Family ophthalmology practice now in third generation

RIVER FOREST, IL, October 12, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Kirk Eye Center announced on Thursday that new and returning patients now have access to a totally redesigned, dynamic and user-friendly eye care website. Combining patient education with engaging visuals, the new Kirk Eye Center website is designed to catch the eye and make patients feel comfortable with vision correction procedures and other treatments.

Custom content on the new website serves as a robust resource for LASIK vision correction, traditional and laser cataract surgery and other advanced services.

“We do everything from eye exams to advanced procedures in an accredited ambulatory surgical center,” said Dr. Kent Kirk, board-certified ophthalmologist at Kirk Eye Center. “Our goal is to provide patients with comprehensive options for correcting their vision and keeping their eyes healthy. The new website really makes all of our options accessible to patients.”

Kirk Eye Center has been providing comprehensive treatment to patients in greater Chicagoland since 1955. The practice was founded by Dr. Harold Kirk. His sons, Dr. Kent Kirk and Dr. Scott Kirk, joined in the 1980s, while a third generation of Kirks, Dr. Tyler and Dr. Carter, recently became the next set of eye doctors to continue the family legacy.

Its long history in the community combined with the doctors’ commitment to excellence in patient care has made Kirk Eye Center an institution in the Chicago area. Many appreciative patients appear on the new practice website in video galleries where they share their unique stories of life after cataract surgery or LASIK.

These custom video clips feature the patients enjoying their favorite activities without glasses or contacts. The candid scenes transition to footage of the patients visiting their eye doctor at Kirk Eye Center, demonstrating the relationships the practice builds with patients.

“As a family practice, it’s important for patients to feel at home when they visit,” said ophthalmologist Dr. Scott Kirk. “One of our greatest joys is having patients come back after LASIK or cataract surgery and tell us how much their lives have changed for the better.”

This commitment to optimal results encompasses more than eye health and vision correction. Kirk Eye Center also offers a selection of cosmetic services to help patients enjoy a more youthful appearance. Options include BOTOX Cosmetic, dermal fillers and aesthetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty). All of these treatments are performed by specially trained physicians with experience in cosmetic procedures.
