At the Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas, our number one Las Vegas optometrist and the rest of our team of friendly, helpful staff members truly care about the eye health and vision of each and every one of our patients. Because we care so much about our patients, we make it a point to carefully instruct them about how to take care of their eyes and the vision products that they use. If you wear contact lenses or are thinking about switching to wearing them in the future, it is extremely important to know how to care for and clean your lenses in order to keep your eyes healthy and your vision clear.

Contact Lens Care Las Vegas

Firstly, it is important to wear your lenses only as directed by our Las Vegas optometrist. Certain lenses are to be worn only for certain lengths of time. For example, at the Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas, we have various types of contact lenses available, such as lenses for extended or overnight wear, disposable daily lenses, or lenses that you keep for about two weeks at a time, taking them out each night and cleaning them for re-wear the next day.

That brings up another important point about contact lenses: you need to keep them clean, especially if you are going to wear them for more than one day. You should only be cleaning your contact lenses with designated contact lens solution. It is also important to make sure that your hands are completely clean before you touch your lenses or your eyes. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water, and it is best to dry your hands using a paper towel so that no particles or germs get stuck to your hands. Always check your lenses for any foreign particles, rips, or tears before you place them in your eyes. If your contact lens ever feels uncomfortable or painful in your eye, it is best to take it out and visit or contact our Las Vegas optometrist for advice.

Glaucoma can be more common than many of us think, and can often develop without any sign or warning until the damage has already begun. When this occurs, often times the symptoms may develop over a long period of time, or simply could be lingering without us ever being aware of their presence, depending on the type of glaucoma you are experiencing. Glaucoma comes in two varieties, both of which can cause permanent harm to your vision without adequate treatment from your local Las Vegas eye doctor. Fortunately, regular eye exams to check for glaucoma of any type and degree are available at your convenience through the affordable offices of your Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas.

The most common type of glaucoma is known as wide or open-angle glaucoma. With this variety the eye appears physically normal and healthy, and yet it still has problems, with the steady flow of intraocular fluid drainage through the intricate meshwork which naturally makes up many parts of your eye. This condition develops and occurs slowly, often with tunnel vision occurring at gradual rate where the peripheral vision of our sight fields begins to shrink in such a means that many of us often never notice it before we have it pointed out to us by our trusted Las Vegas eye doctor. The lack of physical problems with your eye makes open-angle glaucoma tricky to diagnose through

Angle-closure glaucoma is the far less common type of glaucoma, and is also known as chronic angle-closure or narrow-angle glaucoma. This type of glaucoma is actually caused by a physical issue with the structures of your eye and can be easily diagnosed by your local Las Vegas eye doctor, and develops far more quickly than open-angle glaucoma. Narrow-angle glaucoma is caused by the angle between your cornea and iris of your eye not being wide enough to properly accommodate the drainage channel that naturally exists there. This causes poor drainage and a sudden build-up in pressure, creating angle-closure glaucoma.

Despite the two different types of glaucoma occurring in such divergent ways, the symptoms and risk factors of glaucoma are still the same. If you are over 40, have poor vision, diabetes, are currently taking steroids such as prednisone, or have a family history of glaucoma, you are at a much higher risk of developing a case of the disease. If you are experiencing, halos around light sources within your vision, vision loss, redness in your eyes, rarely accompanied by optical pain and nausea or vomiting, you should not hesitate to visit your professional Las Vegas eye doctor at the welcoming offices of the Walmart Vision Center of Las Vegas. A swift diagnosis and early treatment can work to save your sight from the damages of glaucoma.
