Great overall experience with my Lasik procedure for both my eyes. Dr. Kirk & the staff were fantastic throughout the entire process. I'm so pumped that I don't have to wear contacts or glasses ever again! More

This is the second time I’ve been to Kirk Eye Center on Harlem. I could not be more pleased. I’ve never had to wait more than a minute or 2 after I arrive. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I’ve seen the technician Rose and Dr Kirk Jr both times and enjoyed being assisted by both. There is even plenty of parking. Glad to have them caring for my diabetic and other needs More

Gurnee Kirk is my "go to home office". Recently had the Femto/Lasik cataract surgery at the surgical center in River Forest. I cannot begin to tell you how professional and yet personal everyone was I came in contact with. From the doctors and technicians, to staff and even the terrific van driver. Everything went so smoothly and I was informed every inch of the way in a very successful procedure. Even the followups being turned over to my long time Optometrist just down the street from me. Five stars is not enough... twenty or more is necessary. Choose Kirk Eye Center, you'll always be grateful you did. Darrell May, Antioch IL. More

I knew that eventually I would need Cataract surgery. I attempted to find a surgeon, but I was disappointed with reviews until I changed my eye doctor to Dr Crawford in Antioch who agreed that I would benefit from surgery and recommended Kirk Eye Center in Gurnee. My experience has been nothing short of miraculous. The appointments were prompt and professional. The procedure was PAINLESS, and recovery has been free of any problems! The results exceeded my expectations. In my closet, I can tell the difference between Navy and black. I don't need a flashlight to see the floor in my car. I can see the back of my cabinets. Under the exceptional operation and continuing support, I receive from Dr. Kirk and Dr. Crawford, I am extremely pleased with the outcoming! More

I've been a Kirk patient since I was a kid-- my dad has been a patient of theirs for even longer. I had moved away, but have returned to help my parents. I always thought of them as completely trustworthy, but recently they performed magic for me. TLDR: Hiral Patel gave me the best prescription I've had in almost two decades and Viviana Cano eased my anxiety over switching back to contact lenses after almost three decades of wearing only glasses. Now, all the extra details. Last year, my vision was so bad that I applied for blind disability. My mom and dad insisted that I come home and go to Kirk for a definitive evaluation. Five hours into the appointment, my future was bleak. The final recommendation, a week later, was surgery. My parents were totally ready and willing to pay for it, but I hate spending their money and put it off put if off put it off. I'm going to skip the specifics on the stuff about the bad diabetic protocol prescribed by my primary and how ! ginned up the courage to change my own insulin dosage and how that probably saved my life and jump right to the day when a friend told me that her eyes didn't track together and she didn't see in stereo but wearing hard lenses gave her real vision for several hours a day. I immediately thought "let's get me over to Kirk and ask them about this." I was almost too shy to make the appointment, but the possibility of being able to drive again was too seductive. I called and set the time. I got there an hour early. David and I sat in the parking lot eating precut watermelon from Jewel (same plaza.) I was nervous. Doctor Patel strutted to the lobby to grab me for my examination and I was immediately filled with confidence. Anyone with that much personal security must be great at their job. I was not disappointed. "I want this to work," I offered. She smiled quickly and told me "remember to blink." I'm drowning you in minutiae. Let me bring this to a 10/10 conclusion: my vision is now corrected to 20/20 (I can read a sign from three blocks away!) and the lenses correct my astigmatism and keep my eyes in line. Now: Viviana. When I asked her to take a selfie that she liked (for me to use in this review) she didn't immediately understand that it was to praise and appreciate her. She's extremely deserving of both. I came in two days after my miracle exam, not sure if I had successfully removed the acuvue daily lens from my right eye. She took a peek and confirmed that it was out, and placed an order for some more trial lenses so that I could make sure it was the right fit for me. I came in again today with both lenses still in and significant anxiety over that fact. Today, Viviana removed the lenses and gave me a comforting tutorial that I think might help (and then listened patiently and socially awkward me gave her an unsolicited lesson on trafficking of vulnerable groups in rural areas that flowed from my rant against Loyola facepalm. Patient and kind and so helpful! Thank you. More

I have had numerous eye surgeries over last 3 years. Thank God for Dr Tyler Kirk and his staff in Glen Ellyn, IL. I most recently had cataract surgery and 24 hours later I feel amazing. My sight has returned and I owe it all to Kirk Eye Center because they were committed to helping me get better.

Kirk Eye Center is excellent. We always receive thorough and informative care. They take the time to answer any questions we have and are kind and empathetic. Kirk Optical is fantastic as well. Great selection of glasses but best of all is the service. They always take the time to ensure a good fit for glasses. They are so patient, helpful, and caring. More

Kirk Eye Center and Dr. Scarpulla are the absolute best! On the advice of a friend’s recommendation, I sought help for my eyesight after unimpressive results from cataract surgery with an out-of-state ophthalmologist. Dr. Scarpulla restored my eyesight to 20/20 vision with a YAG procedure, painless and effective! I am so very grateful; colors are more vibrant and objects sharply delineated. Dr. Scarpulla is a gem—professional, kind, and knowledgeable. The nurses, receptionists, and surgical scheduler are all equally professional and compassionate. I am so very pleased with my results and recommend Kirk Eye Center—I give them TEN stars!!! More

Superior Optical Care - We have been with Kirk Eye Center since the 1980's, receiving care from Dr. Kent Kirk and his father before him. Dr 'Kent' has continue to provide care to our family. He is knowledgeable, compassionate, and conservative in provision of a patient's care. As our needs have changed we have been able to count on Dr. Kent Kirk to provide cutting edge care for our eyes.

I must take a.moment and highlight the ladies at the front desk- Kinga & Vicki. My last visit was an Odyssey getting there. Everything that could go wrong went wrong as I persevered to get to my appt on time. It culminated with me traversing 3 miles on foot to get there. Kindly, throughout my whole stressful adventure, these ladies maintained close phone communication with me. Rather than canceling me, they reworked my appt so that I could still be seen shortly after I arrived. I am so grateful for such grace. Most Dr offices would have callously canceled & rescheduled me for another day despite my traumatic quest. Thank you Kinga & Vicki. You are a blessing. Your front desk position is extremely important. You are the face of RFKEC and you represent them SUPERBLY!!! More

I recently had the privilege of undergoing cataract surgery performed by Dr. Tyler Kirk and his exceptional team. To say I am delighted with the results would be an understatement. From the moment I stepped into their care, the experience was nothing short of remarkable. Dr. Kirk's expertise and precision were evident throughout the procedure, making it entirely painless and comfortable. The transformation in my vision has been nothing short of miraculous. The results have far surpassed my wildest expectations. I can't even remember when my eyesight was last this remarkable. I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Tyler Kirk and his dedicated team of professionals. Their skill, compassion, and commitment to patient care are truly commendable. Thanks to them, I now enjoy a level of vision I had long thought was unattainable. If you're considering cataract surgery, I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Tyler Kirk and his team. They have not only improved my vision but also my quality of life, and for that, I am truly grateful. More

I bring my client here for her cataracts. She recently got surgery. Frances loves Maddie and thinks she does a great job when we come for her appointments. Maddie makes her feel comfortable and works with her to make sure everything is going smoothly. She has a speech impediment and Maddie makes sure she understood her correctly before proceeding. Would recommend Maddie/Kirk to other people! More

I had cataract surgery on both eyes this past month. The pre-surgery visits were efficient and informative detailing my options for new optical lenses and what I would need to do to prepare. The entire staff as well as the doctors were friendly and knowledgeable. The two surgeries went effortlessly with no pain. The post-surgery exams were also efficient informing me of the healing process. All in all everything went excellently and I am enjoying my new glasses-free vision.

They will then have you meet with the scheduler afterwards to discuss cost and scheduling (if you're ready). The day of the surgery was great! He was there for about an hour and a half, didn't feel any pain and was back to 20/20 that same day! Couldn't recommend Dr Kirk any higher! More

Seeing better! Who would believe the colors after cataract surgery would be so vibrant? First the left eye, then the right eye was the plan. Well, it was very easy to understand the importance of great eye care after I covered my left eye (with my hand) , looked at an object and for many years thought it was burgundy, but, in fact it was purple. Well, this is just my example of how surprised I was to see the brightness and clarity around me.

