While it is fairly common for people who have noticed they are having trouble reading small print or distinguishing objects at a distance to schedule a vision exam, Michael Vathanasaynee, OD, your Lake Mead optometrist encourages everyone to have regular vision testing. Having symptoms such as double vision, feeling pressure or eye strain, difficulty seeing while driving at night, headaches and blurriness are additional reasons to set up a comprehensive eye examination as soon as possible. Since many eye diseases and disorders do not present any immediately obvious symptoms, yet can steal your vision if left untreated, we recommend maintaining regular vision and eye screening appointments to ensure your sight and over all healthy eyes are protected.
Your vision exam should consist of multiple aspects that will help your optometrist fully and accurately determine your visual acuity. Different aspects of your vision test will identify strengths or weaknesses at various distances. We will utilize a variety of techniques as well as sophisticated equipment to make our final conclusion. In the case that Michael Vathanasaynee, OD, your Lake Mead optometrist, does discover the need for vision correction via contact lenses or prescription eyeglasses following a thorough vision test, we will provide you with detailed information regarding your condition and recommended course of treatment. At our practice, we encourage patients to ask as many questions as they need to understand their diagnosis and options. Your vision exam will likely include a physical examination of the eye to detect the presence of any abnormalities that can also impact your sight.
