Preserve Your Vision For Longer

What Does "Low Vision" Mean?

Low vision refers to vision loss that can’t be corrected with standard glasses, contact lenses or surgery. However, it isn't considered blindness as limited eyesight remains. Symptoms typically include blind spots, poor night vision and blurred vision. Low vision is commonly caused by age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma and diabetes.

Fortunately, people with low vision can continue living full and meaningful lives with the help of low vision aids and devices.

I had an exceptional experience with Dr. Neukirch. He is a true professional and treated us with war... mth and friendliness. Dr. Neukirch is a very skilled practitioner, he is very concise and methodical. Also, the office staff is very affable, and they always greet me with a smile. His office is very clean and very well maintained. Therefore, it is a very buoyant environment, and I am very satisfied with the result for my Ortho-K lenses! I had a very positive experience there, so I highly recommend Dr. Neukirch's practice. I would like to give him more than 5 stars, thank you very much!!

This has been my place for eye exams and glasses for more than 10 years. Dr. Neukirch is thorough in... his examinations, has a wonderful and kind disposition, and uses the latest technology. The staff is always courteous. They have a pretty nice selection of frames. Make sure you say hi to Leo, the cutest member of the team!

I've been going here for a couple of years and I love it! The optometrist did a thorough job and ans... wered all my questions. The service people in front were pleasant, knowledgeable, and professional, even when dealing with a nightmare customer (rude, verbally abusive, and threatened to leave nasty reviews).

Dr. DalPorto is terrific! I am a pathological myope who had exclusively seen a pediatric ophthalmolo... gist for all of his corrective lens needs since childhood, but it was long past time to stop seeing him. I selected Carillon after critically examining Google Reviews for eye clinics near me and was not disappointed. An informative display in the lobby about myopia instantly made me feel welcome. Dr. DalPorto is the model doctor: superbly affable, extremely thorough, and caring toward the patient's holistic well-being, not only optical health. I was delighted to receive my new prescription here and the great news that my eyesight - if corrected - is strong enough to pass vision screening tests to drive. She was also the first to tell me that my vision would be even better were I to switch to rigid contact lenses. If you're in the Chicagoland area and in need of such services, I wouldn't go anywhere but here.

They also have an office dog! 10/10 I would highly recommend!
