While serving as a Society President of the Illinois Optometric Association, I had the pleasure of getting to know and befriending my fellow colleague Dr. Vince Brandys. Dr. Brandys has lived in Glenview and has become a very active member of the community for the past few years. He inquired if he could work in our practice a few days per week while still maintaining his position at the Illinois College of Optometry. I believe this is a perfect fit as Dr. Brandys possesses a similar forward-thinking “style” of practicing Optometry and he will be a great new addition to the Carillon Vision Care team. He is currently accepting new patients and starts this Friday. His brief biography follows:
Vince Brandys, O.D.
Dr. Vince Brandys is a well-respected optometric author, lecturer, and a trustee of the Illinois Optometric Association. He is the full-time Senior Director for Governmental and External Affairs for the Illinois Eye Institute.
Dr. Brandys achieved his Doctorate in Optometry in 1990 from the Illinois College of Optometry after receiving a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences from DePaul University. Dr. Brandys believes that primary health care should encompass the eyes, and his goal is to provide education and the highest level of care to each patient he sees.
Dr. Brandys moved to Glenview in 2012 and resides with his family in Valley Lo. Outside of the office, he enjoys golfing and spending time with his wife, Leeann, as well as their five adult kids, two dogs, and two cats. We were pleased to have him join Carillon Vision Care as a part-time associate in 2014.
