Experienced Lasalle-Peru Eye Doctor
At Bard Optical, everything we do, we do for the patient. Each decision we make about your care is made with your best interests at heart. That means that whether you’re a long-time patient or are visiting us for the first time, we’ll take the time to understand your eyes and make you feel at home with the family at Bard Optical.
An important part of understanding your eyes is learning how you’re using them. Our Peru team, led by Dr. Joseph Jackson, spends time getting to know about your work, lifestyle, eye health history, and vision goals so that we can tailor our solutions to you.

Our Medical Approach to Eye Care
One of the things that sets Bard Optical apart is our commitment to more than just vision and eyewear. Many eye diseases can develop without symptoms, meaning that once you notice them, the damage to your eyes and eyesight may already be too severe to resolve. Our Peru eye doctors consider your whole eye health in our comprehensive eye exams. Using cutting-edge screening and imaging technology, we can catch a range of eye conditions well before they’ve done any damage.
Eye Care Services in LaSalle-Peru, IL
Whether or not you currently use eyewear, long-term eye health begins with scheduling regular eye exams. We use advanced technology to screen for a variety of eye conditions and diseases, making sure your eyes are healthy now and in the future. If we detect an issue, we can help treat and manage your condition, or refer you out to a trusted specialist when necessary. After assessing the health of your eyes, we‘ll update your vision prescription. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, we’ll make sure your eyewear gives you crystal-clear vision.
Your eyes are as unique as your fashion sense, and your glasses should fit your style as well as they fit your face. Our large frame selection ranges from practical to designer, and our opticians can match you with the perfect pair for your style and budget. After you’ve selected your frames, we’ll outfit them with the latest lens technology in our optical lab in Peoria.
Your contact lenses should allow you to enjoy clear vision while forgetting that they’re even there. Our Peru optometrists carefully measure your eyes, and help you try on different lenses until you find the perfect pair for you. Then, we’ll walk you through how to put them in, take them out, and care for them. You can even order and reorder your eyewear from the comfort of your home with our online contact lens store
