Human vision is an ever-changing sensory ability that needs to be monitored and often corrected as we go through different stages of our lives. Eye exams by our Park Ridge eye doctor are an important part of the quality eye care that is available to the whole family at Chicago My Optical. We provide for the family’s complete vision needs, including comprehensive eye examinations, diagnosis of disease and recommended treatment, vision corrections in the form of eyeglasses and contact lenses, as well as optical shops stocked with the latest designer frames.
Our comprehensive eye exams begin with a conversation between you and our practice’s trained and experienced staff. Our Park Ridge eye doctor will discuss the state of your vision and ask about any problems you are experiencing with your eyes, we’ll also inquire about the general state of your health since many disorders in other parts of the body can affect the eyes and your vision, such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Our office is equipped with the latest in diagnostic equipment for the eye, which our staff uses to not only check your visual acuity but to also check for any developing eye diseases or conditions, including glaucoma, cataracts, diabetes retinopathy, macular degeneration, keratoconus and many others. Young children are encouraged to have an eye exam to check on how their eyes are developing and if there are any undiagnosed vision problems. Actually, eye exams are important for adolescents, adults and seniors as well.
Our Park Ridge eye doctor recommends eye exams on an annual basis for most members of the family. One reason is that our vision can change from one year to the next, either worsening or sometimes getting sharper, the exam will help to adjust your vision correction. More significant is the problem that many serious eye diseases progress overtime and have no noticeable symptoms during their early stages when treatment is more effective. Only a comprehensive eye examination can diagnose these developing serious conditions. The earlier they are treated the better the result will be. Make an appointment with one of our convenient locations for an eye exam so that we can help you care for your eyes.
