At the Eye Specialists of Illinois in Park Ridge, IL, our team treats a variety of conditions to help preserve your vision. We will perform an eye exam to determine a personalized treatment that is designed to prevent further damage and improve your eyesight. Before paying us a visit, learn more about the conditions that we treat below:
Cataracts can cause the lens of the eye to become cloudy. This condition does not occur suddenly, but rather takes a long time to fully develop. While this condition is common, it is also treatable. Our eye doctor will perform a diagnosis and then perform surgery. This is an outpatient procedure, so you will be able to go home once the surgery is complete.
There are a variety of eye allergies, which can cause itchy and red eyes. These symptoms can interfere with your work day and cause you to rub your eyes frequently. Our eye doctor can prescribe medication that will help alleviate your discomfort. We recommend to visit us today if over-the-counter medication is not effective for you.
Astigmatism occurs when your cornea or lens is an irregular shape and causes objects to appear distorted or blurry. We will examine your eyes and determine which treatment would be best for your condition. Astigmatism is typically treated with glasses, contact lenses, or LASIK surgery.
Myopia is also known as nearsighted and most people are diagnosed with the condition before they turn 20 years old. Those with myopia can see objects clearly close up, however, items that are far away may not be as clear. While most people with the condition use glasses or contact lenses to improve their vision, our doctors may decide that surgery is required. We will also monitor your eyes for degenerative myopia, which can lead to legal blindness.
