RIVER FOREST, IL, July 02, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Kirk Eye Center announced on Monday that Dr. Tyler Kirk and Dr. Carter Kirk are now full partners at the practice. Dr. Tyler and Dr. Carter are both board-certified ophthalmologists, as well as the sons of Dr. Scott Kirk.

“People trust family businesses because of the quality of service and the hands-on attention,” said Dr. Scott Kirk, board-certified ophthalmologist at Kirk Eye Center. “As both a doctor and a father, I am immensely proud to practice alongside my sons. I know they will continue our family legacy of quality care and commitment to the patient.”

Dr. Harold Kirk founded Kirk Eye Center in 1955. Dr. Harold was joined in the 1980s by his two sons, Dr. Scott and Dr. Kent Kirk. Over the last 10 years, the next generation – Dr. Tyler Kirk and Dr. Carter Kirk – joined the practice.

The current Kirk Eye Center location in River Forest, Illinois, opened in 1986. The practice also has an additional office in Gurnee, Illinois.

Having multiple generations of ophthalmologists under one roof enables Kirk Eye Center to provide a wide range of vision correction and eye care services. These range from LASIK and laser cornea surgery to treatment options for conditions such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, dry eye syndrome, and more.
