Walgreens is experimenting with an in-store vision clinic in Chicago.

Licensed optometrists and opticians are providing eye examinations at a flagship store on Michigan Avenue, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The vision professionals work for a third party, but Walgreens is not providing details on the firm, according to the newspaper.

The clinic, located on the second floor of the store, opened last month. It's a pilot project, and based on its results, the drugstore chain will decide whether to open vision clinics in additional stores.
