Optical center will bring patient-centric care and eyewear to Elgin community
GREEN BAY, Wis. – Shopko Optical, a leader in providing trusted eye care to communities for over 40 years, is looking forward to being a part of Elgin’s community. The new location at 1190 S. Randall Road is expected to open in October and will be the third Shopko Optical center in the Chicago area. Patients can look forward to complete eye care services, including eye exams, contact lens fitting and diagnosis and treatment of eye disease.
“With the help of our dedicated optometrists around the area, we determined Elgin was an ideal and convenient location for patients seeking eye care,” said Russ Steinhorst, Shopko Optical CEO. “We are pleased to join the Elgin community and deliver the patient-centered care we are known for.”
With the opening of Shopko Optical in Elgin, five to seven jobs will be created.
In addition, Shopko Optical’s Project Eyecare program will work with Elgin’s local Lions Club to identify deserving children within the area to receive a free comprehensive eye exam and pair of glasses. Those looking to participate can contact their local Lions Club.
Shopko Optical accepts most major vision plans, including EyeMed, UnitedHealthcare, Spectera and many more. To certify coverage, book an appointment with an optometrist or find a Shopko Optical center, visit Shopko.com.
