The expert eye care team at Midwest Dry Eye Center is pleased to announce the opening of their specialized clinic inside the Forsight Vision office, located at the Grove Medical Center in Long Grove.
Long Grove, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/29/2018 -- Dr. Todd Cohan, O.D., and Dr. Emily Pott, O.D., have satisfied many Long Grove patients with comprehensive vision care for over 10 years. Building upon their vast knowledge and experience, these compassionate health care providers designed a new, state-of-the-art dry eye center and informative website to benefit their patients.
"We look forward to providing dry eye treatment at this unique treatment facility. We provide our team with cutting-edge resources and modern equipment to precisely diagnose and provide relief for patients suffering from dry eye," says Dr. Cohan.
Dry eye syndrome is an increasingly common vision disorder. People may experience a range of ocular symptoms from mild to extreme, such as eye irritation, redness, stinging or burning, sandy/gritty feeling in the eye, blurred or fluctuating vision, and trouble with glare when driving at night. Wearing contact lenses may also become very difficult. These painful symptoms can interfere with one's quality of daily living, which makes dry eye a serious problem. The Midwest Dry Eye Center aims to become the area's leading resource for detecting dry eye symptoms and restoring comfortable vision to patients with this condition.
A variety of customized dry eye treatments is available at the Midwest Dry Eye Center. Dr. Cohan and Dr. Pott will perform a thorough eye exam to evaluate each individual's unique condition. They will also invest time and energy to understand the demands of each patient's lifestyle in order to recommend the most helpful treatment. Dry eye is treatable, and therapies include artificial tears, nutritional supplements (Omega 3), eye masks, topical prescription eye drops, punctal plugs, and medications such as Restasis® and Xiidra™. Specialty contact lenses may also offer relief for some patients.
Their focus is on offering the latest dry eye technologies, and the eye doctors at the Midwest Dry Eye Center also administer BlephEx®and LipiFlow®, modern procedures to alleviate painful dry eye. BlephEx is a simple and painless method of cleaning eyelids to remove bacteria and debris that can lead to dry eye. LipiFlow is the only FDA-approved treatment to open and unclog ocular oil glands, which facilitates the production of healthy tears.
Patients who are ready to say goodbye to dry eye are invited to book an appointment at Midwest Dry Eye Center, situated inside the Forsight Vision office at the Grove Medical Center, in Long Grove. The office is open on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, from 10am – 7pm, and on Wednesday, 8am – 2pm.
