Chicago’s Signature Eyeglass and Contact Lens Provider

Having 20/20 vision doesn’t necessarily mean your eyes are healthy. Many eye problems can only be diagnosed through a comprehensive eye exam.

We also offer a huge inventory of top brand eyeglasses and contact lens options to fit your needs, lifestyle, and budget. We’ve served all of Chicago, IL, for over 50 years, and we’ve built a reputation for quality eye care at affordable prices. Contact us today to schedule an initial eye exam and consultation.

Glasses vs. contacts

Using eyeglasses or contact lenses depends on your personal comfort level, your specific prescription, and of course, your budget. Eyeglasses require less cleaning and maintenance than contact lenses, have a lower risk of causing eye infections (since you’re not touching your eyes to use them), and have a longer lifecycle than most contact lens options. Eyeglasses can also adjust the amount of light that reaches your eyes by using photochromic lenses, as they can shift from clear to shaded when in contact with sunlight. Contact lenses offer better unobstructed peripheral vision, are safer to use when engaging in sports or outdoor activities, are more protected from falling and breaking, and come in a wide variety of colors and styles. Whatever your preference, we offer an inventory of top designer glasses, frames, and contact lenses that will fit comfortably and give you clear vision you can count on.
