Bergh-White Opticians is an independent, family-owned retail optical store that has been a part of the Springfield community since 1964.


Sue and Kenneth White purchased the corporation from Norman Bergh on January 4, 1989. Our mission is to provide patients with quality vision solutions and exceptional customer service.

Ken and Sue White are American Board Certified Opticians and Honored Fellows. Springfield has been their home for over forty years, and they remain active in the community through local church and schools, the Lincoln Land Community College Foundation, and the Chamber of Commerce. They both enjoy the arts and are supporters of the Hoogland Center for the Arts.



The staff at Bergh-White Opticians is grateful to the community of Springfield for its support, which has allowed the business to change and grow over the years.  Springfield isn’t just our place of business; Springfield is our home.
