Dear Eye See Ravenswood family,

It is with deep regret that I must inform you of the passing of a tenacious and inspiring soul,

 Dr Andrea Joy Stein.

A fellow colleague who was taken way too soon after a tough fight with cancer.

She was an ex-marine, deployed during Desert Storm, who even then had a passion for eye care as she came up with a way to have soldiers wear goggles under their helmets. Prior to her, no eye protection was used during the war. She was awarded two bronze medals, which none of her friends or family knew about, because she was so humble.

She loved to cook, loved her cats, could talk to anybody and get them to open up to her.

Since opening Eye See Ravenswood in 2007, caring for all of you brought her joy. As an active member of the Ravenswood community, she joined the Board of Directors of Ravenswood, Lincoln Square & Uptown Chamber of Commerce, and made lifelong friends by supporting many local businesses.


She was persistent in her perseverance through life's obstacles, through building her business, and through fighting her cancer. She was taken too soon by this horrendous disease. She will truly be missed.

In her memory, I encourage you to donate to...

American Cancer Society

Or

My team and I are here for you should you have any further questions.

Warm regards,

Dr. Joanna Slusky
