Glasses or contacts are often prescribed to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness or an astigmatism. But as we get older we may find that after years of seeing a certain way, our eyes are still developing and changing. If you’ve always been nearsighted, you may find yourself having trouble reading or seeing things up close, and perhaps you’ve even purchased a pair of reading glasses in addition to the ones you normally use. This condition often happens in older adults and is known as presbyopia. Dr. Michael Vathanasaynee, OD here at our Lake Mead eyeglass store can assess whether progressive lenses might work for you and your developing visual needs.

It’s very common for people over the age of 40 to begin experiencing difficulty seeing things up close. Traditionally, bifocals are prescribed and used to treat patients suffering from presbyopia but the disparity between lens magnifications can be jarring and just as inconvenient and hard to adjust to as switching between two separate pairs of glasses. After assessing the nature of your visual acuity and your visual needs, Dr. Michael Vathanasaynee, OD here at our Lake Mead eyeglass store can prescribe you with progressive lenses. Progressive lenses provide a more seamless progression between magnifications, significantly lessening the disparity in vision. Now you can look up from your book to the clock on the wall across the room without allowing time for your eyes to adjust. Unlike bifocals which feature two distinct distance magnifications in one lens separated by an often visible line, progressives provide a more gradual change in lens strength, putting much less strain on your eyes.

After a visit at our Lake Mead eyeglass store, you’ll be able to see like you never have before. Dr. Michael Vathanasaynee, OD can assess just what type of progressive lens is right for you and prescribe the perfect design that will fit your daily needs. Being able to see at all levels and distances makes transitioning so comfortable that you won’t even notice the difference. Progressive lenses are easier on the eye, and there are different designs that adhere to the activities you normally perform in your usual day-to-day routine. Unlike bifocals, progressives will not age your appearance and will keep your style just as seamless and suitable as your vision.

Lake Mead Eye Exams

Lake Mead Eye Exams

Eye examinations are an important part of health maintenance for everyone. Each test performed by your trusted optometrist, Dr. Michael Vathanasaynee at the Lake Mead Walmart during an eye exam evaluates a different aspect of your vision. In addition to evaluating your eyes for glasses and contacts, our talented opticians will check your eyes for eye diseases and other problems that could lead to vision loss. Here are some examples of the conditions that your Lake Mead Optometrists will be looking for:

Refractive error. This refers to nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. Refractive errors are corrected with eyeglasses, contacts or refractive surgery.

Amblyopia. This occurs when the eyes are turned or when one eye has a much different prescription than the other. The brain will “shut off” the image from the turned or blurry eye. Left untreated, amblyopia can stunt the visual development of the affected eye, resulting in permanent vision impairment. Amblyopia is often treated by patching the stronger eye for periods of time.

Strabismus. Strabismus is defined as crossed or turned eyes. The examiner will check your eyes’ alignment to be sure that they are working together. Strabismus causes problems with depth perception and can lead to amblyopia.

Eye teaming problems. Even if you eyes appear to be properly aligned, it’s possible they do not work together efficiently as a team. Suchbinocular vision problems can cause headaches, eye strain and other problems that can affect reading and other near vision tasks.

Focusing problems. These problems can range from incompletely developed focusing skills in children to normal age-related declines in focusing ability (presbyopia) among older adults.

Eye diseases. Many eye diseases, such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, have no symptoms in their early stages. Your Lake Mead Nevada eye doctor will check the health of your eyes inside and out for signs of early problems. In most cases, early detection and treatment of eye diseases can help reduce your risk for permanent vision loss.

Other diseases. Eye doctors can detect early signs of some conditions and diseases by looking at your eye’s blood vessels, retina and so forth. Your Lake Mead Nevada eye doctor, Dr. Michael Vathanasaynee, may be able to tell you if you are developing high blood pressure, high cholesterol or other problems.
