Same Caring Owners. Same Professional Team. Same Great Service.

Dougal, McClellan, Sullivan, and Ethington Eye Associates has serviced many generations of patients over the past 25 years at Presence Resurrection Medical Center. The practice was originally designed with no intentions to leave but we have outgrown our space. We strive to continue to provide quality services to our patients while providing a great working environment to our staff. The practice will meet this goal by moving to a free-standing building located at 7421 N Milwaukee Avenue Niles, IL 60712. The practice will be closed Monday, February 21 to Wednesday, February 23 for the move. We will open at 8:30 am on February 24, 2022 at the new location.

Our Mission

We strive to provide the most advanced eye care. Our office regularly attends seminars and conferences devoted to new treatments, new technologies and excellent patient care practices. With patient care as our top priority, this is our commitment to you.

Our History

Although our practice has gone through a few name changes in the past, our practice was always known by our doctors. For the last number of years, our practice’s name was Dougal, McClellan, Sullivan, & Ethington Eye Associates. In 2022, we moved our location in Chicago, Illinois to a new, larger office in Niles, IL. Plus, we renamed our practice to Milwaukee Avenue Eye Center. While we have the same great team of eye care professionals, our facility can now comfortably provide our patients with even greater care, convenience, and dedication.

The excitement doesn’t stop there. We’re also changing our name to Milwaukee Avenue Eye Center! We felt it was important to change our name to the location of our original establishment while encompassing the two sides of eye care which is Ophthalmology and Optometry. Our generation of patients have known us though many of our names:

1981- John Skowron Eye Associates

  1. Skowron, Dougal, and McClellan Eye Associates
  2. Skowron, Dougal, McClellan, and Sullivan Eye Associates (SDMS Eye Associates)
  3. Dougal, McClellan, and Sullivan Eye Associates (DMS Eye Associates)

2015 – Dougal, McClellan, Sullivan, and Ethington Eye Associates (DMSE Eye Associates)

Starting Thursday, February 24, 2022,

Dougal, McClellan, Sullivan, and Ethington Eye Associates of 7447 W Talcott Avenue Suite 300 Chicago, IL 60631

will be

Milwaukee Avenue Eye Center at 7421 N Milwaukee Avenue Niles, IL 60712

We will see you there!

I visited Milwaukee Ave. Eye Center on 11/10/ 22.  I had a really good experience.  All of the staff were friendly helpful and professional.  HOWEVER, Wanda Rivera and Renee Coleman were amazing and exceptional.  Wanda took time to find every discount possible.  She also helped me find the perfect pair of glasses with her equally amazing partner Renee.  Renee took so much time with me and worked so hard to help me find styles I didn't think of. She spent so much time and thought to send me home looking my best.  And they both made it so much fun.  I would go back for them anytime!  Loved them!
