“Great Staff, Great frames, It is a place everyone needs to consider when they are considering upgrading your frames or getting frames for the first time!”

-Jay Stouffer | Facebook

“The lively colors and comfortable seating make this doctor's office more of a chic studio than a measurer of cataracts. Gorgeous frames line the walls while the evening sun setting in the west glistens across the glass. I can't believe I'm in a doctor's office! The staff at Eye Mechanix is great. Similar to his office, Dr. Ricketts possesses a whimsical bedside manner. His informed but relaxed approach to his craft is refreshing in the world of bland doctoral farts. The ladies compliment Dr. Ricketts's attitude nicely with a great level of humor backed with knowledge and a keen fashion sense - an imperative quality in optometry.”

“I really like this optometrist for his attitude and the approach to vision. It feels good to see again, thanks to the fun and friendly staff of Eye Mechanix.”

-Andrew H. | Yelp

“I enjoyed everything about Eye Mechanix. The Dr. was very gentle, quite polite and I felt very comfortable talking to him. The staff was excellent. The ladies were friendly, sincere, and fun to talk to. They always offered me coffee and were patient and supportive with the amount of time (two visits) I took to pick out frames. They even let me know they had a new line arrive that I may like to view. Each time I was there, I felt so welcomed. There is a wide range of frames and plenty of affordable options. Many of the styles were edgy, modern, and unique, but still timeless. I felt like I was getting a pair of glasses that hardly anyone else in Chicago would be wearing. I highly recommend them and will certainly use their services again!”

-H. H. | Yelp

“ This place is fantastic! Super nice people. After looking almost everywhere for frames, I ended up buying 2 pairs of glasses from Eye Mechanix. Beth helped me try on dozens of different pairs until I found the ones I liked, They also came in very quickly. Funniest part was that I found out about them at Four Eyes. I told them that I wanted unique looking frames and the sales person told me to leave and go over to these people. So glad he did!!!”

-Scott B. | Yelp

“Went in for an exam, the doctor was excellent,took his time,and explained everything to me. The ladies helped me pick out an awesome pair of frames. they really know what they are doing !!! highly recommend this place.”

-Andy Avery | Sales Force

“I had a great great experience at Eye Mechanix- the facility is very nice, great selection of frames- I found a very trendy pair that I would never have expected to look good on my face. My prescription that Dr Ricketts chose for me was really great for my vision and Beth and Jamie are great for helping me out at the office! I highly recommend them to anyone!”

-Paul Medici | Sales Force

I LOVE my new glasses! Thank you Dr Randy Ricketts and the super friendly and brutally honest staff at Eye Mechanix. This is the first time I didn't need my best friend to fly in from LA to help me choose a frame!


Love this place! Fabulous staff, great selection, easy parking, late hours and they accept Davis Vision insurance. We will be customers for life!
