How can we help you today?

Your local, independent optical solution

Your eyes are one of your most important features. They enable you to focus on the meaningful details of every-day life; small moments of love, laughter, and exploration — all things that help to define us. It is so important that your eyes are well taken care of. And when something doesn’t feel quite right, it can be unsettling and feel as though you are losing a part of yourself — we can assure you, it doesn’t have to feel this way. We’ll get you back to seeing and feeling great again.

At CustomEyes, we are your local, eye care company that has been operating in Chicago since 2003. As an independent company, our goal is to always provide you with the best possible solution from which you will receive the most benefit from. We will never suggest something you simply do not need. We understand the apprehension around getting your eyes tested or wearing glasses for the first time. We are here to make you feel as comfortable as possible, giving you the advice and care that you need. Whether you are looking to have an eye exam, are in need of new glasses or contact lenses or you would simply like to have some advice — we are here to help you. We have five offices here in Chicago, so we'll never be too far away for you to visit!

When you find that your vision may not be what it used to be or something just doesn’t feel quite right, please don’t let it pass! Please get in touch with us using one of the buttons below:

Professional Eye Exams

An eye exam can seem quite daunting the first time around. Not knowing what to expect or feeling worried about the outcome — you are not alone. We are here to help put you at ease and assure you that you have nothing to worry about. Whatever the outcome may be, we’ll ensure you are feeling a whole lot better about it when you leave our practice.

At CustomEyes, your comprehensive eye exam will last around 30 minutes. The examination will include a thorough determination of prescription, as well as a complete evaluation of ocular health. A contact lens exam is available in conjunction with your exam. The contact lens exam is required annually for contact lens wearers in order to maintain good ocular health in relation to your contact lenses. It also includes any trial contact lenses and follow up visits needed for our doctors to find the healthiest and most comfortable lens for you.

If your vision isn’t what it used to be or if you would just like to have a good, healthy check-up, get in touch with us below!

It's truly amazing what technology can do now. Procedures such as laser eye surgery can be performed to help give you your vision and confidence back. It really is quite something.

CustomEyes is proud to partner with the Kraff Eye Institute for LASIK and other laser vision correction procedures. The Kraff Eye Institute performs the laser correction procedure itself. But all pre and post-operation visits can be done at any CustomEyes location for your convenience. Together with Kraff, CustomEyes offers the most technologically advanced forms of LASIK, including Intralase bladeless LASIK and CustomVue wavefront guided LASIK.

Retinal Exams

You deserve the best possible standard of care. At CustomEyes, we always aim to achieve this for you.

Because of this, we perform the Optomap® Retinal Exam with all of our patients. This is a non-invasive procedure which allows the doctor to see a much broader and more detailed view of the retina than what would be possible with conventional methods. When reviewed, the scan becomes a permanent part of your medical file. This enables the doctor to make important comparisons should any potential vision threatening conditions show themselves at a future examination. We strongly believe that the Optomap® Retinal Exam is an essential part of your comprehensive eye exam and we prescribe it for all of our patients once per year.
