Contact Lenses and Eyeglasses Reviews
"I have been going to Stone Oak Ophthalmology for a few years now concerning my contacts, glasses, eye care and retinal needs, and I cannot express how amazing the entire staff is. The office space is always neat and professional; the receptionists and office staff are all immensely friendly, helpful and accommodating in person and on the phone. All of the assistants and techs are tremendously knowledgeable, patient and thorough, ready to answer any questions. Dr. Held always remembers me and my eyes. It's easy to see she really cares about her clients and their eye health. I constantly suggest this place to all of my friends and respected members of the community; all have expressed how considerate, understanding and kind everyone is here. Keep it up! Highly Recommended! 10/5 Stars ⚝⚝⚝⚝⚝⚝⚝⚝⚝⚝"- G.W. / Facebook / Jul 16, 2020
"Dr. Teresa Whitney performed cataract surgery on both my left and right eyes in August 2020, and she did an absolutely AWESOME job! Like many, I was terrified of the procedure, and had deferred it for many years, until I was nearly blind - OK, I was legally blind. With GREAT anxiety, I submitted myself to Dr. Whitney's care, and I emerged from the first surgery absolutely amazed at the results. I was back her table a week later for the other eye, FAR less concerned with both the procedure and the outcome. I am now 20:20 in both eyes, no longer need glasses of any kind, and have for the first in over a decade, had the eyeglass restriction removed from my driver's license! I can honestly say, I'm very sorry that I have but only two eyes, or I'd be a repeat patient. Thank you, Dr. Whitney, for restoring my eyesight!!"- M.D. / Google / Sep 14, 2020
Our team has helped improve the vision of countless patients with prescription glasses and contacts. Many people are surprised at the level of improvement they experience after receiving their new pair of glasses and/or contacts. Your ocular health is important to your overall quality of life and when it's difficult to see, it may be time to schedule an appointment with an eye care professional. We will also help you select glasses and contacts that are best for your specific lifestyle and unique personality.
What to Expect
The first step in acquiring glasses and/or contact lenses is to schedule an eye exam at Stone Oak Ophthalmology Center in San Antonio, TX. Once a comprehensive eye exam is complete and an ocular prescription has been provided, we can help you pick out a new pair of glasses and/or contacts. Our team is well-versed in all the different types of frames and contact lens brands to help you discover the best solution for optimal vision without compromising your unique taste and style. If this is your first time wearing contacts, we will educate you on how to put them on and the best methods for ocular hygiene and cleanliness.
After you select your frames, we will place the order and have them shipped to our office. When they arrive, we will call you to schedule an appointment to have you come in and try them on to ensure a customized fit. Typically, minor adjustments will be needed to ensure your glasses fit comfortably. If you order contacts, we will often teach you how to put them in that same day and provide a few samples so you can try them out first before ordering a large supply. Some patients may go through several types of contacts before determining the best fit for them and once that is decided, they will place an order for contacts. In a few cases, patients may opt for glasses instead of contacts, which is why we encourage patients to try contacts out first before making a final decision.
At Stone Oak Ophthalmology Center, our seasoned ophthalmologists work closely with our optician to ensure the proper care is provided to each of our patients. Our goal is to create a customized vision plan that provides the best vision correction possible while keeping your personal preferences and style in mind. If you think you may need glasses and/or contacts or want to update your frames, call our office in San Antonio, TX today to schedule an appointment.
