Optometrist Las Vegas

Periodic eye and vision examinations are an important part of preventive health care. Many eye and vision problems have no obvious signs or symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Early diagnosis and treatment of eye and vision problems are important for maintaining good vision and eye health, and when possible, preventing vision loss.

A comprehensive adult eye and vision examination may include, but is not limited to, the following tests. Individual patient signs and symptoms, along with the professional judgment of the doctor, may significantly influence the testing done.

Eye exams are available through several different venues, including an independent eye doctor’s office, the eye department of a multidisciplinary medical clinic, a group eye care practice (optometrists, ophthalmologists or both), and at an optical retailer or optical shop that also offers eye exams by an affiliated optometrist.

The cost of an eye exam can vary significantly, based on where you get your exam and other factors, including:

Whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist
The tests that are included in the exam
Whether the exam includes a contact lens fitting or other contact lens-related services
