Seasonal allergies have a reputation for causing stuffiness, sneezing, and runny noses – unfortunately, allergies can also have a significant impact on one’s vision. Schedule a consultation in our Las Vegas eye care office with one of our optometrists, Dr. Shannon Chandler or Dr. Lesa Davis, to discuss treatment and other ways to mitigate the effects of allergies on your vision, ensuring that your vision remains healthy for as long as possible.

When the point arrives wherein seasonal allergies have begun to affect your vision, the signs and symptoms are very similar to those of other eye allergies, or even certain eye infections. You may notice that your eyes are watery, red, itchy, or you may experience a burning sensation. Even your eyelids may become swollen. These symptoms can occur instead of, or in addition to, nasal symptoms due to allergies. Of course, any allergic reaction in your body, whether it affects your skin, nose, eyes, or anywhere else, is a clear indication that your body is fighting a perceived threat. It is doing what it thinks is best for you, and when you come to our Las Vegas eye care office, we will do the same. We can assist in lessening, or eliminating, the discomfort associated with the effects of seasonal allergies. First, you will undergo a thorough examination to make sure that your symptoms aren’t due to an underlying eye disease or infection. Mild cases of seasonal allergies can often be treated effectively with over-the-counter allergy medication. However, prescription-strength drugs may be required, especially if symptoms are severe. Our Las Vegas eye care office can assist in determining the best treatment for you.

The difficulties of seasonal allergies don’t last forever; nonetheless, the effects can certainly be diminished, or removed altogether. Don’t suffer needlessly – call our Las Vegas eye care office and we will schedule an appointment to examine, diagnose, and treat your eyes and vision.

If you wear contact lenses, you can be particularly prone to developing eye infections. If you begin to develop eye infection symptoms, you should make an appointment immediately to see one of our top-notch optometrists, Shannon Chandler, O.D. or Lesa Davis, O.D. At our office, you will receive excellent Las Vegas NV vision care to get your eyes healthy once again.

When people wear contact lenses they are more prone to developing eye infections for several reasons. To begin with, some people handle their contact lenses when their hands are not freshly washed. This makes it possible for bacteria, viral and fungal infections to be transferred to the contact lenses from the patient’s hands. It is important whenever you touch your eyes, insert, remove or handle your contact lenses, that your hands are freshly washed and germ-free. People who sleep in their contact lenses are also at an increased risk for developing eye infections. Eye infection symptoms can include an increased sensitivity to light, a yellow, green or watery discharge from your eyes, increasing redness of the eye or eyelid, a gray or white sore visible on the iris, or blurred or decreased vision. There are also certain symptoms which indicate that you need immediate Las Vegas NV vision care. For example, a feeling that there is something in your eye that cannot be removed can be a sign of a serious eye infection or a foreign body in the eye. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important that you come into our vision practice for eye care. Eye infections are usually easy to treat; however, they can quickly evolve into more serious vision problems if they are not treated promptly and properly.
