Welcome to Gailmard Eye Center, a nationally recognized practice of optometry that was established on Ridge Road in Munster in 1976. GEC has grown into one of the largest and most successful independent optometric practices in the country. This success has occurred by word-of-mouth referral and is primarily the result of our constant quest for excellence in patient satisfaction and eye care technology. We want Gailmard Eye Center to serve as your family's eye care practice for life.
Patients and staff of Gailmard Eye Center are saddened by the passing of our friend and colleague, John. He was an outstanding optician who provided excellent eye care to our community for 15 years. He will be greatly missed and we extend our deepest sympathy to his family.
The office will be closed the following dates....Thursday, December 24th, Friday, December 25th and Saturday, December 26th as well as Friday, January 1st. We will be open 9-1 on Thursday, December 31st from 9-1 and Saturday, January 2nd from 9-1. Happy Holidays! More »
