Eye exams are very important not only for determining vision acuity, but also for seeing if there are any eye diseases or conditions that are developing within the eye. It is equally important for young and old to have eye exams. Often, if a young child is having trouble seeing at school, he or she will not even think to mention this to his or her parents. Instead, they will just continue on, day after day, being unable to see the blackboard or even their books and papers. This in turn will have a poor effect on their grades, and has even been known to cause bad behavior at school. When your child comes to our office for Las Vegas eye testing, Dr. Thompson will be able to determine if there are indeed any vision problems that are making it difficult for your child to see. He will also be able to determine whether or not your child’s eyes and vision are developing normally for their age and in a healthy manner.
During a comprehensive eye exam, your eyes will be checked for the following conditions and diseases: nearsightedness; farsightedness; astigmatism; macular degeneration; cataracts; glaucoma; diabetic retinopathy; and other important conditions of the eye. Dr. Thompson will also apply special eye drops that cause the pupils to dilate so that he can see in to the back of your eye. This way he can observe the retina and surrounding blood vessels for signs of disease. Also, should you want to purchase contact lenses, Dr. Thompson will be able to perform a full contact lens exam, which will include performing several tests and measurements to make sure that your new contacts will fit perfectly, and provide perfect vision for you. So if you or members of your family are due for their eye exams, contact our office to get an appointment for Las Vegas eye testing.
