 Contacts Lens vs Traditional Glasses Advice by Kopolow & Girisgen Doctors of Optometry 

Kopolow & Girisgen Doctors of Optometry, your eyeglasses and contacts provider in Las Vegas, NV, offers advice about both prescription types. We will thoroughly examine your eyes to help you decide which corrective eyewear would most help you see clearly both near and far again.

The Preliminary Eye Exam with Comprehensive Testing 

We always make sure you have undergone an eye exam before you choose your contacts or glasses. This includes vision acuity tests that measure near and far vision, and we evaluate how well your eyes work together and independently from one another. In addition, we will determine if you have cataracts or nearsightedness, astigmatism or farsightedness.  

Retinal observations and optic nerve checks also help us alert you of other conditions including diabetes, macular degeneration or hypertension. We also look for undiagnosed vision problems such as amblyopia or strabismus in children before fitting for eyeglasses or contact lenses. 

How Your Las Vegas Optometrist Fits Patients for Eyeglasses 

We prescribe glasses according to how you see at certain distances from the point at which your glasses rest on your face. The frames we recommend for you also fit on your face without falling. Your Las Vegas optometrist also considers conditions requiring polarized, bifocal, multi-focal, sunglasses or another.  

How Your Las Vegas Optometrist Fits Patients for Contact Lenses 

We examine your cornea shape and use the information we just gathered from your comprehensive eye exam. If you need hard-to-fit contacts, we will recommend lens customization. In addition, we will determine if you have dry eyes and will provide sources of drops or lenses that make dry-eye contacts more comfortable. Our Las Vegas optometry center also provides rigid gas permeable, soft or cosmetic lenses and more.
