Dr. Loretta is the best. I had a emergency and she said to come in. Turns out I had a piece of metal. She took it out. I can’t thank her enough. She saved my eye. Clean office and friendly staff.

The first time I went here I felt totally comfortable.
My nephew was being sized for his glasses.
After sitting there for a little bit bored on my phone I decided I was gunna set up and appointment.
The eye Dr. Is amazing sadly I don’t remember her name but she was wearing really cute shoes and her hair was blonde like mine. The whole appointment she made me feel really comfortable, we talked the whole time. Not once did i feel uncomfortable.

If your in search of an eye Dr. And want the family feel I would recommend this place.

Very friendly, passionate and personable staff! Dr. Loretta De Koster was very patient and thorough with ensuring my contact lens fit and were the best prescription for both eyes. I went through 3 different trial contacts for my left eye alone and her pleasant demeanor did not budge once. Great experience! I will definitely be going back for all my eye care needs.

Great place to get your eyes checked!!! I came in for an appointment for mom and ended up with appointments for my sister and myself. Mom had Diabetes eye check. Sister is getting glasses. I received treatment for an eyeball scratch caused by my 5month old son. The staff was concerned and the service was great with my family!!

I have been going to Melrose Eye Care for years. Their dedication to providing fantastic eye care is the best in Chicago. Dr. Loretta De Koster takes her time to make sure you can see clearly and there are no underlying eye problems. There is no price that you can place on having glasses that fit correctly and you can see out of them. I now live in another state but I have no problems coming to Chicago the get the best eye care. Thank you Dr. Loretta De Koster.

Top notch service. On site opticians. Takes Medicaid. Usually street parking right in front. Dr. DeKoster is awesome! If you don’t like to wait, schedule a morning appointment.

I have been a patient of Dr. Loretta De Koster for over 2 years and I can honestly say that she is THE BEST when it comes to eye care. In all of my years of going to an eye doctor, I have never had such a more thorough and extensive eye exam in my life. Dr. De Koster and her wonderful staff (most notably, Betsy for her warmth and welcoming nature), go above and beyond in treating your eyes. From pre-exam testings, to the actual eye exam and then to the fittings, it doesn’t get any better than this. They truly care about the patients that have the good fortune of coming here.

You can have your America’s Best and all of the other advertised eye centers that treat people who go there with an arm’s length type of service and who charge for every little thing. If you want Illinois’ Best, go no further that Melrose Eye Center where they treat you like family.

To the people giving Dr. De Koster 1 star reviews, I don’t know what eye center YOU went to, but obviously it is not Melrose Eye Center. Maybe these people are the type who give bad reviews who’ve never been here. But whatever they wrote is the complete opposite of those who actually go here and are treated like family. Ignore the negative reviews. They’re not worth your time or faith.

Very professional office. I worked with Anna and she is an absolute Eyewear rockstar. I will recommend Melrose Eye Care to anyone in the area looking for a trendy office where everyone is knowledgeable and helpful. You will not have a bad experience here.
