I went to Galo Optical after reading a review indicating that all prior personnel had been fired, so I expected that they would be focused on customer service. What a disappointment! Unbelievably careless personnel ignore you as you wait endlessly. Had to wait 30 minutes for some nincompoop to go into a side office and fetch my $400 pair of designer glasses, and I wouldn't even have gotten a case for them if I hadn't insisted. It's hard to imagine a more inept staff hell bent on losing business. The checkup and medical care was very good, but I recommend another mass firing for the staff because they are awful. I'll never set foot in that place again!

Highly Recommend!!!!!Great location. Upscale optical clinic and lenses and frames right there to choose from no need to drive around. You get your vision checked and glasses all in one place. Excellent, staff. Physician was very thorough and kind and her at ease personality made me feel very comfortable. I'm not from laredo just a couple of hours away. Guaranteed, I will recommend this office its worth the commute. Your lucky Laredo,Texas.

This doctor once had really bad staff but got rid of everyone. He now has a remodeled office and very professional staff. He goes out of his way to give the best service. Very fast eye exam in and out in less the an hour with the whole family.
Tips & Advices
A regular eye exam focuses on the general health of your eyes, while a contact lens exam is focused specifically on how your eyes react to contact lenses. A contact lens exam tests how well you see while wearing contacts. Your eyes are also evaluated to make sure your tear ducts produce enough tears to allow you to comfortably wear contact lenses.
The cost of contact lenses depends on the type of lens being purchased and the vision problem that is being corrected. For nearsightedness, you'll be able to purchase a box of six lenses for roughly $25. Each lens needs to be replaced after a couple of weeks, which will require you to purchase 10 boxes of lenses each year, for a total of $250 per year. Contact lenses that treat other conditions like astigmatism and presbyopia are more expensive, and can cost $500-$700 a year.
Some people may experience certain side effects when wearing contact lenses. Dry eyes may result, and some people may experience eye or eyelid inflammation. Some contact lens wearers may also develop allergic reactions to the liquid contact lens solution that is used to clean and disinfect the lens.
The cost of an eye exam can range $50-$250 or more. The cost will depend on the tests that are included, and whether the exam involves a contact lens fitting. The cost of the test will also hinge on whether the exam is performed by an optometrist or ophthalmologist.
An eye exam typically takes 20-30 minutes. If additional tests are required, the process could take longer. Eye exams test your sight, but they are also used to make sure your eyes are in good health. During the test, your eye care professional will ask if you've been experiencing any problems with your vision. Your eyes will be examined using a device known as an ophthalmoscope, and the movement of coordination of your eyes will be checked.
