      Cutting Edge Technology

      Cassini technology employs red, green and yellow LEDs that are each positioned in a unique relationship to four of its neighbors, giving each one a 'gps-like' coordinate. Cassini uses the ray-tracing principle to measure the relative position of each point, using the three different colors as 'triangulation' points.

      "Get serious about your sight. I trust Dr Katz, especially since I found out I was diabetic. Great staff, very concerned. Really good!"
      - Mark B. (Chicago)
      "I found Dr. Richard Katz due to an emergency. I had sudden vision loss in my right eye around the thanksgiving holiday.... He really made me feel like I was his patient and cared. He really kept up to date with my case and also kept in touch with my primary doctor to keep her in the loop.The admin staff are just as great, they helped me schedule my MRI with the hospital with ease and made sure I had everything I needed before I left each visit. I would recommend this place to everyone, they truly know what patient care really is."
      - Alpa P. (Des Plaines)
      "In my 10 years here in Chicago, I have found some wonderful doctors and Dr. Patil is one more to add to that list.I went for an eye exam and some concerns about my vision. She and her staff treated me with respect and dignity. And gave me a very thorough eye exam.I left there very informed and very well-taken care of. I highly recommend you see Dr. Patil."
      - Patrick P. (Chicago)
      "If you're thinking about getting LASIK, go to Dr. James Katz. He took me from 20/300 to 20/20 in each eye. He's knowledgeable, cautious, and an expert in his field. I interviewed about 10 doctors before finding Dr. Katz and could not be happier with my choice to have him perform my LASIK procedure."
      - Inna T. (Deerfield)
      "All of the doctors and all of the staff at Midwest Center for Sight are fantastic. They are completely up-to-date with the latest equipment, tests, treatments, etc. They truly care about their patients and protecting your precious vision. Every step in the process is explained in detail so no need to be scared. And Dr. Mono volunteered to do eye surgery on a bear at Lincoln Park Zoo!"
      - Linda S. (Des Plaines)
      "The glasses I had purchased years ago at Midwest Center for Sight were beat up so it was time for another trip there. I originally wanted to see Dr. Mono, but he is booked forever it seems. For good reason - a great guy and a great eye doctor. Instead I made an appointment with Dr. Dikopf. The appointment went smooth as silk. From the check-in desk to the techs who do the eye and eyeglass evaluations, all were very pleasant and very competent. Dr. Dikopf was great. No dropoff at all and he exceeded expectations. But what made the visit special was working with Christina in choosing and sizing new glasses. Very friendly, very professional and very informed. She made a process that can be painful, quite pain-free! Thanks to everyone in the office!"
      - Mark P. (Morton Grove)
