Contact Lenses

Many people will find themselves needing some type of vision aid at some point in their lives. Whether their vision is poor or have conditions to the eye, there are always vision aids on the market that can help you improve your sight. Fortunately, Advanced Eyecare has the right resources to help you improve your vision. Our optometrist in Las Vegas can perform a contact lens exam to determine what kind of contact lenses will benefit you the most.

How Do Contact Lenses Work?

Unlike glasses, contact lenses are designed to fit on the surface of your eye. They are designed to fix refractive issues that your eyes may be experiencing. This can correct your vision and allow you to see properly once again. Contact lenses are oftentimes hardly noticeable and comfortable to wear. They are a more convenient alternative to glasses, and can't normally be detected by people in public. 

Contact Lens Exam

At Advanced Eyecare, we offer contact lens exams to test your visual acuity as well as do a contact lens fitting. Everyone's eye shape is different and there is no one-size-fits-all solution on the market. Be sure to visit us if you are in need of contact lenses. We will be more than happy to perform a contact lens exam to determine the right fit for you, and help restore your vision in no time at all.

Different Types of Contact Lenses

There are different types of contact lenses that are designed to help you improve your vision. As an example, an individual who has astigmatism will need different contacts than a person who has nearsightedness. The importance of the contact lens exam is to help determine the condition of your eye and help you find the one right for you. Our optometrist in Las Vegas will be more than happy to answer any questions that you have on the matter.

Advanced Eyecare Has You Covered

Are you in need of help from a professional optometrist? Advanced Eyecare in Las Vegas, Nevada has the expertise to help you improve your vision to a functional level once again. Give us a call today at 702-737-3937 to schedule your appointment. 

We have been fitting specialty contact lenses for years and have seen some incredible changes in that time. By far the most exciting changes have occurred in the last few years. Although rigid contact lenses are a shrinking segment of the industry, we still have a large number of patients who wear them. The gas-permeable lens materials available today far surpass those available just a few years ago in terms of eye health and comfort.

Allergies can be particularly annoying to contact lens wearers. In the past many people had to quit wearing their lenses for a month or two during the allergy season. New lens materials and allergy medications have made it possible for these people to eliminate itchy eyes. These medications such as Pataday, Zaditor, and Optivar are amazingly effective and safe even in children as young as three.

Alcon manufactures the widest range of contact lenses of any manufacturer in the world.

Vistakon® lenses manufactured by Johnson & Johnson® Vision Care and is known for their ACUVUE® brand of contact lenses.

CooperVision provides a great choice for contact lens wearers worldwide.
