Our Story

Division Optical of Chicago was founded upon two principles – providing the best service and supplying exclusive, quality eyewear collections for our patients.

Having been in Wicker Park / Bucktown for more than ten years, d/vision is respected in the community and comes highly recommended.

I think it's remarkable that I still like eyeglasses after wearing them for as long as I have. Additionally, I’ve been an optician for 20 years. My name is Chris Foreit. I started d/vision in 2004 with a few friends. We wanted to have a fun atmosphere that housed terrific frames and sunglasses, also one that offered courteous and professional service.

We’re human at d/vision, meaning we try to always get it right, but occasionally make mistakes like everyone else. What I like to think distinguishes us from other shops is how we might resolve instances of unsatisfied customers. I would prefer you enjoy your glasses, and be pleased with the service from our doctors and opticians, if not, please let me know.


It is our goal to give you a first rate eye exam, and assist you in picking glasses and sunglasses that first fit you well, and secondly make you feel comfortable and excited to wear. All of the eyeglass frames and sunglasses we carry have been hand picked for specific reasons. In most instances, the collections on hand represent independent companies that only specialize in making frames. They are passionate about design, and conscientious about quality and fit.

What we have, represents in my opinion the best of what the market has to offer. Each designer has the distinction of hand assembly and using the best materials available to make a long lasting, quality pair of glasses. The lenses and lens options we use here are also chosen for their clarity and durability. As much as we want you returning to purchases new glasses, we would prefer it's because your previous ones are still working great and you just want another pair.

We have an optometrist seven days a week, and accept many vision insurance plans. d/vision also offers a wide range of contact lens services. Please call, or if possible stop in to have a look at the shop and meet us. Getting your eyes checked and choosing new glasses can be a bear sometimes. Why not let us make it less painful, and maybe even fun.

Thanks for reading,

Chris Foreit

Travis Park, O.D., is a graduate of Berkeley Optometry and Stanford University and has been practicing optometry since 2008. His primary interest is in helping patients achieve their best vision possible. Determining a patient's best visual outcome is as much an art as it is a science, as much being a listener as it is providing a treatment, according to Dr. Park.

With roots in California, Travis is an alternative transportation advocate, architecture and park fan, and is passionate about Chicago. In his off time you may see him riding his bike, walking his dog, or exploring the many great things Chicago has to offer.
