Gary L. Stephens


Gary has extensive experience in making and fitting eyeglasses. Gary's philosophy is: "it takes a person who knows how to make eyeglasses from raw material before one can sell and fit them".

In the past, it took 15 years of apprenticeship training to become a journeyman optician in all facets of eyeglass making and fitting.

Client testimonials

I started going to Marquette Vision Center about 27 years ago. About 16 years ago, my health insurance changed and I was able to get glasses and eye exams through the insurances' contracted provider. After a horrible experience with the contracted provider, I decided that I got better care and expertise from Marquette and went back to Marquette Vision Center. At Marquette, the staff cares about YOU, and wants the best for your eye care. A lesson well learned. Thank you to the entire staff.

When I moved to Illinois in 2010 I needed a new eye doctor. A long-time patient of Marquette Vision Center referred ,me to Gary and Jeannette. My first visit here so impressed me that I would never look elsewhere for my eye care. Skill, Patience, Respect - these are important to me - and I found them all at Marquette Vision Center.

Marquette Optical has provided my family 27 years of professional examinations. Their personal service has resulted in attractive, quality glasses that have lasted for years.


What a great staff! The doctors and the rest of the staff are very professional, helpful and friendly. They are concerned about your comfort and style with glasses and will spend time helping to make your frame selection. We are always taken care of in a timely manner. I highly recommend Marquette Vision Center.
