Eye Disease Management in Illinois

You deserve the best eye care because your vision is too important to risk. The medical eye care experts at Bard Optical are here to help treat a wide range of eye diseases or conditions.

The Value of Early Diagnostics at Bard Optical

Your eyes are delicate, and damage to them can cause irreversible vision issues. Many eye health conditions can worsen without symptoms, so scheduling regular comprehensive eye health exams is key. Our doctors use cutting edge diagnostic tools to get a total overview of your eyes to identify common conditions and preserve your vision with eye disease management plans.


This extremely common condition occurs when the eye’s natural lens starts to cloud, which can impair your vision and will cause blindness if left untreated. While eyeglasses can correct vision issues caused by cataracts, the only way to restore your eyesight completely is to remove them with cataract surgery. We actively co-manage these patients with their surgeons.

This common, yet uncomfortable condition occurs when your eyes produce low-quality tears, or simply not enough of them. Our Doctors can prescribe treatments to relieve you from your symptoms, such as dry, itchy, and irritated eyes, while taking the steps to address the root cause of your issue.

Diabetic Eye Disease

If left unmonitored, your eyes can be especially susceptible to the impact of diabetes. Our eye health exams look for early indicators of issues that are common for people with diabetes, like diabetic retinopathy (damage to blood vessels in the eye caused by diabetes). If our Doctors find anything out of the ordinary, we can create a customized plan to protect your vision.

Myopia Management

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is often diagnosed during childhood. Glasses can correct nearsightedness, but they won’t fix the underlying issue of myopia, which can lead to vision issues later in life. We can identify the signs of myopia and create a management plan for your child to slow and even halt its progression.