I cannot thank the Kirk Eye Center enough for the wonderful service that they provided for me. I am 78 years old and I had cataract Lasik surgery done in both eyes in March of 2023. From the start to the finish, all exams were done at the Glen Ellyn office and Lasik surgery was done in River Forest. I have to say that all the people working at the two locations, under Dr. Kent Kirk, are beyond words. They are like family and yet very professional. Dr. Kent walked me through the steps leading to the Lasik surgery, which is very rewarding and totally painless. I opted for the IOL lens replacements, which I highly recommend. Dr. Kent, you and your staff are the best. Thank you for everything. Sincerely, RICHARD ALBANESE More

If I could give this Eye Center 10 stars, I would. I have just completed my first laser cataract surgery in my left eye and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome! I look forward to my next procedure on my right eye in a week with no hesitation or apprehension. Not only is the staff in Gurnee, exceptional, kind and courteous and helpful, the doctors that you see there are professional, kind, efficient and very knowledgeable, and make sure that you are comfortable with any decision you make. I was hesitant to do this, even though I have had Lasik surgery in the past but I couldn’t have had a better outcome or results. The doctors and staff at the surgery center were as efficient, courteous and kind as they are in Gurnee in helping you relax and guide you through the procedure with ease and confidence. If anyone is looking for either cataract or Lasik surgery on any level, please do not pass this place up, you’ll never regret it. I know I didn’t and I sincerely thank everyone so much More

I am absolutely delighted with Kirk Eye Center! I was previously treated for dry eye issues at a major eye clinic in DuPage County but wasn’t seeing any improvement. I first saw Dr. Tyler Kirk at his Glen Ellyn office who took a thorough history and really listened to me! He referred me to Dr. Carter Kirk at the River Forest location where again, I was treated with empathy and understanding. He recommended treatments that are really working for me! My vision has improved drastically! I can’t recommend Kirk Eye Center enough. The doctors are knowledgeable and compassionate and the staff is fantastic (shout out to you, Cassandra)!

I couldn't be happier with the surgery (it was quick & painless) and the results (my vision is now 20/20 with colors being brighter & images being sharp & clear. It no longer looks like I'm looking through wax paper) I do not have to wear glasses for distance or reading anymore. I had my favorite frames turned into UV-polarized sunglasses! Kirk Eye Center is the best! The Surgical center in River Forest fulfilled all my needs. The staff was accommodating, pleasant, & right on task, explaining what was being done for every step along the way. I was comfortable & relaxed. The doctor, Carter Kirk was very professional, knowledgeable, explained each step, and made sure I was fine at every step of the surgery. You could tell her is an expert at his job. The Gurnee office, for pre-op & follow up appointments, also has a great staff that is welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly, & keeps things moving.

I came here for LASIK not long ago and I had an incredible experience! All of the staff were wonderful, the consultation process was thorough and tailored to my individual situation, and it was easy to get in contact with someone if I had questions. The process of getting LASIK at the surgery center was also great, all of the staff I interacted with were awesome and I felt like I was in good hands the whole time. I left with all of my questions answered, and I felt fully prepared to take care of myself post-procedure. I was really appreciative that Dr. Kirk called me later on in the evening to check in and make sure that the acute post-op period went smoothly, and I know who to call if I ever do need anything from them in the coming months. Overall, I would definitely recommend Kirk Eye Center and the surgery center, and I had a very positive experience! More

The actual procedure was quick, the nurses and medical assistants were awesome, Dr Kirk walked me through everything and I knew how to get ahold of him in case something went wrong. I really appreciate that he gives patients a call the night after LASIK to check on them. Overall, I would highly recommend Kirk Eye for anything, but especially LASIK! More

Great staff and Dr Scarpulls and Dr Kirk are very skilled and thorough. I did have a bit of a problem with a young technician that would not explain what test she was doing. She got me so stressed out I had to have Danielle take over and she was amazing. I miss Shirley. I give a 5 star as I have been going to their clinic many years and Dr Scarpulla treated me for Glaucoma and have helped through issues with my eyes. I was recommended for surgery of my left eye. I will eventually do it. God bless you all. More

I came here because of rapidly declining vision in my right eye. I was assigned to Dr. Kent Kirk (one of several of the family of Dr. Kirks in this practice) and was absolutely amazed at the quality of the care I received here! Dr. Kent spent nearly an hour (!) with me carefully examining my eyes, asking questions about my health history, diagnosing my condition (which fortunately was treatable), answered ALL my questions and fears, and made real sure I left with the eyedrops and Rx for supplements I needed to care for my condition. When is the last time a doctor spent an hour with you?! He has a kind, gentle chairside manner, reassuring me in no uncertain terms that my vision was 100% fine and just needed some TLC. I returned today for my follow-up and got the green light to resume using my contact lenses, and I couldn't be happier! His treatment worked beautifully! I strongly recommend this caring and highly professional family-owned practice to everybody. And they even took my insurance! How sweet is that! More

I had LASIK done at Kirk Eye Center and had a fantastic experience. They did a thorough exam before the surgery and were able to schedule a time that worked for me. On the day of LASIK I was really nervous but the staff was very positive and made me feel at ease. Dr. Kent Kirk did a fabulous job. He comes to chat with you before the surgery to give a run down and made me feel so much less nervous. They use the most up to date LASIK machines and the process was so simple. I was in and out in less than an hour and they took great care of me. I went home and slept as they recommended and woke up being able to see perfectly! I am so happy I decided to get LASIK and more importantly that I chose Kirk Eye Center. They’re the best of the best (I looked into many other places as well). More

Although I am fairly young, for some reason my eyes started to develop cataracts. Getting to a point when driving my car became a dangerous adventure, after a thorough search on internet I have opted for cataract surgery at Kirk Eye Center. I wasn’t disappointed, everything there was top notch! Starting from the receptionists to the nurses, I was always treated in a very professional and courteous manner. Many thanks to Ms Joyce Wolter, the surgery manager who helped me going through all the paperwork and dealed with my insurance! She made everything look easy to me! All my life since childhood I’ve had poor vision but now after my right eye surgery I have 20/20 vision! It feels like I am reborn, all these vibrant colors and multitude of details I have never been aware before! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dr Scott Kirk! You gave me the best gift! We all take for granted the vision and we realize that only after we lose it! Note: I have opted for premium IOL’s, I wanted for my eyes the best I can get. They are quite expensive and not covered by insurance, but I can personally state that they worth every penny! I cannot wait for the left eye surgery a week from today! More

I don’t think words can express the gratitude I feel towards Dr. Kirk and his incredible office and surgical staff for all that they did for me. I had ICL surgery done last month and it has been life changing.  Dr. Kirk was informative, helpful and answered every single question I had before and after surgery.  The timing of my recovery overlapped with some personal plans, and Dr. Kirk and his staff went out of their way to still schedule my first few appointments on days and/or times that they don’t normally schedule patients in order to ensure that everything looked and felt good after the procedure. I couldn’t believe how kind and thoughtful they all were. Not only am I still in awe of having perfect vision again, I will forever be grateful to Kirk Eye Center for everything they did for me. I highly recommend Dr. Kirk and the ICL surgery! More

As a new patient, I had my first opportunity to visit the Gurnee, IL office of ophthalmologist, Dr. Tyler Quentin Kirk. It took some weeks to get the appointment, but I waited patiently and was rewarded this morning with a sense of calm that let me know I was in the right place. From the welcoming voices on the phone and at the front door; during my exams and explanations; to our good-byes, I would like to thank Dr. Kirk and his wonderful staff.

Amazing experience! You only get one set of eyes in life, so based on research and reviews I traveled from Iowa to receive LASIK eye surgery from Kirk Eye Center... and it was absolutely worth it! Kirk Eye Center is equipped with top of the line laser technology and a care team that is exceptionally skilled. I was nervous about the procedure, but the care staff was kind and comforting. They walked me through every detail of the process before and during to ease any worry. They gave me the time I needed to ask questions and I never once felt rushed. I admire Dr. Kirk Kent’s confidence in his craft and genuine concern for his patients’ well being. My vision impairment was severe prior to lasik surgery, and now I can see perfectly without glasses or contacts! More

I love the legacy of the place I believe it was started by a grandfather and several relatives named Dr Kirk work there they appeared to have a very clean venue and their technology seem to be the latest I highly recommend this place to anyone that needs eye Care and you can get your prescription and buy glasses on site the same day More

Submitting this on behalf of Paul Koko. Paul had surgery on both eyes by Dr. Scott Kirk. One eye was nearsighted and the other was far sighted. First procedure included an Antistigmatic Lens to correct the stigmatism in left eye and two weeks later had "regular" cataract surgery to right eye. Both are doing great. Uses inexpensive "reader" classes for fine print but does not need for general tasks. Everyone in Surgical Center was courteous, helpful and there was no pain at all. Total procedure took only about 18 minutes. Went home after short rest. We have been patients at Kirk Eye Center for more than 40 years and highly recommend their kind and excellent treatment. More

