Glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and even dry eyes are no match for the professionals at Seven Bridges Eye Care. That's because the team of four, led by optometrist Dr. Douglas A. Azzaro, tackles a wealth of eye issues with services including peripheral-vision exams, color-vision tests, and sports vision evaluations, the last of which makes sure clients' eyes aren't actually tiny baseballs.
In 1930, Dr. Joseph Rosin and his brother, Maurice, opened a small shop on Cermak Road in Cicero. In 80 years, the shop has grown from a small family-run optometrist's office to a regionally renowned business that has sharpened the eyesight of celebrities such as Joe DiMaggio and Plácido Domingo and left its mark on the Chicago area by designing famous symbols such as Harry Caray's trademark glasses and the novelty shades that adorn the John Hancock Center. Today, Rosin Eyecare rests in the hands of the third generation of Rosins, ably helmed by brothers James and Jonathan, who continue a proud tradition of warm, personal service as they improve eyesight with high-tech LASIK and PRK treatments as well as stylish eyeglasses with scratch-resistant lenses. At 16 locations, including the newest office Long Grove, a staff of optometrists keeps optical orbs in high function with comprehensive exams, treating each patient's individual needs with products such as a contact-lens implant or a prescription safety eyewear.
At each AmeriLaser Center and AmeriCosmetic Surgery Center in Des Plaines and Downers Grove, experienced laser technicians and aestheticians, under a team of supervising doctors, take time to listen to each client?s skincare needs. Building this rapport helps the staffers to craft custom treatment plans that may include non-invasive procedures like laser hair removal, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermal fillers, as well as invasive procedures like liposuction, breast augmentation, face lifts and tummy tucks. Their most celebrated treatment may be noninvasive skin tightening, which uses bipolar radio frequencies and magnetic pulses to help to firm lax skin caused by aging or extreme weight loss, and it has earned ringing endorsements from The Biggest Loser winner Michael Ventrella, WWE pro wrestler Lisa Marie Varon, and a cherry tomato that sat untouched in Elvis Presley?s fridge for years.
With 20 years of optometry experience, Dr. Timothy J. Morrison keeps peepers furnished with high-quality lenses and frames. Customers can keep vision sharp with a bevy of lenses, from basic, single-vision plastic lenses ($105) to advanced sight correctors such as bifocals ($135), trifocals ($165), and progressive lenses ($275). Special-order lenses are also available for additional upcharges, and eyewear owners can further gussy up ocular enhancers with added features such as UV protection ($30), scratch-resistant coverings ($30), and eye-obscuring tint ($25).
Three decades of experience make Dr. David Loiterman the choice for patients looking to scare away spider veins, as well as for the Chicago Medical Society, for whom he has served as president. Specializing in circulation disorders, Dr. Loiterman has spent 26 years in sclerotherapy, laser therapy, and vascular surgery. He belongs to national medical boards and organizations and has taught universities and hospitals how to properly lure veins off legs through well-reasoned debate.
Dr. Foulkes of Foulkes Vision Institute, who has conducted more than 48,000 LASIK procedures, has also been listed as a nationwide leading surgeon in Newsweek and is known around the world for his research, lectures, and expertise. Foulkes Vision Institute is one of the few clinics in the nation that have the advanced Femto LDV Z6. The blade-free Z-LASIK surgeries with state-of-the-art lasers allow for both a more precise treatment and quicker recovery time.
