We’re always excited about growth – but let’s face it, there’s something magical about adding two new Optometrists to the practice. As a result, it’s wonderful to announce that Dr. Claire Cordoba and Dr. Ismael Rodriguez will be joining the Brenart Eye Clinic family and begin seeing patients in August of 2022.

Located in the western suburbs of Chicago, both new doctors will be conveniently located at 120 E. Countryside Parkway in Yorkville, Illinois. Brenart’s stand-alone eye clinic has abundant, free, door-side parking, offering patients a large optical area for selecting the perfect eyewear. Brenart Eye Clinic also carries some of the largest inventories of designer frames and specialty contact lenses in the entire Chicagoland area, offering a variety of options for all budgets.

“From the time a child has their first vision screening, all the way through their senior years, our patients receive the best care because of our doctors and staff. Not only do we serve patients in a friendly and compassionate manner, but we also deliver the highest quality care that modern medicine has to offer for ocular health,” said Dr. Nicole Zangler, Practice Owner and Director of Brenart’s Dry Eye Clinic.

“Our patients come first,” says Dr. Zangler. “We’re here to help them receive the best care available. That means we stay well-informed about all the advances, ensuring our patients receive the best possible outcomes related to vision and overall ocular health. We provide cutting edge, state-of-the-art testing, and offer procedures and treatment options that are more conveniently located for our patients. We pride ourselves on finding the right talent and team. We were the first practice in Chicagoland to offer so many eye specialty programs, which have now become the gold standard in the area.”

Originally from Morton, Illinois, Dr. Claire Cordoba received her B.A. in Biology from Augustana College in 2018 before participating in the 3:4 Optometry Dual Degree Program through Augustana College and the Illinois College of Optometry, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Doctor of Optometry degree in 2021. She then completed her residency in Primary Care with an emphasis on Ocular Disease in 2022 at the Indiana University School of Optometry and has a special passion for rehabilitating patients that experience low vision. Dr. Cordoba’s hobbies outside of optometry include reading and taking her golden retriever, Theo, on hikes.

Dr. Ismael Rodriguez is originally from Aurora, Illinois and received his Bachelor of Health Sciences from Aurora University in 2016. He then moved to Chicago where he received his Doctorate Degree from the Illinois College of Optometry in 2020. Since then, Dr. Rodriquez has been serving patients as an Optometrist in Madison, Wisconsin. Brenart Eye Clinic is excited about Dr. Rodriguez’s return to the Yorkville area to serve patients of all ages. Dr. Rodriguez has special passions for contact lens fittings and the treatment of dry eye. Dr. Rodriguez is also fluent in Spanish. Outside of Optometry, he enjoys spending time with family, physical fitness, and trying out new restaurants.

Both Dr. Cordoba and Dr. Rodriguez are accepting new patients starting in August.  For an appointment, call 630-553-6166 or visit us online at
