Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Tschoepe "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 Comments (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!
