We are running Hot Chocolate's 15k/5k to raise awareness and money for The Blind Service Association!

Posted on October 23rd, 2021 in Announcements

Red Eye Eyewear has organized a team of runners and walkers to partake in this year's Hot Chocolate 15k/5k. We are raising money for a VERY good cause which is near and dear to out hearts: The Blind Service Association (BSA.) The BSA started in Chicago 98 years agoas a group that read books mail and letters to the visually impaired.  The BSA has since grown to provide countless programs such as summer camps for blind and visually impaired youth, computer training, support groups, job training, senior programs and newsletters. They give over $30,000 a year in scholarships and yes, the volunteers continue to read to clients.  None of this costs a penny!  Please give whatever you can it really does go a long way. We sincerely appreciate any amount you can give. CLICK HERE TO HELP

Thank all very much,

Red Eye is one of the highest rated optometry offices in Chicago. Our customers speak for themselves. See more reviews directly on Yelp

We love this place! Thorough eye exam. Dr. Gifford explains everything as he's great! Excellent selection of eye wear. Attentive staff. Super clean and plenty of street parking at their new location.

C D. ★★★★★

Red Eye is the best optometry shop in the entire city, no bull! Dr. Gifford and his staff are always friendly, cool, and on the ball. I would not dream of going anywhere else for my peepers and neither should you. Get in there and get your eyes checked and pick up some cool frames while you're at it (they have so many).
