End Your Year On a Good Note with 20% Off LASIK

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Oct 28, 2020 9:00:00 AM

2020 go by in a blur? Was it because 2020 was the craziest year ever, or was it the result of eye problems, such as nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), or astigmatism?

The good news is that Illinois Eye Center has come up with a plan to make 2020 just a little better – we’ve decided to take 20% off the cost of your LASIK surgery when you schedule your free consultation by December 31, 2020.

Post-LASIK Dry Eye & How to Properly Apply Eye Drops

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Sep 30, 2020 9:00:00 AM

Dry Eye is a condition that occurs when your eyes are unable to produce enough tears to lubricate the eyes, which leaves them healthy and comfortable. Without this natural production of tears, your eyes are left irritated and without the tears they need to naturally function and stay healthy.

 

When you receive LASIK surgery, your eyes do become more vulnerable to Dry Eye Syndrome. Today, we will be discussing how LASIK can cause dry eye, and how to treat it if you happen to get the condition post-LASIK.

LASIK Gives Aaron a Clearer View of All He's Accomplished

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Sep 2, 2020 9:00:00 AM

At the end of a long day on the farm, Aaron likes to look out over the fields to see what he has accomplished. To appreciate the view fully, though, Aaron relies on contacts for sharper vision.

 

Like many of us, Aaron never liked wearing glasses, even as a kid. He was an active young man who likes to play golf and other sports; glasses always seemed to get in the way. Fortunately, his parents agreed to let him try contacts while he was in high school. Contacts never posed a problem for Aaron, so he ditched his glasses almost completely for several years.

Time for Back to School Eye Exams!

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Aug 12, 2020 9:00:00 AM

Kids take a lot of tests during their years at school, but they take one of the most important exams before they ever step foot in a school – their kindergarten vision exam. In fact, Illinois law requires that children entering kindergarten and kids enrolling in public, parochial, or private school for the first time undergo a comprehensive eye exam. The purpose of kindergarten eye exams is to give every child the best advantage possible when it comes to learning. Back to School Eye Exams ensure that a child’s vision has not changed over the years.

How Often Should You Get a New Pair of Glasses?

Posted by Illinois Eye Center on Jul 29, 2020 9:00:00 AM

Many of us stick with an old pair of glasses for years, especially if we think we can still see well with them.

Eye care professionals often recommend getting a new pair of glasses every one to three years as needed. Some people have to change their eyeglasses more often than do others. A variety of factors can affect how often you should get new eyewear.

Blurry vision is the most obvious sign that you need new glasses. Using an outdated prescription can make your eyes work harder to focus and this can lead to eyestrain, which can cause headaches. Vision changes typically happen very slowly, especially those associated with glaucoma, so you may not be aware that your vision has changed.