I am very pleased with my experience at Kirk Eye Center in River Forest. I went there for treatment of cataracts in both eyes. There are several options available for the new lenses implanted during the cataract removal procedure. I opted for light adjustable lenses. I felt this was the best option for me to have the best possible vision post surgery. My experience with Kirk Eye Center has been very, very positive. The entire staff is very pleasant and professional. Each appointment was on time and each part of the exam was handled very smoothly. The most impressive part of my experience was on the day of my surgery. The surgery staff could not have been nicer. Staff members introduced themselves to me and clearly explained what they were doing. Each staff member was so competent that it I felt very confident that I was in good hands. (I have to admit I was a bit anxious when I arrived). The outcome of the surgery has been very good. I have not yet completed the adjustments to the new lenses but my vision is already so much better. I highly recommend this practice. More

My vision declined drastically last year.  At the end of the year, I couldn’t even drive when it became dark. At first, I visited a retinal specialist and went through various exams.  At the third visit, he told me that not much can be done to improve my vision.  He also sent me to the Chicago Lighthouse to get special eyeglasses for visually impaired.  Before I went to the Lighthouse appointment, I decided to get the second opinion from Dr. Carter Kirk.  That was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.  Dr. Carter quickly diagnosed me with cataracts.  He performed surgeries on both of my eyes shortly after.  My vision improved dramatically after the surgery.  They are still both at 20/20 with -3.50 eyeglasses four months after the surgery.  I can’t say enough to thank Dr. Carter and the Kirk Eye Center staffs for their professionalism and help!

I never write reviews, but I'm making an exception here. I had cataract surgery in February, 2018 by Dr. Scott Kirk. Both eyes, about a week apart. Everything went seamlessly. Recovery was a snap. I don't need glasses anymore, the glasses I wore since 4th grade. I was very resistant to having the surgery because, well, they're my eyes. However, when my prescription for my glasses could no longer improve my vision, I did my homework and decided to stay with the Kirk Eye Center. Very glad I did. I've been telling Dr. Scott that I'm a very satisfied customer and I am and that's why I'm writing this. More

Review from A.J.  |  Source: Google  |  Mar 19, 2021

I knew that I had to go to the eye doctor, as my eyesight seemed to be getting worse and worse, and that it was quite possibly because of cataracts. Not being able to see up close is in my estimation, somewhat of a relative issue, but driving at night was becoming more difficult. Halos on headlights or any type of street light was soon going to be a limitation. I came to Dr. Kent Kirk because my former eye doctor had retired after many years and my files had been transferred to the Kirk Eye Center. I found Dr. Kent Kirk to be very professional and knowledgeable about the procedures that he would be doing on my eyes. He took me through the procedure step-by-step. I actually decided to have the cataract surgery performed on my left eye, just two days before my birthday. Though I was a bit apprehensive, I found that everything that was done, was exactly what had been outlined. One thing that I had learned prior to the surgery was that cataract surgery was first performed in about 1750 and I really figured that this surgery would go with no issue. Little did I know that the surgery would go way better than I could have imagined. I found that on the way home, I already could see more clearly, whether it was license plates on vehicle around me, street signs, or even brighter interior lights. My left eye was markedly improved. I came back the next day for the post-surgery follow-up and Dr. Kirk was quite pleased with his work, as was I. He did ask when I wanted to do the right eye and I immediately told him - asap! I was able to have the appointment for the right eye surgery, 13 days later. This time the cataract surgery went easily, as well as the first. The big difference was there was very little apprehension on my part. Again, I was amazed at how well my vision had improved on the way home. In fact, I don’t really know if I had ever seen as well as I do now. I had glasses from when I was first in grammar school, but I went away from glasses and in to contacts in about December of 1974. I was working as a rookie policeman and was assigned to a “bank robbery in progress” call. When I entered the bank, my glasses fogged up. Within days, I made the appointment for contacts. From December 1974, I never wore glasses again. Now with the cataract surgery done on both eyes, I find that I do not need glasses for distance, and, amazingly, I will only need reading glasses that are at the lower end of the prescription range and that depends on just how small the letters are. All things considered, this may have been one of the best choices that I have ever made. At my age, I can probably say that my knee replacement was good, but, you know, there is nothing like being able to see clearly. Dr. Kent Kirk and his staff, both at the normal visits and the two surgery visits were fantastic. They exhibited a great deal of professionalism and, I must say that I was quite impressed with just how routine they could make this surgery. If you are unsure, I say - go for it! And Dr. Kent Kirk is the right person for getting the job done right. More

My opinion on lasik surgery at Dr. Kirks Office: 1. Customer service 2. pain 3. recovery & vision... 1. I had lasik surgery at this office and appreciated the medical staff very much. Once you pass the customer service desk the nurse aids and all staff in back are very welcoming and sweet. Made me feel very comfortable compared to a major lasik company I visited months prior and opted out of doing service with.  I will say that the front desk team could come across a bit rushed and too busy to really focus on me and truly make me feel "special".... after all I'm forking over a lot of money for lasik right? If you ask me, this is an expensive investment I'm making on my sight so I would expect nothing less then top notch service from the greeters. But they didn't perform the surgery so let's move on. Dr. KIRK was pleasant and well experienced. My first visit with him was short but efficient. I only wish I would have shared more about my eyes so that I could feel like he knew more about my health before surgery. I'm sure he had all he needed with his experience through the exams and all... but I guess just to make me feel more at ease with this ...maybe just a few more questions about my eye history. 2. The pain was excruciating.  No one could have EVER prepared me for the pain I felt. Was it the numbing drops? Did they not wait long enough for it to take effect? Was I just not tolerant enough? Were my eyes just too sensisitive from sleeping with contacts over the years? (Something I never shared) am I not good with anesthesia? I had so many questions as to why I felt SO MUCH pain during the surgery process. On my first eye, I felt the cornea lifted up and it burned, but I didn't on the second eye. The pressure on my eyes was unbearable. I was referred here and it was due to several great experiences so I truly don't question the Drs ability and have no negative feedback after my recovery because my results speak for themself ...I CAN SEE!!:)  but just the mere fact that I was expecting "a painless" surgery, and maybe just uncomfortable at most is why I give this a 4 star rating. I will say that most people if not all say its painless so now I just question Everyone's honesty on this! The nurses were fantastic during my breakdown..they were holding my hands and really trying to calm me down. Thank you! I truly felt like you cared and I needed it. I just wanted transparency.. I can prep for the pain... Not for uncertainty. But then again maybe I was just different! 3. Recovery.... I could see on DAY 1 after surgery... very sensitive eyes of course. But I was pleasantly surprised that my vision was great so quickly! Normally -5/-4 ....now 20/20....with a little cloud here and there as I continue to heal... I've been told weeks even months will give final results. But I couldn't be happier with my results already!!! Thank you Dr. KIRK and staff!!! More

Love Kirk Eye Center! They were recommended to me by my mom and my sister in law when I had a bad cut in my cornea. Dr. Kirk took great care of me and I healed up quickly with much less pain than I would have without him. It was my first time in the office, but he made me feel like I had been a long time patient. Staff is great and I feel extremely comfortable with everyone at the office. Highly recommend!!! More

Over the last few years my vision has gradually worsened. I could not read a street sign from 20 feet away i went to Kirk eye center to see if anything could be done to improve my vision. I was immediately impressed with the professionalism of the staff. After a very thorough it was determined that i should have cataract surgery on both eyes. Dr.Carter Kirk performed surgery on both of my eyes. My vision has improved dramatically . Now i have the ability to see clearly day and night. As a result i do not need glasses at all . Dr. Carter and his excellent gave me my clear vision back, that had been declining for years. I heartily recommend Kirk Eye Center. More

I knew that I had to go to the eye doctor, as my eyesight seemed to be getting worse and worse, and that it was quite possibly because of cataracts. Not being able to see up close is in my estimation, somewhat of a relative issue, but driving at night was becoming more difficult. Halos on headlights or any type of street light was soon going to be a limitation. I came to Dr. Kent Kirk because my former eye doctor had retired after many years and my files had been transferred to the Kirk Eye Center. I found Dr. Kent Kirk to be very professional and knowledgeable about the procedures that he would be doing on my eyes. He took me through the procedure step-by-step. I actually decided to have the cataract surgery performed on my left eye, just two days before my birthday. Though I was a bit apprehensive, I found that everything that was done, was exactly what had been outlined. One thing that I had learned prior to the surgery was that cataract surgery was first performed in about 1750 and I really figured that this surgery would go with no issue. Little did I know that the surgery would go way better than I could have imagined. I found that on the way home, I already could see more clearly, whether it was license plates on vehicle around me, street signs, or even brighter interior lights. My left eye was markedly improved. I came back the next day for the post-surgery follow-up and Dr. Kirk was quite pleased with his work, as was I. He did ask when I wanted to do the right eye and I immediately told him - asap! I was able to have the appointment for the right eye surgery, 13 days later. This time the cataract surgery went easily, as well as the first. The big difference was there was very little apprehension on my part. Again, I was amazed at how well my vision had improved on the way home. In fact, I don’t really know if I had ever seen as well as I do now. I had glasses from when I was first in grammar school, but I went away from glasses and in to contacts in about December of 1974. I was working as a rookie policeman and was assigned to a “bank robbery in progress” call. When I entered the bank, my glasses fogged up. Within days, I made the appointment for contacts. From December 1974, I never wore glasses again. Now with the cataract surgery done on both eyes, I find that I do not need glasses for distance, and, amazingly, I will only need reading glasses that are at the lower end of the prescription range and that depends on just how small the letters are. All things considered, this may have been one of the best choices that I have ever made.

