Every Decoration Has a Story at This Illinois Practice


Faye Gamboa, OD, has created a carefully crafted, immersive experience for patients and customers at Wanderlust Eyecare in Northfield, Illinois. She was inspired by her love of traveling—wanderlusting, as she calls it, as well as going on mission trips to help those in need—and each piece of décor has also been placed with great consideration. “Each decoration has a story,” Dr. Gamboa said. There’s pottery from a mission trip in Morroco, teacups from Dr. Gamboa’s honeymoon in the Maldives and a collection of vintage cameras to represent a love of photography. There’s a large, canvas display in the optical space, which maps out where she’s traveled on her mission trips. Read more about Dr. Gamboa’s practice in this feature from Women In Optometry.
