    My husband and I have been going to Eye Society for two and a half years and I wouldn't go anywhere else - yes it's that good.  Firstly, Dr. Tanvi Mago is a knowledgeable, professional and skilled optometrist who does thorough eye exams with the latest modern eye equipment. She also takes the time to answer any questions you have and she is friendly and approachable. Heads up - you can go to Dr. Mago for medical eye issues too. She's great at that too!

    Secondly, the selection of glasses offered is expansive, stylish and moderately priced (given they are designer brands). I like the ProDesign frames they have very much. I think they have a list of the brands they carry on their website.

    Lastly, the service is impeccable. Dr. Mago and her team really go the extra mile to ensure customers walk away satisfied with their experience and their new pair of glasses. Dan, who is no longer there, was unbelievably adept in finding the exact right pair of glasses to suit a face. Now, Anna Marie and Rebecca are carrying on that tradition. They are super friendly and very helpful, especially when dealing with insurance companies. The team helps in any way they can. Recently a frame I bought a couple years ago broke and Dr. Mago and her team went above and beyond to help me get the problem fixed even though the warranty had expired. It's that type of service that builds a loyal customer base - as demonstrated by the long list of five star reviews.

    I would recommend Dr. Mago and Eye Society to anyone and everyone!

    "I travel to Chicago fairly often and first visited this place a couple years ago...To date, I've gotten two pair of glasses at Eye Society and couldn't be happier with my experience there! Dr. Mago is very friendly and approachable, as is the rest of the staff. They have a great selection of glasses, and are helpful without being pushy- unlike a ot of high-end eyeglass stores. Also, I get complimented on my glasses all the time, which is a nice bonus. :-) Finally, I've also gone in for severe eye allergy issues and was very happy with the prompt and effective treatment I got. I highly reccommend this place in every respect- great service, friendly staff, and excellent value!"

They we're very patient while I tried on many may glasses and also gave me great advice on what looked best. Needless to say I left very happy and I can't wait for my new glasses to arrive."

    "I had the pleasure of visiting Eye Society on a weekend trip to Chicago a couple of months ago.  To my surprise, this hidden gem had an outstanding selection of designer frames at competitive prices.   Granted it is a higher end optical but the doctor (btw is very knowledgeable and patient) and staff are honest and only rec what is needed. Needless to say left ordering a pair of prescription TAG H. polarized sunglasses and had it shipped to me in Dallas.  The staff there actually called me a few weeks later to see how I was doing with new shades.  Now that is costumer service!... I would definitely come back for future exams."

    "This is such a hidden gem! It is upstairs in an office (?) building with a cool projection sign on the sidewalk.

    They were super nice and have a really good selection of frames. We were shopping for my BF's glasses (he got a great looking pair and he is very happy w/ them) and I found a heap of frames for myself too. I was bummed that I had just gotten a new pair just a couple of months before.... wah-wah-wah.  I'm going back here next time I need them because they had such a good selection ('specially for the small in the face/ head types).  oh- and yes they carry the cool stuff.

    I did find some pretty cool sunglasses that I couldn't resist though!"

    Phenomenal service, excellent taste! The eye doctor is amazing, has excellent knowledge and takes the time to listen and guide rather than power through patients.  Also, she has taken the time to "discuss" options and next steps and is well read on the latest knowledge.

    This store is one of those places that ranks high artistically and technically - here's why:

    Here's what happened:  I recently had PRK (rendition of Lasik) surgery and hadn't had a follow up visit for some time (6 months or so).  So, I went in and had my eyes checked by Dr. Mago.  She checked my eyes, cross checked my history and then went on to do both a machine based assessment and followed it up with a manual assessment to note the difference in my eye pressure to be very certain.  I was discussing this technique with my BF (an eye surgeon) and he was quite impressed by this f/u technique and only an individual with both general and specific knowledge could think to do this.  