Dr Scott Kirk has done both my cataract surgeries. I had been told by a doctor at a different practice that I was not a candidate for multifocal lenses and due to this I would need to wear glasses. Dr Kirk assured me this wasn’t true and after having both cataracts removed and multifocal lenses implanted I have 20/25 vision. No glasses. I couldn’t be happier. More

I have been wearing glasses and needing eye care all of my life. Several months ago my cataract was at the point that it needed to be treated. I learned of Kirk Eye Center from a friend who said that he had an excellent experience there. So I went and had cataract surgery. What a wonderful experience! Everyone at Kirk Eye Center is caring, patient, and professional from the front desk to the operating room. And there is a level of sincerity that you rarely find elsewhere. Every so often you meet someone who, after just a short time of conversation, you have complete confidence in. For me that was Dr. Scott Kirk. I am 73 and have been to many eye doctors. This was by far my best eye care experience ever. More

I am typically not the type of person who posts a review, but I have been a patient at Kirk Eye Center for the past 25 years and I cannot emphasize enough how amazing this practice is at helping people achieve wonderful vision! The doctors at Kirk Eye Center have guided me towards perfect eyesight from the time I wore glasses, followed by contact lenses for many years, and most recently the Lasik vision corrective surgery. Each doctor is extremely knowledgeable, polite, and caring. The staff at Kirk Eye Center is warm and friendly, and my entire experience has been nothing but positive. I have already insisted to my younger brother that he schedule a Lasik consultation as soon as possible so that he can receive the same magnificent care and results that were provided to me! I would recommend Kirk Eye Center to any person in search of top-notch vision correction as well as fantastic overall service. More

I was referred to Kirk Eye Center by my ophthalmologist. After my initial consultation, it was determined that I needed eye surgery and I was immediately apprehensive...okay I was really, really scared and didn’t know what to expect! The moment I decided to proceed with the surgery, everyone at the River Forest office was simply spectacular! From the wonderful ladies at the front desk, to Joyce the Refractive Manager, the wonderful caring staff preparing me for pre-surgery and finally Dr. Scott Kirk, my positive experience far exceeded my fears! I can’t say or write enough about what a wonderful job the staff did to put me at ease from beginning to end! That was 3 weeks ago and now I’m scheduling my second surgery this week and I am looking forward to having the vision I had when I was in my 20’s! Thank you River Forest staff at the Kirk Eye Center and I will definitely tell everyone I know to look into Kirk Eye Center for the very best experience in eye care! Bernard Murray More

The Kirk family has taken care of me for my entire life, starting with the father of Scott and Kent, and continuing with their sons. They are excellent doctors and people. Hands down, I recommend them to all, regardless of age, health, and eye condition. More

I have undergone three procedures at the Kirk Eye Center over the last 15 years. You will never find a more professional operation than at Kirk Eye. Dr. Kent, Dr. Scott and now Dr. Carter Kirk are not only professional but also compassionate. They go above and beyond for the needs of the patient. All three of my procedures were handled professionally and expertly. All three procedures ended up with the intended results. I cannot recommend them more strongly. More

My father first met Dr. Kent Kirt I would say 17yrs to 18yrs ago. Dr.Kent did lyser eye surgery, and had a beautiful experience. A few weeks ago Dr.Kent Kirt had the privilege of doing catucus surgery on my father's left eye. My Dad had a excellent recovery and a beautiful surgery. Thanks to Dr. Kirt Kent and his whole staff. I have nothing, but nice things to say about him and his staff. They were all so wonderful and so attentive. It's so nice to come to a place where they make you feel comfortable, especially in a situation like this. Dr. Kent did a remarkable job, I would trust noone else with my father's eyes then him. My father doesn't speak English that well but then again...Dr.Kent and his staff made sure my father felt comfortable and at peace throughout the whole process. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you!!! Dr.Kent for all of your hard work, I see the love you have for what you do. Thank you. More

I had cataract surgery by Dr. Scott Kirk in November. The procedure was quick and painless as promised. Everything was explained to me in detail prior to and after the surgery in a plain-spoken compassionate manner. The staff the day of the surgery was extremely pleasant and calming. The healing process was very quick and I now have 20/20 vision! The follow up appointments were thorough and professional. If you need cataract surgery I cannot reccomend the Kirk Eye Centers enough!

Dr. Carter Kirk is a lifesaver!!!  After seeing six doctors in other practices and being misdiagnosed for over 2 weeks with a viral infection I was sent to Kirk Eye Center to see him. He was the only one who diagnosed me correctly with a very rare bacterial infection. He immediately changed my course of action. He took the time to explain what was going on and what needed to be done. He is gracious, patient, super intelligent and you can tell he does his research. He also recommended that I go and get a confocal scan at Rush  hospital. He was able to immediately get me in there and it confirmed his findings. Dr. Carter Kirk was absolutely AMAZING and I don't know what I would have done without him!!!  Had it not been for his expert experience and catching this, my outcome could have been very grim. If I could give him 10 stars I would!!!!  Not only is he an outstanding doctor but their facilities are beautiful as well. I felt like I was in great hands the whole time! I highly, highly recommend him!!!!! More

I was referred to Kirk Eye Center by my ophthalmologist. After my initial consultation, it was determined that I needed eye surgery and I was immediately apprehensive...okay I was really, really scared and didn’t know what to expect! The moment I decided to proceed with the surgery, everyone at the River Forest office was simply spectacular! From the wonderful ladies at the front desk, to Joyce the Refractive Manager, the wonderful caring staff preparing me for pre-surgery and finally Dr. Scott Kirk, my positive experience far exceeded my fears! I can’t say or write enough about what a wonderful job the staff did to put me at ease from beginning to end! That was 3 weeks ago and now I’m scheduling my second surgery this week and I am looking forward to having the vision I had when I was in my 20’s!

I had an ICL procedure done in October. And oh my gosh! Kirk Eye Center gave me my vision back! I went in for a LASIK consultation and it turned out my eyes weren't a good candidate, but they recommended an ICL instead and now I'll have perfect vision (until cataracts--but that's decades away!). After 22 years in prescription glasses, the only kind I'll need is regular old sunglasses-- a luxury I haven't had since I was 6. From start to finish, the associates at Kirk Eye Center have been polite, professional, and just absolutely FANTASTIC! Words cannot express my gratitude for giving me back my vision! More

I am glad to have chosen Kirk Eye Center to get my Lasik surgery done. From start to finish the experience could not have gone better. I went in for my free consultation where my eyes were thoroughly examined and I was told I was a candidate. Dr. Kent Kirk thoroughly explained the procedure to me and what I could expect afterward as well as the timeline of how my vision would progress. He took the time to answer all of my questions, and I did not feel rushed at all, which I have experienced quite a bit with other doctors and what I gleaned from other people's reviews of some of the "cattle call" Lasik centers in the area. The day of the procedure, I was at the surgery center for less than an hour and a half. I didn't have to wait at all, and the process was streamlined but again, I did not feel rushed. The staff was so nice and seemed genuinely concerned that everything went well. Dr. Kirk explained the process and it went exactly as he said it would go. It was about 30 seconds of total time under the lasers for each eye and the process was nowhere near as uncomfortable as I had imagined. Dr. Kirk gives you his cell phone number to call if you need anything or have any issues. I went home and took a nap, and Dr. Kirk called me that night to make sure everything was okay which is a nice touch. By the next day my vision was restored to a level it hasn't been since I was 20 years old! It has been 4 days and so far so good. Just like you always hear, my only regret is that I didn't do this sooner! Great experience, great staff, great doctor, I highly recommend Kirk Eye Center. More

