Dr. Jordan Jones and his duo of fashion-conscious opticians, Gregory and Joseph Winjum, foster ocular health with comprehensive eye exams, and if necessary, outfit patients with the proper prescription contact lenses and glasses. Both the Chicago and Orland Park locations feature shelves neatly stocked with designer frames from brands such as Paul Smith, Tom Ford, Oliver Peoples, ic! berlin, and Prada. The wide selection of eyeglasses ensures that clients can find the appropriate styles to suit their face shapes, lifestyles, and superhero alter egos.
Patients at Orland Dental Care feast their eyes on TVs with Netflix access as their teeth soak up the attention of expert staff and highly trained doctors. A spectrum of services spruces up chompers as technicians use LED whitening to reduce discoloration or take impressions of teeth for Invisalign molds. In addition to cosmetic dentistry, Orland Dental Care also soothes toothaches and seals cavities to keep mouths strong before county swearing bees.
The eye doctors at Family Eye Physicians, which include an ophthalmologist with a resume that lists advanced training in pediatric eye care a position as chief resident of John Stroger Hospital, employ the latest technology to perform preventative and restorative services. To diagnose eye issues, they create three-dimensional images with high-resolution optical coherence tomography and use a technique called fluorescein angiography, in which a fluorescent dye is injected into the arm to highlight ocular abnormalities, such as deposits beneath the retina or blood vessel patterns that resemble Elvis. The highly trained team can improve cataract patients' vision at all distances via intraocular lens implants, or make glasses and contacts obsolete with microkeratome or bladeless LASIK vision-correction surgery.
The excitement of pregnancy should be shared with more than just the mother and father, which is why My Baby Bump 3D / 4D Ultrasound’s technician, Mary, decided to establish the facility. With three decades of experience performing ultrasounds, Mary has seen the joy a couple experiences as they meet their baby for the first time. But she recognized that traditional medical ultrasounds never gave the parents or their friends and family a chance to bond with the baby, which is why she encourages parents to invite their loved ones along to see the baby and listen to its heartbeat.
Mary gives her clients plenty of time to admire their little ones as she glides an advanced GE Voluson 730 ultrasound-imaging system across bellies, capturing realistic 3-D and 4-D images of the unborn child moving around. And to enhance each bonding experience, the traditional sepia-colored image on the machine can be transformed into blue or pink tones to represent the gender of the baby. Mary is sometimes even able to pick out which family traits the baby possesses, such as an aquiline nose or a beautiful singing voice.
Dr. Elizabeth Reiser-Loeber leads the tooth-savvy team at Orland Smiles in a mission to clean teeth and promote oral health above and below the gum line. To kick off the roughly 30-minute visit, dental assistant Starlette helps the patient settle into a chair and select his or her entertainment from an array of magazines, DVDs, or invisibly caged mimes. Orland Smiles' hygienist Krystyna then polishes chompers to a gleam, eradicates tartar build-up, and administers two bitewing x-rays, before Dr. Reiser begins the oral exam. The dental doyen wields the DIAGNOdent laser to detect hidden cavities and stashes of walnuts.
In the Old World, castles were places to live, govern, and seek shelter. Today, there are still places designed to keep the outside world at bay, but rather than standing as bastions of military defense, they serve as oases of relaxation, fitness, and fun. Riviera Country Club and Sports Center is one such getaway. There, members can explore a vast campus of athletic and recreation amenities including indoor and outdoor pools, a full gym, and a spa. Though the club’s organizers leave plenty of time for individuals to play in each space, they also host organized events, including regular group fitness classes such as boot camp, kickboxing, and Latin dance. They maintain a vast array of sports courts, as well, allowing members to feed their competitive sides in basketball, tennis, and racquetball arenas. As adults young and old sweat during their chosen forms of play, staffers help tykes explore their creativity in a play space known as the Sandbox, which combines education, arts and crafts, and computers to produce a secret army of glitter robots.
