Specialty Care of the Eyes and Trendy Frames at Rockford Family Eyecare
Rockford Family Eyecare’s husband and wife team, Ted and Carrie Sees, are proud to continue to provide high quality, full-scope as well as specialty eyecare to Rockford and surrounding commu- nities. They were honored to receive Rockford Chamber of Com- merce’s “2016 New Business of the Year” award and were featured in Invision Magazine as one of America’s Finest Optical Retailers.
Although the practice provides general eyecare exams, the Sees are especially interested in helping with the under-treated problem of dry eyes. Without relying solely on arti cial tears, their Dry Eye Center uses diagnostic instruments to detect what type
of disease is af icting patients. Therapies range from nutrition advice, medication, tear savers, dry eye contact lenses, pore cleansing to lifestyle counseling. Treatment may include the MiBo Thermo o system. Other treatments include BlephEx – an instrument that helps clean persistent bacteria off the eyelids. Rockford Family Eyecare also specializes in Orthokeratology using contact lenses/corneal molds at night to temporarily reshape the cornea. The goal is to correct nearsightedness and serve as an alternative
to wearing eyeglasses or con- tact lenses during the day. Although Orthokeratology is FDA approved for near- sighted prescriptions only,
the retainers can be customized for other types of prescriptions including farsightedness, astigmatism and even bifocals.
Rockford Family Eyecare carries many high quality frame lines with trendy and artistic styles and shapes. They carry the new “State Optical” frame line, made entirely in the USA. A variety of safety glasses, prescription swim goggles and a large selection of unique sunglasses are also available.
