Local Eye Doctor in Lake View

Eye health is very important when it comes to your overall physical well being, but it is too often overlooked. Your general practitioner may briefly examine your eyes to test their motor function and may also have you read from a chart to see if you have experienced any changes in vision, but these examinations are merely rudimentary. They may direct you to a specialist if something is amiss, but these sorts of tests cannot tell if you have any signs of underlying conditions. A comprehensive eye exam here with our local eye doctor at Chicago Vision Club in Lake View can help provide you with the eye care that you need.

There are many benefits to scheduling an annual eye exam, especially if you have a family medical history of eye disease, have vision impairment, or possess any of the risk factors that make eye complications more likely. Even if you do not possess any of the aforementioned qualities, annual eye exams are still recommended. Aside from eye disease, eye injury and infection are not uncommon conditions. Many of the symptoms associated with eye injury or infection are similar to those related to eye allergies, so any new or unexplainable symptoms should be looked at by a professional as soon as possible. When it comes to eye disease and more serious eye conditions, it is important that they are caught as early as possible. It is during the earlier stages that treatment is preferred since any damage done is minimal or perhaps even reversible. Oftentimes, without the help of an annual eye exam, you may not realize you have an eye disease until damage has already occurred. Vision health is also important here at Chicago Vision Club. Our local eye doctor, Dr. Mosqueda, can determine if you need corrective lenses or if your prescription needs to be updated.

Lincoln Park Chicago Eye Doctor

Emergency Eye Care Lincoln Park

At Chicago Vision Club, one of the most common reasons that patients seek immediate treatment from our Lincoln Park Chicago eye doctor is if they scratch their cornea. Corneal abrasions can be very uncomfortable and painful, and can even disrupt your vision. Fortunately, they usually have a fast healing time of about two to three days. There are many reasons why corneal abrasions occur. The cornea is the clear covering over the front part of your eye, and because it is so vulnerable to the outside world and whatever your eye comes into contact with, the structure of the cornea can easily be compromised and result in an abrasion.

Some examples of reasons for corneal abrasions include: something blowing into the eye, like dust or ash, a foreign body getting stuck under the eyelid, like sand or dirt, an injury while playing sports, wearing contact lenses that are not fitted properly, wearing contact lenses that have not been cleaned properly, rubbing your eyes, especially if you have the feeling that something is stuck in your eye, being poked in the eye, bacterial infections of the eye, and more. There are a few symptoms that are indicative of a corneal abrasion to look out for. These symptoms may include: pain in the eye, which can worsen when opening or closing the eye, the feeling that there is something stuck in your eye, constant tearing, redness of the eye, increased sensitivity to light, blurred vision in the affected eye, headache, and more. If you think you have scratched your cornea and the symptoms are uncomfortable or painful for you, simply schedule an appointment with our Lincoln Park Chicago eye doctor. We can then examine the current state of your eye, and can provide you with treatment to relieve your symptoms. We can also help determine the cause of your corneal abrasion so that you can better avoid the problem happening again in the future.
