"I am so please that I was recommended to this office as well to Dr. Allison Young. The office and the personal are professional and cheerful. I have Sjögren’s Syndrome which drys everything in your body. I honestly though I was going blind and I was seeing another ophthalmologist in a huge chain operation and it seems like I was going in every three months. I honestly couldn’t see. Dr Young saw me on the first visit and explained that I had a very large cataract in my right eye and it needed to be removed. I was extremely petrified but Dr. Young has the type of additive you want every Doctor to have. It was such an easy operation for me, Dr. Young said that it was so big it took her awhile to get it out. The difference was amazing I see amazing I was so amazed how little I was seeing before. So excited to get the other eye done. The after care was just as through as the pre-op. I recommend this Ophthalmology Center and Dr. Young. Today is January 8th of 2021 and the day before this I had a very gritty feeling in my right eye when I woke up. Just thinking it was my Sjogren's I put in the eye drops and it helped but I had double vision for the day. Knowing I could call Stone Oak Ophthalmology and find out if I need to see a Dr or just find out what I could do. They wanted to get me in but I live a across town and they got me an appointment right away the next day. I saw Dr. Whitney and just like Dr. Young, she took her time took the tests (she explained each test and her reason for taking them) and ended up finding out that I had Shingles in my right eye. I was then told it was a very good thing that I came in because it could be worse the longer you wait. I trust this office and my eye health whole heartily. I have always been treated with respect, professionalism, COVID responsible and I know my appointment was done to it's fullest to help both of us to understand what is happening with my eyes. Again I was afraid my eyesight was going to be gone and I have walked in there and them out knowing everything was being done that could be done. I also got to meet another one of these wonderful Doctors. Thank you Dr. Whitney, I'm not thrilled with having Shingles but thank you for informing me that getting the Shingles Shot is not a 100% it just makes it less infectious. I maybe miserable but it could of been a lot worse with out your insisting we do the testing and your hands on care it could be worse. If you are someone who needs an Ophthalmologist this is the group to go to."- R.P. / Google / Jan 08, 2021

How Do RxSight Light Adjustable Lenses Work?
Because the RxSight Light Adjustable Lens is made from advanced light-sensitive material, its shape and power can be modified using UV (ultraviolet) light. These lenses are implanted into the eye the same way other IOLs are, with a quick 15-minute surgery that makes a small incision in the side of the cornea.
First, your eyes will be numbed to prevent any discomfort during the procedure. A small incision is made in the side of the cornea to remove the cataract. After this, the RxSight lens is inserted into the opening to replace the old, damaged natural lens. In the following weeks, Dr. Young or Dr. Waters will customize your vision with about 3 – 5 light treatments over a 1 – 2 week period. Once you've achieved optimal vision, a final treatment locks in your results. This can deliver amazing outcomes that other traditional IOLs simply cannot match.
Am I A Candidate For RxSight Light Adjustable Lenses?
Ideal candidates to receive the RxSight Light Adjustable Lens include patients who need cataract surgery and also may have refractive errors like myopia, hyperopia, or presbyopia (age-related vision loss). Typical candidates should also want to treat their cataracts and achieve clearer vision with less reliance on glasses and contacts. They should have good overall eye health (besides their cataracts) and realistic expectations of their treatment. During your consultation at our San Antonio, TX practice, Dr. Young or Dr. Waters will examine your eyes and ocular health to determine if RxSight Light Adjustable Lenses are right for you.
