Comprehensive Eye Examinations – Routine examinations are an important part of preventive health care and include measures of both visual function and eye health. Examinations include, but are not limited to, a patient history, visual acuity, color vision testing, peripheral vision screening, refraction, glaucoma testing and an eye health evaluation.

Contact Lens Fittings – Fittings begin with a discussion of how the patient uses his or her current contact lenses and how new technologies may fit into their lifestyle. A measurement of corneal curvature follows. The patient is then given a diagnostic pair of contact lenses and vision, comfort, and fit are evaluated.

Contact Lens Training Sessions – First time contact lens wearers are scheduled for a one hour training appointment that includes insertion, removal, and care of contact lenses. Proper training is critical to success wearing contact lenses and to excellent long term eye health.

Kindergarten Examinations – In 2008, Illinois passed important legislation requiring all students entering Kindergarten, or school for the first time in Illinois, to have an eye examination. Good vision is critical for successful learning and many children will not complain about poor vision because they may not realize what is normal and what is problematic.

Diabetic Eye Examinations
– Patients with diabetes should have an annual dilated eye exam. This examination includes not only a check for prescription changes but a check for signs of cataract or diabetic retinopathy. Diabetic retinopathy is a serious sight threatening complication of diabetes that does not have symptoms in its early stages. A report of the examination results will be sent to the patient’s primary care physician as well.
