Our Eye Doctor
Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Dr. Franceschini takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Meet our doctor:
Dr. Joseph Franceschini received his Bachelor of Science in Biology from Loyola University in 1987. He completed an externship at Westside Veterans Administration Hospital – Eye Clinic in 1990 and graduated Doctor of Optometry from the Illinois School of Optometry / Illinois Eye Institude in 1991.
Dr. Franceschini is a member of the Illinois Optometric Association, President-Elect West Suburban Society; American Collegiate Society of the Association (Director 1990), Contact Lens Society, IANU David Award, 2001; Illinois Society for the Prevention of Blindness; Founding Member, and Chairperson of the Charitable Services Committee of United Care Providers, LLC; and Member of The Laser Network, LLC.
Each year, Dr. Franceschini donates his eye examination fees on World Sight Day - to help the estimated 300 million people who are blind or vision impaired simply because they do not have access to an eye exam and a pair of glasses.
The World Sight Day Challenge is organized by Optometry Giving Sight, which is the only global initiative that specifically targets the prevention of blindness and impaired vision due to “uncorrected refractive error”.
“Who better to ask to support this program than optometrists, their staff and patients who are lucky enough to live in countries where eye care is easily accessible?” said Dr. Joe.“That’s why we are planning a practice celebration each October. It’s an opportunity for our whole office team to support our International Charity of Choice and we hope that our patients will join us too.”
