Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision - many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our dry eye specialists takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Meet Our Long Grove Dry Eye Doctors:
Todd Cohan, O.D. received his Doctor of Optometry degree from the Illinois College of Optometrists (ICO) in 2001. Using his personalized approach to vision care as the foundation, he opened his own private practice, Forsight Vision, in 2007.
Dr. Cohan has always embraced new technologies to provide the most comprehensive vision care for his patients. Dr. Cohan has been treating patients with dry eye for more than 10 years. With the increased prevalence in dry eye due to our work environment, the importance of adding advanced diagnostic techniques and treatment procedures to manage dry eye became a priority to the practice.
This led Dr. Cohan to develop a unique treatment facility, the Midwest Dry Eye Center, that provides the team with cutting-edge resources and modern equipment to precisely diagnose and provide relief for patients suffering from dry eye.
Dr. Cohan has been invited nationally to speak to industry professionals about contact lens comfort for dry eye-related issues as well as about specialty multi-focal contact lens fitting. His passion for continuous learning drove him to become a founding member of a national study group, comprised of 12 leading optometrists across the U.S.
