Do you see children?
We see children ages four and older for routine eye exams and screenings. If your child requires more complex treatment or certain surgical interventions, then a referral will be made to a pediatric ophthalmology specialist.
What should I expect during my exam?
Bring your current contact lenses and glasses. A complete new patient exam will typically include a dilated exam, which may take a little longer to allow the eyes to dilate. This will help us deliver a more thorough exam, by enabling us to look carefully at the back of the eye for any medical issues. This should take about 1-1.5 hours. Until the dilation resolves, eyes may be sensitive to bright lights. Protective eye shades can be given to wear after your visit.
How long does it take before my pupils return to normal?
Everyone is different, but generally dilated pupils return to normal within 4-6 hours.
What is a refraction?
Refraction is the procedure performed to determine the power of glasses and/or contact lenses. Your insurance may or may not cover the cost of this procedure.
What is a cataract?
The lens in our eye is normally clear to allow the light coming from an image to pass through. When the lens becomes cloudy during the development of a cataract, vision loss occurs. To learn more about Cataracts click here.

What's the difference between ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians?
Ophthalmologists differ from optometrists and opticians in their level of training, and in what they can diagnose and treat. Ophthalmologists are medical doctors who have completed college and at least eight years of additional medical training. An ophthalmologist is licensed to practice medicine and surgery. Round Rock Eye works cooperatively with eye care professionals throughout the area.
