Though SEE Eyewear’s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop’s exclusive coveted selection.
From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn’t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
In 1930, Dr. Joseph Rosin and his brother, Maurice, opened a small shop on Cermak Road in Cicero. In 80 years, the shop has grown from a small family-run optometrist's office to a regionally renowned business that has sharpened the eyesight of celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Plácido Domingo and left its mark on the Chicago area by designing famous symbols such as Harry Caray's trademark glasses and the novelty shades that adorn the John Hancock Center. Today, Rosin Eyecare rests in the hands of the third generation of Rosins, ably helmed by brothers James and Jonathan, who continue a proud tradition of warm, personal service as they improve eyesight with high-tech LASIK and PRK treatments as well as stylish eyeglasses with scratch-resistant lenses. At 16 locations, including the newest office Long Grove, a staff of optometrists keeps optical orbs in high function with comprehensive exams, treating each patient's individual needs with products such as a contact-lens implant or a prescription safety eyewear.
For nearly a quarter-century, Dr. Fernando Mosqueda has treated Chicagoans for everything from pink eye to ulcers, but specializes in modern vision ailments such computer strain. He performs exams six days a week for both eyeglasses and contact wearers, and fits clients for frames from a designer collection that includes Burberry and Tory Burch. Custom lenses come with a variety of modern features, including thinner plastic, scratch-resistant surfaces, anti-reflective coating, and filters that enable people to see into the spirit realm. Dr. Mosqueda’s staff speaks four languages—English, Spanish, Russian, and Hebrew— which comes in handy when they’re helping out clients for services such as frame repairs and adjustments.
Since Dr. Stanley Pearle opened the doors to the first Pearle Vision in 1961, the franchise has expanded to more than 800 stores nationwide. In these stores, optometrists assess the ocular health of patients before onsite opticians help them navigate the assortment of frames from brands such as Versace, Ray-Ban, and DKNY. If they're not in the store, clients can utilize the Try-On tool, uploading a photo to see what they or their dog looks like in different types of glasses. Pearle Vision also helps focus the world with contacts from Acuvue and Biofinity.
Since 1982, the family behind Contacts and Specs has outfitted eyes in a slew of designer frames and contact lenses. Each in-house optometrist draws from at least a decade of experience when determining prescriptions through 20- to 30-minute exams or providing Lasik consultations. The knowledgeable staff helps clients to navigate through neat rows of designer frames from brands such as Ray-Ban and Mont Blanc. A curtained-off area lined with damask wallpaper, curvy, white mirrors, and whimsical lighting provides a discreet place for clients to try out frames or reenact favorite fashion montages.
Dr. Jordan Jones and his duo of fashion-conscious opticians, Gregory and Joseph Winjum, foster ocular health with comprehensive eye exams, and if necessary, outfit patients with the proper prescription contact lenses and glasses. Both the Chicago and Orland Park locations feature shelves neatly stocked with designer frames from brands such as Paul Smith, Tom Ford, Oliver Peoples, ic! berlin, and Prada. The wide selection of eyeglasses ensures that clients can find the appropriate styles to suit their face shapes, lifestyles, and superhero alter egos.
Both Drs. William and Jason Brand know their patients place a lot of trust in them when they use them for their eye care needs or elect them to perform their LASIK procedures. That trust isn't something the father and son teams takes lightly. They ensure it's continued by monitoring patients throughout the whole LASIK process, instead of handing them off to a technician or an unpaid intern. The doctors have years of experience treating patients with LASIK technology and also engaging in pre- and post-operative care.
VIPink assembles an evening of art, lively libations, and quiet bidding to benefit Bright Pink, a nonprofit organization focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. Sip on complimentary cocktails and peruse retina-regaling work from local artists, mingling with other attendees or cheering on the Cardinals at the select TVs broadcasting the World Series. Hors d’oeuvres accompany drinks, as well as prevent stomachs from committing the egregious faux pas of calling out during the silent auction.
Stop driving into garbage cans and pretending to read books while driving into garbage cans. Today's side deal gets you a comprehensive eye exam at Wink Optical for $40 (an $89 value). Each thorough examination screens for health conditions and determines your lens prescription if necessary. Though your Groupon cannot be used for contact lens fittings, you can use it for an exam and pay for a contact lens fitting (includes trial contacts and all follow-up care for an additional $70 or $80, depending on the type of lens).
The eye doctors at Family Eye Physicians, which include an ophthalmologist with a resume that lists advanced training in pediatric eye care a position as chief resident of John Stroger Hospital, employ the latest technology to perform preventative and restorative services. To diagnose eye issues, they create three-dimensional images with high-resolution optical coherence tomography and use a technique called fluorescein angiography, in which a fluorescent dye is injected into the arm to highlight ocular abnormalities, such as deposits beneath the retina or blood vessel patterns that resemble Elvis. The highly trained team can improve cataract patients' vision at all distances via intraocular lens implants, or make glasses and contacts obsolete with microkeratome or bladeless LASIK vision-correction surgery.
At Boss Optical, a team of opticians and doctors of optometry guide patients through each stage of the vision-correction experience. Starting with a comprehensive eye examination, the doctors pore over ocular orbs for signs of aberration and screen for disease. Prescriptions are then sent to their onsite lab, where technicians churn out single-vision, bifocal, and progressive lenses within a few days; enough time for patients to pick out an ideal pair from more than 1,000 frames—including more than 60 from designer brands—but not so long that their eyes have already turned into raisins. The staff can also satisfy frame-free tastes by fitting eyes with contact lenses from brands such as Acuvue and Bausch + Lomb. A free, private parking lot is available next to Boss Optical's building.
Born in Morocco and raised in the United States, New Look Vision's owner Younes has an international sense of style, which is reflected in the black brick walls and sleek furniture decorating the boutique, as well as the selection of chic eyewear on display. On any given day, there's a good chance that Younes will be working in the shop and helping visitors to find men's or women's frames that best flatter their faces. Patrons can also find children's eyewear and vintage frames handpicked from the faces of 1960s British Invasion artists that the shop's staff can fit with single-vision or bifocal lenses.
At Primary Eye Care Associates, Drs. Steven Chander and Raj K. Goyal continue a nearly 40-year commitment to using the latest advances in eyecare technology. Today, their services include multiple forms of laser vision correction, plus nonsurgical options such as corneal refractive molding, which uses a special contact lens to gently reshape the cornea. The doctors match their commitment to providing advanced care with high-quality eyewear, such as SynergEyes hybrid contact lenses that combine the qualities of hard and soft contacts. They also stock a show room with fashion frames from designers such as Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana.
You only get one pair of eyes, which is why the doctors at Vision Boutique take such care to treat them well. The office is owned by the doctors themselves, allowing them to take ample time to care for everyone who comes in seeking help with their vision. In turn, they and their staff choose eyewear from designers who value fit and precision—as well as style—such as Paul Smith, Ray-Ban, and Zero-G. The office's environment also reflects the team's dedication to sleek aesthetics with sharp lines and dark wood furniture. An acid-green accent wall holds up a mirror where patients check how frames fit or whether their ears need lowering again.
Situated on the cusp of downtown Chicago, West Loop Eye Care caters to the ocular needs of patients of all ages. The clinic’s team of highly trained doctors—Helen, Malgorzata, and Neil—begin appointments with a thorough examination, measuring visual acuity by asking clients to read letters off a chart or find Waldo at a distance of 3 feet. From there, they fit the farsighted and near sighted with the appropriate lenses, be they contacts or spectacles set in designer frames by Prada, Gucci, and Versace. No matter the lens, West Loop Eye Care can create them onsite in their very own lab.
