Eye Exams

To maintain good vision and to keep your eyes healthy, it is important to have routine eye exams. For those with stable vision and without any eye disease, having routine eye exams every two years is important.

The service is exceptional. Dr Marten is an amazing doctor. She helped me with an eye injury a few years ago and so I trusted her to carry out my LASIK procedure recently. Dr Marten and the team have done a great job and my vision is better than when I had glasses before the surgery. I would highly recommend South Texas Eye Institute.