I am so excited with the result of my Lasik operation at Kirk Eye Center. Since I am so pleased with how the operation went and the result. Here is the overall experience of my procedure. 1. Free consultation / follow up questions I had a Mini-Monovision or Laser Blended Vision as you will find on the internet. Yes, I was scared of having each eye with different visions. Dr. Kent Kirk along with Ms. Joyce Walter covered all questions and concerns I had prior to the operation. 2. Pre-op preparation Usual blood pressure check, eye drops, choice to take sedative pill…I wouldn’t go without it. Nurses were professional and courteous, Dr. Kent also took time to answer additional questions. 3. Creating cornea flap operation Kirk utilize laser cutting method, this is safer than manual cutting method, which I liked. Only thing is that it is a bit awkward, since you will feel heavy pressure and lose sight on that eye temporary. All I did was just focus on center light and being steady as much as possible as Dr. Kent encouraged me to do so by saying “Doing great, perfect and etc etc” for less than 30 seconds each eyes. 4. Lasik operation Allegretto WAVE Eye-Q Excimer Laser System. This machine automatically trace your natural eye movements to eliminate miss firing of laser and it stops, if you move your eye out of the machine’s tolerance. All I did was to keep my eye steadily on green flickering light as Dr. Kent also encouraged me to do. During the procedure, green light do move around and the light become fuzzy. What I did is to chase the green light as much as possible and also try to focus on the center of the fuzzy green light. No worries, I did have a few moments I could not locate the green light, if then, I just focused my eye on where the green light was until see it again. 5. Recovery, day of the operation You will feel sedated from sedative and you will not be able to open your eyes well enough to see. So, when I got home, I immediately wore protective goggles and went to sleep for 3~4 hours, this is easy since you feel sedated. Your eyes will be extra sensitive, so make sure room is pitch black. Don’t worry about eye drops, just sleep it away. I woke up with decent eye sight, enough to function around the house, I still kept wearing sunglasses around the house in dark setting with no TV nor electric devices to soften my eyes hoping for faster healing. 6. Follow up appointment and 1st day I found my eyes already recovered enough to drive. Feeling is very similar to after swam in a pool full of chlorine... Dr. Kent confirmed my combined vision is 20/20, then Dr. tap on my elbow and said “you god 20/20 vision!”…My eyes were still fuzz, so I was still a bit skeptic... I drove to work after the appointment and followed recommended eye drop routines, I even used more tear eye drop (every 30 min) as I found that eyes need moisture to heal. My eyes did not show improvements throughout the day, but they were good enough for me to drive home at night in rain. No depth perception nor weird feeling issue due to Mini-monovision… 8. 2nd day after the surgery I woke up with almost 90% of the fuzziness gone…I found myself totally amazed/shocked by the clarity of my vision… There is a tree in front of our balcony which is about 30 feet away 3 story height. I can even see crease and dark spot on a leaf almost to the top of the tree 30 feet away. If this is the result from Mini-Monovision / Laser Blended Vision (one for nearsighted, another for farsighted correction). I am now a true believer and I am sure my eyes were never this good in my life…what an amazing result this is…I drove to work still wearing sunglasses and tear eye drop every 30 min as thinking of the last 10% clarity… I am still a bit light sensitiveness, but I am so sure it will subside as it progress, I cannot even wait for next few days of improvements to come… More

I cannot express in words how they changes my life for the better but I will do my best. I went there after having issues with my eyes no longer tolerating me wearing contacts. This was a major issues because my vision was so bad that with glasses I was around 40/20 in one eye and 50/20 in the other. This made it hard to drive at night and even dealing with everyday tasks. Contact improved that to about 30/20 and 40/20. I have always been very near sighted so much that most doctors had only seen a couple patients worse then me. I decided contact implants was the only option I had. Since I maxed out the power of the contact implants I also would need lasik too! It was a long process with many surgeries. I found through the process the Dr Kent Kirk would not settle for good he was determined to make sure everything was done to be the best for me. After it was all done I am seeing at 25/20 better then I have ever have before. No glasses, no contacts, no fear of not seeing ever again! The nursing staff treated me like family and I still visit them when doing follow ups. I would not trust my eyes, my families and friends eyes to anyone else. It was not a easy or cheap road but I am so thankful I did it! Priceless and life changing. I was the blind man they made see. They truly treat you like family and care so much! More

I recently had LASIK Surgery at Kirk Eye Center in River Forest. I was incredibly happy with the experience during the entire process. From the initial exams to the actual surgery to the follow up appointment, the entire staff was very professional, helpful and caring. The LASIK surgery itself was very quick. I felt very well prepped Dr. Kirk and the staff. The first couple hours post surgery were uncomfortable, which was expected, but after that it was pain free. A few hours after surgery I received a personal call from Dr. Kirk following up to see how I was doing....which meant a lot. The next day my vision was great and has been since I had the surgery. I would highly recommend Kirk Eye Center if you are thinking about LASIK Surgery. More

Went in for lasik this week and I am so glad I chose Dr. Kirk for my procedure! The staff was beyond accommodating and did everything in their power to make me comfortable on the day of. Dr Kirk explained everything to me and the procedure was surprisingly pain free and fast! I am now at 20/20 vision and couldnt be happier with my decision! I came here on a recommendation from a friend of mine and this place has great reviews for a reason. More

I am so excited with the result of my Lasik operation at Kirk Eye Center. Since I am so pleased with how the operation went and the result. Here is the overall experience of my procedure. 1. Free consultation / follow up questions I had a Mini-Monovision or Laser Blended Vision as you will find on the internet. Yes, I was scared of having each eye with different visions. Dr. Kent Kirk along with Ms. Joyce Walter covered all questions and concerns I had prior to the operation. 2. Pre-op preparation Usual blood pressure check, eye drops, choice to take sedative pill…I wouldn’t go without it. Nurses were professional and courteous, Dr. Kent also took time to answer additional questions. 3. Creating cornea flap operation Kirk utilize laser cutting method, this is safer than manual cutting method, which I liked. Only thing is that it is a bit awkward, since you will feel heavy pressure and lose sight on that eye temporary. All I did was just focus on center light and being steady as much as possible as Dr. Kent encouraged me to do so by saying “Doing great, perfect and etc etc” for less than 30 seconds each eyes. 4. Lasik operation Allegretto WAVE Eye-Q Excimer Laser System. This machine automatically trace your natural eye movements to eliminate miss firing of laser and it stops, if you move your eye out of the machine’s tolerance. All I did was to keep my eye steadily on green flickering light as Dr. Kent also encouraged me to do. During the procedure, green light do move around and the light become fuzzy. What I did is to chase the green light as much as possible and also try to focus on the center of the fuzzy green light. No worries, I did have a few moments I could not locate the green light, if then, I just focused my eye on where the green light was until see it again. 5. Recovery, day of the operation You will feel sedated from sedative and you will not be able to open your eyes well enough to see. So, when I got home, I immediately wore protective goggles and went to sleep for 3~4 hours, this is easy since you feel sedated. Your eyes will be extra sensitive, so make sure room is pitch black. Don’t worry about eye drops, just sleep it away. I woke up with decent eye sight, enough to function around the house, I still kept wearing sunglasses around the house in dark setting with no TV nor electric devices to soften my eyes hoping for faster healing. 6. Follow up appointment and 1st day I found my eyes already recovered enough to drive. Feeling is very similar to after swam in a pool full of chlorine... Dr. Kent confirmed my combined vision is 20/20, then Dr. tap on my elbow and said “you god 20/20 vision!”…My eyes were still fuzz, so I was still a bit skeptic... I drove to work after the appointment and followed recommended eye drop routines, I even used more tear eye drop (every 30 min) as I found that eyes need moisture to heal. My eyes did not show improvements throughout the day, but they were good enough for me to drive home at night in rain. No depth perception nor weird feeling issue due to Mini-monovision… 8. 2nd day after the surgery I woke up with almost 90% of the fuzziness gone…I found myself totally amazed/shocked by the clarity of my vision… There is a tree in front of our balcony which is about 30 feet away 3 story height. I can even see crease and dark spot on a leaf almost to the top of the tree 30 feet away. If this is the result from Mini-Monovision / Laser Blended Vision (one for nearsighted, another for farsighted correction). I am now a true believer and I am sure my eyes were never this good in my life…what an amazing result this is…I drove to work still wearing sunglasses and tear eye drop every 30 min as thinking of the last 10% clarity… I am still a bit light sensitiveness, but I am so sure it will subside as it progress, I cannot even wait for next few days of improvements to come… More

I had a very pleasant experience at the Kirk Eye Center. I had LASIK to correct very poor vision in both eyes and an astigmatism. Dr. Kirk was professional and did not push me into the surgery before he thought I was ready and a viable candidate. As a diabetic, there were further concerns/considerations with the procedure that Dr. Kirk was very aware of. I saw him over the course of a year before he decided it was the right time to do the surgery. Over that year, the office staff regularly checked in with me. My recovery from the surgery was easy and painless. Definitely recommend visiting the Kirk Eye Center if you are considering LASIK! More

