The year was 2006. While residents of Peoria and shoppers of Grand Prairie were able to get vision care, something was clearly missing. But, that ‘something’ is hard to identify until you find it. For those living near Grand Prairie, they found it when Bard Optical opened its doors.
More than just a place to receive vision care, Bard Optical became a part of the Grand Prairie community. Bard Optical began in Peoria in 1981 and has deep roots in River City. Its new Grand Prairie location allowed Bard Optical to extend its mission even further: providing Vision For Life for all of its patients.
Once Bard Optical started calling Grand Prairie home, members of the community started to experience vision care differently. Not only does Bard Optical have the best optometrists in Peoria and the greatest selection of designer frames, but they also have a team that goes above and beyond to make each visit welcoming and fun.
Here are only a few choice quotes, out of thousands, from satisfied Bard Optical customers:
“Dr. Schussele is an excellent optometrist who has a great demeanor with me as a patient. She did a thorough job of explaining how to fix my vision issues.”
“Staff was awesome and I enjoy being a patient!”
“They all were so helpful! The staff you have are so sweet and caring! They love their job!”
“I was able to take my time and select frames that would both fit my (somewhat restrictive as to frame type) Rx, and would make me feel confident that I had made the right selection for appearance.”
“One of the associates at the Peoria Illinois, Shoppes of Grand Prairie was extremely helpful and flexible, and quoted several different options for my lenses, frames, and sunglasses for me, and allowed me to take specific notes so I could make sure I could budget appropriately.”
“Mary Beth at the Peoria Grand Prairie location was outstanding. I have a complicated prescription and she was very knowledgeable and patient. The glasses turned out great.”
As Bard Optical celebrates 10 years at Grand Prarie with an Anniversary Celebration on April 29th, you are cordially invited to see why so many customers have glowing things to say about the team and its services.
Also, as you attend the event and peruse purchase options (like a new pair of designer glasses), know that a percentage of the proceeds will go to the Heart of Illinois United Way.
We can’t wait to see you celebrate your community and your vision on Friday, April 29th!
