At our practice, you can get an expert contact lens exam and fitting and also purchase contact lenses Las Vegas NV; our top-notch optometrist is Dr. Paul Thompson.

When you have a contact lens exam and fitting at our office, your eyes will be thoroughly screened for any eye diseases or disorders. Among the many eye diseases that your eyes will be examined for are: macular degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; glaucoma; cataracts; retinal tears; dry eyes; and other problems of the cornea, macula, and retina. Your eyes will also be checked to determine exactly what type of refractive error you have, which may include astigmatism, nearsightedness, or farsightedness. Once your eye exam is complete, our eye doctor will let you know which type of contact lenses should work best for you. Even if you have astigmatism or dry eye, there are now specialty contact lenses which will allow you to safely have your vision corrected with contacts. Today most people wear soft contact lenses because they are extremely comfortable and easy to get used to. However, we also still offer rigid gas permeable lenses, also known as hard lenses; some patients still receive better vision with these lenses. Soft contact lenses can be daily wear, extended wear, disposable, or color changing, to make it appear as of the color of your eyes have changed. We also offer multifocal contact lenses and monovision contacts. Contact lenses Las Vegas NV can also be conveniently purchased at our vision practice.

Contact lenses provide a more natural vision than eyeglasses. They also allow you to preserve your facial appearance with no alterations. Our contact lenses in Las Vegas NV are available in both soft and rigid gas permeable. Furthermore, we do contact lens exams and fittings, to ensure that your experience wearing them is as positive as possible.

Soft contact lenses come in a variety of types to suit your needs. There are daily wear, which can be kept in all day and then removed before bed so you can clean and prepare them for the next day. Extended wear lenses can be kept in overnight, giving you more flexibility in how you wear them. Disposables give you the convenience of not having to clean them. You simply wear them once and then discard them. Nothing could be easier. And with color-changing, our contact lenses in Las Vegas NV go beyond vision correction, letting you indulge your fun side with a whole new eye color. You can even wear them with no prescription in them at all; just as a fashion accessory. With all those possibilities, why even consider rigid gas permeable? Well, although they require more time to get used to, they are the most beneficial for severe nearsighted and astigmatism. They also provide sharper and clearer vision than soft lenses do. And with bifocal and multifocal options, we have everything you require with our contact lenses in Las Vegas NV. A contact lens exam and fitting is done first to check the parts of your eyes that touch the lenses: the corneas, conjunctiva, and eyelids. We want to put the odds in your favor to avoid irritation or infections when you wear them. Fittings make certain that your contacts are comfortable and that they are sitting in the ideal position to give you maximum vision correction.

The eye is a very special part of the human anatomy. To make sure that your eyes stay in excellent health you should visit our vision practice, Dr. Paul Thompson, for periodic eye exams. Our optometrist Las Vegas NV, Dr. Paul Thompson, can provide you with comprehensive eye exams to screen your eyes for many common eye diseases and disorders.

The eye is the part of our anatomy which allows us to see. Our optometrist Las Vegas NV will help to keep your eyes in excellent health. The eye is about one inch in diameter. When you look at the eye, the colored part that you see is the iris. Covering the iris is the cornea; the cornea is a clear dome that completely covers the front of the iris. Inside the circle formed by the iris is the pupil. The pupil is the black opening in the iris that lets the light come in. Another name for the white of your eye is the sclera. The conjunctiva is the thin layer of tissue that covers the front of your eye, except for the cornea. When this part of the eye becomes inflamed or irritated you have conjunctivitis. Behind the iris and pupil is the lens. The lens will focus light onto the back of your eye, where the retina is found. Most of the eye is filled with a gel like substance called the vitreous. The retina is the inside lining of the back of the eye, and is made up of light-sensing cells. Together these cells are referred to as the retina. The cells in the center of the retina form the macula and are responsible for detail and central vision. Behind the eye is the optic nerve. The optic nerve carries the light impulses to the brain. Your eye color is made up by the pigment in your iris. This eye color is determined by different gene combinations that you inherit.
