Our constant investment in the latest technology makes eye exams easier and more accurate for everyone from toddlers to seniors, usually without the inconvenience of dilation. Over the past fifteen years, in three separate reviews by a leading consumer magazine, we were rated one of the best in Chicagoland with a consistent 92 % overall patient satifaction rating which is supported by our 5 star google rating.
Allergies, medications, and systemic conditions such as Diabetes and Hypertension can affect vision. Your current glasses or contact prescription is verified by digital lensometry. But most of all, WE LISTEN, as many conditions are diagnosed simply by taking a thorough case history.
This technology ensures the accuracy of your prescription in just seconds with no patient input. This is so beneficial for shy toddlers and our most senior citizens. An improper prescription can cause headaches, eyestrain and poor school performance.
By taking over 1000 readings on the cornea, Wavefront topography gives us the advantage of designing the most comfortable, safest contact lens possible. And most importantly, it provides unparalleled accuracy when predicting LASIK outcomes.
We have the means to videotape and record the eye with the slit lamp. Doctors will thoroughly explain their exam findings with visuals, so you have a better understanding of their recommendations.

Undilated Retinal views using the latest technology vs conventional
We examine for Cataracts, Macular degeneration and other Retinal diseases in addition to Glaucoma and Optic Nerve disorders usually without dilation. Dilation is performed when indicated. But because of our latest technology, Optos, we are able to take a 200 degree panoramic scan of the retina without dilation. If we feel dilation is needed to substantiate a diagnosis, you will have the option to reschedule, as we know that dilation can be an inconvenience for some patients.
The doctor verifies the readings of the autorefractor and makes any necessary final adjustments to come up with the most accurate prescription for your glasses and/or contact lenses.
