We know you have a lot of choices when it comes to eye care, but at Bright Eyes Family Vision, we do things differently. We are committed to serving all of our patients with the very best in accuracy, hospitality, and selection. With a caring, personal touch that no chain store could ever come close to providing, we are the premier eye care provider in the Hampshire-Pingree Grove area.

Dr. Kara Williams has developed a patient care approach that is different from anything that you have ever experienced. When patients visit our office for the first time, they are welcomed into a calming, friendly environment. We take great care to provide our patients with an experience personally tailored to their needs and wants.

Our doctors perform a very thorough exam that can uncover hidden, symptomless, potentially sight-threatening eye disorders not found by a simple vision screening. By using the latest technology available, we are able to provide a comfortable, anxiety-free exam for patients of all ages. All patients will also receive an in depth consultation to explain the findings, their significance, and a personalized treatment plan.

We look forward to serving the vision needs of you and your family! We accept most major vision and medical plans. Give us a call at (224) 569-1001 and we'd be happy to check if we're in network with your insurance!

"My visit to Bright Eyes was nothing short of great. Dr. Williams was very professional. She explained each procedure and what information each procedure provided. She shared images of my eyes and explained what she looked for in each image, which no other eye doctor I have visited with ever did. Dr. Williams provided a thorough examination and I highly recommend her."

Out of all of the eye docs and their staff I’ve seen over the years this group is by far the best. They take time to go over all of your concerns and genuinely care about not only your eye health but yourself too. They also will help you pick out the coolest or prettiest glasses and make sure it fits your style.
