Preliminary IEI patient surveys have long indicated a desire to have an in-house pharmacy. Now, this request is being granted. Construction has begun on the Bronzeville Pharmacy. This facility will be housed within the Illinois Eye Institute to serve the prescription needs of patients, staff, and students. The pharmacy’s grand opening is slated for Spring 2016.
Additionally, a new Diabetic Eye Clinic within the IEI has been established. This suite will initially serve new patients with a history of diabetes, and will ultimately be a referral center for diabetic patients from our community health center partners.
