THANKS!!!!!
I would like to take a brief moment and thank all of our patients, my wonderful staff, and my helpful healthcare colleagues for the past three years since I came to Chicago! The number of active patients at our office has nearly doubled, we have been able the acquire all of the latest, top-of-the line ophthalmic diagnostic and testing instruments. Last but not least, I now have a phenomenal network of eyecare specialists in place that I have gotten to know personally and can truly trust with my patients’ care.
 
2014 already looks to be an exciting year. We are presently searching for yet another staff member, and I have began the process of finding the next doctor to bring on board. The specialty contact lens practice within the office has also been picking up steam lately. There will be plenty more info in early 2014 regarding some exciting options for these advanced lenses, so stay tuned.
I will now share the opening letter of our latest newsletter that our patients receive three times a year for those readers whom do not receive our mailings:
 

Letter from Dr. Neukirch

While the city has been busy upgrading Waukegan Road, we have been even busier upgrading our office. It certainly has been an exciting past few months.
 
Corneal Topography
This fall Carillon Vision Care gained a new state-of-the-art Corneal Topographer, an instrument that allows us to fit and design the most advanced custom lenses for patients. It is especially useful for patients with high astigmatism that could not otherwise wear conventional contact lenses. Also, the newly implemented Optikam digital spectacle fitting system allows the most precise measurements when fitting Progressive Bifocal/Trifocal prescription glasses.


 

We are pleased to have added a new line of designer eyewear by Tom Ford, which features styles that are both contemporary and classic. A recently upgraded computer server and network continues to keep your medical data safe, and we can access it even faster. Last but not least, I believe genetic testing is going to be a huge game-changer in all of medicine, and Dr. Agrest and I are very proud to be some of the first practitioners in the Chicago area offering genetic testing for Macular Degeneration in our office (more info on this may be found in my previous blog entry).

I was a little hesitant to continue Carillon’s tradition of publishing patient newsletters when I arrived in Glenview nearly 3 years ago. Yet, much to my surprise and delight, I have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from many of our patients every time! A sincere thanks to all of you that take a minute to read about what Carillon Vision Care is doing to provide the best care possible. The Carillon staff, Dr. Agrest, and I love our profession, and we are always seeking ways to make your experience at Carillon even better.

Happy Holidays to your and yours!
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Andrew Neukirch
