The Reagan Eye Center in Waxahachie provides a whole line of healthcare services to keep your vision sharp and focused. The center can provide care to treat anything from eye emergencies to a routine eye exam.

Heading up the Reagan Eye Center is Dr. David Reagan. Reagan earned his medical degree from the Autonomous University of Guadalajara in 1979. Reagan has been in practice since 1986 and opened his eye center in 1989. The Reagan Eye Center has locations in Waxahachie, Ennis and DeSoto.

Reagan said when patients arrive at the eye center they can expect to be greeted by a kind staff who are ready to help. The staff is not only friendly the staff but it is very knowledgeable in the service it provides. One of the services that the eye center provides is a routine and diabetic eye exam. Routine eye exams are recommended each year. This includes dilation, a full fundiscopic exam to check for macular degeneration, diabetic problems, and other retinal diseases. It also includes a eyeglasses check, a pressure check for Glaucoma and a check for cataracts.

Another service that the office in Waxahachie provides is Lasik surgery.

Lasik is a surgical procedure, which involves reshaping your eyes with a laser to help improve eyesight. By creating a tiny flap on the surface of your eye, Reagan can easily correct vision problems. The flap is then closed and your eyes quickly heal on their own.

Reagan said free evaluations are performed to see if Lasik surgery will be a best fit for the patient. The Lasik surgery center in Waxahachie is the only Lasik surgery center within 20 miles. The surgery center uses state of the art technology and procedures are done as an outpatient process.

Some of the other services that are provided at the Reagan Eye Center include contacts, glaucoma management, Blepharoplasty, and macular degeneration. The Reagan Eye Center also provides cataract surgery in its operating suite. Eye procedures done in the operating suite are done as outpatient processes.

A cataract is a cloudy lens inside your eye that makes it difficult to see, causes glare problems, and makes colors indistinct. During cataract surgery Reagan removes the cataract and inserts a new lens implant in its place to restore vision. The eye center offers both standard implants and multifocal implant options.
