Routine Eye Exams Chicago

Yearly eye exams are extremely important and should be included in everyone’s health care regime. If you have blurry vision, it can often be easily corrected with glasses, contacts, or laser vision correction. Your comprehensive eye exam will also check for eye diseases that may have no early symptoms but should still be treated to avoid loss of vision.

Your exam may include diagnostic tests including a visual field, wavefront, refraction and retinoscopy.

Please remember that during your exam, your eyes may need to be dilated. Dilation drops make your pupils bigger in order to get a better view of the internal structure of the eye. Dilation may last up to 36 hours and your eyes may become sensitive during this time. Sunglasses may be used to minimize glare and light sensitivity.

Glaucoma Treatment Chicago

Glaucoma is the name given to a group of eye diseases in which the optic nerve at the back of the eye is slowly destroyed. In most people, this damage is due to an increased pressure inside the eye. In other patients, the damage may be caused by poor blood supply to the vital optic nerve fibers, a weakness in the structure of the nerve, and/or a problem in the health of the nerve fibers themselves. It is important to routinely monitor your glaucoma to prevent complications.

What is Macular Degeneration?

Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss affecting more Americans than cataracts and glaucoma combined. Macular degeneration is caused by the deterioration of the central portion of the retina, the inside back layer of the eye that records the images we see and sends them via the optic nerve from the eye to the brain. The retina’s central portion, known as the macula, is responsible for focusing central vision in the eye, and it controls our ability to read, drive a car, recognize faces or colors, and see objects in fine detail.

Few people are aware that macular degeneration is an incurable eye disease and that it is the leading cause of vision loss for those aged 55 and older in the United States, affecting more than 10 million Americans. As people age, their chances for developing eye diseases increase dramatically.

Hello from Iraq. You performed surgery on my eyes in April of 2007 and I was called to Iraq in August 2007. I can see! You probably saved my life with the mission I have. It is beautiful not to be dependent on glasses. With the quality sun glasses we have, Oakley and ESS, my eyes are fully protected unlike those wearing prescription sunglasses. Thank you, ”
