Dr. Weil specializes in…

Dr. Weil graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry and as been practicing for over 30 years!  Following her post graduate studies, she joined the faculty at the University of Houston, College of Optometry as an assistant professor where she lectured on the treatment of lazy eyes and other childhood conditions. Most recently, she has worked with the Infant Welfare Society, as well as and other private practices in the suburbs. As a result, she is excellent with both children and adults… and loves a challenge!

As a developmental optometrist, Dr. Weil performs additional testing to determine if a patient has adequate visual function to perform simple tasks such as reading, switching focus from the board to a desk, and to simple tasks such as catching a ball. If your vision interferes with your ability to read, learn or pay attention, you made need visual therapy. Dr. Weil works with our patients to solve these issues, through various techniques.

In her free time, Dr. Weil enjoys trying new restaurants, spending time with her friends and family, reading, and cooking. She loves to go to the theater and exposing her son to the arts!

Why did Dr. Weil become an optometrist?

After Dr. Weil graduated with a BA in Biology, she wanted to continue on to graduate school in the sciences. Her twin brother was working towards a PhD in Chemistry, so she needed to keep up with her brother and be a doctor also!! Dr. Weil applied to the Women in Science program at IIT & to the Illinois College of Optometry. After talking to family friends that were in the field, she decided to attend the optometry program…and it turned out to be the perfect fit!

Dr. Weil is great with kids too!

Dr. Weil also conducts children’s eye exams at Eye Spy, even for kids that are too young to read. She tests the need for glasses, depth perception, color vision, strabismus (eye turns) and amblyopia. She can also assess the need for visual therapy for binocular vision problems or perceptual issues. She has extensive experience with visual therapy for kids, which can solve many of these issues.
