Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Preston G. Kaye, O.D.

Dr. Preston G. KayeDr. Preston Kaye earned his Doctor of Optometry Degree from the Illinois College of Optometry in 1995. The curriculum includes biomedical courses such as human anatomy, immunology, systemic disease and pharmacology. Ocular courses include anatomy and physiology, visual perception, neuroanatomy, optics, sensory aspects of vision, and color vision. Dr. Kaye is currently a member of the Illinois Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association.

Extensive training was gained at both the Illinois Eye Institute in Chicago, as well as Olympia Fields Osteopathic Hospital in the areas of primary eye care, pediatric optometry, binocular vision, contact lenses, low vision rehabilitation, ocular diseases, and emergency care.

Dr. Kaye is proud of his South Dakota heritage. He grew up in Mitchell, SD, and graduated from Dakota Wesleyan University in SD, earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biology, with a minor in Chemistry. Attending this well rounded liberal arts college now allows Dr. Kaye to relate to his patients on many levels of conversation and clinical explanation. He has enjoyed being part of several choirs and the Nash automobile club.

Dr. Kaye has merged these experiences into a professional and modern, yet down to earth and comfortable, family eye care practice. He has also participated in local and international missions, including a two week trip to Venezuela with the organization Gift of Sight.

Why Optometry?
“My choice of optometry as a career was an early decision influenced heavily by my own experiences, need for glasses, relationship with my optometrist, and the incredible difference that clear vision makes for an individual.”

In What Aspects of Optometry Are You Most Interested?
“The component of optometry that I enjoy the most is the medical site which includes working with people in management of glaucoma, macular degeneration, and many other systemic and eye related problems.”

“I enjoy automobiles and the creativity, power, and expressions of the designers and the times that they represent. I also enjoy new technologies, wood-working and being able to share all of these hobbies with my children.”

Dr. Liesl A. Kaye, O.D.

Dr. Liesl A. KayeDr. Liesl Kaye earned her Doctor of Optometry Degree from the Illinois College of Optometry in 1995. She, like Dr. Preston, also had extensive training at both the Illinois Eye Institute in Chicago, as well as Olympia Fields Osteopathic Hospital. Dr. Kaye is also currently a member of the Illinois Optometric Association, American Optometric Association, as well as the Fellowship Christian Optometrists.

Dr. Kaye grew up in Prospect Heights and Long Grove. She majored in biology at Loyola University in Chicago and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Science. She practiced in Arlington Heights for seven years, before moving to Lake in the Hills in 2002 to open Kaye Eyecare of Huntley.

“Our charter patients will remember our toddler sons, and later our newborn daughter, who still have a presence in many of the common tasks in the office. Jonathan and Daniel are now in high school, and Lillia, in middle school.”

“Our family enjoys the connections between our church, community, schools, and town activities. Our community is a mix of down home values and professional opportunities, and a wonderful place to raise our family and practice optometry.”

Why Optometry?
“When I was sixteen I strongly believed that the field of optometry was where I wanted to be. The importance of a medical profession, and the element of the immediate reward of being able to help someone see more clearly has not wavered since.”

In What Aspects of Optometry Are You Most Interested?
“Another reason I love the profession of optometry is the broad spectrum of patient care it offers. I enjoy showing kindness and extra care to an elderly patient struggling to understand dry eye, or glaucoma. I enjoy presenting the newest technology in lens treatments and instruments to high tech patients. Even more, I enjoy working with young children, infants, and children and adults with special needs. These patients whose caregivers are often unsure of where to go, are the very patients I adore!”

“Mom” is a favorite role of mine! Spending time with my family, whether on simple walks or a long road trip, always brings me many smiles! I played the oboe in an orchestra for eighteen years, and studied the piano for ten, giving piano lessons to fifteen students of my own for four years while in college. I currently enjoy working with children in Sunday school and the Awana program each week.
