Are your eyes often itchy, burning, teary, or red? Do you find your eyes are often swollen and uncomfortable? Have you noticed if these symptoms occur during certain times of the year? If you’ve answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you should visit our Las Vegas optometrist, Dr. Shannon Chandler, for an ocular allergy evaluation. Ocular allergies, also known as allergic conjunctivitis or simple eye allergies, are quite common. They affect one in five Americans every year. Ocular allergies can be broken down into two main types. The most common type of ocular allergy is the seasonal allergy. This means that you tend to experience ocular allergy symptoms only during certain seasons of the year – usually starting around early spring and continuing into summer and fall. In these cases, allergies occur because of allergens in the air from pollen, trees, weeds, and even spores from molds.

The other, less common type of ocular allergy is the perennial allergy. Individuals who experience this type of allergy have symptoms all year round. Perennial allergy symptoms are usually triggered by indoor allergens, such as pet dander, mold, dust, feathers, perfumes, smoke, cosmetics, certain types of medication, and more. Trying to pinpoint what is triggering your allergy symptoms can be useful in finding an effective and personalized treatment. If you are experiencing symptoms that are not easily remedied on your own, you should visit Dr. Chandler for an evaluation. Our Las Vegas optometrist will examine your eyes and discuss possible triggers for allergies in order to determine a treatment solution that works for you. In some cases, symptoms similar to allergy symptoms may actually be from an eye infection, so you should always visit a professional like Dr. Chandler if your symptoms are persistent.

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.
