Welcome to the
Illinois Society of Eye Physicians & Surgeons!

Our Golden Anniversary! • 50 Years • 1970 - 2020

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.

It was on July 22, 1970, when Drs. Frank Kresca, Burton Krimmer and 14 of their colleagues filed the Articles of Incorporation to establish the Illinois Association of Ophthalmology. Now, 50 years later, that organization continues to thrive in service of its more than 500 members in practice and training, as well as their patients. We thank the 27 ophthalmologists who have served as president, the hundreds who have held seats on the board of directors, and the many volunteers over the years who have worked to make the Illinois Society of Eye Physicians & Surgeons an organization dedicated to serving the visual health of Illinois citizens.
