Dr. Robert Strasser
Dr. Robert T. Strasser graduated from the Illinois College of Optometry in 1987, earning both a Bachelor Degree in Visual Science and a Doctor of Optometry. Dr. Strasser has been a part of the Visibly Better Eye Care family of doctors since May 2009. He has brought his skills in Ocular Disease treatment and management as well as his expertise with contact lens options to the practice and has been able to grow a dedicated clientele.
Dr. Strasser specializes in contact lens fittings and Ocular Disease Treatment and Management. His proficiency in bifocal and rigid gas permeable fittings has enabled many former contact lens patients to once again comfortably wear contact lenses. Dr. Strasser keeps current on his knowledge of mild anti-allergic prescription medication and the continued improvement of these medications. As a result, many allergic patients are able to more comfortably wear their contact lenses.
Visibly Better Eye Care’s retinal scan technology assisted Dr. Strasser in preventing a stroke in an elderly patient due to his early diagnosis. With Visibly Better’s retinal cameras and the skill of our Optometrists, we are able to provide excellent images to either diagnose or rule out: glaucoma, retinal tears and macular degeneration.
Dr. Strasser golfs for a cause! In 2012, he participated in the 2012 CASA (Court Approved Special Advocate) Fundraiser golf tournament at Kemper Lakes. In an average year, CASA Lake County provides free personal advocacy services for over 575 abused and neglected children. Dr. Strasser was so moved by the event that he now voluntarily provides eye exams to these under privileged, abused kids. Visibly Better Eye Care applauds Dr. Strasser for his commitment to making a difference in the lives of these children.
Dr. Strasser has 3 children, and enjoys golf, scuba and Ravinia Concerts in his spare time. He enjoys spending time with his grandchildren, and is also an Amateur Wine Enthusiast.
