James Tuel, O.D.


Dr. Tuel has spent the last 25 years building an independently owned eye care practice that outshines the rest. His mission is to provide outstanding quality of care, service, and state-of-the-art technology to meet the demands of today’s patient. In a time when time spent with a doctor is rapidly diminishing, he feels it is vital to spend time with you, discussing health issues, vision and product trends, and addressing your needs.

Dr. Tuel is a native of Joliet. He attended Joliet Central High School and Joliet Jr. College. After receiving an A.S. from JJC, he went to the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, where he graduated with a Bachelors degree in Biology. He received his Doctor of Optometry Degree from the Indiana University School of Optometry in Bloomington, Indiana in 1989.

Dr. Tuel is married with two sons and loves all things sports! His favorites, The Fighting Illini and the Chicago Cubs!
