Absolutely the best Optometrist I have ever been to. Have had glasses since third grade and nothing has come close to the prescription and quality of eyewear I received. The staff is very friendly and a clean yet comfortable environment. Top of line diagnostic equipment and Dr. Geowitz spends plenty of time explaining the whole process and answers all questions. highly recommended

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.

      My 7-year old daughter developed myopia and it was developing too fast. When I was searching for solutions I did not feel hopeful that there was a way. I'm glad I tried and I found Dr. Gerowitz. Ortho K lens actually works. Dr. Gerowitz is a great doctor. He's very thorough. He knows what he's doing. My daughter does not need to wear glasses now. She's so proud and she can swim or do other sports without squinting. We hope to continue the treatment till she's old enough for Lasik or when the myopia doesn't deteriorate as fast. OrthoK really improved the life quality of my daughter.

      I’ve been seeing Dr. Gerowitz for 6 years now. Him and his team are always extremely thorough with examinations and also I’m extremely happy with ortho-k, I only wish I had started it earlier.

      Great experience as a first timer. The staff and Dr. Gerowitz were all very friendly and helpful. I especially loved how Dr. Gerowitz really took his time to explain my son's vision conditions as well as how the treatment works. After couple follow-up visits, we are very satisfied with the vision improvement for my son. Will recommend to kids who need help on vision correction.

      Dr Gerowitz is highly skilled and has a great "bedside manner." It took me years of searching to find someone who would address my dry-eye issues, and I'm very grateful to be his patient. Liked him so well, I just brought my mother to him, and I don't do that with just any doctor. If you're dissatisfied with your current care, this guy is the answer!

      I have three sons in the program. Two of the older sons have been in the program with Dr. G for several years. Their eyes are perfect now. The youngest one just getting his lens a couple of weeks ago, and His vision is 20/20 now. I recommend Dr. G for vision correction instead of relying on traditional glasses.

      I will recommend Dr. Gerowitz to everyone I know. It is amazing to see my daughter's eye sight changed in just two weeks! Satisfied customer!

      After wearing RGP lenses for the last 45 years, I can without a doubt say that the lenses that Dr. Gerowitz provides are the best I have ever worn. When I had to move into bifocal lenses, the transition was seamless. I highly recommend Dr. Gerowitz and his staff if you're in need of contacts. In particular, rigid gas permeable lenses.
