About Us


Contacts and Specs is a family owned optical boutique founded in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood in 1982. We are confident that we can help you find the perfect pair of frames that fit your face with comfort and stylistic specificity.
After 30 years in the Lakeview community, where we have developed a loyal following, we are pleased to announce the opening of our Logan Square location. In keeping with our passion of providing cutting-edge eyewear, we will continue to keep you styled with the latest eyewear trends.

Our opticians are highly skilled with over a decade of experience. We show the best of the best in eyewear fashion through collections from all over the globe. You want sexy? We have it. Looking for light and conservative? No problem. If you want truly bad ass fashion that pushes the envelope in eyewear design, even better! 

Eye exams are available by appointment and hours vary by location. Our optometrists provide individualized care for all patient needs, including Lasik consultations. Please call or set up an appointment here with our optometrist. If you are in Chicago or plan on visiting soon, we welcome you to come visit our stores and see for yourself!
