Are you due for your next comprehensive eye exam? At the office of Dr. Paul Thompson, the number one Las Vegas eye doctor, we make it a point to emphasize the importance of regular comprehensive eye exams for each and every one of our patients. Having your eyes examined regularly is highly advisable for a number of reasons. Firstly, it ensures that your vision is in tact and that you are seeing as clearly as possible, and if you are not seeing as clearly as possible, it gives our Las Vegas eye doctor the opportunity to give you the treatment you need to do so. Secondly, eye examinations are crucial when it comes to early detection and treatment of common eye conditions, many of which do not present any symptoms outright in the beginning stages, meaning that you would not be able to recognize their development on your own. In these ways, comprehensive eye exams are imperative when it comes to your general health and safety.
During each eye comprehensive eye exam, our Las Vegas eye doctor will use a series of tests and specific examinations in order to do an in-depth analysis of the current state of your vision and overall eye health. Some of these specific tests include: a visual acuity test, a retinal examination, corneal topography, refraction, a slit lamp examination, a cover test, and more. These are all designed to check on certain parts of your eyes, and to evaluate your vision quality. If you use contact lenses or eyeglasses, we will also check on your current prescription and determine if it needs to be updated. Our Las Vegas eye doctor will also evaluate the fit of your contact lenses to make sure they are the right size and shape for your eyes. The entire exam is usually completed in about one hour or less, which is a slim price to pay for the confidence of knowing that your eyes are healthy and seeing clearly.
