Our Optometrists at Crusader Community Health provide a complete comprehensive eye examination including dilation. They treat eye infections, remove foreign bodies, evaluate Diabetic patients, give prescriptions for glasses and provide other primary eye care services such as screenings for diagnosis of cataracts and glaucoma.
All services are provided by Illinois-licensed optometrists. In addition, the department operates an optical dispensary for corrective lenses and eyeglass frames. Optical equipment includes an auto-refractor, a non-contact tachometer and instruments to make it easier to deliver services to those confined to wheelchairs.
The optical department offers a variety of frames and lenses to serve your optical needs including lined bifocals, no-line bifocals, fashion tints, transition tints, plastic and lighter weight thinner lenses. Frames and lenses start at $45 complete.
