More About Dr. Sondheimer's Practice
Dr. Sondheimer's commitment to providing modern-day eye care services in a safe, technologically advanced setting served as the building blocks for the establishment of his three north suburban Chicago-based offices. His patients in Skokie, Deerfield, Park Ridge and the surrounding area benefit from the diagnosis, opinion and surgical skill of a highly experienced ophthalmologist.
Dr. Sondheimer's patients receive the best personalized vision care.
Dr. Sondheimer is certified to perform LASIK surgery with the Nidek, Summit, VISX STAR S4 Custom and IntraLase lasers. To complement the precision of these advanced laser systems, he uses Wavefront technology, an advanced mapping system that helps refractive surgeons customize the LASIK procedure to each patient. In addition, Dr. Sondheimer is able to accommodate the vision correction needs of patients who are not candidates for LASIK by offering photorefractive keratectomy (PRK).
While the primary focus of Dr. Sondheimer's practice is refractive surgery, he has also restored the vision of several thousand cataract patients. He utilizes the latest surgical techniques and intraocular lens (IOL) technologies, including the AcrySof ReSTOR, ReZoom and Crystalens IOLs, which provide simultaneous correction of near (reading) and distance (driving) vision.

In addition to advanced IOLs technologies, Dr. Sondheimer offers Visian implantable collamer lenses (ICLs) to treat nearsightedness. This revolutionary technology offers a no-stitch, reversible vision correction solution for patients who are not eligible for LASIK. During the Visian ICL implantation procedure, Dr. Sondheimer creates a micro-incision in the eye, through which he inserts a folded lens. Due to the tiny incision size, no stitches are required after this procedure, which in turn shortens recovery time. Unlike IOLs, Visian ICLs allow patients to retain their natural lenses. In addition, they can be removed if necessary. By using the advanced Visian ICLs technique, Dr. Sondheimer has helped many patients achieve clear vision.
