Cataract surgery is a procedure to remove the lens of your eye and, in most cases, replace it with an artificial lens. Your cataract surgery will be performed by one of our Chicago based ophthalmologists. It is a very common and is generally a safe outpatient surgery that does not require an overnight stay in the hospital
Glaucoma leads to a degeneration of the optic nerve which reduces the communication between the eye and the brain resulting in loss of peripheral vision and potentially blindness. All of our eye doctors at Eye Care Ltd are trained to diagnose and treat all forms of glaucoma. Treatment options usually consist of daily eye drops but can also include laser treatment or surgery. Regular eye exams help to monitor the changes in your eyesight and to determine whether you may develop glaucoma. Once diagnosed, glaucoma can be controlled to help prevent vision loss
All diabetic eye exams at Eye Care Ltd are done by board certified eye physicians. Diabetes is a disease that affects small blood vessels throughout the body. Potential complications include reduced sensation of the hands and feet, kidney malfunction, and vision loss. All diabetics should have a complete diabetic eye exam at least once per year. The exam includes basic vision check as well as a dilated exam looking for signs of diabetic eye disease. Discussions include maintaining good sugar control as this has been shown to reduce the risk of developing vision loss.
Neuro-ophthalmology addresses the relationship between the eye and the brain. Dr. Andrew Berman is a fellowship trained neuro-ophthalmologist who provides comprehensive clinical care to a broad spectrum of patients. His is regarded as one of Chicago’s top eye doctors specializing in neuro-ophthalmology. He sees patients in both Skokie and Highland Park offices.
Age related macular degeneration or AMD results in loss of central vision. Smoking and family history are known risk factors. Patients with early signs typically do not suffer any noticeable vision loss. Most patients with early signs are encouraged to take multivitamins as well as follow their vision using an amsler grid. Complete exams should be performed every 6-9 months in order to monitor any changes. Our eye doctors will be able to treat and manage patients with AMD at both Skokie and Highland Park office locations.
