Texas Eye is excited to offer TELEMEDICINE appointments to all patients. We know how stressful this time can be knowing that you have limited access to your medical team. Although we cannot perform many of the tests that you may still need at a later time, you can still schedule a virtual appointment with your doctor to review your current condition, symptoms, and treatment options until you are able to visit us again in person. Please contact us.
