Eye Care in Las Vegas NV
Our eyeglasses will definitely allow you to see considerably better, and that’s, of course, a good thing. However, it’s easy to take that for granted, but we can assure you that at Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas, we are dedicated to ensuring that you are getting the right prescription; one that represents the ideal correction for your current visual deficiencies.
Our eye care in Las Vegas NV will do a complete eye exam, and our optometrist will test you to determine how well you see up close, far away, and side-to-side. You will then be written a prescription to address nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, or some combination of them. You will get eyeglasses that give you sharp and clear vision at all distances, but the reality is that your vision does change over time. So what was perfect for you a year ago may only be adequate for you now. Given enough time, your eyeglasses can eventually have little or even no value, since they are designed to correct the vision you had then, not what you have now. Our eye care in Las Vegas NV believes that you should have up-to-date glasses all the time. After all, getting the right prescription can be key to everything you do, including driving. If you need corrective lenses to drive, having an improper prescription can be dangerous. And not only to you, but to your passengers and to other motorists and pedestrians. Getting the right prescription is also vital to avoid the problems that are associated with subpar vision, such as headaches due to eye strain.
The only question that matters is why should you settle for a prescription that does not suit your needs when our eye care in Las Vegas NV can give you outstanding corrected vision? Call our office right now and arrange an appointment to come in.
Family Eye Doctor in Las Vegas
If you are looking for a great vision practice and optical store where you can have your eyes checked, and then purchase eyeglasses or contact lenses under the same roof, you will want to come and visit us at our Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas. Our family eye doctor in Las Vegas is able to provide vision care and vision exams for all members of the family.
Just one of our top notch optometrists is Dr. Julie Chang. When patients need to have a comprehensive eye exam, she is able to provide them with a thorough eye exam which will not only provide them with a new lens prescription, but also make sure that her patient’s eyes are free of any eye diseases or disorders. Our family eye doctor in Las Vegas can also examine your child’s eyes to make sure that your child is not experiencing any vision problems while at school. Even if your child does have a vision checkup while he or she is at school, this checkup usually only screens for distance vision. If your child is having trouble reading a book or seeing a computer screen, it will not show up in this type of eye exam at school.
Our family eye doctor in Las Vegas can provide you with a comprehensive eye exam or contact lens exam and fitting. During both of these exams your eyes will be checked for many different types of eye diseases including: cataracts; macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; glaucoma; retinal tears; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. If it is determined that you need any type of advanced care, our eye doctor will be able to refer you to an expert ophthalmologist in the area who can provide you with the advanced care that you may need. Our optometrist will also check your eyes for any type of refractive errors. If it is determined that you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism, our optometrist will be able to provide you with a lens prescription for either contact lenses or glasses. If you are getting a contact lens exam, your eyes will also be measured for the curvature of the cornea and the size of the iris. All this information is part of a contact lens prescription. Once you have your prescription in hand you will be able to choose from a tremendous selection of eyeglass frames, or purchase your contact lenses, at our vision practice.
When dealing with keratoconus, our Vegas eye doctor at Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas, explains that we see through our cornea, which is the clear, central part of the front surface of your eye. Usually, your cornea has a dome shape, somewhat like a ball. Sometimes, however, the structure of your cornea is simply not strong enough to hold this round shape and your cornea bulges outward like a cone. This condition is called keratoconus. Normally, tiny fibers of protein in your eye called collagen, help hold your cornea in place and keep it from bulging. When these fibers become weak, they can no longer hold the shape and your cornea becomes increasingly more cone shaped.
Vegas Eye Examinations
Since keratoconus seems to run in families, if you have children, our Vegas eye doctor thinks it’s a good idea to have their eyes checked for it starting at age 10. The condition also happens more often in people with certain medical problems, including specific allergic conditions. Some studies have also shown that the condition could possibly be related to chronic eye rubbing but, most often, there is no eye injury or disease that can explain why the eye starts to change. Keratoconus usually starts in the teenage years but can, however, begin in childhood, or in people up to age 30. It’s less common for it to occur in people 40 and older. There is no specific time frame with keratoconus and changes in the shape of your cornea can happen quickly or may occur over several years. The changes may result in blurred vision, the streaking of lights, and glare and halos at night.
In most people who have keratoconus, both eyes are eventually affected, although not always to the same extent. The condition usually develops in one eye first and then later in the other eye. The changes to your cornea can make it impossible for the eye to focus without the help of eyeglasses or contact lenses. Our Vegas eye doctor has also seen cases where a corneal transplant was needed to restore vision because the condition was severe.
