Cataract Surgery in Las Vegas

Thank you for visiting the office of Shannon Chandler, O.D. and Lesa Davis, O.D., where we offer cataract surgery in Las Vegas, NV. Our eye exams and eye screenings help to discover ocular conditions such as cataracts before they can impact your vision. Every year, thousands of people are diagnosed with both glaucoma and cataracts. Our cataract surgery co-management is designed to provide the best, most comprehensive patient treatment, by working closely with surgeons, allowing our patients a safe and speedy recovery.

Cataracts is the condition wherein a film develops in the lens; it is one of the leading causes of blindness in the U.S. today. There is no cure for some eye diseases such as glaucoma – however, patients diagnosed with cataracts may benefit from cataract surgery. Cataract surgery involves replacing the clouded lens in the eye with a clear, artificial one. Cataracts symptoms include blurry vision, vision loss and trouble driving at night. If not treated, cataracts can result in severe vision loss. After cataract surgery, some patients may need to wear glasses. If glasses or contact lenses are required after surgery, we can provide a prescription specifically for you in our office.

An annual eye exam is essential for diagnosing and treating eye conditions, like cataracts, that may lead to vision loss over time. Our tests are designed to diagnose many different eye diseases and conditions. If we discover anything abnormal, we will discuss treatment options with you before beginning a treatment plan. Maintaining good vision is essential, and because eyes change with age, we strive to help you find the right balance between corrective lenses and treatment. If you notice any changes in vision, or have suffered from vision loss due to cataracts, you should consider meeting with one of our doctors to see if cataract surgery in Las Vegas is an option for you. If you have any concerns about your eye health, please call our office today.

Treating eye allergies in Las Vegas

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.
