Eye Exams

eyeglasses-679696_1280EYE EXAMS

At the Texas Vision & Laser Center, we believe that complete and thorough eye exams are essential for ensuring a lifetime of healthy vision. When you come in for your complete eye exam, our doctors and staff will obtain a thorough patient history, including your past medical, surgical and ocular histories. We will obtain a list of all of your medications, and record any medicine allergies. You will then receive an eight-point eye exam to check every basic aspect of your vision. This will usually include the use of a dilation drop that will temporarily enlarge your iris so the back part of the eye can be clearly viewed and examined. We invite you to bring your sunglasses for the conclusion of your exam, as the sun bothers some people for the few hours their eyes remain dilated after the exam. We also have disposable shades for your convenience if needed.

Although most people are able to drive home after having their eyes dilated, some people prefer not to. If you think you might feel uncomfortable driving after having your eyes dilated, please be sure and bring a driver with you.

Overview:  Our patient’s health and care remains our top priority.

In response to guidance from local, state and federal authorities, Texas Vision & Laser Center is adapting to the rapidly changing environment in numerous ways including modifying clinic hours, procedures and protocols.

In light of this unprecedented situation, where things are changing rapidly and often, we request that you help us keep patients and our staff safe by: 

Communicating directly with our staff (3 days before your appointment - by phone, text or chat), to ensure that we are open and so we can advise you of new check in protocols.  (Please ignore ‘automatic’ appointment reminders from our office until further notice.)

Calling or texting us if you need to reschedule, so we can have our office staffed appropriately.

Calling and rescheduling if: 

  • You have tested positive or presumptive positive for COVID-19.
  • Anyone you have been in contact with has COVID-19 or has tested presumptive positive for it.
  • You know you have been in contact with anyone who was in contact with someone who has or has tested presumptive positive for COVID-19.
  • You have been out of the state of Texas in the last 21 days.
  • You have been out of the country in the last 21 days.
  • If you have a cough, fever or any other COVID-19 symptom.

The health and safety of our patients and staff is our top priority and you can expect greatly enhanced protocols for reducing the spread of infection including increased disinfection of our office, equipment, furniture etc., limiting the number of people in our office, screening all who enter for fever and other COVID-like symptoms, ensuring social distance and more.

Texas Vision & Laser Center will continue to monitor the situation and do everything in our power to provide service to all our patients who need it, while following the recommendations and guidelines of authorities and medical best practices.
