ABout Common Eye Conditions
There are several eye conditions that can impair vision, cause discomfort, and bring about a variety of other unpleasant symptoms. The eye is a complex organ and it is used in practically every single element and task of our everyday lives. Therefore, it is important to receive an eye exam as soon as you experience any symptoms that could be caused by an eye condition. At Nevada Eye Physicians, our eye care doctors use state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and create treatment plans for a wide array of eye conditions. The physicians at Nevada Eye Physicians in our nine Nevada locations have helped thousands of people enjoy better vision to improve their quality of life.
When our vision is clear, it is easy to assume our eyes are healthy and will stay that way. However, the eye is regularly exposed to injury and diseases, such as diabetes, allergies, and viral and bacterial infections that can negatively impact our vision. In addition, as we age, our eyes naturally change. Certain conditions can develop over time, such as cataracts, glaucoma, and retina diseases, in addition to age-related vision loss. In many situations, early diagnosis is the key to successful treatment or on-going management. Our eye care professionals recommend regular eye examinations and regular eye check-ups for early detection of eye conditions and diseases.
"One month ago, I had the PRK procedure performed by Dr. Singh and it has been the greatest decision I have ever made. I am 24 years old and have been wearing glasses since I was in first grade. I live a very active life style going hiking, camping, and playing soccer. Wearing contacts or glasses all the time had become such a hassle that I decided it was time for action. Before my surgery I couldn’t even see the big E on the vision test and now I am happy to say my vision 20/20. Now, I can go hiking without the worry of my contacts falling out and go camping without the worry of forgetting them at home. I am able to see things more clearly than ever. Thank you Dr. Singh and the staff at Nevada Eye Physicians for truly changing my life."- S.S. / Google / May 09, 2018
"My experience with Dr. Rouweyha was top notch both at the hospital where he performed emergency surgery and the follow-up visit at his clinic I gave the staff a 4-star only because of what I felt was a completely inappropriate comment made by a staff member to me regarding another staff member. It was likely meant as a joke, but I didn't think it was a bit funny and felt awkward for the target of the "joke.""- S. / Healthgrades / May 09, 2018

"Dr Singh was very professional and thorough, explaining the operation and what it took care of.Im extremely happy about the outcome I now have 20-20 vision in the eye he operated on. The staff at the office and the surgery center were very polite and empathetic. One satisfied patient and I would highly recommend Dr. Surjeet Singh to anyone who has vision problems."- M.C. / Google / Apr 29, 2018
"He saved my life. I would have gone blind recently had he not helped me.I come from a family of doctors, so my expectations are usually pretty high when dealing with other doctors. I was pleasantly surprised at how knowledgeable he was and how he was able to communicate with me. Great bedside manner. I won't go anywhere else."- J.H. / Healthgrades / Apr 06, 2018
