More About Las Vegas

Las Vegas is the biggest city in Nevada and 26th largest city in America. According to the 2020 census, the town’s population is 644,594. It is located in Clark County in the desert climate of Nevada. The Los Angeles and Salt Lake railroad connected Las Vegas to all the major railroad networks in 1905, paving the way for incorporation in 1911. As infrastructure began to develop in the area, construction workers found entertainment on the city’s only paved portion: Fremont Street, filled with casinos and show lounges. The Hoover Dam building brought in countless workers and caused the growth of these businesses to erupt. Starting in the 1940s, resorts began to pop up around the town. A native of Las Vegas himself, Dr. Swanic is proud to provide clearer vision in the town in which he was born and raised.  Whether you are a Vegas resident or here for tourism, LVEI is here to serve your vision correction needs. We’ve had people make a trip of it taking a Las Vegas vacation where they come to get LASIK, stay in a Las Vegas hotel, and enjoy the city with their brand new vision. Among the city’s well-known attractions today are the Strip, the Fremont Street Experience, the Strat tower, and the Motor Speedway. Check these sites out with your new vision from LVEI!

Las Vegas Geography

Nevada is the third most seismically active state in the United States, after Alaska and California. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), there is a 10–20 percent chance of an M6.0 or greater earthquake occurring within 50 kilometers (31 miles) of Las Vegas in the next 50 years. Many grass, trees, and other greenery may be seen around the city. Because of the scarcity of water, there has been a push to promote xeriscapes. Scheduled watering days for residential landscaping are another aspect of conservation initiatives. A program that examined and forecasted growth and environmental implications until 2019 was financed by a grant from the US Environmental Protection Agency in 2008.
