Dr. Carvounis is a rare find of a doctor: not only does he have stellar surgical skills that saved me from losing my vision, but he also genuinely cares about his patients. In an age when doctors are usually always in a rush and so busy, he always made the time to answer my many questions and thoroughly explain everything. His immense knowledge and expertise are very impressive, yet he remains humble and kind. His employees are all very nice and professional too, and his office is very clean and made me feel safe, even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. I can't recommend him enough!

My son lost his vision in both eyes in 2006 his retinas were detached due to a rare disease called Vogt Koyangi-Harada and Dr. Carvounis was referred to us in 2007 and three months later my son got his vision back and he has been monitoring him ever since then. He is an excellent doctor and very knowledgeable who truly cares for his patients and would highly recommend him to anyone with problems with there vision.

A MOST CARING AND BRILLIANT INDIVIDUAL. TAKES THE TIME TO EXPLAIN THE CIRCUMSTANCES, PROGRESS, OPTIONS, ETC. I HAVE ALREADY REFERRED HIM AS IM CONVINCED HE SAVED MY EYESIGHT. AT BAYLOR, THE WAIT COULD BE HOURS. NOW THAT HE IS IN PRIVATE PRACTICE, I UNDERSTAND THE WAIT IS BETTER.

Dr. Carvounis is an extraordinary doctor. He is very intelligent, extremely knowledgeable and always spends plenty of time with me. I consider him a friend. Several years ago I went to a different retina specialist, but that doctor left Baylor for private practice. Even though I've moved to Austin, I make it a point to remain a patient of Dr. Carvounis. I highly recommend him.