    The store is clean and focuses on good solid service, (clearly great technique), and provides you with a wide range of glasses and sunglasses to choose from.  The staff is phenomenal and helps you focus on what you are looking for, provides suggestions and are dead honest about the glasses and choices (and never once pushy, my personal pet peeve!!).  It's a very laid back environment, kind of like a spa for the eyes - I'd go there just to relax and walk out with some AMAZING sunglasses!!!!

    Clearly, I'd go back.  I've recommended this store to both friends and family in Chicago and the NW Indiana area.  I am sincerely impressed and plan to go back for my annual eye check up.

    FYI: Parking is SUPER easy !!!

    "Dr. Mago is one of the most altruistic people I have ever met. I have a student named Reggie, he always has to stand 1foot away from the chalk board to see.  I took him to Eye Society to see Dr. Mago. She immediately diagnosed him as being near sighted and having a stint. Knowing that my student could not afford the glasses he needed she found him a sponsor. I really appreciate the care and service Dr. Mago gave to Reggie and I hope that you support her practice."

    "I would definitely recommend this Eyeglass Boutique to all of my friends.  My whole experience was one to remember, let me tell you that they are all about the client that walks through the door.  
    I have always worn contacts and have never been a real fan of eye glasses, until I went to Eye Society.  The gentleman that helped me (DAN); picked out my glasses absolutely personalizing each pair.  Since my initial visit I have already gone back and purchased another pair that was recommended to me.  I will definitely return and continue to recommend their location."

    I found Eye Society through Yelp because I am new to chicago and needed an eye exam and new glasses.  The exam was pretty standard, but in the midst of my visit I was able to get a newer version of my contacts (which are great), new glasses and new sunglasses.  I am happy, the service, especially from Ann Marie was wonderful.  Will be my eye doctor going forward.

    I've seen a lot of eyeglass places & I've seen a lot of optometrists.  Eye Society is a great eyeglass place with a great optometrist.

    There is a saying jingling around that's breezed by me a time or two which is:  You get what you pay for.  What I'm saying here is that Eye Society isn't necessarily cheap.  I'm sure you can go cheaper at Lens Crafters.  In the end, however, the girls at ES took great care of me, put me into a couple pair of great glasses and I can see for miles and miles and miles and miles and miiiilllleeesss.... aw yeah...  I can see for miles and miles... I can see for miles and~~

    Yeah.  Anyway, sorry if you don't listen to the Who.  Retro moment.

    If you're going low budget, this probably isn't your place, but if you're more the type to pay a little extra for quality and service, I would recommend Eye Society to you hands down.

    5*... dig it.

    Eye Society is great! This is not your typical commercial vision and eyeglass store. Dr. Mago is the best eye doctor I've been to in years. The staff is attentive and friendly.

    My exam with Dr. Mago was pleasant and I didn't have to wait long to be seen. She really took her time in examining my eyes. I bought a pair of fabulous Cole Haan eyeglasses, and I'm very happy with my purchase. I've received so many compliments. I can't wait to pick out a pair of prescription sunglasses. Something I've been wanting for a long time. Their eyeglass selection is great, so expect to be there a little longer than planned because it took forever for me to decide which ones I wanted.

    Parking isn't bad. I found street parking just a half block away. Give yourself extra time if you do decide to drive. Their hours are convenient, and they have a great referral program.

    I had my first appointment with Eye Society today.  After much communication with the WONDERFUL AnnaMarie, how patient can one person be?  I was welcomed into the office warmly and felt right at ease.  Laughs shared and then the doctor appeared.  This was the most comfortable experience I've ever had especially when it comes to medical/ocular mashed all together.  The doctor explained everything perfectly and mad me feel great about the choice that I had made to make an appointment with them.  Overall completely satisfied and found out that my eyes are just fine, still dilated, but just fine!  Definitely recommended.  AG

    I am a doctor who realized fairly recently that my daily headaches are probably due to some vision problem. I decided that the day before I leave for my winter vacation, I will deal with the issue and have my eyes checked. I called several places and none could accommodate my request for an urgent appointment. But then I get a call back from Eye Society saying that Dr. Mago is wiling to extend her work hours if I am willing to come at 7:30 pm.

