Having a regularly scheduled eye exam is very important to maintaining your good eye health. There are many different eye diseases or eye conditions that can be discovered as part of your regular eye exam. If you find that you need to treat eye disease in Vegas, you will do very well to seek out the services of our skilled optometrist, Dr. Paul Thompson.
Dr. Thompson is an expert optometrist who has his optometry office at the W. Charleston Boulevard Walmart in Las Vegas. He provides quality eye care to treat many different eye conditions and to help patients avoid vision loss. There are many eye diseases that can cause vision loss if left untreated, and often vision lost to eye diseases cannot be recovered. When it comes to eye care it definitely is true that an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure. Many problems that need treatment to prevent vision loss need to be diagnosed early in order to be effectively treated. Diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma are two very serious eye diseases that can cause permanent vision loss; however if they are diagnosed early and treated early vision loss can most likely be completely avoided. At our practice we are able to treat eye disease in Vegas very effectively and keep patients from experiencing serious vision problems or even vision loss.
During a comprehensive eye exam, our optometrist will be able to determine if our patient has any eye diseases or conditions. Included in the most common diseases and conditions that are screened for are: glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; cataracts; macular degeneration; and other diseases of the retina and eye. We are able to help with treatment and management of many of these diseases; our goal is to keep the disease from progressing. We can also treat eye disease in Vegas for conditions such as dry eye and problems that are not chronic such as an infected eye, or an eye that is being affected by a specific allergen. We are generally able to offer different options and try our best to tailor our eye disease treatment to our individual patient.