I am glad to have chosen Kirk Eye Center to get my Lasik surgery done. From start to finish the experience could not have gone better. I went in for my free consultation where my eyes were thoroughly examined and I was told I was a candidate. Dr. Kent Kirk thoroughly explained the procedure to me and what I could expect afterward as well as the timeline of how my vision would progress. He took the time to answer all of my questions, and I did not feel rushed at all, which I have experienced quite a bit with other doctors and what I gleaned from other people's reviews of some of the "cattle call" Lasik centers in the area. The day of the procedure, I was at the surgery center for less than an hour and a half. I didn't have to wait at all, and the process was streamlined but again, I did not feel rushed. The staff was so nice and seemed genuinely concerned that everything went well. Dr. Kirk explained the process and it went exactly as he said it would go. It was about 30 seconds of total time under the lasers for each eye and the process was nowhere near as uncomfortable as I had imagined. Dr. Kirk gives you his cell phone number to call if you need anything or have any issues. I went home and took a nap, and Dr. Kirk called me that night to make sure everything was okay which is a nice touch. By the next day my vision was restored to a level it hasn't been since I was 20 years old! It has been 4 days and so far so good. Just like you always hear, my only regret is that I didn't do this sooner! Great experience, great staff, great doctor, I highly recommend Kirk Eye Center. More

Hello, I am going to share my whole experience from start to finish on my LASIK journey with Kirk Eye Center. (To get the overall review if you don’t care to read the whole story, skip to last paragraph) I found them online and read some reviews and saw they had FREE LASIK consultations, so I decided to enter in my information and see where that takes me. A few days later I received an email about a setting up an appointment for the consultation. I got quick email replies which was nice and set up my appointment. A week later it was time for my appointment, I get in and got checked in quickly! They brought me in the back and began by asking questions on my health background. Then they proceeded to check my eye sight. After that they put in some numbing drops and used a pen to check my eye pressure. The numbing drops worked amazing but it did feel very weird, normal though. After that I was seated back in the waiting room for about 10 minutes. I was then ask to come into another room where they did a scan of my eyes, this was very cool and interesting to me. After that I was put into a room to wait to see the Dr. I only waited about 5 minutes until he came in. He checked my eyes and went over all of my information to discuss if I was a good candidate for LASIK or not which I was. I did have a dry spot on my eye which he figured was just temporary and gave me a few eyedrops and if I did go ahead with the procedure he wanted to have me come back in to check to see if it had cleared up. After that I was placed back into the waiting room until I think her name was Joyce came and brought me back to talk about the numbers part. She was very helpful and answered all of my questions and didn’t pressure me into anything and I went on my way for the day with my information. I decided to go ahead and do the procedure so I emailed them and filled out my paperwork and got a date. My date was only a week away which was crazy fast and I had a lot of mixed feeling at this point since I was honestly nervous. I got back in to get my eye checked before hand and everything went well with that. Surgery day I got there, they took me back and took vitals and explained what was going to happen and gave me something to help relax me since I was basically having a panic attack at this point. The procedure was extremely fast. I would say I was only a total of maybe 2 min of being worked on, minus the prep time and such, but that wasn’t a big deal. After I was done my eyes were very sensitive and tired so someone read me my after care instructions. I then was ready to go. I was only there for about 1 hour to an hour and 15. I got home and I attempted to nap like I was recommended. I laid down but my eyes started to spasm intensely and I tossed and turned for about 45 minutes in extreme pain just trying to get the spasming to stop. I could barely open my eyes at this point and got ahold of the Dr. he instructed me on what to do and within about 15 min they stopped spasming and I was able to rest a few hours with my eyes closed. Later that night I was watching TV and had basically perfect vision minus the slight blurriness. My next day checkup went as smoothly and my consultation. At this point I had 20/20 vision and my eyes felt great, no pain or anything. It is a week later as I am writing this and I have done all my eyedrops and aftercare as I was instructed and I haven’t had any problems. If you stuck it out through this experience, I would definitely say if you are considering getting LASIK, do it with Kirk Eye Center. They have gone above and beyond my expectations! I even went back and purchased a nice pair of sunglasses with their great optical team to protect my new eyes. More

From the initial exam, then the surgery, and the follow ups afterward, everything is done perfect here! Their staff is so professional and courteous and they really care! I am truly blown away on how awesome the Kirk Eye Center is, keep up the great work, you have a patient and customer for life! More

I just had cataract surgery. I highly recommend Kirk Eye Center! I cant praise Kirk Eye Center in Gurnee and NovaMed Center in River Forest enough!. Both are professional and do an amazing job at keeping you informed and relaxed regarding the procedure. They have the process down to a choreographed science.Every dept. and every person is professional, can answer any question, they take their time with you, but they don't waste it either. Dr. Scott Kirk is wonderful as well as Michelle in the Gurnee office. If you have been told you need cataract surgery took up Dr. Scott Kirk in Gurnee and River Forest- you wont be sorry. The day after my surgery my vision was 20-25 in my left eye- everything was bright and clear. Remarkable since the day before surgery, my left eye, I could barely see,everything was cloudy, like being in a fog. Yes....5 stars to Kirk Eye Center and Dr. Scott Kirk and team!!!! More

I had the pleasure of interacting with Dr. Scott Kirk, Dr. Kent Kirk, and Dr. Carter Kirk while having cataract surgery and lens replacement. The result is down right exciting. After wearing glasses for decades, the “Kirks” sent me away with no glasses and excellent eyesight: near and far. The entire experience was professional, friendly, and well informed at each stage. The staff operated with calm competent reassurance. Trusting one’s eyesight to anyone is a big deal. The Kirks have my appreciation and trust. More

I have been a patient at Kirk Eye Center for 25 years. Each time I visit, I receive the same courteous treatment and respect that makes me want to return and also to recommend the Drs Kirk to friends of mine.   I have had cataract surgery there, get routine tests such as visual fields and get my pressure checked.  From surgery to emergency appointments I have never doubted that I was I the best of hands for every situation. The staff is patient and kind and the doctors make sure to inquire about how you are feeling and ask about things you have been up to.  I can't say enough. A wonderful, welcoming and top notch practice. More

Hello, I am going to share my whole experience from start to finish on my LASIK journey with Kirk Eye Center. (To get the overall review if you don’t care to read the whole story, skip to last paragraph) I found them online and read some reviews and saw they had FREE LASIK consultations, so I decided to enter in my information and see where that takes me. A few days later I received an email about a setting up an appointment for the consultation. I got quick email replies which was nice and set up my appointment. A week later it was time for my appointment, I get in and got checked in quickly! They brought me in the back and began by asking questions on my health background. Then they proceeded to check my eye sight. After that they put in some numbing drops and used a pen to check my eye pressure. The numbing drops worked amazing but it did feel very weird, normal though. After that I was seated back in the waiting room for about 10 minutes. I was then ask to come into another room where they did a scan of my eyes, this was very cool and interesting to me. After that I was put into a room to wait to see the Dr. I only waited about 5 minutes until he came in. He checked my eyes and went over all of my information to discuss if I was a good candidate for LASIK or not which I was. I did have a dry spot on my eye which he figured was just temporary and gave me a few eyedrops and if I did go ahead with the procedure he wanted to have me come back in to check to see if it had cleared up. After that I was placed back into the waiting room until I think her name was Joyce came and brought me back to talk about the numbers part. She was very helpful and answered all of my questions and didn’t pressure me into anything and I went on my way for the day with my information. I decided to go ahead and do the procedure so I emailed them and filled out my paperwork and got a date. My date was only a week away which was crazy fast and I had a lot of mixed feeling at this point since I was honestly nervous. I got back in to get my eye checked before hand and everything went well with that. Surgery day I got there, they took me back and took vitals and explained what was going to happen and gave me something to help relax me since I was basically having a panic attack at this point. The procedure was extremely fast. I would say I was only a total of maybe 2 min of being worked on, minus the prep time and such, but that wasn’t a big deal. After I was done my eyes were very sensitive and tired so someone read me my after care instructions. I then was ready to go. I was only there for about 1 hour to an hour and 15. I got home and I attempted to nap like I was recommended. I laid down but my eyes started to spasm intensely and I tossed and turned for about 45 minutes in extreme pain just trying to get the spasming to stop. I could barely open my eyes at this point and got ahold of the Dr. he instructed me on what to do and within about 15 min they stopped spasming and I was able to rest a few hours with my eyes closed. Later that night I was watching TV and had basically perfect vision minus the slight blurriness. My next day checkup went as smoothly and my consultation. At this point I had 20/20 vision and my eyes felt great, no pain or anything. It is a week later as I am writing this and I have done all my eyedrops and aftercare as I was instructed and I haven’t had any problems. If you stuck it out through this experience, I would definitely say if you are considering getting LASIK, do it with Kirk Eye Center. They have gone above and beyond my expectations! I even went back and purchased a nice pair of sunglasses with their great optical team to protect my new eyes. More

