Ophthalmologists & Eye Doctors in Austin, TX
Located in The Westlake Medical Center, Austin’s top ophthalmologists and eye doctors at Westlake Eye Specialists provide a wide range of eye care services. Some of our services offered include:
Cataracts may occur as a part of old aging; these are called Age-Related Cataracts. However, cataracts can also appear in babies as an infection they had before birth; this type of cataract is called Congenital Cataracts. Cataracts can also occur due to other diseases like diabetes, exposure to UV light and radiation, eye injury, and more. Cataracts tend to form slowly and without noticeable symptoms. The best way to stay ahead of cataracts is to have routine eye exams to ensure you’re not developing them. If you think you may be at risk for developing cataracts, request an appointment today to discuss possible treatment options!
One of the possible treatment options for cataracts is Laser Cataract Surgery. Laser Cataract Surgery replaces the eye’s natural lenses with artificial ones. These artificial lenses are called intraocular lenses or IOLs. Depending on which IOL is suitable for you, your vision could be better than ever following cataract surgery! If you’re curious about what IOL might be right for you, take our Premium Lens Self-Test today!
The cornea is a significant player in how the eye focuses on images. If the cornea becomes damaged or a condition arises, serious visual issues may occur. Some of these issues may include Keratoconus, Corneal Scarring, Fuchs Dystrophy, Shingles & Dry Eyes. If you think you may be suffering from a cornea disorder or injury, contact us today!
Glaucoma is often referred to as the “silent thief of sight” and shows little to no symptoms before it’s too late. Glaucoma is usually caused by elevated eye pressure, damaging the nerve fibers in the optic nerve. Acting as one of the leading causes of preventable blindness globally, glaucoma is mainly detected and diagnoses through eye exams and specific tests. The best way to prevent glaucoma is through routine eye exams. If diagnosed, early glaucoma can be treated; however, it becomes untreatable if it progresses past an early diagnosis.
A variety of different reasons can cause Dry Eye Syndrome. Because of this, there is a large selection of treatment options. Based on your specific needs, we can prescribe the perfect treatment for your condition. Some of these treatments include LipiFlow & TearCare, IPL Therapy, and PROKERA & PRP for Dry Eyes.
LASIK is a widely popular procedure that can correct many refractive errors and reduce your dependency on glasses or contact lenses. LASIK is safe, painless, and effective for those looking for these results. However, not everyone who wants LASIK may qualify for it. Many factors go into deciding whether or not you may be a good candidate for LASIK, such as age, health, prescription stability, cornea thickness, and more. To find out if you’re a candidate for LASIK, feel free to take our LASIK self-test today!
There are tons of eye disorders and diseases that may not show symptoms until severe damage has occurred. It’s crucial to have routine eye exams to stay ahead of partial or permanent vision loss and ensure your eyes are healthy beyond what your vision may show. Contact us today to schedule a thorough eye exam!
