Peoria, IL – At the end of April, Bard Optical’s Campustown and Metro Centre offices are joining forces under one roof with a merger. All operations will shift exclusively to the Metro Centre office at 4620 N. University. Bard Optical leaders say their valued patients can expect the same quality of care they’ve become accustomed to after the merger.

With a larger space, a wider array of eyewear options, and more appointment availability, there are a variety of patient perks that result from this merger, Bard Optical’s Vice President Mick Hall said.

“We strive to offer the best for our patients, and that means adjusting our approach to consider their needs more clearly,” said Hall. “This merger gives our Campustown patients access to a larger selection of frames, less congested traffic, better parking options, all in a location just a couple of miles away up University Ave.”

For over 50 years, Bard Optical has been serving the community from their Metro Centre office. Their team is excited for the opportunity to care for an even greater portion of Peoria residents by adding the Campustown practice into the fold.

Bard Optical provides patients with a breadth of high-quality services and products, including eye exams, ocular disease management, eyeglasses, and contact lenses. The leadership at Bard Optical said they offer essential services and are proud to continue to do so. Hall also said that convenience is key to them, and that Bard Optical has several other offices in Peoria and nearby.

“Campustown patients can also be seen at our locations at 8309 N. Knoxville and 7715 N. Grand Prairie Dr. as well as our other offices in East Peoria, Washington or Pekin.”

Bard Optical is accepting appointments for new and existing patients, and those used to seeing doctors at Campustown will be transitioned over to Metro Centre at the end of April. For more information on the practice, visit
