Give Your Eyes the Care They Deserve

Eye Disease Management Includes:

  • Comprehensive eye exam

    Comprehensive eye exams are critical in catching sight-robbing eye diseases that typically don’t show early symptoms.

  • Diagnostic screening

    Certain changes in your eyes can indicate eye conditions. Our optometrists can diagnose the disease and determine the cause of these changes.

  • Treatments and surgeries

    We provide a wide range of treatments, including prescription eye drops and other medication. If needed, we'll refer you to the right specialist for eye surgery.

  • After care and follow-up

    We provide follow-up exams and after-care treatments to help you manage your symptoms and safeguard your vision.


What Are the 4 Most Common Eye Diseases?

  • Diabetic Retinopathy

    If you have diabetes, you should be aware of the risk of diabetic retinopathy. Elevated blood sugar can cause blood vessels in the eye to become inflamed or swell. In the early stages, you may not notice symptoms, but advanced diabetic retinopathy can cause blurred vision or eye inflammation.

    Diabetic retinopathy treatment includes:

    • Prescription medication
    • Laser surgeries
    • Anti-VEGF and steroid injections
    • Vitrectomy
  • Glaucoma

    Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness and often doesn’t show early symptoms. High pressure inside the eye causes glaucoma, and the purpose of glaucoma management is to reduce intraocular pressure.

    Glaucoma treatments include:

    • Prescription eye drops or medications
    • Laser procedures
    • Filtration surgery
    • Drainage tubes
    • Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS)
  • Cataracts

    Cataracts are cloudy formations on the eye lens. They can make your vision blurry and distorted. To restore normal vision, an optometrist will recommend cataract surgery, which involves replacing the cloudy lens with an artificial intraocular lens.

  • Macular Degeneration

    Macular degeneration, or AMD, occurs when the macula or the central part of the retina deteriorates. This results in blurred and distorted vision.

    There are two types of AMD: Dry AMD and Wet AMD.

    Although there isn’t a treatment for dry AMD, lifestyle changes and specific supplements can help prevent further vision deterioration.

    Wet AMD treatments include:

    • Photodynamic therapy
    • Anti-VEGF injections
    • Laser photocoagulation

Distorted or Blurred Vision? Have a family history of serious eye diseases?

Schedule an eye exam at Forzley Eye Clinic in Lemont. Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve eye health and prevent vision loss.

Forzley Eye Clinic is awesome. From the great staff to the professional Doctors. Dr. Flora was very ... helpful with getting me in right away today when I ended up having an eyelash stuck in my eye causing major pain and irritation. He was quick to figure out the problem and the whole process was quick and painless. I recommend Forzley to anyone who is looking for an eye doctor.

Dr. Forzley has been my eye provider since the year he hung out his shingle and had an office on Sta... te Street. He is one of the most thoughtful and caring providers I have worked with. He listens, makes great recommendations and follows up. I have been so happy being one of his patients that I brought in my own kids to see him and now my husband is a patient. he is a gem!!!!

After waking up with an eye infection last Saturday, I stopped by Forzley Eye Clinic to see if they ... could help me. They readily worked me into their schedule, and I left with a prescription for the infection. Everyone was both professional and kind. Much appreciated!

My wife and I left Target Optical for Forzley Eye Clinic and couldn’t be happier. Dr. Flora was fr... iendly, professional, and efficient. The optician Jess offered excellent customer service and was very helpful in selecting glasses for us to try on. Highly recommend this place.

Dr. Forzley is one of the best Doctors I have ever dealt with in both to his medical skill but most ... importantly his relationship with his patients. He is truly a good man who cares about the people he attends to. He listens and explains everything to the patient so you leave knowing any issues or problems. I recently took my elderly father to see him due to a sudden loss of vision and the entire staff could not have been better. Not only did they take care of him but Dr. Forzley called me on a Sunday just to follow up and make sure everything was okay. Not many Doctors do that on their days off. This is a man who should be teaching his profession to the future Doctors out there. I could not be more happy with Dr. Forzley and his entire staff.

Have been seeing Dr Forzely for many years. His office staff is friendly but very professional at al... l times. They have all the answers your questions. Dr. Forzely is so helpful and is experienced with all optical problems you may have. He addresses any of your concerns competently and concisely. With all the COVID practices now, the office has adapted many safety procedures to make you feel very secure. Just can't praise Dr. Forzely and his office enough. I recommend him highly. You'll be happy if you have him and his team assisting you. Gloria Slomiany.

Learning about your family’s medical history can provide important clues regarding your predisposition to certain eye diseases and vision problems.

How to prevent eye diseases?

Adopting a healthy lifestyle and getting regular eye exams can improve your chances of maintaining clear vision and eye health.

Make sure to:

  • Avoid smoking
  • Maintain healthy blood sugar levels if you have diabetes
  • Wear sunglasses that offer 100 UV protection
  • Have regular eye exams
What are the symptoms of serious eye problems?

Although certain eye diseases show specific symptoms, the signs vary according to the condition. Keep in mind that some eye diseases, such as glaucoma, often don’t show early symptoms—which is why it's important to get regular eye exams.

  • Blurry or double vision
