Errol Grannum M.D.
With my mom, she tried two other eye doctors in the RGV. Both are highly advertised, and she got horrible help at those places. Like the guys doing the eye exam were busy laughing and fooling around instead of paying attention to her and their exam. The other place had the woman eye doctor, and she messed up her exam as well.So we drove from Weslaco to go to Grannum, and we were both very impressed. His staff was on the ball, prompt and polite. Dr. Grannum is awesome! Handsome, shares information the patient would benefit from knowing, and not trying to sell more services. Understands lack of insurance so no unnecessary tests done. I need an eye doctor now, and will go to him, most definitely!

Thurmond Eye Associates
I wrote down the appointment as 1 o'clock instead of 10 o'clock and showed up three hours late. They fit me in - after a three minute wait (I was impressed), did a thorough exam and had me buying my glasses within an hour of my arrival. Very friendly and efficient staff. Very happy with my glasses - my first pair which I have now worn for about a month. My wife is switching to Thurmond.
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.
