In some cases, technology just allows for a more comfortable exam. For example, by using a digital retinal imaging system we are able to check the health of your eyes without need to dialate your eyes. Aside from just comfort though, we are able to see abnormalities in the eye more clearly and to even recognize other conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

Our mission at Central Illinois Family Eyecare is to create “patients for life”. Each day, our eye doctors and staff work hard to accomplish this goal by servicing the individual needs of every patient. We provide personalized service to each and every person we treat, and use the best technology available to provide a cutting-edge eye exam and eye care.
