Eyeglasses in Southwest Las Vegas
At Optical Effects we offer a wide range of quality eyewear from luxury brands like Prada, Jimmy Choo and Versace to the more sporty styles of Ray Ban and Oakley and also more affordable options like Nine West, Calvin Klein and Juicy Couture. All of our frames come with a 1 or 2 year warranty.
Our Las Veges practice handles Cataract and LASIK surgery and we work with the best surgeons in the area. We also have a large dry eye practice since Las Vegas is a dry town, and a lot of our patients have dry eye symptoms, ranging from mild to severe. There are a lot of treatment options from artificial tears, punctal plugs to Restasis.
We highly recommend daily disposable contact lenses as they are the healthiest option, maintenance free, and you don’t have to keep track of how many times you’ve worn each pair. Most corrections can be accommodated with a daily lens. We also fit a lot of multifocal contact lenses. These are high tech visual devices that allow patients to see most things most of the time, and they especially help nearsighted baby boomers!

Are There Different Kinds of Glaucoma?
Open-Angle Glaucoma, the most common type of glaucoma, is caused by the slow clogging of the drainage canals, resulting in increased eye pressure. “Open-angle” means that the angle where the iris meets the cornea is as wide and open as it should be. Angle-Closure Glaucoma has a closed or narrow-angle between the iris and cornea, it develops very quickly, with noticeable symptoms and damage.

Multifocal Contact Lenses: The Next Solution
How is Glaucoma Detected?
Only a comprehensive eye exam can reveal whether or not you have glaucoma. An examination of the retina—the light sensitive area at the back of the eye responsible for processing images is the only way you will know you have glaucoma. Contact your Optical Effects Vision Center eye doctor today to schedule your exam.
Diabetics Benefit with an Annual Eye Exam
Diabetics are prone to developing a number of eye issues such as cataracts (a clouding of the eye’s lens); glaucoma, that damages the optic nerve, macular edema, and macular degeneration. Most notably, diabetes can result in diabetic retinopathy, an eye disease that affects the blood vessels in the all-important retina. Nearly 45 percent of Americans diagnosed with diabetes have some stage of diabetic retinopathy.
