Dr. Jerome Agrest | Optometrist Emeritus/Founder
Dr. Jerome Agrest founded our practice in 1958 at the Glen Morton Medical Center in Morton Grove, IL and moved the business to Glenview in 1987. Under his guidance, Carillon Vision Care has seen more than 42 thousand unique patients. He has many 4th generation patients that are still under our care today!
Dr. Agrest sold his practice to Dr. Neukirch in 2011. He continued to see patients on a part-time basis until formally retiring in early 2018 coinciding with Carillon’s 60th Anniversary. He still may be seen coming and going from the practice time to time as he will forever be a part of our office family.
