If you live in North Texas, you have a one-stop-shop for all your vision and medical eyecare needs. Wylie Eye Center, located in historic downtown Wylie is a full-service practice offering everything from comprehensive eye exams and contact lens fittings to vision therapy, eye infection and disease treatment, and treatment of many chronic eye conditions. They can even help co-manage LASIK and other eye surgeries.
As one of only a handful of vision therapy practices in this area, Wylie Eye Center diagnoses and treats visual-motor and/or perceptual-cognitive deficiencies in students. “Often, when a child is struggling with reading and aren’t completing their assignments, they’re diagnosed with ADD when they may, in fact, have a problem with eye teaming,” Dr. Beth Anderson said. “While glasses work with one eye at a time, we can work with children to train their eyes to work together, and the results are astounding. Because vision-related academic problems present differently in each child, we work with each individual child to tailor a vision therapy program specifically for them.”
Eyewear and Contacts
Wylie Eye Center has the largest selection of eyewear in this area with over 1,500 frames. “We also fit contact lenses for all ages, including multifocal and specialized lenses for medical condition such as keratoconus, challenging prescriptions, or post-refractive surgery lenses,” Dr. Lauren Claborn said. “We’re blessed every day to watch our patients walk in with eye conditions that are affecting their quality of life and see them walk out again with their eye health and vision restored.”
Chronic Eye Conditions
“With the field of medicine advancing so rapidly, it’s a great time to be an eye doctor,” Dr. Lindsay Denton said. “To stay on top of these advancements, Dr. Anderson, Dr. Claborn, and I each accrue many more hours of continuing education than are required each year and have invested in the latest, next-generation technology. This equipment allows us to customize care for ocular conditions such as glaucoma, diabetes, cataracts, hypertensive retinopathy, dry eye, and more. And because we all live locally, we’re close by, should a patient experience a medical emergency.”
Although Wylie is growing and welcoming new residents every year, Wylie Eye Center doctors and staff take pride in providing know-you-by-name, small-town service. “The best part of our day is getting to know our patients,” Dr. Anderson said. “The more we know about you, your lifestyle, and your medical history, the better we can understand the big picture of your eye health. Arriving at the right prescription for each patient involves balancing clear eyesight, visual efficiency, and your ability to process visual information seamlessly. We see patients from six months old to 106 years old and are blessed by them every day.”
The doctors and staff of Wylie Eye Center are active members of the community, supporting local schools and service organizations. They’re active with the Wylie Chamber of Commerce where they were named 2014 Business of the Year. As moms with young children, they enjoy a special rapport with their youngest patients.
