Our Story

Dr. Sarai and Dr. Sood | Leading Chicago Optometrists

Dr. Sarai and Dr. Sood are both graduates of the highly prestigious University of California-Berkeley School of Optometry. They met on the first day of class while looking for their classroom and immediately recognized there would be a long friendship. Little did they know at the time they would later marry and share a life of profession, values, culture, family and friends.

After graduation, early experiences in various settings convinced the doctors that a private practice was right for them. So when an opportunity presented itself, they bought a well-established practice in University Village on Taylor Street. The doctors recognized its great potential and added more services, technology and top-of-the-line optical products. The community embraces these changes and the practice flourished.

But it didn’t stop in University Village. Two years later, the Chicago optometrists realized their neighborhood, South Loop, was in great need of an eye care provider. And when a space became available they opened a new location in the South Loop. It was at this time the names of both practices were changed to ‘Village Eyecare.’

In in the Summer of 2014, Village Eyecare acquired the Hyde Park location, which was a private practice, formerly known as ‘Concept Eyecare.’

The latest addition to the Village Eyecare family is our Wicker Park location, acquired in the Fall of 2016 and located on Division Street in Wicker Park! The office was an existing private practice, formally known as ‘Eye Candy Optics’.

“I always liked the idea of ‘Village’ since every neighborhood in Chicago feels like its own Village. I wanted to bring that feeling into our practices, especially since I found being part of the community so deeply satisfying.” – Dr. Sood

“In our offices, every patient matters. It’s our patients who really drive us daily to deliver the best in eye care. This is why our patients have a very personalized eye care experience when they visit our offices. We are very proud of the practices we have built, especially the relationships formed over the years in the communities where we live and serve.” – Dr. Sarai
