I had a WONDERFUL experience here! The doctor was kind, thorough, and gave me my perfect eye prescription. The staff was warm and friendly. I was able to find a pair of glasses that day and they were made and ready within 30 minutes in the lab downstairs. WOW! Highly recommend to anyone in need of an eye exam or new glasses.


I had a last minute issue with my eyes and they fit me in right away – and I wasn’t even a patient of theirs yet! I was from out of town and they accommodated me so quickly. I might fly out to Chicago just to get my eyes examined here for now on!


This was my first time at this location and I must say, I will recommend it to my colleagues, family, and friends. Dr. Zimmerman was very thorough and clear on the type of prescription I needed. The entire staff was pleasant and fun. Sherice was very helpful in finding the selection of frames that looked GOOD on me – GREAT customer service!


Exceptional service and staff! I was looking for a new eye doctor and couldn’t be happier with my decision to choose Village Eyecare. When I walked in, I was immediately greeted by their friendly staff. It didn’t take long after that to get set up and meet with my new doctor. Soon after, the staff was already helping me decide on new glasses and providing much welcomed feedback. The whole process felt very comfortable, friendly, and professional. I would recommend this location to anyone looking for a new eye doctor.


They have lots of after-work appointments, so it was easy to make the appointment, which started on time and went smoothly. I returned a few days later to look at glasses and they kept track of my choices until I was ready to make the decision a few days after that. We are excited to have a great Eye doc just around the corner from our apartment.


I’ve been going to Village Eyecare for over 10 years now. Dr. Sarai and his staff have always made me feel comfortable and knowledgeable about my eye condition. Thank you VEC.


It’s so hard to find a place where you can find great glasses and also get fantastic care for kids. The staff is so patient and friendly, the selection is awesome, and the location is incredibly convenient as well! I absolutely love this place.


I started going to Village Eyecare on Taylor a couple of years ago since it is so close to my house. Since then I’ve referred a handful of people there. The doctors are great, the office is modern, clean, and I have absolutely nothing but good things to say about this place. One thing I like is that there’s never any pressure to purchase frames like other places that I’ve been to in the past. This place is highly recommended!


The staff here is great and the facility is always neat and clean. They don’t mind when I try on every single one of their glasses before making a decision. Ordering contacts is so simple and they can text you as soon as your order has arrived to the store. The Dr. Is informative and very nice. They make going to the eye Dr. enjoyable.


This shop is amazing. Actually I stand corrected, both the South Loop and Hyde Park locations are phenomenal. Renita in particular helped me to choose a perfect frame that illuminates my eyes and highlights my face and the girls at the South Loop location made my shopping a breeze by getting my glasses sent from Hyde Park shop to South Loop for my connivence, all the while making me feel welcomed. This place is great, stop by!


This optometrist office offers great vision care for me and my little kids. I have astigmatism that changes a little every year and am on my way to bifocals – they are managing my vision with me very well. My kids just need annual exams and they are very good with them. They run the place professionally yet friendly and casual. The frame shop always has cool new frames to pick from. I love how high tech their appointment system is – you just book online and they email or text you reminders.


The staff is one of the best I have seen at any medical facility here in town. They are friendly, and work with you to find the best available appointment, as well as a great frame selection. Dr. Sarai was friendly and patient in answering my questions and he provides detailed view of the state of your eyes in relation to age and potential challenges that may be in your path.
