Las Vegas NV vision care
If you wear contact lenses, you can be particularly prone to developing eye infections. If you begin to develop eye infection symptoms, you should make an appointment immediately to see one of our top-notch optometrists, Shannon Chandler, O.D. or Lesa Davis, O.D. At our office, you will receive excellent Las Vegas NV vision care to get your eyes healthy once again.
When people wear contact lenses they are more prone to developing eye infections for several reasons. To begin with, some people handle their contact lenses when their hands are not freshly washed. This makes it possible for bacteria, viral and fungal infections to be transferred to the contact lenses from the patient’s hands. It is important whenever you touch your eyes, insert, remove or handle your contact lenses, that your hands are freshly washed and germ-free. People who sleep in their contact lenses are also at an increased risk for developing eye infections. Eye infection symptoms can include an increased sensitivity to light, a yellow, green or watery discharge from your eyes, increasing redness of the eye or eyelid, a gray or white sore visible on the iris, or blurred or decreased vision. There are also certain symptoms which indicate that you need immediate Las Vegas NV vision care. For example, a feeling that there is something in your eye that cannot be removed can be a sign of a serious eye infection or a foreign body in the eye. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is important that you come into our vision practice for eye care. Eye infections are usually easy to treat; however, they can quickly evolve into more serious vision problems if they are not treated promptly and properly.

Las Vegas Eye Doctor
Premium vision care in Las Vegas begins with a comprehensive eye examination at the office of Shannon Chandler, O.D. Regular eye exams are the best means of detecting any changes in vision, diseases of the eye, or other disorders which may not present any obvious or painful symptoms. Astigmatism is a condition which is defined as an unusual curvature of the eye. As an example, if a perfectly normal eye were the shape of a marble, an eye with astigmatism would be less perfectly spherical, and a bit more oblong, like a football (though the degree of curvature can be broad). This variation in the eye’s curvature causes light to be refracted more in one direction than the other, resulting in objects at any distance appearing distorted or blurry.
After detection, astigmatism can be corrected using prescription eyeglasses, soft toric contact lenses, rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses, and/or hybrid contact lenses (soft and RGP lenses). As a general guide, prescription eyeglasses may be necessary to correct your eyesight at a particular or various distances. Contact lenses are precisely fitted to the eye to fit comfortably, and to accurately increase the eye’s ability to see well.
Recommendations for astigmatism treatment in Las Vegas will be made for you by Shannon Chandler, O.D. Each patient’s needs are understandably unique – upon completion of your eye exam, Dr. Chandler will be sure to review all of her findings with you.
