A complete eye exam involves a series of tests designed to evaluate your vision and check for eye diseases which is offered at optometrist Las Vegas. Each test performed by your trusted Lake Mead Optometrists during an eye exam evaluates a different aspect of your vision. Contrary to what many people believe, during a comprehensive eye exam, our eye doctors, Dr. Joseph Eng and Dr. Esther Tan, do much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. Our eye doctors will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. Even if you don’t wear glasses or utilize any other visual aid, it is still important to have your eyes checked on an annual basis at Eastern Avenue Las Vegas Walmart.
Eye examinations are an important part of health maintenance for everyone. Adults should have their eyes tested to keep their prescriptions current and to check for early signs of eye disease. Eye exams for children also play an important role in ensuring normal vision development and academic achievement of all kids. Vision is closely linked to the learning process and children with undetected vision problems often struggle with their schoolwork. However, children will not often acknowledge vision problems because they don’t understand what “normal” healthy vision should feel like. If your child is performing poorly at school, be sure to have his or her eyes examined by an eye doctor who specializes in children’s vision to rule out an underlying visual cause.
