We have now merged with ACCUVISION 




Eye Doctor


Dear Valued Patients,

          We have some very exciting news to share with you. Thanks to your continued support, Towne Vision has grown steadily and outgrown its current location. In order to continue providing the excellent level of care you've come to expect, we have decided to merge with Dr. James Doherty and his locally owned private practices. AccuVISION was voted "Best Optical" in the last Pioneer Press Reader's Survey. Dr. Doherty and his associates have been providing quality eye care since 1982. Their success has allowed Dr. Doherty to invest in the latest instrumentation needed in the diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma and macular degeneration. Their Round Lake Beach lens laboratory can fabricate bifocals in under two hours! All of the AccuVISIONs can provide one hour service on single vision lenses (non-bifocals). Your pretest exam will now include an auto-refractor/keratometer which gives the doctor a more exact reading of your refraction and eye curvature measurement. Each office is also able to provide digital retinal photography which enables the doctor to have a permanent record of the back of the eye for better follow-up.  

          I'm now practicing at the Lindenhurst location, which is about three miles west of our current location. My manager, Sonja, who has been with me since the opening of Towne Vision, will be part of the managing staff in Lindenhurst. The Gurnee AccuVISION is inside the mall, a few stores north of the TJ Maxx (Entrance J and turn left at the food court). My optician, Christina, will be working at the Gurnee AccuVISION for your convenience.

          Towne Vision will be closing at the end of August and initially all records will be transferred to the Lindenhurst AccuVISION. If you'd prefer to have future care at any of the other AccuVISIONs, please call Sonja and she'll be happy to transfer your records. I will be taking a sabbatical in the fall of 2014 but will be available for appointments until then.

          You will be happy to know AccuVISION has a large selection of frames including designers such as: Prada, Gucci, Bvlgari, Anne Klein, Coach, Maui Jim, Oakley, Versace, Tiffany, Tag Heuer and many more. They have package frames with lenses starting at $39.00. Their Gurnee office is the only provider for Vision Service Plans in Chicagoland that is open on Sundays! I have verified that they take all of the same insurances we did previously and several more. They additionally offer medical insurance billing and have staff expertly trained to help you maximize your benefits.
