When Dr. Park began his practice, he started with a beat-up chair and hand-me-down frame racks. With a can of paint and a lot of hard work, little by little he built a thriving clinic. “I saw my dad working seven days a week,” Dr. Park says. “When I started, I worked six days a week, but it was an easy job compared to my parents.”

Dr. Park's clinic has remained a cornerstone of the North Aurora community. “In North Aurora, they feel that I'm a treasure in the community. I feel so honored to be called that,” says Dr. Park. 

The North Aurora community isn’t the only group that has benefitted immensely from Dr. Park’s support. This year, Dr. Park was recognized as the IOA 2023 Optometrist of the Year. Last year, ICO awarded him the 2022 Lifetime Service Award. He has served on the ICO Alumni Council Board, was an executive council member of the Illinois Optometric Association and has been President of the Exchange Club of Aurora, the North Aurora Lions Club and the Fox Valley Optometric Society. Needless to say, he’s been busy.

In 2004, with his son joining the practice and his daughter well on her way to completing her degree, the business was renamed Park Family Eye Care. Here’s a glimpse into a day in his life as an optometrist practicing with his family in North Aurora.
