Welcome to the 
Illinois Society of Eye Physicians & Surgeons!

Our 45th Year    1970 • 2015

The mission of ISEPS is to serve the total visual health care needs of the people through public and professional education, membership services, and legislative advocacy.  The Illinois Society of Eye Physicians & Surgeons is dedicated to the public's direct access to an ophthalmologist's care.

As of last year, we have a new name!  Beginning in 2014, we're now the Illinois Society of Eye Physicians and Surgeons (ISEPS) -- which we believe better describes the services and functions of ophthalmologists in the state.  ISEPS members are dedicated to providing outstanding medical and surgical eye care to all citizens of Illinois.
