AN EYE EXAMINATION AT SKOWRON EYECARE 

Constant investment in the latest technology makes eye exams easier and more accurate fro 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 consistant 90% overall patient satisfaction rating. All patients receiving an eye examination will have as a minimum the following tests: 

1. Thorough Case History

Allergies, medications and systemic conditions such as Diabetes and Hypertension can affect the vision. Your current glasses or contact prescription is verified by digital lensometry. But most of all, WE LISTEN, as many condtions are diagnosed simply by taking a thorough case history.

2. Computerized Auto Refractor

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.

3. Tonometry "Glaucoma Test"

No more annoying air puff in the eye. New technolgies gently measure the pressure inside your eye. High eye pressure can lead to glaucoma, which can lead to permanent vision loss. 

4. Color Vision

Poor color vision is usually genetic, but aquired color vision loss can be the sign of neurological disese or optic nerve swelling.

5. Eye Focus and Tracking

Essential for efficient, comfortable reading which is so important for kids and learning

6. Peripheral Vision

Critical for safe Driving. Stroke disorders can reveal themselves with this test.

7. Depth Perception

Important for Hand-Eye Coordination. This evaluation tells us how the eyes work together, again very important with children.

8. Blood Pressure

High Blood Pressure and other conditions can cause permanent eye damage before any symptoms are realized. 

9. Retinal Evaluation 

We examine for Macular degeneration and other Retinal diseases in addition to Glaucoma and Optic Nerve disorders usually without dilation due to our Optos and OCT technology..

10. Refraction

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.

Dilation

Dilation is performed when indicated. But because of our committment in providing you with the latest diagnostic equipment, it is performed less frequently. If we feel dilation is needed to better assess your eye health, you will have the option to reschedule, as we know that dilation can be an inconvenience for some patients.

Wave Front Corneal Topographer (New patients and Contact Lens Exams)

Corneal Topography - Contact LensCorneal Map
By taking over a 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 unparalelled accuracy when predicting LASIK outcomes. Note the vertical red "bow tie" on the corneal topography on the right demonstrating two separate curves, revealing an astigmatism. 

       Slit Lamp                Corneal Map         
We have the means to video tape and record the eye with the slit lamp. Doctors will thoroughly explain their exam fidings with visuals, so you have a better understanding of their recommendations.
