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.

Under the guidance of optometrist Dr. Christopher Frame, Family Eye Care of Elmwood Park’s staff provides patients of all ages with comprehensive eyecare.

The optical boutique stocks a selection of frames by designers including Jai Kudo, Modo, Kenneth Cole, and BCBG, along with a variety of lens materials to help patients find eyewear that fits their face and prescription. Family Eye Care also offers a two-year warranty on frames and lenses, a buyback guarantee on contacts, and an optional staring contest during eye exams.

At AMS Vision, a trio of accomplished doctors treat patients with both preventive and emergency eye care. Beyond basic services, including eye exams and contact lens fittings, the team is equipped to handle foreign-object removal, LASIK, and cataract consultations—for which they also co-manage the scheduling of surgeries and follow-ups. Upon having their vision corrected, patients will notice that the vision center has another side to it—a medspa. Here, practitioners administer Botox and other cosmetic injections, as well as laser treatments for vein therapy, hair removal (Oak Brook location only), and anti-aging facials, which can help clients go back and land the starring role in their middle school’s rendition of Annie.

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.
