BOSTON – Koch Eye Associates, with seven locations throughout Rhode Island, was sold last month, according to Ophthalmology Times.

“Candescent has a strong track record of successfully building and growing health care services enterprises,” said Peter Koch, who will remain CEO of Koch after the transaction is completed. “I look forward to working with them to build the premier vision care services company in New England.”

Peter Koch as well as Paul Koch and Patricia Koch will remain active in the business, the publication said.
