Keep Pink Eye Out of Your Holiday Plans

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Dec 20, 2017 8:01:00 AM

Save Money on Your LASIK Surgery - 0% Financing Available!

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Dec 13, 2017 7:57:00 AM

Are you considering LASIK eye surgery? LASIK can improve your eyesight whether you have myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (the gradual loss of your eyes’ ability to focus on nearby objects), or astigmatism. LASIK is typically considered an elective surgery, which means insurance may not cover its cost. However, an important factor to consider when thinking about LASIK is the potential long-term savings. Over 20 years, LASIK could cost less than the total cost of purchasing and maintaining eyeglasses, contact lenses, and any necessary supplies. Not to mention you also get the convenience of improved vision without the need for hardware.

Cataracts generally occur as part of the natural aging process, and develop slowly over a number of years. As one of the most common surgical procedures in the United States, cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial one, called an intraocular lens implant (IOL). Illinois Eye Center uses the latest technology to assess each patient’s cataracts in order to help determine the best IOL to fit their lifestyle, needs and personality.
