Our Oak Park optometrist, Dr. Tan, can make sure you get the high quality of medical optometry, corrective lenses and primary care.
Our Oak Park optometry services include:
Eye Function Testing - We can observe how well your eyes work, both individually and together, in cooperation with the brain to process and interpret images. Our examination methods can identify strabismus, "lazy eye" (amblyopia), convergence, focus and eye teaming issues that might require corrective lenses or vision therapy.
Eye Health Evaluations - We strongly recommend annual or bi-annual eye health evaluations so any diseases or disorders can be detected as early as possible. Slit lamp testing enables us to view the front of the eye under magnification, while retinal examination through dilated pupils lets us view the the inner eye in detail.
Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Diseases - Our Oak Park optometrist can detect eye diseases in their early stages, allowing for the soonest possible treatment. We can diagnose glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration and a wide range of retinal disorders. Treatment recommendations may include oral or injected medications, lifestyle counseling and referrals for eye surgery.
Diabetic Eye Exams - Diabetes can damage the blood vessels in the eye, producing permanent vision loss. The good news is that regular diabetic eye exams can monitor your condition you can keep it under control.
Pediatric Eye Care - Children as young as 6 months of age can and should have their eye health and function evaluated. Any problems need to be resolved early so the eyes and brain can develop together to provide normal vision. School-age children need testing for refractive errors that might impair their ability to learn and excel.
Visual Acuity Testing - Eye charts allow us to determine how accurately you can see without strain at various distances. If you have a refractive error such as hyperopia or myopia, we can use a device called a phoropter to calculate your exact vision correction prescription.
Contact Lens Exams and Fittings - Contact lenses require additional measurement techniques such as corneal topography. This ensures a comfortable fit and the best possible results.
Scleral Lenses - We can provide fitting for Scleral lenses, which fit over irregular corneas due to diseases like kerataconus, or other problems like dry eye. To learn more, schedule an appointment with Dr. Tan.
LASIK Pre-operative & Post-operative Care - If you opt for LASIK refractive eye surgery, our Oak Park optometry center can provide referrals to excellent surgeons, pre-operative preparations and post-operative follow-up care.