I had LASIK at Kirk Eye Center last week and couldn't have had a better experience. Dr. Kent Kirk was awesome and I felt like he really cared about my eye health. I had previously gone for a consultation at LasikPlus and felt a little uneasy there. It felt like they were trying to get me scheduled for the procedure as fast as possible and spent more time talking about payment than looking at my eyes. I made the appointment at Kirk just to see if it was any different. Dr. Kirk had some concerns about a few things, scheduled me for some extra tests, and I felt so much more taken care of there. It felt like he actually cared about my long term wellness vs just wanting to schedule me for an expensive procedure and get me out the door. Everyone at Kirk was professional, accommodating, and friendly. The LASIK itself was so incredibly fast and painless that I could hardly believe it. Dr. Kirk and the nurses there all prepared me really well for the whole procedure and what would happen after. I'm normally very nervous for medical procedures, but I found the LASIK to be no big deal. It was certainly uncomfortable in the few hours following, but I knew it was normal and got through it with no problems. The next day, I was seeing 20/20 and I have had zero issues in the week since. I keep thinking that I'll try to take my contacts out before I go to sleep because my vision is so good. I would highly recommend going to Kirk to anyone who has been thinking about LASIK. It will change your life! More

Had a great experience at Kirk Eye Center,the staff made me feel very comfortable,I had the Laser it was nothing to go through.Then Dr.Carter Kirk put in my new lens didn't feel a thing,after that I could not believe my sight crystal clear perfect. Dr.Carter Kirk has great bed side manners,very intelligent and professional,there wasn't a thing he couldn't answer of my questions. I will recommend Kirk to everyone I meet that needs a eye proceedure. My mother 10 years ago had both eyes done she said you have to go to Kirk I figured they do so many they have to be good I figured right. The Kirk's bring a whole new world to you with perfect sight,it gives to a very positive attitude when going from trying to see to perfect. Thank you Kirk Eye Center. David Salverson. More

When I originally came to Kirk Eye Center I had no vision in my right eye. I had visited a a center in the Southeast surburb of Chicago and was told that I had vitreous hemorrhaging on the back of my retina. I was instructed to sleep at a forty five degree angle and it would dissipate. After coming back for three weeks with no success, I was sent to a Retinal Surgeon.The retinal surgeon also told me to sleep at a forty five degree angle and it would dissipate in a few days. After I returned in a week the surgeon told me that he would have to do surgery on my retina.He explained to me that he was on the staff at the University of Chicago and that I should get on his list to have the surgery as soon as possible. At this time I told him that I wanted to get a second opinion.He seemed unhappy that I would do that. I was told by a friend that I should go to Kirk Eye Center in River Forest. When I made an appointment at KEC, I spoke with the nurses there and went in to see DR. Scott Kirk. After being examined by Dr Scott who stated that he did not see what the first Opthamologist and Surgeon were talking about.He then brought in Dr. Kent Kirk and the head surgical assistant.They together determined that it was a stage four cataract. Dr Scott then summoned the resident Retinal Surgeon.After the Retinal Surgeon , Dr. Blake Horio looked, he turned the light off, dropped his head and sadly said that " some one was trying to make some money and if they are doing this to you they are doing it to others".Dr Horio then stated that I should come to his office in Hinsdale and he wanted to do a B- Scan.He also stated that it looked like a stage four cataract. I was given an appointment to see Dr.Horio three hours later. Upon arriving at his office and having a B Scan he showed me a rectangular card with two large black circles in the center that were surrounded by what looked like the milky way.He said that if there had been any hemorraging those star like objects would be in the black circles. He then told me to go back to KEC and have Dr. Scott and Lovie (surgical assistant) remove the cataract and I WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE. After making an appointment I went in a week later. On the day of the surger I was greeted by the friendly staff that assured me that everything would be okay. After what seemed to be about fifteen minutes Dr. Scott Kirk asked me how many fingers did I see. I was able to respond correctly right away. After my first post operation visit my vision was 20/25.When I went back two weeks later my vision was 20/20 and i was very happy As a result of this experience I would highly recommend the Kirk Eye Center. I went back a year later and had the left eye cataract removed and all went well.I have gone back for exams and I am grateful for my vision and the professionalism at the Kirk Eye Center. For courteous and professional care I would highly recommend the Kirk family of opthammologist and their superior staff. H. Lavell . More

I am so excited with the result of my Lasik operation at Kirk Eye Center.  Since I am so pleased with how the operation went and the result.  Here is the overall experience of my procedure. 1. Free consultation / follow up questions I had a Mini-Monovision or Laser Blended Vision as you will find on the internet.  Yes, I was scared of having each eye with different visions. Dr. Kent Kirk along with Ms. Joyce Walter covered all questions and concerns I had prior to the operation. 2. Pre-op preparation Usual blood pressure check, eye drops, choice to take sedative pill...I wouldn't go without it. Nurses were professional and courteous, Dr. Kent also took time to answer additional questions. 3. Creating cornea flap operation Kirk utilize laser cutting method, this is safer than manual cutting method, which I liked.  Only thing is that it is a bit awkward, since you will feel heavy pressure and lose sight on that eye temporary.  All I did was just focus on center light and being steady as much as possible as Dr. Kent encouraged me to do so by saying "Doing great, perfect and etc etc" for less than 30 seconds each eyes. 4. Lasik operation Allegretto WAVE Eye-Q Excimer Laser System.  This machine automatically trace your natural eye movements to eliminate miss firing of laser and it stops, if you move your eye out of the machine's tolerance.  All I did was to keep my eye steadily on green flickering light as Dr. Kent also encouraged me to do.  During the procedure, green light do move around and the light become fuzzy.  What I did is to chase the green light as much as possible and also try to focus on the center of the fuzzy green light.  No worries, I did have a few moments I could not locate the green light, if then, I just focused my eye on where the green light was until see it again. 5. Recovery, day of the operation You will feel sedated from sedative and you will not be able to open your eyes well enough to see.  So, when I got home, I immediately wore protective goggles and went to sleep for 3~4 hours, this is easy since you feel sedated.  Your eyes will be extra sensitive, so make sure room is pitch black.  Don't worry about eye drops, just sleep it away.  I woke up with decent eye sight, enough to function around the house, I still kept wearing sunglasses around the house in dark setting with no TV nor electric devices to soften my eyes hoping for faster healing. 6. Follow up appointment and 1st day I found my eyes already recovered enough to drive.  Feeling is very similar to after swam in a pool full of chlorine...  Dr. Kent confirmed my combined vision is 20/20, then Dr. tap on my elbow and said "you god 20/20 vision!"...My eyes were still fuzz, so I was still a bit skeptic...  I drove to work after the appointment and followed recommended eye drop routines, I even used more tear eye drop (every 30 min) as I found that eyes need moisture to heal.  My eyes did not show improvements throughout the day, but they were good enough for me to drive home at night in rain.  No depth perception nor weird feeling issue due to Mini-monovision... 8. 2nd day after the surgery I woke up with almost 90% of the fuzziness gone...I found myself totally amazed/shocked by the clarity of my vision...  There is a tree in front of our balcony which is about 30 feet away 3 story height.  I can even see crease and dark spot on a leaf almost to the top of the tree 30 feet away.  If this is the result from Mini-Monovision / Laser Blended Vision (one for nearsighted, another for farsighted correction).  I am now a true believer and I am sure my eyes were never this good in my life...what an amazing result this is...I drove to work still wearing sunglasses and tear eye drop every 30 min as thinking of the last 10% clarity...  I am still a bit light sensitiveness, but I am so sure it will subside as it progress, I cannot even wait for next few days of improvements to come...

