Texas Eye Institute is acknowledged as one of the Gulf Coast's premier eye care physician groups. Since 1961 we've dedicated ourselves to building a tradition of excellence in eye care unparalleled in the area.
Patients have given us the compliment of referring family and friends to our practice-their trust in us is an inspiration for our practice to maintain our tradition of excellence. The group's medical expertise, which is available at five convenient locations, covers the spectrum of eye care and specialties, including routine eye exams; LASIK eye surgery, cataract surgery; glaucoma; corneal transplants; retina-vitreous care; pediatrics; different types of laser vision correction and plastic surgery of the eyelids.
Blurred vision refers to a lack of sharpness of vision resulting in the inability to see fine detail. Blurred vision may result from abnormalities such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, or astigmatism that can be improved with corrective lenses (eyeglasses) or it may signal the presence of eye disease.Request an Appointment
Dry eye occurs when the eyes produce too few tears or the tears evaporate too fast. The condition can affect one or both eyes. Lifestyle changes can help, but in severe cases, a person may need medication or surgery.Request an Appointment
A drooping eyelid is also called ptosis or blepharoptosis. In this condition, the border of the upper eyelid falls to a lower position than normal. In severe cases, the drooping eyelid can cover all or part of the pupil and interfere with vision.Request an Appointment
As we grow older, our night vision worsens. We have fewer rods (light-sensitive cells in our eyes that distinguish between light and dark) to detect objects in low light and our eyes' lenses become stiffer and cloudier. Other conditions such as astigmatism can also make it difficult to see at night, affecting peripheral vision and depth perception and worsening glare.Request an Appointment
Halos are bright circles that surround a light source, like headlights. Glare is light that enters your eye and interferes with your vision. Halos often show up when you're in a dim or dark place. Glare is more likely in the daytime. They're a normal response to bright lights, but deeper problems can also bring them on.Request an Appointment
Astigmatism is a common type of refractive error. It means that some part of your eye (either the cornea or lens) is more curved than it should be. This altered eye shape makes your vision blurry. Most cases of astigmatism can be treated with corrective lenses like eyeglasses or contact lenses.Request an Appointment
Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a very common vision disorder that is usually diagnosed before age 20. Myopia affects your distance vision. You can see objects that are near well, but have trouble viewing objects that are far, such as grocery store aisle markers or road signs.Request an Appointment
Inability to see objects clearly from a close distance can be the result of a few conditions. A common vision condition that causes blurry vision up close is called hyperopia, or farsightedness. Farsightedness is typically the result of a flat cornea or short eyeball, which causes light to focus indirectly on the retina.Request an Appointment
You may have heard about laser vision correction and wondered if this procedure would benefit you. LASIK can help you see without total dependence on glasses and contact lenses if you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. The only way to ultimately be sure if you are a LASIK candidate is to schedule an appointment with our office, and we will do a series of diagnostic tests to understand your potential for candidacy.Learn More About LASIK Surgery
Cataract patients now have multiple options to see at both near and far distances after cataract surgery!

If you are seeking the ReSTOR® IOL, we have qualified surgeons waiting to help you see better!Learn More About Cataract Surgery
Dry eye happens when your eyes don't make enough tears to stay wet or when your tears don't work correctly. This can make your eyes uncomfortable, and in some cases, it can cause vision problems. Dry eye is very common — it affects millions of Americans every year. The good news is that if you have dry eyes, you can do many things to keep your eyes healthy and stay comfortable.
Glaucoma is an eye disease called "the silent thief of sight." In the early stages of the disease, there may be no symptoms most people affected by glaucoma may not know they have it. There is no cure for glaucoma—yet. However, medication or surgery can slow or prevent further vision loss. Early detection is vital to diagnose glaucoma and stop the disease's progress.
The cornea is the transparent layer of your eye that covers the iris and pupil and admits light to the interior. Like the crystal of a watch, the cornea is strong enough to protect the inside of the eye from injury yet transparent enough to let light pass through. Corneal problems can happen to anyone at any age due to disease, injury, or infection.
The retina is the light-sensitive tissue lining the back of our eye. The doctors at the Texas Eye Institute take great care in diagnosing and treating problems and diseases of the retina, including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal detachment.
Did you know that children should have their eyes examined by age three? Vision problems, eye injuries, and eyes that wander are all common childhood eye problems. Early treatment by an ophthalmologist, watching for warning signs, and regular visits to the doctor can help protect your child's sight.
"I was surprisingly pleased with how fast everything went from the check-in to the different tests to see the ophthalmologist. The process used to take an hour, and today I was in and out in half an hour. The speed didn't compromise the quality of care I always received at this clinic. I highly recommend them."
"Right from the registration, the staff were very professional and knowledgeable. The waiting time to see the nurse was very short and so also was the time to see the doctor. The entire process from one examination to the next and throughout all the exams were well coordinated."
"The complete Staff overall are excellent and with no doubts will meet every patient's expectations. Dr. Decker is a Lucky Man to have these employee's helping him."
