What can optometrists do?
Our optometrists recommend regular eye exams as part of your ongoing preventative health care starting at age 3.
The scope of medical and preventative care provided by optometrists is defined by state law. Your Schaumburg, Illinois optometrist can:
- Prescribe and fit any ophthalmic lenses, including contacts
- Remove foreign bodies from the eye or adjoining structures
- Diagnose and treat ocular disease, abnormality, or visual/muscular anomaly involving the eye or visual system
- Writer orders for hospital and lab tests
- Conduct visual screening, retinoscopy, tonometry, keratometry, phoria testing, biomicroscopy, ophthalmoscopy, subjective lens testing, and use electronic or computerized examination techniques with devices performing any of the listed functions
Optometrists in Illinois can also prescribe anti-inflammatory, anti-infective, or anti-glaucoma oral and topical medications, with some restrictions, plus topical anesthetics and other agents. Optometrists licensed in Illinois cannot currently use lasers or perform surgery. We are happy to refer you to an ophthalmologist for specialized care as required.
Eye doctors for routine care, injury & disease
Our Schaumburg optometrists see patients for all types of eye problems, including:
- Pink eye
