This was my first visit to this location I normally make the trip to San Antonio. After getting reco... mmended by a coworker I decided to try it out. I am glad I did, the staff at the front desk were friendly and professional. Dr. Vielma was very professional and helpful when testing my eyes. He showed me what my new lenses would look like and allowed me to see the chart with them and it definitely made a huge difference compared to my current script. Staff helped me try to find frames and also helped get me the best price. I was told my glasses would be arriving in 2 weeks and I actually got them within 6 days. They came with a hard case, a bottle of lens cleaner and a cloth wipe.

I had an eye emergency—I embedded a microscopic piece of glass in my eye—and was unable to see o... ut of that eye, in severe pain, and scared. Losing my vision is one of my greatest fears. I called EyeTx - Atascosa and despite being fully booked on a Friday, they worked me in. When I arrived, they took me right back and never made me feel like an inconvenience or a work-in. Everyone was knowledgable and efficient. Above and beyond that, they were caring and empathetic. I would strongly recommend letting them take care of your eyes and your vision. Well done, EyeTx, well done.

Myopia Management FAQs

What is myopia management?

Myopia management uses certain treatments and technologies to slow or even halt your child's myopia progression. Our myopia control program in Pleasanton is unique as we have the latest technology and experience to ensure your child's vision remains stable and healthy for years to come.

Is myopia management necessary?

Myopia is more than just poor vision. Childhood myopia raises the risk of developing sight-threatening eye diseases later in life, such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts. Speak to your eye doctor about the best ways to minimize your child’s risk.

At what age does myopia (nearsightedness) usually start?

Myopia can begin as early as 6 and will usually progress until roughly age 20. The longer it progresses, and the higher the prescription, the greater your child’s risk of sight-threatening eye conditions later in life.

When should my child start myopia management?

For optimal results, myopia management should be started as soon as possible. That said, myopia control can help children and teens of all ages.
