Chittick Eye Care to open in early March

Chittick Eye Care will open its ninth clinic in downtown St. Joseph in early March.

The clinic will be staffed by a team of four doctors assisted by certified optical and technical staff.

In addition to routine eye care, the clinic will have the advanced technology necessary to diagnose and manage a wide array of eye diseases including glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and diabetic eye disease.

The addition of the clinic is in line with owner and optometrist Dr. Shawn Mallady’s mission to provide accessible and quality eye care to underserved communities.

“It has always been my goal to provide small communities with a hometown eye doctor,” Mallady said. “We strive to be the experts for your eyecare and eyewear needs. The support and welcome we have already received from the St. Joseph community has been fantastic and we look forward to becoming an active part of the community.”

Reserve your appointment now by calling 217-442-2631 or on www.chittickeyecare.com. Chittick Eye Care will be joined by the Chamber of Commerce for a ribbon-cutting and grand opening celebration on April 1st from 4 p.m-7 p.m. All are welcome.

Chittick Family Eye Care has been a leading provider of optometry services and vision care products in the Central Illinois community since 1959 with offices in Danville, Hoopeston, Watseka, Rantoul, Savoy, Villa Grove, Paris, Lincoln, and Saint Joseph. For more information, call 217-442-2631 or visit www.chittickeyecare.com.
