Eye Exams in Las Vegas, NV
Our optometrists with Mallinger Family Eye Care provide exceptional eye and vision care for patients in the Las Vegas area. An integral part of every person’s eye care is regular comprehensive eye exams. Comprehensive eye exams differ from vision screenings because eye exams not only test the patient's visual acuity but also include a comprehensive examination of the eyes and their internal structures, looking for proper function and potential early signs of eye disease and conditions, such as:
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Macular Degeneration
- Detached Retina
In addition to screening for these conditions and others, eye exams give patients the opportunity to address other eye-related concerns, such as digital eye strain and eye allergies, with an optometrist. Comprehensive vision exams typically last about an hour. Exams vary from patient to patient, depending on the patient's age, medical history, and concerns. For example, patients with conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure might be at risk of developing eye conditions which otherwise healthy patients are not. In addition, certain eye conditions are common in childhood, while others develop as a person ages.
