John J. Gardner, O.D.

John J. Gardner, alias Dr. Jack, completed his Optometric studies at the Ohio State University where he was 3rd in his very competitive and competent class. He had at the undergraduate level been given an Academic Scholarship to participate in a unique program at the prestigious Villanova University in Pennsylvania where he excelled. Upon his return to Chicago, he began teaching at the Illinois College of Optometry where he remained for eight years, supervising students' clinical work at the same time that he was caring for patients in his and his father's Optometric office at 63rd and Pulaski, even then considered a state-of-the-art optometric practice. Dr. Jack continues to act as mentor to ICO students who come to our office for experience, a model of optometric organizations.

Dr. Jack has continued and expanded Dr. James' tradition of community involvement. In addition to providing vision testing for local athletes of all calibers, Dr. Jack has written a chapter in a sports vision textbook published in the United Kingdom. He has lectured nationally and internationally on sports vision, and has been a long-time member of the American Optometric Association Sports Vision Section.

Dr. Jack and his wife Paula have two sons, Jack and Andrew, and live in Orland Park.

Thank you to all of those who inquired whether Dr. Gardner ran the Boston Marathon this year. He did not run this year.  Dr. Gardner and staff are all deeply saddened by the bombing and extend prayers to all those affected by the terrorist bombing.
