If you are looking for a vision practice where your child can receive a complete eye exam, you will want to make an appointment for your child to come in and see our expert optometrist, Dr. Paul Thompson. Our Las Vegas NV kids optometrist can provide a complete eye exam for your child, while your child remains relaxed and comfortable.

If your child is having trouble seeing at school, do not be surprised if they do not mention this to you. It is very common for children to simply not tell their parents that they are having vision problems. And, even if your child’s school provides a vision screening, it will only check to make sure that your child is able to see the front of their room, where the teacher is. A vision screening at school will not screen your child’s eyes for many different types of problems or eye diseases. It is important that children’s eyes are examined periodically by our Las Vegas NV kids optometrist not only to make sure that they can see clearly, but also to ensure that their visual systems are developing properly. If your child does have a vision problem such as strabismus or amblyopia, the sooner the problems is found and treated, the more likely it is that your child will be able to easily overcome these vision problems. Our eye doctor can also completely test your child’s refraction to make sure that he or she is seeing clearly. All refractive errors, including astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness can be corrected with prescription eyeglasses. Contact lenses are also now available for children, however, it is important that the child can learn to insert or remove the contact lenses, and understands the need for impeccable hygiene whenever touching their eyes. At our vision practice, we offer a complete selection of designer eyeglass frames, for both children and adults.

It is very important to have comprehensive eye exams on a periodic basis to make sure that you do not have any hidden eye diseases or disorders. Many times serious eye diseases do not have any obvious symptoms in the early stages, so people are not aware that they have them. However, there are other times when a patient experiences vision problems which can be symptoms of a serious eye problem. Whenever you have a change to your vision it is critical that you come in to see our Las Vegas eye doctor to make sure you are not experiencing any vision problem which can cause permanent vision damage. When it comes to treating eye problems, and preventing possible vision loss, time is of the essence

At our vision practice, our expert optometrist is Dr. Paul Thompson. Often times, eye conditions which are not serious at all can mimic more serious eye conditions. For this reason, it is always critical that patients come in to our practice, Dr. Paul Thompson whenever they experience vision problems or unusual eye occurrences. If you have blurry vision, there can be many reasons for this change. Blurred vision can be caused by dry eye which is a condition which is often brought on by allergies or hormonal changes. Many patients over 60 experience dry eye. Dry eye is a condition which can be easily treated with over-the-counter or prescription eye drops. However, if left to progress untreated for a long period of time, dry eye can cause permanent vision damage to the cornea. Blurred vision can also be a symptom of many other vision problems. Blurred vision can be caused by cataracts, glaucoma, or even by diabetic retinopathy. In some of these cases immediate vision treatment may be needed in order to save your eyesight. This is why you will always want to come in to see our Las Vegas eye doctor when you are experiencing vision problems.

If you are experiencing eye redness, or itchiness, it can be that you have conjunctivitis. This eye infection is very common and extremely contagious. It is always important to have this condition treated so that it can easily clear up and not cause any more involved vision problems. If you see a sudden increase in floaters accompanied by some type of sudden vision loss, you may be experiencing a retinal tear or detachment. This type of eye problem calls for the immediate attention of our Las Vegas eye doctor. If you have headaches brought on by eyestrain, our optometrist will be able to help you as well with a new lens prescription.
