Dr. Stuart P. Sondheimer is a highly experienced eye surgeon and board-certified ophthalmologist that has been offering breakthrough treatment to patients for almost 40 years. He specializes in LASIK, cataract surgery, and refractive cataract surgery and was among the first in his field to practice these techniques. In his private practice in Skokie, IL, Dr. Sondheimer performs photorefractive keratectomy as a LASIK alternative and laser vitreolysis for floaters. In cases where eye surgery is recommended, patients in the Chicago area can be sure that they are receiving the diagnosis, opinion and surgical skills of a surgeon who has performed tens of thousands of successful procedures.

While eye surgery is a large part of Dr. Sondheimer’s Skokie practice, many patients do not require surgery. He provides modern-day eye care and treats patients with pterygium, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. In addition to regular eye exams, Dr. Sondheimer educates patients on eye basics and how to prevent diabetic-related eye problems. Dr. Sondheimer’s seasoned approach to eye care provides patients with accurate information and remarkable vision correction results.

A very positive experience

by Geraldine G.

Dr. Sondheimer was very informative and reassuring throughout this whole process for me. The lasik went great and I am happy with the results. I was quite nervous and worried going in, but he helped to alleviate my concerns and I have no regrets.
