Access to eye care is of vital importance to the health of every person. There is no better feather for Naperville to have in its cap than to support the value of optometry and good visual health in the community.
Dr. Adam Black, OD, opened Couture Vision at 232 S. Washington St. in 2012. Today, he and his associate, Dr. Kori Klover, see patients in both Naperville and Bolingbrook – seven days a week.
“My eyes are terrible,” Dr. Black said. “I remember going to the eye doctor when I was in fifth grade and, after getting glasses – finally being able to see the leaves on the trees. That is why I decided to become an optometrist.”
Drs. Black and Klover handle routine eye exams, prescribe corrective lenses and contacts and they work with patients exhibiting other eye conditions like glaucoma, cataracts and diabetes. Naperville was a natural location for his practice because he liked the quaint atmosphere and comfortable feel.
Couture Vision offers the “Eye Unleashed” discount program for those who do not have vision insurance.
Vision Art Eye Care
Dr. Paula Mintchell at Vision Art Eye Care, 1995 Springbrook Square Dr., cares for the entire family, including infants and children of all ages, adults and children and adults with special needs. The Illinois College of Optometry graduate has a specialty in pediatrics so she is well equipped to handle patients of all ages. In fact, she participates in the “Infant See” program that offers free exams for children between six and twelve months.
“We feel that it is important to get children into the eye care system at an early age,” Dr. Mintchell said. “In fact, the American Optometric Association recommends that children should have eye examinations between six and twelve months, between two and three years, and again before starting school.”
Mintchell’s full family optometry practice caters to the entire family, performing comprehensive eye examinations and prescribing glasses and contact lenses. She also accommodates after hour ocular emergencies and accepts most insurance plans.
Dr. Stephen Steinmetz, a Board-certified optometrist, has been practicing in Naperville since 1987. His practice on Ogden Avenue, next to Portillo’s, now owned by MyEyeDr, is a national practice, open six days a week and several evenings.
“As an optometrist, I am my patients’ primary eye care gatekeeper. If I detect a problem needing surgery – like cataracts or a retina detachment, I will refer them to a specialist,” Dr. Steinmetz said. “Otherwise, I will treat them here.”
The Illinois College of Optometry graduate examines eyes for patients of all ages and will prescribe necessary eyewear and/or medication as required. MyEyeDr is also able to sell glasses, sunglasses and contacts from the office with an average turnaround time of less than a week.
MyEyeDr accepts all vision insurances.
Optometry and Eyewear Gallery
Dr. Ann Marie Surdich-Pitra has been caring for Naperville residents’ eyes for almost 25 years – first as part of a larger practice and then, for the past10 years, from her Optometry and Eyewear Gallery at 1712 Ogden Ave., Ste., D in Lisle.
As a Doctor of Optometry, she cares for patients of all ages, handling primary eye health and prescribing corrective lenses (both contacts and eyeglasses). She also assists patients with corneal eye disease, dry eye issues, headaches, hypertension, diabetes, computer eye fatigue and other eye diseases and does LASIK treatment consultations.
Dr. Surdich-Pitra takes virtually all insurances and has an eyeglass lab on-site. Her gallery offers all types and styles of eyeglasses, including prescription sunglasses.
