Operating as usual

[08/13/20]   We have lost power and had to close early for the day. Best way to reach us is by email: [email protected]
We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to be up and running tomorrow!!

Kids now have increased their screen time on devices due to online classes and lack of physical activities. This has created a new wave of reading and binocular vision issues; making learning more difficult for children. Call NOW to schedule an annual eye exam for your child so we can prepare them for the upcoming school year👍
DON'T FORGET: Illinois requires eye exams for all Kindergartners so book with us today!

We will be going back to our normal hours starting JUNE 1st! Except for our shorter days, Wed and Sat which we will remain closed for the month. We will be open as normal for all your eye care needs. For the protection of our patients and staff we will be requiring appointments for all visits including exams, pick ups, adjustments, and eyeglass sales. Face masks, forehead temperature checks, and social distancing will also be mandatory. All CDC requirements will be enforced. We anticipate a busy summer season as Chicago moves to stage 3, so make sure to call and schedule your routine exam today!

We are in this together Chicago! Wear a mask and stop the spread❤️

Eyes feeling tired with all the new screen time in quarantine? Check out our recommendations for happier eyes and less headaches!

~20/20 Rule: For every 20 min of screen time, take a break and look away about 20 feet for 20 seconds. This will relax your focusing and cause less fluctuating vision.
~Make sure you remember to blink! Dry eyes are a major symptom of increased screen time.
~Computer monitors should be at about arms length distance and at eye level or lower for less fatigue.

[04/30/20]   COVID-19 UPDATE: Starting in May, with the shelter in place still enacted, we will be open again with a limited schedule. Mondays and Thursdays only from 11am - 4pm. We will be following all CDC protocols for the protection of our patients and staff. The office will be open to appointments only, so please call to schedule one today! If you have a pre scheduled appointment for May outside these limited hours, we will be contacting you to make other arrangements. See you soon and stay healthy Chicago!

Wishing we could celebrate with you all, but Zoom won't allow that many people on at the same time🤣 Thank you to everyone who has helped us get to our 2 year anniversary and allowed us to be part of the North Center community. We are excited to get back to business and hope to see everyone soon! Cheers to staying happy and healthy 🤓

[03/17/20]   In protecting our patients and staff from COVID-19 we are following all CDC guidelines for disease prevention. This includes hand washing and disinfecting the office in between patients, including all door handles and equipment. Dr. Liz is also using a face mask for close contact testing and we have arranged for more time in between appointments to prevent less patients in the office at one time. We are a small office and will continue to follow these guidelines and STAY OPEN. However, we also expect the same from our patients. If you are having any symptoms including fever or cough, have traveled in the last 3 weeks, and or have been around anyone whom is sick; PLEASE do not make an appointment and or visit our office until you have been tested. Together we can stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus!

Federal authorities warn against dangers of decorative contact lenses

Halloween novelty and colored contacts without a doctors prescription are not FDA regulated. They have been found to have high levels of bacteria and lead based paint which gets directly absorbed into your body. The only thing spooky about these contacts is what can happen to your eyes! 😳 With Halloween rapidly approaching, federal law-enforcement authorities are issuing a consumer warning against dangerous counterfeit contact lenses and unapproved decorative contact lenses illegally sold at retail outlets and online that can cause eye infections, conjunctivitis and impaired vision.
