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.
"Very friendly staff. My hopes were very high and my expectations were exceeded by the end result. Our doctor was personable and professional. He supplied me with detailed explanations. Scheduling was easy. Having 20/20 vision in an eye that was blurry is the highlight of my vacation."- D.P. / Google / Mar 18, 2018

"5 Stars and more! 7:20 AM, early morning Christmas Eve, I phoned NV Eye Physicians, Dr. Chinichian was on duty. My problems: a red sore eye, a flight out of town in 2 days, and offices closed for the holidays. He had a detailed conversation with me, then had me send photos of my eye to him. He soon phoned me back with his diagnosis, advised me what to do, and assured me that it was OK for me to fly as planned. So, 5 Stars ++ for Dr. Chinichian!"- G.G. / Healthgrades / Dec 25, 2018
"Dr. Vincent Gassen is an extremely efficient and highly skilled Opthamologist and truly shows that he cares for his patients. He is knowledgeable and takes the time needed to answer any questions patients have and to fully explain what is happening when we have vision problems. He has the needed tests done and his staff is kind as well. I am thankful to have Dr. Vincent Gassen as my Opthamologist since I have diabetes and trust him in every way! May God bless him and his assistants always!"- C.A. / Healthgrades / Dec 21, 2018
