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.
Even if it takes you hours to select the perfect frames from i2i eyecare’s vast selection—which boasts designer styles from Ray Ban, Tory Burch, and Vera Wang—it typically takes the optician 60 minutes to fit them with prescription lenses. Helmed by the on-site optometrist Dr. Lisanne Close-Rogers, the center’s one-hour lenses help streamline the shopping process, sending patrons quickly back into the world without running into the door on the way out. She draws on more than 15 years of optometry experience to administer eye exams and fit contact lenses, and also screens for and treats common ocular diseases. Crafting customized for progressive lenses may require more time.

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.
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 optometrist does everything from perform routine eye exams to diagnose ocular diseases with advanced technology such as digital retinal photography and corneal topography. 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 each AmeriLaser Center and AmeriCosmetic Surgery Center in Des Plaines and Downers Grove, experienced laser technicians and aestheticians, under a team of supervising doctors, take time to listen to each client?s skincare needs. Building this rapport helps the staffers to craft custom treatment plans that may include non-invasive procedures like laser hair removal, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers, as well as invasive procedures like liposuction, breast augmentation, face lifts and tummy tucks. Their most celebrated treatment may be noninvasive skin tightening, which uses bipolar radio frequencies and magnetic pulses to help to firm lax skin caused by aging or extreme weight loss, and it has earned ringing endorsements from The Biggest Loser winner Michael Ventrella, WWE pro wrestler Lisa Marie Varon, and a cherry tomato that sat untouched in Elvis Presley?s fridge for years.
