite all new patients to join our contact lens schemes, whether they be monthly direct debits or pay as you wear schemes. All Private or NHS patients are welcome for sight tests including adults & children of all ages. By using the most up-to-date and accurate equipment, each appointment will be individually tailored to meet your needs. Kings Hill Opticians staff will ensure that your eye health and visual requirements are put first, whilst offering you an exceptionally high quality service.

"Very good customer service. Friendly staff.Can't fault them at all."
"Professional and friendly offering outstanding customer service. They have an excellent range of frames and help you choose the right ones for you, no matter how long it takes! After sales service is equally outstanding as they are sincere in wanting you to have the glasses that are absolutely right for you. This review is well overdue as I have used them for 4 years now and will continue to do so. The rest of the family are now on board. Highly recommended."
