"Call us for the finest care possible with a personalized and compassionate approach." With a history of superior results, ground breaking technology and quality patient care, Advanced Vision Specialists strives to remain a premier eyecare provider in Chicago.

Dr. John Bello and his staff at Advanced Vision Specialists are a premier eye care center located on the Northwest side of Chicago. Dr. Bello has a strong reputation for being a prominent cataract specialist for over 20 years and we work hard to provide high quality eye care to our patients and their families.

My vision prior to cataract surgery was very bad. I had tried glasses, contacts, trifocals, and readers. Night vision was very scary too because of glare , halos and starbursts of light. I had difficulty estimating car distance when changing lanes, and I could not read street signs, maps, and everything was just one big blur. I am a nurse here at Resurrection Hospital, patient care has always been my top priority. This time I was the patient. I had many fears and apprehensions prior to my cataract surgery, and the decision to choose which implant would be best for me became a very hard decision. I was given a lot of educational information from Dr. Bello and his surgical consultant, in addition, I sometimes spoke daily with a representative from Eyeonics, the company that manufactures the Crystalens®. Not to mention that I had the hospital librarian pull up countless research papers for me to review. I finally decided that Dr. Bello and this breakthrough procedure was the right choice for me. I now enjoy my life to the fullest. I can see near,far and in between without glasses. Everything I see is clearer, brighter and more vivid. I no longer have to squint to read. I have "new" eyes. I feel I have been blessed with a whole new world of vision, a rebirth. I am in love with my Crystalens®. It is a marvelous, awesome invention. What a phenomenal contribution to mankind!!!
