Welcome to Progressive Vision Center

Serving the Canton-Peoria Area Since 1988

With an optometry practice in Canton, Progressive Vision Center has been serving patients from Farmington, Lewistown, Canton, and Elmwood, IL since 1988. Our eye doctors, Drs. Bobell and Buczko, know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly.

Getting the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses is an important part of good eye care. But seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have annual eye exams with an optometrist whether or not you wear eyeglasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp. Book your eye exam with one of our eye doctors today.

Q&A with Our Drs. Bobell & Dr. Buczko

How do I know if I have Dry Eye Syndrome?

Dry eye can cause quite a few symptoms, anything from the eyes actually feeling dry to the eyes watering often, or having a burning, itchy, or irritated feeling. One of the most common symptoms is the eyes feeling gritty or like something is in your eye. Most people will often experience blurred vision since the tears, which comprise the outermost surface of the eye, are unstable.

Is there anything I can do to prevent it?

Dry eye is multifactorial, and each person’s dry eye is unique to them. To help prevent dry eye, make sure to consume 8 to 10 glasses of water per day to avoid dehydration. Some nutritional supplements, such as fish oil and flaxseed oil, can contribute to a more stable tear layer.

Remember to blink regularly and take breaks often when on a computer, cell phone or when watching television. During times of the year when there is less humidity, a humidifier might be helpful to provide more moisture in the air.
