Eye doctor in Las Vegas
Taking care of your eyesight is important, and it helps to keep up with annual eye exams, tests and screenings. There are plenty of conditions that may develop or issues that may affect your eyesight over the years, and if you happen to have a vision impairment you need to make sure that your optical prescription is always up to date. Here at Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas we can help with all different kinds of vision issues and other needs. Our eye doctor in Las Vegas
is here to perform comprehensive exams and treat specific conditions like astigmatism.
There are many different kinds of vision impairments, and even people who have the same type of impairment will have needs that are completely unique to them and their eyes. On its own, astigmatism is a unique eye condition. Vision impairments like nearsightedness and farsightedness result from imperfections in the shape of the cornea, but irregularities with astigmatism are especially unusual and may need special care, as well as specialty lenses. With astigmatism, the front surface of the eye or the lens (also known as the cornea), is curved differently in one direction than the other. Like other vision impairments, astigmatism is often first detected when persistent blurry vision develops, but this exact condition may not be diagnosed until you have a full exam. Here at Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas, our eye doctor in Las Vegas can provide you with the routine exams you need while also making sure that your optical needs are met when it comes to your particular brand of astigmatism as well. Like other conditions, treatments for astigmatism include prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Laser-assisted surgery, such as LASIK, also may help but you need to be cleared by a specialist first.
Astigmatism can have an impact on how you see the world, but our eye doctor in Las Vegas here at Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas can make sure that your prescription lenses provide you with the exact amount of assistance you need. To learn more or to set up an appointment, call today.
Optometrist in Las Vegas
Here at the Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas, some of our most commonly used products are our contact lenses. In order to get contact lenses, however, you must first visit our optometrist in Las Vegas for a contact lens exam and fitting. A contact lens exam is similar to a regular comprehensive eye exam, but it requires a few extra steps. During the contact lens exam, our optometrist in Las Vegas will evaluate your general eye health through regular testing, and also evaluate your optical prescription in order to determine if any changes need to be made to enhance your vision. Additionally, our optometrist in Las Vegas will take the measurements necessary to ensure that your contact lenses are fitted properly. When your contact lenses are fitted properly, they are more comfortable for you to wear, and they provide you with the clearest vision possible. If you are interested in getting contact lenses, all you need to do is schedule a contact lens exam and fitting with our optometrist in Las Vegas to get started. We will go through the exam and fitting process, and then will help you find the type of contact lens that will work best for you. The two main categories of contact lenses are soft and hard contact lenses. Soft contact lenses are most commonly used because they are the easiest and most comfortable to wear. If you have a very strong prescription or a certain eye condition that prevent the use of soft contact lenses, our optometrist in Las Vegas may recommend hard or gas permeable contact lenses.
