Solo Eye Care’s Mission

Solo Eye Care & Eyewear Gallery was founded in 2005 as the first full-service eye care practice in Chicago’s new South Loop Community. Solo Eye Care was developed as a fusion of medicine and fashion.  We offer medical eye care services in a boutique environment featuring personalized customer service with a focus on the art and science of eyewear selection.  Our current boutique is the former home of the first Ford Motor Company outside the city of Detroit and is a designated landmark building by the city of Chicago.  Great care was taken in our renovation to reveal a chic art gallery feel while preserving the character of the space to create an enjoyable, comfortable experience for our patients.
