Quality eyecare, one eye at a time.

Quality complete eyecare can sometimes be difficult to find, especially, when there are so many choices, each providing a limited service.  That is why we offer a broad range of services, ranging from glasses, routine checkups, and the laser treatment of farsightedness, nearsightedness and astigmatism, to the medical and surgical management of eye diseases caused from allergies, cataracts, diabetes, glaucoma, high blood pressure, macular degeneration, and other diseases.  Additionally, we are the only ophthalmology practice in the Lubbock area that features an M.D. specialist in laser surgery and LASIK, cataract extraction, and corneal surgery.  Finally, we at West Texas Eye Associates , want you to be confident about your eyecare needs.  We take the time to explain all of your questions to your satisfaction, and want you to leave feeling satisfied.
