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.
