What’s New At OCC
New Technology for Dry Eye
This year, we are proud to introduce a new treatment for our patients with persistent or recurring dry eye. Intense Pulsed Light therapy, or IPL, is a non-surgical, in-office procedure that uses pulses of light to generate heat that helps melt away secretions from the meibomian glands of the eyelids.
We have been named a Dry Eye Center of Excellence by the website Dry Eye News, joining other prestigious medical organizations such as Johns Hopkins Hospital, Duke University, and the Mayo Clinic. We are especially proud to be one of only two eye centers in Illinois to share this honor.
If you have persistent dry eye syndrome, you may want to look at our IPL Brochure.
We now offer Intacs corneal ring segments for keratoconus. These tiny rings stabilize the cornea by changing its structure from the cone shape associated with keratoconus back to a more natural dome shape, potentially deferring or eliminating the need for corneal transplantation. This outpatient surgical procedure is performed in our office by Intacs-certified ophthalmologist Dr. Robert Mack. More information is available in our office, and at the Intacs website for patients, IntacsForKeratoconus.com
Clinical Trial of collagen cross-linking for Keratoconus
We are now recruiting patients for a clinical trial, an experimental procedure known as corneal collagen crosslinking, also known as CXL. If you have been previously diagnosed with keratoconus, would like to see if you may be a candidate for joining our trial, or would like some more information please contact our office at 847-755-9393. You can also check out our entry on ClinicalTrials.gov.
