Contact Lenses and Eyeglasses

At Ticho Eye Associates, we offer comprehensive ocular examinations for the diagnosis and treatment of common vision problems, including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism, and age-related vision loss (presbyopia). These refractive errors are treated with glasses and/or contact lenses, and occasionally refractive surgery. Our optical center offers a large selection of designer frames to fit every budget. We will help you achieve optimal vision through high-quality eyewear that not only is comfortable but also complements your unique style. Reach out to any of our three locations in Chicago Ridge, IL, Tinley Park, IL, and Munster, IN for our optical center's hours or to book an appointment.







selecting your glasses and contact lenses

After a thorough eye exam, our optical team will guide you through all your glasses and contact lens options. Each optician is professionally trained and certified to help you select the frame style, shape, and size to suit your lifestyle, activity needs, and your facial structure — as well as your individual tastes. When contact lens use is appropriate, we will review all the choices — gas permeable (hard) vs. soft lenses, extended wear vs. daily disposable, clear vs. colored — to match your particular needs. Call Ticho Eye Associates in Chicago Ridge, IL, Tinley Park, IL, and Munster, IN for optical center hours or to schedule an appointment.

Contact Lenses and Eyeglasses FAQs

How often should I replace my vision assistance devices?
Contacts lenses and glasses might need to be replaced at varying rates. You should maintain an annual exam to ensure that your prescription is valid. Contacts come in a variety of lengths, from daily to monthly, while glasses may need to be replaced as little as every couple of years (assuming no changes in vision).

How long can I wear contacts for?
On a daily basis, you should be able to tolerate your contact lenses for 12 — 14 hours. If your eyes feel dry or irritated from repeated contact use, please tell your provider at Ticho Eye Associates. Contacts come in a variety of compositions to allow for different eye types and tolerances.

How often should I renew my prescription?
We recommend being in the routine of having an eyeglass and contact once a year. If you wear contacts, you will need to have an updated prescription from within the last year in order to purchase more. At your annual exam, we can also perform routine screenings to ensure your eye health.
