See the Future of Vision Care!
Please join us on
Thursday, September 12 from 2:30-6:00 pm
as we celebrate the grand opening of our newly expanded Vision Clinic! We will have a press conference, ribbon cutting, interactive tour, and refreshments.
Over each of the past four years, the Center for Sight & Hearing Vision Clinic has experienced an average 20% growth in patient visits and that trend is expected to continue. In 2019, the CSH specialists helped over 2,400 people who have vision loss, most commonly from Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Diabetic Retinopathy, Glaucoma, and traumatic brain injury or stroke. While the majority of CSH patients are adults or seniors, approximately one-third are under the age of 18.
To meet increasing patient needs, CSH has expanded its Vision Clinic from 340 square feet to 2,200 square feet by remodeling underutilized space within the existing footprint of the facility. The newly renovated Vision Clinic now provides Low Vision services in one area of the building, making it easier for patients to navigate between providers and maintain privacy. The expansion includes three exam rooms, with one dedicated for Glaucoma testing, and three consultation offices, which will accommodate additional specialty Optometrists, our Low Vision Occupational Therapist, Clinical Counselor, and Certified Orientation & Mobility Instructors. Our expanded clinic will also have the latest ophthalmic equipment to better serve, detect and diagnose vision issues in infants, children, and hard-to-test patients.
According to the National Eye Institute, by 2030, the number of Americans with vision loss will increase by 70%. By expanding our clinic, we are ensuring that everyone in northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin has the quality and comprehensive continuum of care they need to continue doing the activities they love and live independently.
