Dry Eye Specialists
Over 59 million people in the United States suffer from dry eye syndrome. Dry eye is the term used to describe eyes that either do not produce enough tears or have abnormalities in the tear film composition. The dry eye specialists at Davis Eyecare provide an array of treatment options to combat the symptoms.
Myopia (nearsightedness) is a condition that is associated with blurred vision at distance although vision at near is clear. At Davis EyeCare we have myopia prevention options that will limit the progression of myopia as well as develop a program that you are most comfortable with.
COMPREHENSIVE EYE EXAMS
Regular eye exams are important, even if your current vision is sharp. Eye exams at every age and life stage can help keep your vision strong. Improving your eyesight is important—about 11 million Americans over age 12 need vision correction—but it’s just one of the reasons to get your eyes examined. Regular eye exams are also an important part of finding eye diseases early and preserving your vision.
Our comprehensive eye exams include a number of tests to assess your overall eye health. At Davis EyeCare Associates in Oak Lawn, IL, we use top-of-the-line medical equipment and cutting-edge technologies that enable us to provide you with the best quality of care that you and your family deserve.
keratoconus treatment & care
Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease in which the normally round cornea thins and begins to bulge into a cone-like shape. This cone shape deflects light as it enters the eye on its way to the light-sensitive retina, causing distorted vision. Tiny fibers of protein in the eye called collagen help hold the cornea in place and keep it from bulging. When these fibers become weak, they cannot hold the shape and the cornea becomes progressively more cone shaped.
PEDIATRIC VISION & THERAPY
Parents want to provide the best conditions for their child’s visual development. For without good vision, a child may quietly lose an important tool to learn and grow. What that means is that a child may “fall behind” or have trouble staying on track due to undetected vision problems. It is possible that a teacher may think your child has a learning disability when the problem may be vision related.
color vision deficiency
If you suffer from color vision deficiency, you probably know this all too well. However, for those that don’t struggle with this condition it causes problems with communication and safety. How will you know when to stop or go if you can’t tell what color the traffic light is? That’s why correct color identification is so very important and why we strive to help patients who are suffering from color vision deficiency.
contact lens specialist
As one of the largest contact lens practices in the United States we provide consultation services to major lens manufacturers and typically receive new products before they are available to eyecare providers. This allows us to provide you with the most up-to-date materials and designs as well as to keep you informed of the latest advances in eye care technology at a affordable cost.
Computer Vision Syndrome is an increasingly common condition as digital devices become more ingrained into our daily lives. Computer vision syndrome (CVS) results from extended exposure to digital screens such as computers, smartphones, tablets and televisions. A combination of factors contribute to the effect these devices have on our eyes.
Vitamin A, C and E. Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Vitamin B2 are all important vitamins for the eyes. Vitamin Supplements can provide your body with the ingredients that are difficult to obtain in our fast paced lifestyles. There are certain eye vitamins we recommend, such as EyePromise Restore, and EZ Tears for dry eye. Ask Davis EyeCare about these health additives.
emergency eye care
Davis Eye Care are equipped to properly treat the eye emergency with our start of the art technology while the ER may misdiagnose the problem. When an eye injury occurs, it is important to try washing the eye with a sterile solution. It is important to remember not to rub your eye as you risk spreading infectious bacteria to the eye.
