The expert opticians at Texas State Optical stock a multitude of name-brand eyewear and optometrists examine eyes to diagnose vision and health-related dilemmas. As ocular orbs inspect the transparency of frames, nose bridges meet and greet stylish spectacles from ProDesign ($179–$250) and sun shielders from BCBG and Cole Haan ($149–$179). Purchasers of today's second option can peruse glasses from other makes such as Nike ($187–$205) and Michael Kors ($189–$330) or opt for a comprehensive eye exam ($79), which checks overall vision and eye health. To solve peeper predicaments beyond frame fits, contact-lens exams ($70–$130) prescribe lenses and make sure eyeballs are round. Groupon customers can upgrade their specs with a 25% discount on all lens coatings, including tint, polarization, and thermal vision.
Surrounded by lavender walls, sporting an herbal neck wrap, and sipping on coffee or tea, visitors to Distinct Vision often wonder whether they've stumbled into a spa. Dr. Julia Emery encourages the misconception—she hopes that her patients view their eye-care appointments as a time for relaxation, as well as an opportunity to cultivate their sense of style. She's arranged the boutique area of the office to reflect crisp and quirky fashions. Frames from independent designers perch on glass shelving alongside those of prominent brands including Prodesign and Bebe. The artistic displays incorporate textbooks as props, and decorative plants inject the violet space with playful greenery.
In the exam room, Dr. Emery devotes as much attention to precise prescriptions as she does to hip decor. She checks peepers for general health, common ailments, and infections, doling out glasses and contact lenses for optimal sight enhancement. She can also handle most minor emergencies, from pink eye to the removal of foreign objects and the buildup of tears caused by unrequited crushes.
The board-certified ocular experts at Hill Country Eye Center sharpen vision with LASIK and PRK outpatient procedures to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. After greeting patients with a consultation and a series of coded blinks to set them at ease, the LASIK procedure begins with a laser creating a circular flap on the surface of the cornea. The doctor folds the flap back to allow a cool laser to reshape the cornea, refocusing entering light in a process designed to vastly improve vision and eliminate the need to wear contact lenses and socket-size crystal balls. Alternatively, PRK applies the laser's sculptural powers directly to the surface of the cornea, with no need to cut a flap. Patients can click here to learn more about the procedure.
At ClearChoice EyeCare, Angela Adkins, OD, doesn't just use the latest technology to care for patients' eyes. She also donates her talents to worthy causes. Dr. Adkins has called upon her extensive training in areas such as ocular disease, diabetic retinopathy, and pediatric vision care while working as a volunteer optometrist in Oaxaca, Mexico, and at charitable events for the Lion's Club and St. Louis Community Services. She has also worked as a caregiver for people with physical and mental disabilities, and as a volunteer with the Special Olympics.
After submitting their peepers to Dr. Adkins's careful examination and browsing the store's selection of more than 1,100 frames, patients can wait while technicians in the onsite finishing lab complete same-day orders for glasses. The center also features a separate waiting area complete with toys and a television to entertain children and pacify cranky adults who refuse to share their blocks.
We offer a very personalized, safe and effective approach to LASIK that is unlike and medical experience you have previously had. We want to help you achieve your best visual outcome. Our surgeons include the most experienced in central Texas, with an outstanding record of consistent safety, quality and results.
Optician Bradley Sauceda employs his 25 years of eye-examining experience to astutely assess optical health, educate clients, and recommend solutions. During the no-dilation refraction exam, eyes expose their problems, inner secrets and childhood crushes while strolling a gauntlet of simple tests and examinations. A series of procedures—such as muscle, cover, and manifest-refraction tests—gauge your peepers' performance and ideal prescription, with pupils able to flaunt their particular optical reactions to light.
Dr. Miller and her staff perform services from eye exams and contact-lens fittings to LASIK surgery consultations. Technicians can create brand-new glasses and grow new frames from petri dishes. The center also handles disease management and emergency care to keep eyes in optimal optical health.
