At Southwestern Eye Associates, we offer comprehensive eye exams to meet the needs of all of our patients. Dr. McMickle will thoroughly examine your eyes whether you have difficulty seeing at a distance, up close, or both to determine your ocular health.
Southwestern Eye Associates in Las Vegas uses the most modern testing methods and equipment available. We are also committed to educating our patients about their eye health, and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have. It is recommended that children have their first eye exam at about age two. Comprehensive eye exams are essential in the diagnosis and treatment of vision problems, injury, and disease. Early detection allows for treatment to begin before the child experiences difficulty in school due to poor vision, or before any permanent damage has been done to the eye(s).
For adults, regular eye exams are an invaluable tool in maintaining your eyes’ health by detecting and preventing eye disease. Some diseases, such as glaucoma, generally develop gradually without causing pain or noticeable vision loss. Early detection and treatment of eye problems or eye disease can prevent it from causing further damage.
Depending on their age, the risk of disease, and overall physical condition patients should receive an eye exam every one to three years. Dr. McMickle will develop an individualized treatment plan based on your needs if any changes or abnormalities are detected within the eye.
