Dr. Gabrielle M. Szwajca-Drewniak

Gabrielle M. Szwajca-Drewniak, O.D. was born and raised in Chicago. She is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and earned her Doctor of Optometry Degree at the Illinois College of Optometry.

While in Optometry School and as a practicing OD, she was a member of SVOSH and OneSight where she traveled internationally to provide eye care to underserved populations. She has traveled to Mexico, Peru, and Nepal to provide exams and glasses to people living in poverty.

Dr. Gabby is fluent in Polish and can perform an eye exam in Spanish. She loves all aspects of Optometry but especially enjoys working with children and providing pediatric eye exams. Outside of Optometry, she enjoys competing in marathons, cooking, and spending time with her husband, Roman and their Welsh corgi, Stanley.


Legendary Customer Service

“I highly recommend Dr. Gabrielle. Every visit is professional and she makes you feel good after every visit. Her staff is qualified and you don’t have to wait long when you are there. They work with your insurance and address all your issues and concerns with compassion, respect and expertise.

My entire family visits. We come back yearly and feel great. Even if you order glasses or contacts she goes the extra mile to make sure they fit and you are happy with the product. Her prices are reasonable too. She is knowledgeable and courteous at all times.

I would not trust my eyes with anyone else.”

Legendary Customer Service

“ Dr. Szwajca-Drewniak has been my family’s optometrist for a few years now, and I’d highly recommend seeing her! Other than going in for our annual eye exams, we have seen her for help with a stye, a chalazion, eye allergy relief, dry eyes, and an exam after a minor chemical splash that I had unfortunately experienced. When I went in for this chemical splash accident, I felt extremely cared about -thankfully everything was okay with my eye! And if you are someone with amblyopia like myself, Dr.Szwajca-Drewniak will definitely remind you to keep that good eye extra safe with eye wear protection🤓I am definitely more conscious about wearing my glasses after that visit and our discussion about safety and eye health! In all, she is very professional, personable, and someone I trust recommending to friends, family, and others to see! "
