Children are at a very crucial age in their development, both academically and physically. The most common optical conditions develop in a person’s younger years, as many of the conditions we have are genetically passed down. This means that your children need to be seen every year for an eye exam from your trusted Las Vegas children’s eye care center to ensure their eyes are functioning perfectly. In most cases, children are diagnosed with a simple case of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism that can be easily corrected with prescription eyeglasses. These conditions develop at a slow and gradual rate such that your children may not even realize they are having trouble seeing clearly until a classmate or teacher points it out to them.

If your child has already been diagnosed with a vision condition, your son or daughter needs to be seen for an eye exam every single year to ensure that their eyeglass prescription is up to date. Prescriptions often change every year as your children’s eyes develop along with the rest of their bodies. Sometimes their vision can get better and often times can grow worse until it plateaus. This means that the eyeglasses your children received last year may not be the right prescription anymore. When it comes to your child’s vision, be sure to put his or her optical care in the hands of our Las Vegas children’s eye care professionals at the office of Shannon Chandler, O.D.

If you are wondering whether or not your vision could be corrected just as efficiently, if not more effectively, with contact lenses, then the best course of action is to see our Las Vegas eye doctor for a contact lens exam. Unlike eyeglasses, contact lenses rest directly on the  surface of your eye, requiring additional tests and measurements to find the perfect type and fit for your eyes. At the office of Shannon Chandler, O.D., located in Las Vegas, we make it easy for you to find the care you need with contact lens exams and fittings to help you see clearly without the need for ophthalmic eyeglasses.

Contact lens exams vary for each and every patient, depending on your optical condition as well as your personal needs. Our Las Vegas eye doctor, Dr. Chandler, will work with you to identify which type of contact lens will work best for your unique visual needs, such as whether your work and personal life are better suited to daily disposable lenses, extended wear that are thrown out after two weeks of wear for 14 hours a day, or overnight contacts to keep up with your endless days and nights. The most common vision problems can be corrected by soft contact lenses in any of these varieties, such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.

Recent advances in the field of optometry have allowed for even more eye conditions to be treated with contact lenses than ever before. If you have presbyopia in addition to another optical condition, you can still go without eyeglasses by wearing special bifocal contact lenses, made from a rigid gas permeable material. These more rigid variety of lenses can be utilized to treat vision problems at multiple distances by being equipped with two and sometimes even three strengths of prescriptions. Rigid and hybrid lenses from your Las Vegas eye doctor can also treat difficult to fit cases of keratoconus for clearer vision than ever before, and for many can provide even better vision than traditional eyeglasses.

You never have to worry about being too difficult to fit into contact lenses with the help of our professional Las Vegas eye doctors at the office of Shannon Chandler, O.D. Our team specializes in contact lens exams and fittings for even the most difficult to treat vision problems, with separate fitting procedures and advanced modes of care for those who require treatment of keratoconus. The staff of our optometry office in Las Vegas will work with you to identify your personal and medical needs, from dry eyes to colored contact lenses and everything in between. We will find and fit the perfect contact lenses to your eyes. Whether you have a simple case of nearsightedness or a difficult level of presbyopia, you can be sure to find the contact lens options and care you need at Dr. Shannon Chandler’s optometry office.
