Contact Lenses Las Vegas

Perhaps the most fun part of a visit to Shannon Chandler, O.D., is picking out eyeglass frames or the type of contact lenses you want to wear. It is often assumed that the criteria for making these selections is entirely based on comfort and personal taste (i.e. how you look in them). But our Las Vegas optometrist wants you to know that your choice of contact lenses and eyeglass frames can also impact your vision. That’s why we’re here to help you find just the right ones for you – that feel good, look good, and let you see as well as possible.

It may not seem like it, but the way you wear your eyeglasses can either support or thwart your efforts at optimal vision. For one thing, the way the prescription lens sits in the frame is essential, and choosing the correct shape of frame can be helpful to meeting this goal. In addition, the placement of the lens is customized because your face shape is unique. One size fits all is not a philosophy for eyeglasses. When your prescription lenses are centered perfectly, your vision is crisper and clearer.

In general, most people can wear either soft contact lenses or hard (gas-permeable) contact lenses to correct for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Hard contact lenses tend to provide sharper vision, while soft lenses are considered to be more comfortable. Our Las Vegas optometrist now offers hybrid lenses, contacts that are rigid at the center and soft around the edges. These hybid lenses are also available in a bifocal option.

The way your contacts fit on your eyes is vital to your vision because if they do not line up as intended, the prescription is not giving you the maximum benefit. Perhaps most important, uncomfortable lenses may spend less time in your eyes and more time in their case. That’s why we work hard to make sure that your contact lenses are right for you and comfortable.

If you would like more information on the various types of frames or lenses that are available, be sure to schedule an appointment with our Las Vegas optometrist, Dr. Chandler. We look forward to discussing all your eye care needs.

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.

She truly cares about your optical health and overall well being. That is why she and the rest of the staff here make it a point to emphasize the importance of regular eye exams.

Early detection of most eye diseases and conditions makes it easier to treat, and also makes treatment more effective. If you have your eyes examined regularly by our Las Vegas optometrist, Dr. Chandler is more likely to detect any eye conditions you may have developed at an early stage and then recommend the most effective treatment options. We recommend that you visit us for a comprehensive eye exam at least once a year. During the exam, which usually takes about one hour, our Las Vegas optometrist will administer a series of tests. The standard tests include: a slit lamp examination, a refraction test, a testing of your intraocular pressure, which can be indicative of glaucoma, and a retinal exam. Further testing may be recommended based on the results of these initial exams. If you wear contact lenses, you also need a contact lens exam regularly to test the accuracy of your prescription and the fit of your lenses.

To learn more about the eye exams and other helpful services offered by Dr. Chandler, we encourage you to visit our Las Vegas optometrist website for additional information. If you have any specific questions or concerns that we can help you with, we would love to hear from you. You can get in touch with Dr. Chandler and the rest of the staff here either by calling during our regular office hours or by sending us a message using the Contact Us form on our website.
