Contact lens exams are an easy procedure that we use in order to measure the size of our patient’s eyes. The circumference and diameter are measured so that your contact lenses can be fitted to your eyes. At Paul Thompson, OD’s office, our optician in Las Vegas knows exactly how to measure for contacts and also how to do refractions for eyeglasses.

Those who wear glasses or contacts should have eyes checked every year by our optician in Las Vegas. After age 40 visits should increase to every 2 to 4 years. Blurry vision may indicate the need for a prescription change. Kids should have exams around age 3 and then again before entering school. Routine eye exams are an important part of a child’s health care regimen. We treat patients who have farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism. These conditions are common in many people and can be easily treated with corrective eye devices such as glasses and contact lenses. Our contact lens exams and fittings can be done on site, and you can have a pair of contacts as soon as right after your appointment.

Adults should have an eye exam every two to four years after a baseline eye exam at age 40. Our optician in Las Vegas recommends everyone come in for an annual exam at least once a year if they want, to check on eye conditions, especially if they have eye disease. Depending on the level of vision correction needed, the patient may be a candidate for LASIK surgery, which can completely eradicate the need for eyeglasses or any type of corrective eyewear like glasses or contacts. Symptoms of farsightedness include seeing nearby objects blurry, squinting, eye discomfort, eyestrain, and headache. Those performing close tasks such as writing, reading and computer work may also notice they suffer from eyestrain and aching around the eyes.

Eye health often goes overlooked, especially by people who have perfect vision or no known vision or eye problems. While there are factors that put some patients at higher risk of developing eye conditions or diseases, it is still recommended that all individuals visit their eye doctor about once a year.
