Optometrists, Gloria Docherty, OD and Pat Hart, OD provide comprehensive eye exams in Orland Park including examination of the external and internal parts of your eyes with specialized scopes to ensure their continued health. If needed or desired, a dilated eye exam, where eye drops are used to enlarge the pupil (black portion) and allow a better view of the retina and lens, can be performed. With a comprehensive eye examination , disorders such as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and other eye disease might be observed here.
Dr. Docherty and Dr. Hart will review your current health history form and discuss any difficulties you might be having with your eyes or sight.
The pressure inside the eye is measured by an air puff tonometer to help determine your risk of developing glaucoma. Peripheral vision is evaluated with a computerized autoperimeter which assists in ruling out disorders of the visual system. Binocular vision testing is performed to test your eye coordination and make sure your eyes work well together. Most problems found here can be fixed with prescription glasses or vision training.
Precise measurements are taken to determine the best prescription for you. Dr. Docherty and Dr. Hart will recheck your prescription in several ways to make sure you achieve the best level of vision possible.
An evaluation of the exam findings will be discussed, along with approriate recommendations to keep your eyes healthy and your vision sharp. We will work together to determine what your visual goals are and what is the best way to help you achieve them. If a prescription is necessary, possible remedies might include glasses, contact lenses, laser vision correction or eye exercises.

If a decision is made to move forward, most of your necessary visits will be conveniently located at our office in Orland Park.
As part of your pre-op exam, you will be dilated and additional tests will be performed to evaluate ocular health and prescription. We will schedule your lasik or PRK appointment with Dr. Colman Kraff in Chicago. You will usually need to be downtown for two visits; the day of the procedure and the following day. For your convenience, Kraff Eye Institute offers a choice of parking validation, transportation, or an overnight stay at a nearby hotel. After that, we normally see patients for post-op care at Orland EYE at one week, one month, three months and six months. All of your pre-op and post-op care is included with the cost of your lasik procedure. Very affordable financing options are available through Care Credit.
Orland Park optometrists Gloria Docherty and Patricia Hart recommend Macular Pigment Optical Density testing as an optional and valuable test for all patients 40 years of age and over. The test measures the density of the pigment cells in the macula which is a factor in developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a leading cause of blindness in the United States. Evaluation of the findings and other risk factors will be discussed. Low scores may benefit by diet changes and nutritional supplements.
Testing for dryness begins with a thorough evaluation of the cornea with a microscope. Then, a water based dye is added to your tears to highlight damage from lack of sufficient wetting. In addition, the length of time your tears stay on the corneal surface is recorded and compared against normal ranges. Lastly, a test strip is placed along the lower eyelid to measure tear volume.
The above findings will be discussed along with appropriate remedies. These might include artificial tears, RX eyedrops, nutraceuticals, and/or punctal occlusion with silicone.
