Dr. Casper graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Science. She then attended Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences-School of Optometry where she earned her Doctorate of Optometry in 2021.

During her time at MCPHS, Dr. Casper was an active member of the Student Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (SVOSH) and was elected president of the group in her third year. She and the other members of SVOSH provided vision screenings at local churches for low income individuals in the community and also provided vision screenings at Special Olympics events. Giving back to the community is something that she is extremely passionate about and wants to continue throughout her career.

Dr. Casper has state board certifications in Illinois and is an active member of the Illinois Optometric Association. She was born and raised in the Chicagoland area and is excited to be practicing in the place that she calls home.

On her days off, Dr. Casper enjoys spending quality time with her family and friends. You can find her in the kitchen trying out new recipes or out on the golf course trying to become a decent golfer. No matter what the activity is, Dr. Casper is always excited to try something new.

Owner | Chief Vision Mechanic

Dr. Ricketts attended The University of Wisconsin and pursued a major in chemistry. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science Degree, he continued his education at the Illinois College of Optometry, earning a Doctorate of Optometry in 1990.

He also attended Vandercook College of Music for a year. While attending the Illinois College of Optometry Dr. Ricketts completed many internships: Primary Care, Ocular Emergencies, Vision Therapy and Low Vision at the Illinois Eye Institute.

He has State Board Certifications in Illinois and Ohio; and is Therapeutically Licensed by the National Board of Optometry for the treatment of Ocular Diseases.

While practicing Optometry in Chicago for over twenty years, Dr. Ricketts has had the privilege of helping many amazing people. Offering continual care and service to “old friends”, while meeting new people everyday is what makes his job so great.

Dr. Ricketts has established Eye Mechanix to be integrated into the community by donating services and forging partnerships with many Chicago not-for-profit organizations.

Sam I am! Although I don't particularly like green eggs and ham, I do like looking into green eyes, or brown or blue... It was on my first visit to the optometrist where I figured out what I wanted to do. There was no looking back and no hesitation between Thing 1 or Thing 2.

I still love Optometry, with the daily mix of interactions and the constant evolution of health, optics, science and technology. On days off, I like to spend time away from the crowds; biking, camping, fishing and hiking with family.
