Care Philosophy

As an ophthalmologist, I believe that every patient should have care provided PERSONALLY by the physician. That requires careful evaluation and treatment of each individual, and an effort to help that person understand (as much as they wish) the cause of their problems by explaining in simple terms things that may be rather complex. In addition, I personally perform all operations with some of the most advanced technology available in my field including laser cataract and refractive surgery.

Patient Reviews (1)
in New Braunfels, TX |
I had cataracts surgery in 2012 by another doctor in another town and it was great to see again in the one eye that was bad enough to fix. This year, the other eye was bad enough and I had moved to New Braunfels and met with Dr. Tschoepe. He recommended a new lens that would fix my issue with the cataract and astigmatism. I can now see 20/20 distance and with a cheap pair of cheaters, 20/20 reading. What an improvement!

Dr. Tschoepe says...

Since 1977, I have been diagnosing and treating conditions and diseases of the eye, especially including cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and many other conditions that may permanently affect eyesight that do not have any symptoms.

Dr. Tschoepe says...

I have been doing refractive procedures since 1991 to help people reduce or eliminate dependence on glasses or contact lenses. This now includes state of the art laser procedures. In addition, I have been performing cataract procedures since 1977, and am currently performing refractive cataract surgery to help reduce or eliminate the need for glasses after cataract surgery. I have literally performed thousands and thousands of these procedures, and the success rate is extremely high.
