If you have not had a comprehensive eye exam in over a year, you should visit us at our top-notch vision practice, Michael Vathanasaynee, O.D. Our optometrist will be able to diagnose any eye problems you may have, including retinal tears, and let you know whether or not you need retinal tears treatment in Vegas; our eye doctor can also let you know why your eyes are tearing excessively, if this indeed is a problem, as well.
During our comprehensive eye exams, our eye doctor will thoroughly screen your eyes for many different eye diseases and disorders. It is important that you come in to see our doctor on a yearly basis, or more often if needed. If your eyes are tearing excessively this can be a sign of dry eye, eye allergies, an eye infection, or other eye problems. Our eye doctor will determine what the cause is for your excessively tearing eyes. As part of our eye exam, our eye doctor will view the inside of your eye, and be able to see clearly back to your retina. Our optometrist will be able to determine whether or not you have any retinal tears, and if there is any need for retinal tears treatment in Vegas. When a patient has a retinal tear it means that a layer of the tissue from the back of the eye has pulled away from the tissue around it. You are more likely to get a retinal tear if you are severely nearsighted, have had eye trauma or cataract surgery, or have a family history of retinal detachment. Signs that you are developing a detached retina, which can result from a retinal tear, include flashes of light, seeing new floaters in your vision, or a darkening of your peripheral vision. Any of these symptoms call for an immediate need to see our eye doctor on an emergency basis.
