Dear valued patients,

 

Per CDC recommendations and in the best interest of our patients we have postponed all routine eye care for the next 14 days. If it has not already been rescheduled, we will be calling you. Given the expected demand for post-quarantine care we recommend you schedule now if you are able.

 

Urgent issues are still being addressed, please call us at 630-553-6166 if you have an issue that needs to be addressed, this number is monitored 24 hours a day.

 

Medication, contact lens, and eyeglasses are being refilled and delivered. If you need any of these things please call us at the above number during business hours and press 5 for medication concerns, 4 for glasses and contacts.

 

Existing patients, if you have broken your glasses or run out of contacts please reach out, issues can often be addressed based on information from your previous visit.

 

Delivery of materials is available curbside, to contact us for curb-side pickups please call (630) 538-6571 (only monitored during open hours).

 

Business hours are currently modified to Monday – Friday 10am-3pm. Closed Saturday and Sunday. Given the constantly changing nature of the situation, we strongly encourage you to call the clinic before driving.

 

We thank you for your understanding in this difficult time, and due to the fluidity of the situation we will continue to provide up to date information via our website.

 

Stay Healthy,

The Brenart Eye Clinic Team

Contact lens exams include tests that are not always performed in regular eye exams, so be sure to let us know when scheduling your exam if you are considering contact lenses. That allows us to schedule the extra time required for contact lens fitting or prescription updates.

Scheduling your general exam and your contact lens exam for the same visit will save you time and money. Performing these exams at different locations or with different optometrist can lead to repeated tests and additional fees.

Choosing the best lens for your eyes

Our contact lens exams include questions about your lifestyle and discussions about the various options available to you. For example, there are a variety of contact lenses on the market that can be changed at different frequencies (daily, weekly, or monthly). Rigid gas permeable (RGP or GP) contact lenses are an option that often provide sharper vision than traditional soft lenses. Bifocal contact lenses are an option to correct vision issues that develop with age (presbyopia). So is monovision, which is a special technique where one eye corrects for distance vision and the other eye corrects for near vision.
