Specialties Visual Effects Optical is a fashion forward eyegla History Established in 1989. Visual Effects Optical was born out of Dr. Chet Steinmetz's desire to have his own business. After graduating from optometry school in 1983, Dr. Chet worked as an employed optometrist. In early 1989 the location on Clybourn was discovered. Within six months, the decision to open Visual Effects Optical became a reality, and in October 1989 history was made. It didn't take long for the neighborhood to discover at Visual Effects an easy going, fashion knowledgeable optometrist in location with parking. Over the next few years, as the selection of frames grew from 600 to 2000, the reputation of Dr. Chet's

Dr Steinmetz suggested the PERFECT glasses for me! I love my new glasses. He has a knack for finding the right shape and color that is perfect for your face. His assortment of frames is second to none, I had so many options to choose from. Dr Steinmetz took time at my eye exam explaining everything. My new glasses came in quick and the ladies at the front desk were friendly, helpful and efficient. What a great experience!

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Steinmetz for almost 15 years. If you are seeking the perfect frames, please don't waste your time with other vendors. Dr. S knows what's on-trend in finishes and shapes, and carefully explains what to look for in a good fit. He often picks the perfect frame on the first try. (You'll then try on another 20 pairs, only to realize that he was right all along.) I hadn't been in for quite a few years, and when I returned I was pleasantly surprised that he remembered me. You won't regret going to see Chet.

A Few Years ago I wrote a review... and apparently hit the wrong STAR....
Visual Effects Optical is the Very Best place to go for Eye Care.
I have been seeing Dr. Chet Steinmetz as a Eye Doctor for somewhere around 30 years, before Visual Effects, so has most of my family. My Granddaughter is a new patient of Dr. Chet's. I recommend that if you are not already a patient you get into see him next chance you get. The new locations is wonderful... and easy to park. Thanks Doc for our 5 Star Care!
