Many common ocular conditions are not immediately apparent and don’t have any obvious symptoms. The staff at Chicago Vision Club in the Lake View, Chicago community recognize this and recommend scheduling a yearly eye exam with your Optometrist.
Optometrists examine, diagnose, treat and manage diseases, injuries, and disorders of the visual system, the eye, and associated structures as well as identify related systemic conditions affecting the eye. Lake View Optometrists, Dr. Mosqueda and Dr. Rangel, agree that regular visits to the eye doctor not only ensures that you are wearing the right prescription for your eyewear, but it also gives our best Chicago Optometrists the opportunity to examine your eyes for eye diseases. At our Lake View optical facility, you will receive a comprehensive eye exam that looks for obvious and hidden conditions that might be affecting your visual health. This includes glaucoma screening and diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. Our Lake View doctors of optometry are the primary health care professionals for the eye.
Lake View Glaucoma Testing
Glaucoma is a disease of the optic nerve. The nerve connects the eye to the brain. If the nerve is damaged, transmission of information to the brain is affected resulting in eventual vision loss. During a comprehensive eye exam our Lake View Optometrists check for high pressure and take a magnified look at the optic nerve for any sign of change. At our Lake View optical facility to control glaucoma, your doctor will choose from three basic types of treatment. These include medicines that lower the intraocular pressure inside the eye, laser surgery, or filtration surgery. The goal of these treatments is to lower the pressure in the eye. Our Lake View Optometrists believe your eye health is as important to our staff as it is to you.