    This alone earned this place 4 stars! I often do this for my own patients and anytime you have a health care professional treating you this way, you know you have a keeper.

    I got to my appointment. I met Dr. Mago. I had my examination. I was told that it's time for my first pair of glasses. I was showed options around the store without any pressure to purchase from their stock. In fact, she wrote a prescription and gave it to me, in case I wanted to purchase my first pair in another place. She explained add-ons that I may or may not want and was totally upfront regarding what's necessary and what's borderline frivolous.

    The next day I left for my vacation and was gone for 2 weeks. I received 2 emails from Dr. Mago, one letting me know when my glasses are being shipped. The second email was giving me instructions on how and where I could pick up the glasses outside her store hours because I really do not have time to pick it up on weekdays.

    This is why this place deserves 5 stars. Service like this is hard to find and certainly difficult to practice. Dr. Mago is a keeper.

    After researching Yelp to try and find a well-reviewed place that offered the new Tag Heuer frames I was looking for, I came upon "Eye Society".  I am in the city frequently running errands and it sounded like a good place to check out.  They were very easy to work with (I came in with my own prescription) and my new glasses arrived exactly when promised.  Although a bit expensive, (I knew what I was getting into with Tag frames) the Yelp offer sealed the deal for me.  Parking was easy both when I ordered and picked up, on a weekday afternoon.

    Between my wife and I, we have purchased 5 pairs of prescription glasses and sunglasses from Eye Society. I have been wearing glasses for almost 30 years and I have to say she is the best Optometrist I have had. Look up her credentials, really solid!
    The staff is very knowledgeable and professional with a good understanding of insurance claims processing.
    They have a vast selection of frames and they do special order from any designer.
    A couple of months ago I was leaving for vacation and needed prescription sunglasses fast. Eye Society was able to turn around my order in 4 days! Well-done people!
    I would highly suggest Eye Society!

    I have gotten 3 pair of glasses, both lenses and frames, from Eye Society and purchased frames for 2 other pair elsewhere and had Eye Society help select and order lenses. 2 exams and 5 pair of glasses later I can say they are my first choice.

    A very diverse, good selection of frame manufacturers along with staff committed to customer service and competitive pricing makes Eye Society a destination for anyone looking for a good optometrist and/or glasses.

    I travelled to Chicago recently, and I lost my glasses. Not only that, I didn't remember my prescription either. I showed up at Eye society and they accommodated me right away. Dr.Mago took the time off her busy Schedule and gave me an appointment . Dr. Mago is extremely knowledgeable and friendly, she took my complete eye exam, and I not only picked up eye glasses from the amazing collection they have. She also sat with me and went over contact lens options for me. I walked out buying 2 frames and a prescription for contacts for the first time. Even though I live in NY I plan to go back to her for my annual exams, she was simply great. And the staff was nice and friendly as well.  I totally recommend this place over all the other chain eye centers out there.

    I've been going to Eye Society for a little over a year now. Dr. Mago is exceptional. She is very knowledgeable, professional and took the time to answer all of my questions from why I shouldn't sleep in my contacts (I know, I know, it's bad) to whether or not I'm a good candidate for Lasik.

    I also got an excellent deal on a pair of Oliver Peoples sunglasses, that  Dan at Eye Society was able to miraculously repair after I accidentally bent them!

    Overall Eye Society has great staff, great prices on designer-wear and  super convenient location/hours. I look forward to going back for new frames and another pair of great sunglasses come summertime!

