Welcome to Wicker Park Eye Center
Welcome to Wicker Park Eye Center, a highly sought-after eye care center located in Chicago and led by board-certified ophthalmologist Daniel Tepper, M.D. Our practitioners take great pride in providing the latest in eye care.
Our office stresses the importance of compassion in healthcare. We focus on the needs of our patients, never losing sight of the specific reason they came to our office. We treat all of our patients like unique individuals. Our relentless commitment to the best ocular care includes a deep respect for our patients' schedules and their time as we strive to start all appointments on schedule. At our practice, we want our staff to feel like family to you, and we want our patients to feel welcome.
Our Chicago ophthalmology practice, Wicker Park Eye Center, is located in the medical office building on the AMITA Health Saint Mary Campus. The recently updated office is clean, comfortable, and spacious. We offer several amenities to keep you comfortable while you wait, including:
- Television entertainment
- Complimentary valet parking
While most visits take place at our office, surgeries are performed at the Saints Mary and Elizabeth Hospital.
Our practice also includes a designer optical shop with several brands of prescription eyeglasses and lenses available. If you are struggling with your lenses, our doctors have specialty training to help you find a custom solution. Finding the right frames to fit your facial features, preferences, and style can be difficult. When you shop for glasses online or with a retail store optician, you lose the benefit of the experience and expertise of an eye doctor. Our board-certified ophthalmologist and residency-trained optometrist have undergone special training to provide custom eyewear that you could not receive from an optician. Together with our on-site opticians, we can help you find a pair of eyeglasses that look and feel great.
Our affiliations include:
- American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO)
- American Medical Association (AMA)
- American Optometric Association (AOA)
