Louisiana Eye & Vision Center decided to expand the opportunity to bring advanced eye care to another area that was largely underserved to medical eye care. The new venture brought us to Crowley, known as the Rice Capital of the world. The doors opened in June 2016, and the need was apparent and well received. The City of Crowley needed an eye care office that offered consistently advancing medical eye care and more fashionable eyewear options. The office is a much larger space bolstering over 3,000 square feet of space with an impressive upscale optical featuring a towering brick wall that displays fashion-forward eyeglasses. The office also accommodates the option of three functioning exam rooms and a surgical suite for minor surgical and laser procedures as well as advanced equipment for monitoring many eye diseases. The office also has a fully functional optical laboratory for cutting and assembling patient lenses for quicker turn around of glasses. The office can accommodate more patients in a quicker time frame. We are also proud to serve as the hub for the doctors to perform vision to enhance post cataract laser procedures as well as glaucoma treatment procedures that have the potential to rid the patient of topical treatment for many years to come. The doctors have also teamed up with their alma mater to serve as a training facility for student doctors from the University of Houston, College of Optometry.
