Optometry Services in Chicago

IWS offers vision and eye care on-site through a partnership with a Chicago optometrist.
Optometry services include:
  • Eye exams for the whole family
  • Free or low-cost eyeglasses and contacts

Testing children’s vision as early as possible is crucial to healthy child development. According to the National Commission on Vision and Health, one in four school-age children suffers from vision problems that could have been treated if the child had been properly examined upon entering school.

The optometry department is open on MondaysWednesdays, and Thursdays.

Hours of operation change each month.

If you are an IWS medical or dental patient, we will make the appointment with you on the phone.
If you are an optometry patient only, we will transfer you to the optometrist’s office to schedule your appointment.
