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

"I recently had cataract surgery by Dr. Surjeet Singh. I had noticed the slow onset of decreasing vision secondary to cataracts for several years. Eventually, I reached a tipping point and my vision rapidly declined. In a very short period of time my vision could no longer be adequately corrected by glasses. I had always considered surgery was something for other people and was extremely uncomfortable with the idea of becoming a patient. After receiving consults locally (and being dissatisfied), I contacted a friend who is a surgeon in the Las Vegas area. The recommendation was unequivocally for Dr. Singh. After my consultation, I understood why. Dr. Singh had my total confidence! To me, the 1500 mile flight was well spent time and money. I scheduled my surgery right away. It was quick and totally painless. There was an anesthesiologist available to provide sedation so that patients will have very little awareness of the procedure. I personally chose local anesthesia (somewhat analogous to what a dentist does), so I was completely aware of the procedure. Unlike in a dental office, there was no discomfort with the “numbing” process. During the procedure there was no pain, no vibration, no startling noises; only a very bright light that diminished over time. After the procedure there was no pain. My vision was immediately better and notably improved from week to week. I had needed glasses for over 30 years. Not anymore! I recently renewed my drivers license and easily passed the vision test without glasses for the first time in over 30 years. I suspect my vision was never as good as it is right now. I personally have two doctorates (Dentist and Physician). I am trained in surgery and anesthesia. I personally recommend Dr. Surjeet Singh without any reservations!"- GS / Office Visit / Jan 28, 2019
"I ADORE him !! He was super gentle and got my lasik done fast and easy and I love how my eyes turned out. He made me feel super comfortable and explained everything out thoroughly so I could heal as fast as possible. Go to him !!!"- J.J. / Google / Jan 04, 2019
"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
There are countless eye conditions that can be treated if caught early. Some conditions and diseases do not have a formal cure; however, they can be managed for years before the condition advances. If you begin to have unusual symptoms (such as itchy eyes, dry eyes, or irritation), or if you have trouble seeing during certain activities, or if you start losing vision, an eye exam is necessary. Using advanced technology, our eye care doctors will be able to pinpoint exactly what is occurring and determine the best treatment plan.
