Testing for eye diseases is very important to your ocular health. There are so many reasons why the friendly and experienced eye doctor in Las Vegas NV professionals here at the office of Shannon Chandler, O.D. and Lesa Davis, O.D. are the answer to all of your eye care needs. We use state of the art equipment and the most advanced eye care techniques to test your eyes.

Dr. Chandler and Dr. Davis are pleased to provide patients with an advanced digital retinal exam called EyeScreen. EyeScreen is a high resolution photograph of your retina which will help us document, review, and compare your retina over time. We use the EyeScreen Exam to document your retinal image for our charts, screen for many eye diseases and improve our ability to view your internal retinal health at a much higher resolution than a slit lamp or ophthalmoscope. Dr. Chandler and Dr. Davis are concerned about retinal problems such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal holes, detachment, and diabetic retinopathy (all of which can lead to partial loss of vision or blindness). Additionally, many signs of systemic diseases such as diabetes, the effects of high blood pressure and other diseases can be detected with the EyeScreen Examination.

Dilation is another method to test for eye diseases and an alternative to the EyeScreen Exam offered by Dr. Chandler and Dr. Davis. Dilating the pupils with medicated eye drops allows our optometrists to view more of the inner eye in order to detect problems such as retinal tears, tumors, glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and damage to the eyes from many health conditions. Side effects of dilation are difficulty reading and light sensitivity for 3 to 5 hours. Our doctors will give you dark glasses to wear home.

Dr. Chandler and Dr. Davis highly recommend having either the EyeScreen or the dilation done with your yearly eye exam to more thoroughly test for eye diseases. We will take the time to review all the findings with you and answer any questions you may have regarding your eye health and these eye tests.

There is no need to look anywhere else for your eye doctor in Las Vegas NV. We have been proudly serving our community and all of its surrounding areas for years, and we work hard to maintain our reputation.

The office of Shannon Chandler, O.D. and Lesa Davis, O.D. specializes in state of the art eye care, comprehensive eye exams, and contact lens fittings in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere designed to make you feel at home. A retinal exam in Las Vegas office is designed to diagnose eye conditions that can’t be discovered during a regular eye examination; this allows us to immediately diagnose your condition before any symptoms get worse.

Our digital retinal photograph, called EyeScreen, uses the latest in digital technology to create a high-resolution photograph of your retina. The usual side effects that accompany dilation drops – such as light sensitivity and blurred vision – are non-existent with this procedure. The highly detailed picture allows us to compare, and review your retina during future visits, to determine changes to the retina, if any. The EyeScreen documents the retina, aids in screening for any eye diseases, and allows for monitoring the health of the eye. Although slit lamp tests or ophthalmoscopes can check for eye diseases, the EyeScreen allows us to view the retina at a much higher resolution. EyeScreen can help check your eyes for conditions such as glaucoma, retinal holes, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Early detection of these conditions is crucial – they can cause, or result in blindness and vision loss. Signs of diabetes and high blood pressure are often detected during the retinal exam, well before actual symptoms are experienced by the patient.

Those afflicted with diabetes should have their eyes checked frequently, primarily due to the danger of vision loss. Macular degeneration is especially prominent in diabetics, so having a doctor that is familiar with this type of disease can be essential. Schedule your retinal exam in Las Vegas office if you have experienced any eye or vision changes, so that we may check your eyes immediately and detect any problems before they start.