    Love this place!  My daughter and I needed to take care of all our eye care needs. We found Eye Society and it fit the bill. Dr.Mago was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. She addressed each of my eye issues without rushing. She was also great with my 10 year old. She explained everything and was very patient. The office staff there was also very helpful. They showed me frames that fit my face, my style, as well as my budget. There was no pressure to buy anything nor was I made to feel bad if I didn't spend tons of money. They explained how much each thing cost so that I knew exactly  what I was getting and for what price. There even was a great selection of sunglasses. Eye Society is a true gem. Amazing doctor, down to earth staff,and a stylish selection of frames and sunglasses.

    Two weeks ago I went to visit my fiance at Northwestern, and after lunch I saw the sign for Eye Society. Knowing him, I knew he hadn't had an eye exam since he moved to Chicago. So I went in to get a business card for him, the place was really nice, and the people were friendly. Last week my fiance went to Eye Society his check up.  He told me what a great thing it was we walked in there that day. He bought another pair of glasses, which he needed badly!  He just said how the staff and the optometrist were helpful and answered all his questions. He's a nerd, so I'm sure he brought a list with him. So, thanks to Eye Society for the great service.  Just in case you're in the area, pay them a visit, you won't regret it.

    I am happy with my purchase and experience at Eye Society. My exam was thorough and the doctor provided helpful information. She even helped me know what was wrong with a pair of sunglasses purchased elsewhere and gave advice on how to get them fixed. Dan was very keen on making sure I got the best frames in my price range and he did not let me get something that would not be good for me.

    I have had glasses for about 30 years, and this is the first time I have been happy. I have received comments such as "you look energized" and "I like the new look". I feel pretty!

    Also, they accept Care Credit (and this is NOT a plug for CC, but it's nice to have a boutique eye care place to go to even though I am uninsured and not in-the-money at the moment).

    I had not bought a pair of glasses in about five years.  The eye doctor was very thorough.  She explained everything she was doing and why.  I really appreciated being told the why.  When it came time to select frames, Dan, the Manager/Option was fantastic!  I really was open to trying any frames he thought would look good on me.  Even though there were two other people in there picking out frames, he took his time with each of us to make sure we got exactly what we wanted.  In the end, I choose brown frame with olive accents and retro looking pair with sparkles in the corners.  He explained why certain frames worked on me and why others did not.  Once the frames were picked out, he explained the different types of lenses and coatings as well as the different thickness of lenses.  I have never had an optician explain all of this too me before and I have been wearing glasses since I was nine!  When I went to pick up my glasses the optician that helped me was more than happy to keep adjusting the frames until I felt they were sitting properly not just until he thought they were good enough.  I can  not recommend this place enough!!

    Great place. Great people. Just recently went in to get my eyes checked and purchase glasses. Dr. Mago was extremely patient with me (It was my first eye exam in a decade) and she was super helpful in answering all my questions. Dan, the office manager, was equally amazing. He understood exactly what frame shapes worked best with my face and in a matter of minutes, had a huge selection for me to try on. Dr. Mago then priced out my choices according to my insurance coverage so I had all the information to make an informed decision. Awesome experience. Thanks Eye Society!

    This place was interesting, in a bad way. First of all, the examination took about a half hour including the contact fitting. I wound up spending more than double what I spent on my previous exam; which was more thorough. Then I went ahead and looked at some frames they had. I wish I could comment about price but there were no price tags. Can't trust a place with no price tags, if they did I am sure it would make me laugh... kind of like the cost of the exam.

    I am always wary of high-end eyeglass boutiques, afraid that I am being ripped off for expensive glasses that look funny on me sold by snooty salespeople... but not at this store! I was treated well from the minute I walked in, of course it helped that I sort of knew what I wanted.  The exam was thorough, she was better than many opthalmologists.  She also has exquisite taste, and recommended glasses that fit ME, not her agenda, but then again the stock in the store were all classy.  I'd expected the frames to be pricey but not really - there are the Gucci's but the ones I chose were $200 range, not that much different from the suburban chainstores, and so much more stylish!  I can't wait to go pick them up.  Overall a very pleasant experience, professional, kind, and courteous.  Why can't all stores be like this?

