Eye Exams

Dr. Barrera and the Texas State Optical of Laredo team take even routine eye exams very seriously. During a yearly or bi-yearly examination, our Laredo patients will receive a patient history review, a series of vision and eye tests, assessments of eye focusing and movement, and an eye health evaluation. Our optometrist will discuss any additional testing that may be required to diagnose an eye disease or condition. Call us a today at 956-724-3242 to schedule an appointment.

Our Laredo optometrist will discuss the various options with you to determine which type will best fit your needs and lifestyle. Schedule your examination today by calling 956-724-3242. They are many advantages to consider when determining if contact lenses are right for you and our knowledgeable staff is here to answer any questions.

Eye infections and foreign bodies

If you have a red eye and are in pain do you have an infection, an allergy, or something in your eye?  With our specialized instruments we can spot the smallest of objects and remove metal, rust, and sawdust. Dr. Barrera is a therapeutically certified optometrist and can remove objects from your eye and prescribe medications to relieve infections and allergies of the eyes.


Laser assisted in situ keratomileusis, commonly referred to as LASIK, is a corrective alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Like glasses or contact lenses, LASIK is a method for treating refractive conditions including nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism. At Texas State Optical of Laredo, Dr. Barrera provides pre- and post-operative exams for LASIK and other eye procedures. Call 956-724-3242 today to schedule an examination to see whether you are a candidate for LASIK.
