Affiliated Organizations

Since 1976, the physicians of Illinois Retina have developed strong relationships with several prominent organizations. Below is a brief list of our affiliated organizations:

Foundation For Sight

Preserving the Gift of Sight

According to the National Eye Institute, more than 3.5 million Americans are blind or suffer from some type of visual impairment. Sadly, that number is expected to nearly double by the year 2030 if more isn’t done to detect and treat eye disease earlier. At Illinois Retina Associates, we’re committed to preserving the gift of sight.

Through research, clinical studies, teaching, and the development of new instruments and techniques, our doctors are leading the way in advancing the field of retina medicine and surgery. But that kind of commitment requires significant funding. That’s why Illinois Retina Associates has created the Foundation for Sight. The Foundation for Sight helps fund clinical research studies and educate future retinal specialists – with the singular goal of preserving the gift of sight.


Patient safety is our top priority. If you are having flu-like symptoms, fever, cough, chills, shortness of breath please DO NOT VISIT US at this time and contact your local health provider.

To ensure your health is protected, we are limiting the number of people in our offices. We are asking that ONLY PATIENTS enter our office. Visitors and/or support persons should remain in the car or other location. If the visitor or support person must be present, screening questions will be asked and if positive responses are received the visitor/ support person will not be allowed in the office.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
