Why Lake Travis Eye & Laser Center?

Dr. Rhodes opened Lake Travis Eye and Laser Center with the belief that the area could benefit greatly from a state-of-the-art ophthalmology practice specializing in cataract surgery, complete glaucoma care, and refractive surgery such as LASIK.

Lake Travis Eye & Laser Center is a member of the Lake Travis Chamber of Commerce, as well as the Four Points Chamber of Commerce and is located in the beautiful Tuscan Hills Lakeside building on RR 620. Dr. Rhodes strongly believes in providing the best possible care for each patient that comes through the door. This is seen in the medical records system and diagnostic equipment that we provide:

  • Our electronic medical record integrates fully with your pharmacy to provide you with easy access to your medications, with your primary care physician to provide them with updates on your eye health, and with your insurance to quickly confirm that they will cover the cost of your visit. You can even login from home and view your exam notes!
  • There are two important measurements that must be accurate to ensure a predictable result from cataract surgery: the shape/power of your cornea, and the length of your eye. These are used to calculate the exact lens implant to place into your eye during the surgery. We are one of the only clinics in the Austin area to provide the most advanced equipment for both of these measurements: the Pentacam topographer for corneal measurements, and the Lenstar LS900 for the eye length measurement.
  • Our newest technological advancement is the addition of laser cataract surgery integrated with the Verion alignment system. This equipment allows for the most precision astigmatism treatment lens alignment possible during laser catact surgery. There are two important tests that glaucoma patients need yearly to ensure that their disease is not progressing: a visual field exam that tests the function of your optic nerve, and an OCT scan to measure the thickness (correlates with health) of the optic nerve. We provide top-of-the-line diagnostic machines for both of these tests: the Humphery Visual Field Analyzer with Glaucoma Progression Analysis, and a Spectral domain OCT.

We look forward to providing you with compassionate and cutting-edge Austin ophthalmologist care.
