Barry L. Seiller, 83, of Lake Forest, passed away unexpectedly on July 31, 2022. Barry was born on June 7, 1939 in Chicago and was a graduate of Senn High School. He then graduated from Loyola Stritch School of Medicine in 1964 with Cum Laude honors. Following graduation, he completed his medical residency and internship at Cook County Hospital where he met the love of his life, Karin. They married on December 22, 1963.

Throughout his professional career, Barry pursued achievements in vision to help others use their vision to pursue their achievements. Through the tremendous support of his wife, they founded the Eye Care Center of Lake County in 1968, an ophthalmology practice that grew to three offices and a staff of 32 that served 18,000 patients per year. In 2017, he retired from patient care and sold the practice after 44 years.

Barry was an acclaimed international expert and inventor in the field of vision training and its application to athletic performance, reading disabilities, and rehabilitation of traumatic brain injuries. He was co-Inventor in 2001 of the Vizual Edge Performance Trainer computerized program for testing and training visual motor function used worldwide by professional, Olympic, college teams, rehabilitation hospitals, optometrists. In 1993, Barry earned an Executive MBA from Harvard Business School.

Barry was an avid sports fanatic and season ticket holder of the Bears, Blackhawks, and Bulls for decades. He was a dedicated community volunteer and leader, starting multiple organizations including the Lake County Races and the Lake Forest Lake Bluff Running Club.
What he was most proud of, however, was his family and his friends. Barry is survived by his wife, Karin, his sons Steven (Cathy), Brian (Rita) and Jon (Tracey), along with nephews David (late Debbie) and Jason (Janice). He was the proud grandfather of Sophia, Ally, Skyler, Kayla and Harper. He joins his late parents Sam and Perle and brother, Stuart (Barbara).
