Get to know Optometrist Dr. Sung Y. Kim, who serves patients in Glenview, Illinois.

Dr. Kim, a board certified optometrist with expertise in ocular disease treatment and specialty contact lenses, practices at Vision Central in Glenview, Illinois. 

Her professional dedication extends to her passion for Myopia Management, where she specializes in techniques to slow down myopia progression in children. Her focus includes orthokeratology, MiSight contact lenses, and atropine treatment for myopia control.

Vision Central is a full service eye and vision care provider, accepting eye emergencies and scheduled appointments. Patients throughout the Glenview area come to Vision Central because they know they will receive personal attention and professional care.

With an educational background rooted in the United States, Dr. Kim completed her undergraduate studies at Loyola University Chicago, and then received her Doctor of Optometry Degree from the Illinois College of Optometry in 2006. Her clinical externship experiences were notably at the University of Chicago Ophthalmology Department, Battle Creek VA Ophthalmology Department, and Vision Care Specialists (CIBA Vision). These diverse clinical exposures have enriched her professional journey in the field of optometry.

Optometry is a health care profession that involves examining the eyes and applicable visual systems for defects or abnormalities, as well as diagnosing and managing eye disease. Optometrists are primary eye care doctors who perform comprehensive eye examinations to detect and treat various visual abnormalities and eye diseases. Being a regulated profession, an optometrist’s scope of practice may differ depending on the location. Thus, disorders or diseases detected outside the treatment scope of optometry (i.e. those requiring certain surgical interventions) are referred out to relevant medical professionals for proper care, more commonly to ophthalmologists who are physicians that specialize in the tertiary medical and surgical care of the eye. Optometrists typically work closely together with other eye care professionals, such as ophthalmologists and opticians, to deliver quality and efficient eye care to the general public.

On a more personal note, Dr. Kim speaks English, Korean, and Spanish.
