Together We Build Dreams

With more than 50 years of experience in the field, our doctors do not simply provide the highest level of vision correction. Drs. Helen, Neil, Margaret, Aleksandra, and Namrata have all worked hand in hand with some of the most respected eye surgeons in Chicago and the Midwest. Each doctor is trained and licensed to manage difficult medical issues that may be affecting the eyes. We value a great pair of glasses and the safest, most comfortable contact lenses. But our singular, the most paramount focus will always be your eyes.

Dr. Malgorzata Kiwacz

Doctor of Optometry

Education: Loyola University – Chicago, Illinois College of Optometry

Margaret became a Doctor of Optometry because, in part, she enjoys Pediatrics and working with children. Her best advice is to get kids to have their first eye exam when they can reliably read the alphabet. Being proactive with children will help them be better prepared for the stress their eyes will endure as they enter the wired classroom and beyond.
