SPOTLIGHT ON TOP COSMETIC DOCTORS S P E C I A L A D V E RT I S I N G S E C T I O N Halsted Eye Boutique Dr. Joanna Slusky What differentiates your practice from similar services? We are a "No Puff" and "No Drop" practice. Our Optomap® Retinal Exam gives me an ultra-wide view of the eye. It's quick, painless, and requires no dilating drops. Taking this test can lead to early detection of glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, and even cancer. What trends are you seeing in your area of practice that you're excited about? Digital eye strain, computer vision syndrome, and dry eyes are becoming an epidemic. Occupational anti-fatigue, blue light-blocking lenses are a new trend for digital device users, even for those who have never worn glasses before. These lenses are designed to alleviate the pain of "staring" at digital devices all day. How can people balance health with a busy and stressful schedule? Reduce eye strain by incorporating the 20/20/20 rule while working on the computer: Every 20 minutes, look 20 feet away for 20 seconds. Alleviate dry eye by drinking 8-plus glasses of water per day and adding prescription-strength Omega-3 supplements to your diet. Prevent sun damage and cataracts by wearing UV-blocking polarized sunglasses or transition lenses. What are best practices that people can adopt as we look into the new year? Starting at age 3, everyone should have a full eye health and vision examination every year. Get checked for early signs of glaucoma and macular degeneration, which can painlessly and permanently damage eyes if left unmanaged. Additionally, switch to one-day contact lenses and, to rest your eyes, wear your glasses as least 3 days per week. SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION: 2852 N. Halsted St. Chicago, IL 60657 773-549-1111 " Educating patients about their eye health is just as important to me as treating and correcting their vision. My opticians and I never settle for anything less than excellence. " Dr. Joanna Slusky and her team ask every patient, "How can we improve your life?" And they mean it: Offering quality optometric care for both children and adults, Dr. Joanna Slusky specializes in the treatment of dry eye and allergies while focusing on specialty contact lenses and computer vision syndrome. Services include comprehensive eye exams, medical visits, diabetic eye checkups, and LASIK consultations in a state-of- the-art, personalized boutique experience.
