Cataract Surgery at Westlake Eye Specialists

" I live in Fort Worth, TX, I travel to Austin to insure that my eyesight will be there for me to enjoy my grandchildren so Thank you, Dr. Vendal for my 20/20 vision."

Carolyn B. Patient since 2009

"In 2010 I was diagnosed with aggressive glaucoma. In Oct. 2013 I found Dr. Vendal and by Nov. 2013, she performed glaucoma surgery called Canaloplasty. My glaucoma is now under control and I have 20/20 vision."

Melanie R. Patient since 2013

" At age 49 I found it hard to get prescription glasses that would allow me to see comfortably. Dr. Vendal recommended cataract surgery with the TORIC Lens. Without hesitation, it was the best decision I ever made for my eye health."

Joe G. Patient since 2004

Eyelid Rejuvenation Center

As we age, it's normal for us to see changes in the elasticity of the skin and muscles around our eyes. Sometimes it gets to the point where the lid droops enough that it can impact our vision. When that happens, there are procedures that help lift the lid to improve the appearance and to help ensure the patient's vision isn't impacted. These range from Blepharoplasty to Botox Our Oculoplastic specialists can help find the right treatment for you.

Glaucoma Center

Unfortunately, the majority of patients cannot tell if they have glaucoma. This is because, glaucoma robs the eye of its extreme peripheral vision first, and we are not as sensitive to this type of vision loss. Everyone should be screened for glaucoma with vision testing, eye pressure checks and optic nerve examination during a routine visit. Click here to learn more about Glaucoma detection.

In order to maintain decent vision and to keep your eyes healthy you must have routine eye exams.

Westlake Eye Specialists is Your Dry Eye Center of Excellence

Our dry eye team is now offering the latest cutting edge technology for dry eye treatment in Austin, TX. The serious discomfort dry eye causes can now be treated by our expert doctors in our Certified Tear Lab.

Human tears are full of growth factors including cytokines, albumin and vitamins, and not only is Platelet-Rich Plasma made of similar content as natural tears, but it also has no preservatives, stabilizers and additives found in the artificial treatments for dry eye.

Don't let dry eye prevent you from doing what you love. Dry eye syndrome is caused by a chronic lack of sufficient lubrication and moisture on the surface of the eye. Consequences of dry eyes range from subtle but constant eye irritation to significant inflammation and even scarring of the front surface of the eye. For many years, this problem was almost impossible to solve.  Now, however, there is a new weapon called Avenova® that is designed for removal of microorganisms and debris that contribute to these conditions.

There are many over-the-counter options for dry eye treatment, in Austin, TX but most are traditional cleansers derived from man-made chemicals, that can be harmful to you. Fortunately, there’s an all natural, preservative-free lid, lash and facial cleanser that’s safe and easy to use on a daily basis. Westlake eye Specialists is now offering Cliradex® which is formulated with special ingredients to get to the root of your dry eye symptoms.  Cliradex® kills bacteria and alleviates redness and dryness associated with many eye conditions.
