When many people think of a vision test, usually they think of reading letters on an eye chart. However, this is only a small part of what we do. Not only do we test your vision, but your eyes are examined both externally and internally. We look for cataracts and glaucoma, as well as many other conditions affecting your eyes. Our office is equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, the latest diagnostic software, and the latest innovations in eyewear and contact lenses.Our doctors can treat eye infections and eye diseases such as glaucoma. We can remove foreign bodies from the eye surfaces and also treat ocular disorders such as dry eyes and keratoconus. Many serious eye conditions have no symptoms. That's why it's important to have a thorough eye exam once a year.
Dr. Heimlich and Associates are proud to be the first eye care practice in Lake County, IL and in the Buffalo Grove area to have the latest technology in eye examinations - the Optomap Retinal Exam. The Panoramic 200 Retinal Imaging System(OPTOS) will produce the most comprehensive image of your retina (which is located at the back of the eye) and allow us to perform a more thorough exam than was previously possible. This will help us with early detection of any retinal abnormality. The result is that we can better prevent or reduce vision loss in our patients with a simple, quick and patient-friendly new examination. The Optomap exam requires no dilating drops, therefore no inconvenience associated with pupil dilation, blurred vision and light sensitivity afterwards.
Early diagnosis of Glaucoma is essential to the success of treatment. Dr Heimlich and Associates have the latest technology in the diagnosis and follow-up of patients who have glaucoma. The GDx VCC is the latest laser diagnostic test that allows us to measure the thickness of the nerve fiber layer of the retina. The nerve fiber layer is that part of the retina believed to be effected first in glaucoma. Therefore, the GDx VCC will help us diagnose glaucoma at an earlier stage than present subjective visual field testing. It is a quick and easy test that requires no pupil dilation or long lasting blurred vision and light sensitivity. It's just like having your picture taken, but without the flash.
As a part of the evaluation, diagnosis and management of Glaucoma and other vision diseases, the "Zeiss" Humphrey Visual Fields (HFA) is the gold standard of visual fields analysis. It is used to obtain the most reliable tests of sensi tivity in the vision.

Many patients choose contact lenses as an alternative to eyeglasses. Our office provides complete professional care, from the initial evaluation to follow-up visits. We carry the widest range of lenses - disposable, planned replacement, standard, and custom design (spherical, toric, and bifocal) in soft and gas permeable materials. Proper fitting technique, follow-up care and training are crucial to successful contact lens wear. We provide all of this at competitive prices.
Remember when you had only two choices in contact lenses? "Hard" (rigid gas permeable) lenses were best for crisp, clear vision, but were often irritating and uncomfortable. Soft lenses were the most comfortable, but often provided less-than-optimal vision. Now, a technological breakthrough makes having to choose a thing of the past.
SynergEyes® hybrid contact lenses offer the best of both worlds. The soft skirt offers all day comfort while the "breathable" rigid center keeps eyes healthy while providing crisp, clear vision…even at night.
SynergEyes® offers a wide variety of hybrid contact lenses to meet your visual needs. Whether you have Astigmatism, need vision correction for distance, close up, reading or to help correct keratoconus, SynergEyes® contact lenses will provide you with comfortable and crisp vision all day long.
We actively perform and co-manage certain refractive procedures such as "CRT" Corneal Refractive Therapy (a non-surgical corneal molding technique that can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses) and "LASIK" Laser Vision Correction. Ask our staff about these exciting advancements.
We make every effort to keep our charges and payment policies fair and equitable. Keeping appointments and prompt payments allow us to keep costs competitive. If you are unable to keep your appointment, we require 24 hours notice so your valuable appointment time can be given to another patient. Also for your convenience, we accept MasterCard, Visa, and Discover
