Dr. Asano's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Asano "Dr. Kaori Asano is originally from California where she graduated from UCLA with a BS in Molecular Biology. She moved to Chicago to attend the Illinois College of Optometry, where she graduated magna cum laude with her Doctorate of Optometry. She received several awards upon graduation including: The Alcon Clinical Excellence Award, The Walman Optical Corporation Scholarship, and was named in the article "Next Generation of Optometry Leadership" by Vision Monday magazine. She chose to continue her training by completing an optional residency in primary care/ocular disease at the Illinois Eye Institute (IEI). After completing residency, she became a faculty member at IEI, where she continues to teach optometry students as Clinical Assistant Professor. Dr. Asano has been practicing in the downtown area since 2007. As her positive online reviews from her previous offices can attest, patient satisfaction and education are her utmost concern. Dr. Asano's area of interest is corneal disease and specialty contact lens fitting. Her clinical background includes co-managing surgical cases such as cataracts, LASIK, and PKP. Dr. Asano also has experience with pediatric patients from conducting eye exams at Chicago Public Schools. Dr. Asano is an active member of the Illinois Optometric Association as well as the American Optometric Association. She is also a member of Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (VOSH) and has traveled with them to several South American countries on volunteer missions to provide eye exams and glasses to those in need. In her free time, Dr. Asano likes taking fitness classes, traveling, cooking, and spending time with her husband, two-year-old son and dog. Opening her own practice, Eyes on Fulton, has fulfilled a dream for Dr. Asano. She looks forward to providing the public with excellent eye care while using the latest technology as well as styling patients with the highest quality eyewear."
