Refractive Lens Exchange

Using the latest intra-ocular lens technologies, we can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism to help reduce or eliminate your dependence on wearing glasses or contact lenses using a procedure identical to cataract surgery.

The best way to catch glaucoma before significant vision loss is by regular dilated eye exams. We offer the latest diagnostic technology to identify glaucoma damage as early as possible to preserve your vision for years to come.

Dry Eye Syndrome

Dry eye syndrome can often be overlooked but is a common condition for many people who live in the Texas Panhandle. We can help relieve you of constant eye irritation and improve your vision.

Dry eye


This is a noncancerous growth typically found in the inside or outside corner of your eye that can grow across the ocular surface causing irritation, redness, and vision loss.  A surgical procedure can be performed to remove this growth safely restoring a more natural ocular surface and improving vision and comfort.

Patient Stories

The staff is just great! Everyone is so wonderful and nice. If you call and have questions, they ALWAYS answer you. I have always had to wear glasses since I was about 7 or 8 years old. To not have to wear glasses, contacts, or readers is just amazing!

Cheryl H.

The outcome of my surgery was amazing! Being able to see without help of readers or anything has been amazing. I don't have to worry about buying contacts, buying solution or expensive glasses. The cost is so worth it!

Barbara D.

They have the best system! The procedure is like a well-oiled machine, everything runs so smoothly and you’re still treated as an individual. Everyone is so friendly and courteous.

Mary W.

Everything has been perfect! The staff is very tentative and professional, I have no complaints whatsoever.

Calvin M.

The staff was attentive and caring about what I had to say. Dr. McCarty is a blessing for what he does.
