TEXAS VISION CLINIC
We are a fully-owned, private practice with a deep history of serving Bastrop and the surrounding communities. Our practice was founded by Dr. Neil Gurwitz in downtown Bastrop in 1951. Over the years the office titles have changed but the care and familiarity remains. We are happy to continue the tradition of quality care to Bastrop and look forward to many more years of local service.
Our services include general optometric exams for glasses and contact lenses, specialty contact lenses, eye emergency care, and medical exams for conditions such as dry eye, keratoconus, glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetes, and more. We also co-manage cataract and refractive surgery locally so you avoid the headache of big city traffic.
