in Austin, Texas |
I was referred to Dr. Alexander 15 years ago. I had an eye injury as a young child which resulted in no center vision in one eye. Dr. Alexander was able to put me in bifocal contact lenses and spent more time examining the injured eye to suggest future protocol for my visual clarity. She answered all my questions and has always given me the most excellent eye exams. Her office staff members are patient and kind, and I enjoy seeing them every year. I highly recommend Dr. Alexander!
