At River Place Vision Center in Austin, TX, our team provides advanced care through a variety of eye care services. The foundation of these services is a complete eye exam that tests eye health and vision. We also test for glaucoma, cataracts, and muscular degeneration, and help those suffering from computer vision symdrome, dry-eye syndrome, and other eye conditions. Our optometry team also provides glasses, contact lenses, and pre- and post-operative LASIK care.
An annual or bi-annual eye exam is key to ensuring your eyes are healthy and that you see well. The exam can detect eye diseases and overall health issues, often before you are aware of any symptoms. Our optometry team will conduct a series of tests and evaluations, including vision and eye focusing, movement, and health. We also will suggest any other tests that might be needed to diagnose a particular condition.
Glasses and Contact Lenses
Our experienced optometry specialists can help you select the eyeglass frames that best suit your personality, face shape, lifestyle, and budget, as well as provide your best vision.
Many people prefer the convenience of contact lenses to glasses and we are experts at contact lens fittings, even for those who may have been hard-to-fit in the past because of certain conditions. These conditions include dry eyes, astigmatism, giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC), keratoconus, and presbyopia. Advances in the field of optometry have created a wider variety of lenses, including rigid gas-permeable (RGP), daily-wear soft, extended-wear, extended-wear disposable, and planned replacement. We can discuss these options with you and help you determine which one is right for you.
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is a surgery that changes the shape of the cornea to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses in cases of severe nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. We can determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the surgery, refer you to an eye surgeon, and provide care post-surgery to improve your recovery.
Other Optometry Conditions
We also work with athletes to help them improve their performance through better vision and with those who suffer from eye strain or blurry vision because they spend hours working on a computer. We also provide solutions for those suffering from dry eye, or a condition in which a person lacks sufficient quality tears to lubricate the eye.
