Optical center will bring patient-centric care and eyewear to Lakemoor 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 Lakemoor’s community. The new location at 28928 W Route 120 is expected to open in June 2021 and will be the seventh Shopko Optical center in the Chicago area.   

Kathryn Wilson, O.D., will provide patients with comprehensive eye care services, including eye exams, contact lens fitting, and diagnosis and treatment of eye disease. Dr. Wilson graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry.  

“Opening this new center in Lakemoor is a big win for our patients and the Shopko Optical family,” said Russ Steinhorst, Shopko Optical CEO. “Dr. Wilson has been working in the area for a long time and consistently strives to establish a personal connection with each of her patients. She is eager to continue serving the Lakemoor community at Shopko Optical.”  

With the opening of Shopko Optical in Lakemoor, five to seven jobs will be created.  

In addition, Shopko Optical’s Kids in Focus program will work with Lakemoor’s local Lions Club to identify deserving children within the area to receive a comprehensive eye exam and pair of glasses at no charge from Shopko Optical. Those looking to participate can contact their local Lions Club.   

Shopko Optical accepts most major vision plans, including EyeMed, UHC Vision, Davis Vision, Superior Vision, Avesis, and many more. Shopko Optical is also an open-access provider for VSP.
