Optometry Services at Austin Vision Center

Our optometric services at Austin Vision Center include comprehensive eye examinations, prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses, cataract and lasik eye surgery co-management, and the treatment of eye diseases including infections, dry eye and glaucoma.  We recommend yearly eye exams, especially for those who have a family history of vision problems and for those over the age of 50.  The sooner we identify an eye problem the sooner we can help you.  Keep in mind that eye conditions are often hidden at first so that you may not realize anything is wrong until you have noticeable symptoms or vision loss.  Our therapeutic optometrists can diagnose eye problems with a routine eye examination.  All around, yearly eye exams are the best way to maintain optimal eye health.

Our eye and vision examinations are comprehensive and include a one-on-one consultation with one of our therapeutic optometrists.  During the consultation your doctor will inquire about your current medications, your personal and family medical history, and they will listen carefully as you describe any visual or eye symptoms that you may be experiencing.  Each one of our vision tests has a definitive purpose.  During the examination your doctor will measure your sight with a reading and wall eye chart and perform a careful refraction to provide you with a prescription for glasses or contact lenses that maximizes your vision capabilities.

Eye function tests will be performed which will evaluate your depth perception, eye muscle performance, peripheral vision and how the eyes are working together.  Using specialized equipment the doctor will examine the external and internal health of the eyes and their structures.  Our internal examination of the eye evaluates for cataracts and includes measuring eye pressure to test for signs of glaucoma as well as a comprehensive evaluation of the retina utilizing state of the art technology.   Our optional Optos retinal imaging provides, without dilation, a detailed picture of your retina that your doctor will review with you at the time of your visit. 

Give us a call today so we can help you see and look your best!
