• I want more than my vision checked, I want a complete eye health exam.

    That's why I go to Palermo Eye Care.

  • I’m not a big fan of big-box store vision centers.

    At Palermo Eye Care, I get personal service.

  • I don’t always wear my eyeglasses

    ...but when I do, I want to look COOL

  • I want to be able to contact my doctor at any time.

    Palermo Eye Care has someone on call 24/7 for emergencies.

Arlington Heights optometrist of choice since 1979
