It’s a brand new year and any list of resolutions should include making your eye health a priority. Statistics show that one in five Americans still put off having their yearly eye exams because they can “see well enough.” The well-educated optometrists at our Las Vegas optometry office can’t stress enough that without these annual exams, serious problems that threaten your eyesight can go undiagnosed, delaying necessary treatments. No matter your age, yearly eye exams are important for you to see more clearly now and to make sure you continue to see clearly in the future.

A new year can also mean new vision problems and it’s always better to be safe than sorry.  During a comprehensive eye exam at our Las Vegas optometry office, much more than determining your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses is accomplished.  A variety of tests and procedures will be used to examine your eyes, from having you read an eye chart to more involved tests, such as using a high-powered lens to examine your retina.

Eye exams are the best way to make sure you are using an up to date optical prescription. Wearing contact lenses or eyeglasses with a prescription that is too weak can cause undue eye strain, eye fatigue, and even headaches.  To keep prescriptions current and to check for early signs of any eye disease, adults should have their eyes tested regularly, an examination which takes less time than you think!  Eye exams are just as important for your young ones, as proper vision is closely linked to the learning process, eye-hand coordination, and academic success. If you see that your child is performing poorly at school, it is recommended that you have their eyes examined by Dr. Chandler, who provides exceptional family eye care at our Las Vegas optometry office.

Yearly eye exams are also a necessary part of complete health and wellness. Not many people are aware of this, but optometrists are often the first health care provider to discover signs of systemic diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. High cholesterol may also be detected by looking at your eyes during the examination.  With so many benefits to be gained by committing to yearly eye exams, be sure to make your health a priority in 2014 and begin by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Chandler at our Las Vegas optometry office.

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.

You never have to worry about being too difficult to fit into contact lenses with the help of our professional Las Vegas eye doctors at the office of Shannon Chandler, O.D. Our team specializes in contact lens exams and fittings for even the most difficult to treat vision problems, with separate fitting procedures and advanced modes of care for those who require treatment of keratoconus. The staff of our optometry office in Las Vegas will work with you to identify your personal and medical needs, from dry eyes to colored contact lenses and everything in between. We will find and fit the perfect contact lenses to your eyes. Whether you have a simple case of nearsightedness or a difficult level of presbyopia, you can be sure to find the contact lens options and care you need at Dr. Shannon Chandler’s optometry office.
