Las Vegas Eye Doctors

Sometimes we overlook medical conditions because we don’t think they are serious enough to bring to a doctor. However, if an eye ailment is bothering you to the point that it becomes a nuisance in your life, you should bring it up at your next appointment with Dr. Shannon Chandler. Dry eye syndrome is one of those very real conditions that many people continue living with for too long, and unnecessarily. At the office of Shannon Chandler O.D., our Las Vegas eye doctor is dedicated to treating all your eye problems, including dry eye syndrome, so you can live with clear and comfortable vision.

Our eyes need constant moisture, or lubrication, to function properly, see clearly, and remain comfortable. When your eyes aren’t able to produce enough tears, or produce inadequate tears, you develop dry eye syndrome. This results in discomfort, stinging, or even burning. Our Las Vegas eye doctor can diagnose and treat dry eye syndrome based on your individual needs. While some individuals experience dry eye syndrome symptoms all day long, others only experience dry eye syndrome under certain conditions such as in air conditioning, on an airplane, running, riding a bike, or looking at a computer screen for too long.

When you experience dry eye symptoms, it’s always a good idea to visit a doctor you trust, like Dr. Chandler, to make sure that your dry eyes aren’t a symptom of a more serious condition. If all else checks out, you have many options for treatment. Artificial tears and ointments are readily available over the counter and can provide great relief. For chronic dry eyes, our Las Vegas eye doctor may consider prescribing FDA approved eye drops that actually increase your own tear production. Additionally, for some serious cases, there are other forms of medication and even surgery options to treat dry eyes.

Living with dry eye syndrome can be frustrating, annoying, and even painful. The good news is, when you visit our Las Vegas eye doctor, you are in good hands. Diagnosing dry eye syndrome is the first step to recovery. To visit our office, call us at 702-791-6860 or request an appointment on our website eyedoctor-lasvegas.com. Let us help you be on your way to more comfortable, clear, and healthy eyes.

Our Las Vegas optometrist, Dr. Shannon Chandler, is dedicated to providing her patients with outstanding eye care that is unparalleled in quality and convenience. 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. Some of the most common eye conditions that typically occur in patients can develop so gradually and slowly that you may not realize you have it until it has already advanced significantly.

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 are due for an eye exam, please do not hesitate to schedule an appointment. You can do so by phone or online. We look forward to your next visit!
