You’ve probably heard from every doctor you’ve visited that routine examinations, whether they are physicals, dental check-ups or eye exams are extremely important to your overall health and wellness. Whether you brushed off their warnings because you believe you are in good health or if just plain ignored them, the eye care professionals at Walmart Vision Centers are here to tell you that routine eye exams are essential. Not only do these brief and painless procedures correct vision problems, but they can detect many potentially sight-stealing eye diseases like glaucoma!
Many people first come to Walmart Vision Center to receive an eye examination with our Las Vegas family optometrists because they are experiencing some difficulty with their vision. Whether they’re experiencing double vision, blurry vision, or eye strain, our skilled and licensed eye doctors will perform a thorough examination and evaluation of their eye health. More often than not, the individual will have an undiagnosed vision problem like myopia, hyperopia or astigmatism. These common vision problems are easily remedied with an optical prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, during this examination, the eye doctors will also assess the overall health and function of your eyes. This will include an evaluation of the sharpness of your vision, a check on your intraocular pressure, as well as pupil dilation to inspect the internal structures of the eye. All of these tests are vital in early detection of eye diseases and prevention of vision loss.
