"No AirPuff" policy

Comfort Meets Precision

We understand that the traditional method of measuring eye pressure—the infamous “air puff” test—can be startling and uncomfortable. That’s why we’ve implemented a “No AirPuff” policy. While it’s still necessary to check eye pressure, our gentle, patient-friendly instruments get the job done without the startle and discomfort of the air puff, ensuring a more pleasant experience during your comprehensive eye exam.

Optical Coherence Tomography imaging

Layers of Insight

Optical Coherence Tomography, or “OCT,” is a cutting-edge imaging test that allows us to view the intricate layers of your retina. Many diseases manifest in ways that only OCT can reveal, including early stages of Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, corneal deformities, and diabetic-related swelling in the back of the eye. Incorporating this technology into our evaluations dramatically enhances our ability to diagnose and manage eye conditions at the earliest possible stage.

When should children get an eye exam?

Pediatric eye exams are crucial for identifying early abnormalities in a child’s visual development since early detection is critical. The American Optometric Association advises that children should have their first eye exam by an eye care specialist at 6–12 months, once again between ages 3-5, before they start first grade, and annually after that. 

Dr. Raley sees children ages 12 months and up. Annual internal eye health evaluations are necessary to monitor a child’s neurological health, as many eye diseases can manifest before symptoms are noticeable. The earlier any issues are detected, the better the treatment options and outcomes. Book an appointment for your child to start them on the path to lifelong eye health!

Nearsightedness in Children

Children’s eyes require extra attention to ensure they develop appropriately. We’re devoted to safeguarding your child’s vision with the revolutionary MiSight® lenses. Our Myopia control strategies, including the MiSight® Program, actively slow the progression of Myopia, helping your child maintain better vision over time. 

If your child is already nearsighted, you can book an appointment with Dr. Raley to discuss treatment options. 

The Brilliant Futures Program

The Brilliant Futures™ Program was created to provide children with proactive and progressive myopia management. This program encompasses personalized care plans that support your child’s vision and eye health, crafting a bright future they can look forward to—one with a clear and healthy vision. Because we participate in The Brilliant Futures Program, we currently utilize the MiSight Lens, currently the only FDA-approved contact lens to treat Myopia in children. Learn more about The Brilliant Futures Program.

Common Questions About Pediatric Eye Conditions

Does anyone in your child’s family wear glasses or have an eye turn or “lazy eye”? If so, your child may be at a higher risk for developing amblyopia. Amblyopia, commonly known as “lazy eye,” is a vision development disorder where an eye fails to achieve normal visual acuity, even with prescription glasses or contact lenses. Amblyopia typically develops during infancy and early childhood when nerve pathways between the brain and an eye aren’t properly stimulated, causing the brain to favor one eye over the other.

Without early diagnosis and treatment, amblyopia can permanently reduce vision and depth perception, potentially limiting a child’s educational and career opportunities. In many cases, this condition can be effectively treated with prescription eyeglasses.

At Refined Eye Care & Eyewear Gallery, we prioritize early detection and treatment of amblyopia, offering customized therapy options to correct visual discrepancies and support healthy vision development in our pediatric patients.

Myopia, commonly known as nearsightedness, is a condition where objects appear blurry at a distance. There has been a concerning increase in the severity and frequency of this eye condition. Two primary factors contribute to its escalation:

  1. Genetics: Children born to myopic parents face a higher risk of developing Myopia themselves.
  2. Lifestyle: In today’s digital age, children spend more time engrossed in handheld devices like laptops and tablets, neglecting outdoor activities. This shift in lifestyle has significantly raised the likelihood of children developing Myopia at a young age.

Even if neither parent wears glasses, a child still has a 1 in 4 chance of becoming myopic (“nearsighted”). Myopia can significantly affect quality of life through the need for thick corrective lenses and can cause poor peripheral vision. More importantly, it increases the risk of more serious eye conditions such as glaucoma, retinal detachment, maculopathy, and even blindness.

By addressing these factors and promoting a balanced approach to visual health, we can work towards reducing the impact of Myopia.

In 2015, the World Health Organization released a report highlighting the alarming global rise of Myopia. Studies indicate that children are developing Myopia at increasingly younger ages. Astonishingly, the number of children aged 10 to 16 with Myopia has more than doubled. These statistics serve as a poignant reminder of the urgent need for action.

"Because we can't give them 10 Stars........"Mary and I moved to Tx recently and have tried different Optometrists for our annual eye exams.Today I give Refined Eye Care a 5 star review (only because I can't give them 10 stars).The location on HWY 46 is very convenient.The office is beautiful, clean and smartly attended to.My wife LOVED the complementary coffee / refreshment bar.We were greeted with smiles by Dee and Sharon at the front desk and in a few short minutes we felt like we were visiting with old friends. Typical, uncomfortable waiting room silence, was replaced with conversation and laughter.Macy, a 2x National Cheer Champion in college, enthusiastically did our exam with detailed explanations, in depth information and the answers to any / all questions we had.Alyssa was a joy to work with in discussing / choosing eyewear.She asked great questions, discovered our needs, did not oversell, handled all our insurance questions and paperwork and allowed us to walk out of our appointment feeling GREAT about the eyeglass / sunglass decisions we made.Dr Audrey was GREAT! Personable, friendly, warm, fun and VERY knowledgeable (Magna Cum Laude in both her undergrad and grad school education). We had questions about contacts, cataracts, Lasix, progressive lens, indoor/outdoor/daytime/ nighttime, occasional blurred vision I experience, macro degeneration, IPL treatment to restore eye moisture etc... .She was very patient in discussing our questions and extremely knowledgeable in providing explanations and answers.Did I mention she was SOOOOOOOOOO nice!We felt very comfortable and greatly appreciated her insight and guidance as we navigated decisions we needed to make.This clinic, Dr and staff deserve a 10 Star recommendation.If you are new to NBTX and/or are looking for an OD, look no further than Refined Eye Care, Mary and I highly recommend them.Paul Borchardt

Dr Raley & her staff got my 12 year old “seeing” again & she has never been happier. Being in glasses for most of her life, they shared information with us on their successful program for patients with myopia. The staff worked closely with my daughter on how to comfortably & correctly put in her contacts. They were patient & took the time to explain each step of the process.My daughter can now see clearly while in her classes at school & has expressed her excitement for being able to see the soccer ball clear across the field while she plays her favorite sport. We are so glad we chose Dr Raley & her amazing staff for her vision needs.

My 4 year old and I had our eyes examined here and had the best experience!First stop was with Dee, she was amazing and so helpful in scheduling our appointments and made the check in/check out process a breeze.The second stop was with Macy, she did our work up and was extremely thorough and made our pre-testing fun for my little one.Next, we met with Dr. Raley for our exam. She made sure to explain everything and answered all the questions I had. She was so patient and kind with my little one - our little one didn't want the exam to end!Our last stop was with Alyssa. My 4 year old did not need glasses but I did. I had so much fun picking out my glasses with Alyssa. I had a vision in mind and she made it happen! She gave me the best options for my prescription.After leaving the office my little one asked when we could come back to visit - I don't know how many 4 year olds enjoy the doctor that much :]I cannot say enough good things about this office.We will definitely be back. Schedule your exam here, you won't be sorry!

After Dr. Martino retired from business, I was hoping to find a caring and very professional eye doctor to take care of my needs. Rest assured, I found one. Dr. Audrey Raley and her staff are very thorough and caring for their patients. Highly recommended!! I’ve already talked to our maintenance guy here at the complex and he was impressed and saved Refined Eyecare’s contact information on his phone.
