Cedar Park Eye Care
Dr. McCarty and his office went above and beyond this weekend for our family! My son and husband went to Conroe for a sailboat race and on Saturday my son realized he had left his contacts at home. I contacted Dr. McCarty on his cell phone and he forwarded my emergency request to his staff -- Selina from his office, was nice enough to come in on Saturday (they are closed on Saturdays) and provide a Conroe Optometrist with my son’s prescription and brand. By 11am my husband and son were out on the water sailing with my son in a fresh pair of contacts. AMAZING!!!!I love Cedar Park Eye Care! They are always so friendly and helpful! Dr. McCarty knows eyes, I first started going to him when I could not get my red, irritated eyes to clear up. My General Practitioner thought it was allergies and had prescribed allergy drops, but after getting no relief and actually getting worse, I went to Dr. McCarty and he diagnosed me with Severe Dry Eye and treated me for that. Within a few days my eyes were feeling much better and I was on the road to recovery.

10-29-2014Dr. Restivo did my cataract surgery and I'm exceedingly happy with the results. I had radial keratotomy (RK) surgery years ago and wanted a surgeon with experience in cataract surgery for persons who had had RK operations. Dr. Restivo thoroughly explained the operation, answered all questions, and gave an honest appraisal of what to expect. Detailed written information about the surgery and eye drops were provided. I was impressed with the emphasis on avoiding inflammation.The staff performed the examinations competently and efficiently and insurance claims were processed without issue.Surgeries were performed at the Hill Country Surgery Center which was accommodating and professional.Selecting Dr. Restivo was a good choice.

Hill Country Eye Center
My experience with Dr Restivo left me in a quandary, his ego and his lack of compassion is a disappointment to the medical profession. When I left Hill Country Eye Center I was in shock over the price of the procedure I needed and that did not include the cost for the facility for Dr Restivo to preform it at or the anesthesiologist; which I was left on my own to contact. Being upset I did not think to ask about my prescription for glasses. When I called back later and asked about the prescription for glasses I was told I could pick one up for another $45 or if insurance would not pay for it $75...so yes I am disappointed in Dr Restivo and his staff at Hill Country Eye Center.

Dr. Branch is terrific as is everyone who works there. My only complaint is the long wait time - an hour before I saw the doctor. If you go be prepared to wait (and wait)!!
Tips & Advices
While the first appointment is the most comprehensive, the majority of appointments with an ophthalmologist begin with a basic eye exam followed by a refraction to test if glasses are needed. Other tests might include an eye muscle coordination exam, a check of pupil response and peripheral vision, slit lamp microscope test to look at the anterior segment of the eye, and an intraocular pressure assessment.
Most eye doctors will charge different amounts for their services, but a basic eye exam with an ophthalmologist can range from $50 to $300. Additional tests and treatment will add to the price.
Ophthalmology subspecialties include strabismus/pediatric ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology, retina/uveitis ophthalmology, cornea/anterior segment ophthalmology, ophthalmic plastic surgery, and reconstruction.
Ophthalmologists can diagnose macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, ocular albinism, vitreous traction, cataracts, astigmatism, myopia, retinoblastoma, and many more.
The most popular ophthalmology procedures are cataract, laser eye treatment, and glaucoma surgeries.
