Why You Need Comprehensive Eye Exams
Looking for an eye exam near you?
At YESnick Vision Center, your eye doctor in Las Vegas focuses on your vision and eye health. Just as a physical exam checks the overall condition of your body, our comprehensive eye exam checks the health of your visual system.
Even if you have no complaints – your eyes feel great and your vision is sharp – you still need routine examinations! Read on to know all the reasons we encourage our patients to schedule regular eye exams with Dr. David Yesnick, in our leading Las Vegas, NV, eye clinic.
More than Just Vision Screening
Many of our patients undergo basic vision screening at the pharmacy or in school in Las Vegas and Summerlin. Make no mistake – these evaluations of your visual acuity do not replace thorough eye exams performed by an eye doctor!
Vision screening generally involves having you read an eye chart at various distances. While it can detect your need for eyeglasses or contact lenses, it doesn’t assess ocular health.

Detection of Eye Disease by an Eye Doctor Near You in Las Vegas
Many common eye diseases, such as macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy, do present symptoms during the beginning stages. By the time you notice symptoms of these serious conditions, they have advanced to a late stage, and treatment is often less effective. The only reliable way to detect eye disease at the beginning is through a professional, detailed eye exam. And the earlier we diagnose your eye disease at our eye clinic in Las Vegas, the more helpful treatment will be in preventing vision loss!
Eye Exams Can Keep Your Body Healthy
Did you know that a comprehensive eye exam can save your life? When Dr. Yesnick inspects your retina and ocular tissues, he may spot the signs of hypertension, high cholesterol and diabetes. These life-threatening diseases often impact eye health – even before you know you have them.
Low Vision Consultation
Dr. Yesnick specializes in evaluating and treating Low Vision. If you have vision loss, such as from macular degeneration, cataracts, or retinitis pigmentosa, we will perform a Low Vision Eye Exam and Evaluation to determine whether you are a good candidate for rehabilitation. Depending upon the results of your eye exam, we will recommend Low Vision Aids, such as customized glasses to help you do the things you love in life.

Do you do eye exams for Kids and Adults?
Our optometrists provide eye exams and contact lens exams for patients of all ages. Our practice has the latest technology to ensure that no matter what you are getting a full comprehensive eye exam that assesses not only what prescription glasses you need, but also addresses all aspects of your eye health and preventative care to ensure great eyesight for years to come. Because our practice is also the leading low vision practice in the state of Nevada, we have technology that is often not part of a standard eye exam that allows our Las Vegas optometrists to see more and provide advanced care. Our optical also has a great selection of contact lenses for all types of patients and glasses for children and adults.
Are Cheap Eye Exams or Online Eye Exams Different?
One of the questions our Las Vegas Optometrists hear all the time is "what is the difference between an eye exam at your eye care clinic verses an eye exam done online or done at a budget optical?"
Dr. Yesnick explains:
" At a budget optical or an online eye exam, the goal is to get your prescription as quickly as possible so that they can make money of you buying glasses. Many times they will even provide the eye exam as a loss in order to get you through the door. In some cases they will even show you that you can get glasses for real cheap, only for you to realize that the cheap glasses are limited to old models with inferior quality or are not available in the prescription that you need. At our Las Vegas eye care clinic and optical, our goal is total eye care, sure our optometrists will provide you with an updated prescription, however that is just the beginning of our eye exam, we also check for eye diseases, provide insight into how you can prevent vision issues, and take the time with each patient to fully explain all aspects of their eye health, so that you walk out empowered for a lifetime of excellent vision. What most people do not realize is that even the online eye exams say in fine print that this is not a replacement for an annual comprehensive eye exam. If there is one thing we should not look for the cheapest option, that is our eyes, we rely on our eyes for school, work, and pretty much every aspect of our lives, poor vision or bad habits that lead to poor vision as you age, are just not worth the trade of to save a few dollars today."
