Our doctors are nationally recognized experts in their field. They are board certified in Ophthalmology and have performed retinal fellowships for advanced training in the diagnosis, treatment and surgery of the retina and vitreous. Because we are retinal specialists, our practice does not provide primary eye care services such as prescribing eyeglasses, evaluating or treating problems involving the front of the eye, or performing cataract and LASIK surgery.
Retinal Laser Treatment Chicago
read moreMost retinal laser treatments involve only mild discomfort. Depending on the type of treatment, different anesthetics are used. Many treatments require only anesthetic eye drops, which numb the eye. Some laser treatments, however, involve greater discomfort, and occasionally an anesthetic injection is required. If an injection is required, the patient goes home with a patch over the eye. The injection is administered in the eyelid next to the eye - not into the eye itself. Your doctor's decision about whether to use an anesthetic injection will depend on several factors, including how extensive the treatment will be.
Retinal Exam Chicago
read moreA retinal examination takes longer than most medical or general eye examinations. You can expect to be in our office for a minimum of two to three hours. When you first arrive, we'll ask you to fill out a detailed questionnaire about your medical history. Please remember to bring the names of any medications that you are taking - as well as the name, address and phone number of all physicians involved in your care. This information is essential. It's the only way we can ensure that we do not prescribe treatment that would conflict with your other medications.