The nurses were very comforting seeing that I was nervous and the doctor was very professional. I was informed of every occurrence and how I should be feeling which put me at ease. They catered to my every comfort in making sure i was warm and comfortable on the operating bed. I will definitely be recommending them to anyone who is interested in the services they provide. More

This experience was positive from the moment of first contact. Joyce Wolter, who scheduled surgeries was prompt at replying to my initial query. Then the evaluation was thorough (and free). Dr. Kent Kirk explained my three options, answered questions, and I never felt I was being persuaded to have LASIK surgery. I mulled over it for a week, communicating frequently with Joyce about additional questions I had. Then I had the surgery and could not be more pleased! Dr. Kirk explained the procedure before and during, and a nurse held my hand while it was happening! It was quick and painless, and recovery is too. I have 20/20 distance vision for the first time in my life! The follow up visit was quick but thorough. Kirk Eye Center was recommended to me by a friend who had LASIK here and I would make the same recommendation without hesitation. More

He was apprehensive at first but seeing how smoothly it went eased his concerns. The staff was great, the doctors are very knowledgeable and confident in what they do. I would recommend them to anyone. Several members of our family are happy with the service the provide. More

Fantastic lasik experience. Dr. Kirk and the team managed a very simple and easy-to-understand surgery (~60 minutes in and out). Dr. Kirk was available by cell phone to answer my minor post-surgery questions: it was quite shocking to have a doctor return a voicemail within the hour! I can't recommend them enough. More

I had Lasik on 10/18 and while my eyes are still adjusting, I had a really great experience that I don't know why I was nervous to begin with. During my consultation, my options were explained to me, I was explained how the surgery would go and my financing and post surgery care instructions. The day of the surgery, all my questions were answered, everyone was very kind to me, and I felt very calm. During the surgery, the Doctor was explaining everything to me and was being super encouraging with his words and letting me know everything was going great (which was incredibly reassuring). I could not have asked for a better experience and I would highly recommend Kirk to those seeking out Lasik. More

When I originally came to Kirk Eye Center I had no vision in my right eye. I had visited a a center in the Southeast surburb of Chicago and was told that I had vitreous hemorrhaging on the back of my retina. I was instructed to sleep at a forty five degree angle and it would dissipate. After coming back for three weeks with no success, I was sent to a Retinal Surgeon.The retinal surgeon also told me to sleep at a forty five degree angle and it would dissipate in a few days. After I returned in a week the surgeon told me that he would have to do surgery on my retina.He explained to me that he was on the staff at the University of Chicago and that I should get on his list to have the surgery as soon as possible. At this time I told him that I wanted to get a second opinion.He seemed unhappy that I would do that. I was told by a friend that I should go to Kirk Eye Center in River Forest. When I made an appointment at KEC, I spoke with the nurses there and went in to see DR. Scott Kirk. After being examined by Dr Scott who stated that he did not see what the first Opthamologist and Surgeon were talking about.He then brought in Dr. Kent Kirk and the head surgical assistant.They together determined that it was a stage four cataract. Dr Scott then summoned the resident Retinal Surgeon.After the Retinal Surgeon , Dr. Blake Horio looked, he turned the light off, dropped his head and sadly said that " some one was trying to make some money and if they are doing this to you they are doing it to others".Dr Horio then stated that I should come to his office in Hinsdale and he wanted to do a B- Scan.He also stated that it looked like a stage four cataract. I was given an appointment to see Dr.Horio three hours later. Upon arriving at his office and having a B Scan he showed me a rectangular card with two large black circles in the center that were surrounded by what looked like the milky way.He said that if there had been any hemorraging those star like objects would be in the black circles. He then told me to go back to KEC and have Dr. Scott and Lovie (surgical assistant) remove the cataract and I WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE. After making an appointment I went in a week later. On the day of the surger I was greeted by the friendly staff that assured me that everything would be okay. After what seemed to be about fifteen minutes Dr. Scott Kirk asked me how many fingers did I see. I was able to respond correctly right away. After my first post operation visit my vision was 20/25.When I went back two weeks later my vision was 20/20 and i was very happy As a result of this experience I would highly recommend the Kirk Eye Center. I went back a year later and had the left eye cataract removed and all went well.I have gone back for exams and I am grateful for my vision and the professionalism at the Kirk Eye Center. For courteous and professional care I would highly recommend the Kirk family of opthammologist and their superior staff. H. Lavell . More

I was extremely nervous about having cataract surgery. The staff at Kirk made the entire process...from initial exam, through the actual procedure, to the follow up exams a very positive experience. All appointments were completed on time.  Every staff member I encountered was very professional and made sure that all of my questions were answered. Drs.  Kirk, Carter, and Scott Kent were extremely skilled, patient and positive. When it came time to order glasses, the optical arm of the practice was very helpful in navigating the Medicare paperwork. Great job, Kirk! More

I had a wonderful experience at the River Forest Kirk Eye Center. I had the ICL procedure done and was very nervous going into the surgery center being what the procedure entails. The nurses were very comforting seeing that I was nervous and the doctor was very professional. I was informed of every occurrence and how I should be feeling which put me at ease. They catered to my every comfort in making sure i was warm and comfortable on the operating bed. I will definitely be recommending them to anyone who is interested in the services they provide. More

I had LASIK at Kirk Eye Center last week and couldn't have had a better experience. Dr. Kent Kirk was awesome and I felt like he really cared about my eye health. I had previously gone for a consultation at LasikPlus and felt a little uneasy there. It felt like they were trying to get me scheduled for the procedure as fast as possible and spent more time talking about payment than looking at my eyes. I made the appointment at Kirk just to see if it was any different. Dr. Kirk had some concerns about a few things, scheduled me for some extra tests, and I felt so much more taken care of there. It felt like he actually cared about my long term wellness vs just wanting to schedule me for an expensive procedure and get me out the door. Everyone at Kirk was professional, accommodating, and friendly. The LASIK itself was so incredibly fast and painless that I could hardly believe it. Dr. Kirk and the nurses there all prepared me really well for the whole procedure and what would happen after. I'm normally very nervous for medical procedures, but I found the LASIK to be no big deal. It was certainly uncomfortable in the few hours following, but I knew it was normal and got through it with no problems. The next day, I was seeing 20/20 and I have had zero issues in the week since. I keep thinking that I'll try to take my contacts out before I go to sleep because my vision is so good. I would highly recommend going to Kirk to anyone who has been thinking about LASIK. It will change your life! More

I have been seeing Dr. Dean Bauer at Kirk Eye Center for years; he is a wonderful and thorough professional. A few months ago, I had cataract surgery in both eyes done by Dr. Tyler Kirk. The outcome has been great; both eyes healed quickly and completely and I am almost used to my new-found vision! My follow-up has been mostly with Dr. Scott Kirk. I've seen some reviews critical of this practice for rescheduling people with a different doctor than they expected to see. In my experience, this has not been a problem. All of the doctors are highly professional and take the time to review my chart and answer all my questions. The staff is also very efficient and professional. I highly recommend the Kirk Eye Center!

I was very nervous for the weeks leading up to it, but everyone the day of made me feel very confident about the whole thing. Everyone was so kind and took the time to answer my questions.

Dr. Kent Kirk performed cataract surgery in both of my eyes within the past 6 weeks.  My eyes were so bad before that I don't think my prescription could have gotten much stronger.  Now, after the surgeries, I have 20/20 vision!  It is a miracle!  I can see everything without my glasses for the first time in my entire life!  The surgery was very fast and easy.  I never had any pain of any kind.  I was driving by the day following surgery, and a week later it's like it never happened - except that I can see!  I did get something in my eye a couple hours after my surgery and when I went back to the office they were closed.  Dr. Tyler Kirk was still in the surgery center and he came over and cleaned my eye and got whatever it was out.  That was very much appreciated. This is a place where everyone cares.  From Trevor who schedules your surgery and takes care to listen to your needs, to Dr. Kirk who is tremendously skilled at what he does, to all the wonderful nurses in the surgery center who make sure you are comfortable every minute you're there (they gave me extra blankets and a mint chocolate to eat!), they are all so very nice!  The only thing I regret is that now I won't get to visit with Mimi and Robin in the eyeglass department who made sure I've had the perfect glasses for so many years!

I actually found Kirk Eye Center at zocdoc but also read reviews from google and yelp. What a great decision it was to select Kirk Eye Center for my vision problems. My vision was getting cloudy and I felt it was time to get my eyes checked. I needed cataract surgery and Dr Kent Kirk performed that for me yesterday.The procedure took about 15 minutes and I felt no pain during the entire procedure. I had zero side effects: no inflammation, no infection, no swelling, no bleeding, no glaucoma or retinal problems. As I write online, I can read the computer screen better than with my glasses. At my followup visit today Dr Kent Kirk told me that everything was so successful that I could start driving again. No restrictions. I couldn't be more pleased. Dr Kent Kirk is the "Michael Jordan" of ophthalmologists. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Update June 30, 2016: Dr Kent Kirk did my left eye yesterday and did the follow-up today and I now have near 20/20 vision in my left eye. I was able to read the 20/25 line and 2 of the 4 letters on the 20/20 line. He put a distance lens in the left eye and a reading lens in the right eye. I don't need glasses anymore. I couldn't be happier. Both surgeries were done to perfection. I can drive without glasses the day after my surgery. In addition, Medicare plus my supplement paid the entire cost of both cataract surgeries. More
