Why Choose Optical Effects Vision Center?

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.

Medical Services

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!
