Dr. Lavender Streiff


Dr. Lavender Streiff graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry. She completed her Optometric Residency in Primary Care (Ocular Disease, Low Vision, and Contact Lens Concentrations) at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. Dr. Streiff is a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry. Dr. Streiff is also a member of the American Academy of Optometry, American Optometric Association, and the Illinois Optometric Association.

You may have noticed or heard that Dr. Streiff’s hours have been reduced. She will be living in central Wisconsin for the next few years with her active duty Army husband and her daughters. Since she is commuting back to see patients, her schedule has been reduced. Dr. Streiff plans to be accessible for patients that prefer to see her but is fully supportive of the other doctors in the practice who are wonderful and more than qualified to see her patients. After several more years of potential travel, Dr. Streiff and her family plan to settle back in Chicagoland and her schedule will be expanded. Until then, we appreciate your patience and flexibility.

Under the advisement of the CDC, we are rescheduling our routine eye care appointments and offering Telehealth for emergent issues that may not need to be seen face-to-face. We will be scheduling Telehealth emergency appointments for video consultations with our doctors for patients in need of non-routine eye care. Please call 847-254-9665 to set up a video consultation. We will try to see your eye care emergencies if we can. If we can't help with your eye emergency, you should go to your local emergency room.

We are prepared to navigate these unique and challenging circumstances with the health and safety of our patients and employees as our focus. And because of that commitment, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close effective March 23, 2020. We will continuously evaluate when to re-open based on recommendations from local, state, and federal health officials. We love this community. We love connecting with each of you and serving you. We love our team. Right now, our commitment is putting everyone's health first, but we look forward to opening our doors again as soon as possible. We appreciate your patience with us as we try to do what’s best, healthy and safe for our patients, employees, and community.

Thank you for being a valued Bensenville Eye Care patient.
