Patient Reviews

"Personally, Dr. Smith has helped me not simply with traditional eye care wherein I moved from standard lenses to progressives. But he also suggested punctal plugs to ease my dry eye issues & what a difference they’ve made, too! Likewise, Dr. Smith has helped me out when my eyes felt like swollen lumps of sandpaper during the peak of the various allergy seasons here in Central Texas. And, having been a contact wearer for about 2 decades - Dr. Smith has kept me updated with information about the latest in contact lens advancements." - Laura, Google review - Sep. 2021
