Optometrist Dr. Robert Gerowitz graduated with honors from Northeastern Illinois University in 1977 with a degree in Pre-Optometry. In 1979 at the Illinois College of Optometry, he received a second bachelor’s degree in Visual Science and in 1981 was awarded his doctorate in Optometry. Since 2000, he has been successfully managing progressive myopia (nearsightedness that increases each year in children) in Chicago’s Northwest suburbs. Corneal Reshaping may sound like a miracle, but it really works. Dr. Gerowitz has been using this application himself for over 20 years. In 2002, Dr. Rob participated in the first ever Global Orthokeratology Symposium in Toronto. As a result of those seminars, Dr. Gerowitz has often been invited to speak at other meetings to fellow Orthokeratologists. Dr. Rob is also a charter member of the American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control, a Fellow in the Academy, and serves on its Board of Directors. He helped establish the group of Orthokeratologists which became the FDA’s S.M.A.R.T. Study investigators. Over the years he has sponsored anti-drug campaigns in area schools, toy drives for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and lectured on ocular trauma for Northwest Community Hospital’s Emergency Medical Services program, and has worked actively with the deaf community in the Northwest suburbs to bring qualified vision care to that special population. In 1994, Dr. Gerowitz was named “Best and Brightest” in Optometry by 20/20 Magazine and in 1997 Eyegrad named him “Optometrist of the Year“. In 1996 Dr. Gerowitz completed extensive training in the treatment of external eye disease as an enhancement to his licensure. Dr. Rob and Korreen reside in Palatine. As a community supporter, Dr. Gerowitz is a member of the Rotary Club of Palatine and was listed as “Rotarian of the Year 1998-99”. He has also served on the board of directors for the Palatine Chamber of Commerce. Dr. Robert Gerowitz truly is Palatine’s Hometown Eye Doctor.

We are the leading choice for professional eye care services in Palatine and surrounding areas, with significant focus on treating myopia, or nearsightedness, with Orthokeratology (OrthoK). This method involves using advanced corneal molding to gently and gradually reshape the cornea, allowing for improved vision. OrthoK offers a safe and effective alternative to eyeglasses, contact lenses, or even corrective surgery.

Dr. Robert Gerowitz has been successfully treating myopia with orthoK in the Palatine, IL and northern Chicago suburbs since 2000. He is a nationally recognized expert in this non-surgical vision correction and a charter member of the American Academy of Orthokeratology and Myopia Control. He is also a Fellow in the Academy, serving on its Board of Directors. Additionally, he established the group of Orthokeratologists, which became the FDA’s S.M.A.R.T. Study Investigators.

While we serve all of the northwest suburbs Dr. Robert Gerowitz, Optometrist PC is based in Palatine. Dr. Gerowitz is an avid contributor to his hometown, having supported the community and an esteemed member of the Rotary Club of Palatine. In fact, he was listed as Rotarian of the Year 1998-99.
