Are you tired of your cumbersome eyeglasses constantly getting in the way of your life? While eyeglasses are one of the simplest ways to correct you vision, they can often get in the way, especially if you enjoy an active lifestyle. If you are curious about different manners of optical correction that can give you the visual clarity you long for in a whole new way, simply visit your local Las Vegas optometrist. You can find out everything you need to know about your vision needs and prescription contact lenses with a contact lens exam from the state of the art offices of Dr. Paul Thompson.
Contact lens exams are greatly different from a traditional vision exam for eyeglasses, as they must work to investigate and measure the unique differences that prescription contact lenses pose as opposed to the ways in which eyeglasses are crafted. The most commonly diagnosed vision problems which many of us suffer from, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism are caused by our eyes growing into an improper shape. Perfect vision happens when an eye is perfectly round and the corneal curve works to allow light to enter our eyes exactly through the retina, where the information light carries is brought to the optic nerves and translated by the brain as a clear image. Eyeglasses work to correct this by sitting over our eyes and refracting the light properly through proper positioning over pupil. Contact lenses work to do so by sitting directly on the surface of your eye, where they work create the proper shape your eye should be in to see clearly. While most of us can receive vision correction through soft contact lenses, those who suffer from more severe vision problems such as high levels of astigmatism or keratoconus, may benefit from greater visual clarity by using rigid gas permeable lenses. At a comprehensive contact lens examination your professional Las Vegas optometrist will utilize the latest technology in order to examine the physical health of your eyes as well as your level of vision correction to determine which type of contact lens is right for you. Contact lens exams also work to measure the exact curvature of the cornea to insure an exact fit, while testing to insure your tear content will allow you to wear your lenses comfortably for clear and reliable vision.