    I never thought that a trip to the eye doctor could be so quick and easy. That's because Dr. Mago is the best of the best! Do to my situation with my family and not having the means to pay for glasses, Dr. mago found a sponsor to support me and I received my glasses free of charge. I never loved going to the eye doctor, but Dr. Mago change how I feel about the trip. So if your looking for a doctor who specializes in eyesight, as well as care for her patients, then eye society is the place for you.

Modern.  Fun.  Eye Society is not your mother's eye doctor, office or frame selection.  The minute you walk in the door you are aware that the office is different; it has atmosphere.  And then you are greeted by Dan with a big smile and hello.  The frame selection is tremendous.  And Dan has a gift for picking out those frames that you might not normally chose but you wind up falling in love with instantly.  I had to chose between 4 or 5 frames!  So sit back and let him do his thing, you won't be disappointed!  Dr. Mago is wonderfully patient, efficient, professional and friendly all at the same time.  She is very knowledgeable and is willing to discuss all your questions and concerns until you are satisfied.  Don't be afraid to ask!  Dr. Mago and Dan are a great team as they work together to give you a highly personalized experience regarding your vision and eye health, not a routine "office visit."  You won't be disappointed!

    I bought my glasses and contacts from here. I did a bit of research on the web to look for what I wanted and these guys were able to answer all my questions, i found them very knowledgeable and incredibly helpful. I also had some specific requirements and these guys bent over backwards to meet my requests and also ended up with a very good price. They also have a great range of frames. Eye Society is definitely recommended if you want a new pair of eye glasses or contacts!

    I have been wearing glasses for almost twenty years and in that time have visited numerous optometrists and ophthalmologists. My experience at Dr. Mago's office far exceeded my expectations. She has advanced technology for the eye exam, several lines of fashionable frames (from which both my husband and I purchased new glasses) and incredibly accommodating hours of operation. Dan, the optician, is patient, friendly and really takes the time to fit a pair of glasses that not only look good, but fit your personality. Dr. Mago was very patient, knowledgeable and was a tremendous help assisting with my insurance questions. I wish all my healthcare appointments were such a pleasant visit.

    My experience with Eye Society was wonderful! Dan was the best at picking out glasses that fit my face. I would never have chosen the pair that he picked for me, but once I realized they looked good, I was sold. I have received nothing but wonderful compliments on these glasses. They have such a great selection of styles in the store. I would recommend going to Dr Mago as well. She was very friendly and professional. Great location near Michigan Ave.

    Highly recommended.  The doctor is very knowledgeable and the optician is super helpful.  My prescription is pretty powerful but they were able to get me into thinner lenses than I've had in the past without a lot of extra expense. The atmosphere in the office is sophisticated but upbeat.  They carry a great variety of frames from more moderate priced to higher end designer frames.  I ended up buying two pairs and will probably go back for contacts.  Will definitely return for future glasses and exams.

    I recently had my eyes checked for both contact lenses and glasses at Eye Society.  I still cannot believe how wonderful my experience was!  I have been wearing glasses/contacts for almost twenty-five years, and I have to say that this is the best eye doctor I have ever been to.  
    The selection of frames and sunglasses is perfect!  And, the doctor's assistant was exceptionally helpful in finding frames that fit not only my face, but my style.  I have a really high prescription and they did a fabulous job of making the glasses look good on me - a hundred times better than my previous pair.  
    Also, I have never met an eye doctor more knowledgeable about her field.  I learned more in my one visit than I have in the collective 25 years that I have been seeing eye doctors.  The equipment is top-notch!  The doctor has the latest technology and, if you want, she will explain exactly what she's doing.  She also gave me great advice on how to take care of my eyes.  very professional and fantastic service!
    In sum, Eye Society provided me professional and excellent service.  I was extremely comfortable there and will never go to another optometrist again!!
