CustomEyes Southport


Your eyes are one of your most important features. They enable you to focus on the meaningful details of every-day life; small moments of love, laughter, and exploration — all things that help to define us. It is so important that your eyes are well taken care of. And when something doesn’t feel quite right, it can be unsettling and feel as though you are losing a part of yourself — we can assure you, it doesn’t have to feel this way. We’ll get you back to seeing and feeling great again.


At CustomEyes, we are your local, eye care company that has been operating in Chicago since 2003. As an independent company, our goal is to always provide you with the best possible solution from which you will receive the most benefit from. We will never suggest something you simply do not need. We understand the apprehension around getting your eyes tested or wearing glasses for the first time. We are here to make you feel as comfortable as possible, giving you the advice and care that you need. Whether you are looking to have an eye exam, are in need of new glasses or contact lenses or you would simply like to have some advice — we are here to help you. We have five offices here in Chicago, so we'll never be too far away for you to visit!


When you find that your vision may not be what it used to be or something just doesn’t feel quite right, please don’t let it pass! Please get in touch with us using one of the buttons below:



An eye exam can seem quite daunting the first time around. Not knowing what to expect or feeling worried about the outcome — you are not alone. We are here to help put you at ease and assure you that you have nothing to worry about. Whatever the outcome may be, we’ll ensure you are feeling a whole lot better about it when you leave our practice.


At CustomEyes, your comprehensive eye exam will last around 30 minutes. The examination will include a thorough determination of prescription, as well as a complete evaluation of ocular health. A contact lens exam is available in conjunction with your exam. The contact lens exam is required annually for contact lens wearers in order to maintain good ocular health in relation to your contact lenses. It also includes any trial contact lenses and follow up visits needed for our doctors to find the healthiest and most comfortable lens for you.


If your vision isn’t what it used to be or if you would just like to have a good, healthy check-up, get in touch with us below!

While a student at ICO, he worked as an assistant at the University of Chicago to some of the nation's top Ophthalmologists.  After working at a chain optical during college, Dr Sculley wanted to open his own practice so he could make the best decisions for his patients rather than listen to corporate directives.  In 2003, Dr. Sculley and Dr. Crumbliss opened the first CustomEyes location on Southport.


Dr Sculley currently serves as a board member of the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce.  He is a regular at Wrigley Field and enjoys traveling with family and friends. He currently resides in Roscoe Village with his three English Bulldogs, Rico, Winston, and Leeroy.
