Optometry

The Illinois Eye Institute at Alivio Medical Center

"The program provides eye care to people who need it most, but who are least likely to receive it. Many of the patients in areas targeted by the program have not seen a regular doctor in years and have underlying medical issues or undiagnosed conditions such as glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy."  Leonard Messner, Executive Director of the Illinois Eye Institute. 

The vision outreach clinic at Alivio Medical Center is at our Morgan Street location and is staffed by optometrists and third- and fourth-year students from the Illinois College of Optometry. All speak Spanish.
