VISUAL AND OCULAR HEALTH EXAMS
At Wink Optical and Eye Care, we take the time to understand our clients’ history and needs. We strive to provide care that is thorough and precise. Your eye exam will include two components. The first will be to optimize your visual needs, and the second will include an ocular health check.
Common diseases of the body like Diabetes, Hypertension, Thyroid disorder, and more can also affect the eyes. During your ocular health check we screen for these adverse effects along with other ocular conditions such as Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and Cataracts. We want to endeavor with every patient, to give them the time and attention required so that their unique ocular and visual needs are met. Our goal is not only to treat your current problem, but also to prevent future health issues - we achieve this by providing a thorough education to the patient about their findings, and if relevant, we will work in tandem with other specialties and doctors who may need to be involved.
EYE CARE SERVICES
VISUAL AND OCULAR HEALTH EXAMS
Dr. Gohel is a Therapeutic and Glaucoma specialist. During their routine exam, all patients will be evaluated at a baseline for any suspicion for glaucoma. Wink Optical and Eye Care takes pride in having available the latest equipment and technology to thoroughly assess any glaucoma suspects for further evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment as needed.
DRY EYE EVALUATION AND TREATMENT
Texas is a very dry state and we go through spur of the moment weather changes very frequently! Environment, however, is not the only cause for dry and irritated eyes. Often patient’s blame their symptoms on seasonal allergies when that may not be the case. Dr. Gohel is here to find the origin of your symptoms and treat the problem at its root. If you experience dry, itchy, watery, or red eyes or you find you can no longer tolerate wearing your contacts a full day, these are all symptoms of dry eye. Additionally, there are several systemic conditions such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogren’s, Lupus, Rosacea, Thyroid dysfunction, and more which can all impact the integrity of your tear film and mucosal surfaces. We take all of this into account here at Wink Optical and Eye so that our patients may experience lasting relief.
CONTACT LENS FITTING
Dr. Gohel is capable of fitting a range of contact lenses based on your specific needs. Certain ocular conditions may require a more specialized lens, these may include - Scleral Contact Lenses, Rigid Gas Permeables, Custom Soft Contact Lenses, and Prosthetic lenses. After spending careful time assessing the patient and evaluating their unique history, Dr. Gohel will be able to review with each patient which lens could best resolve their visual needs.
Our greatest wish is that you never have to deal with an urgent red eye/pink eye or other complications which could impact your ocular health and vision, but this happens - we are available to you during clinic hours for any spur of the moment issues, and Dr. Gohel will be “on call” for any messages sent regarding an emergency issue after hours. Things we urge patients to come in for:
Ocular irritation/redness after overnight contact lens wear
Sudden onset double vision
Flashes of light
New onset floaters
Sudden loss of vision
We are happy to work with you and help resolve your emergency issues, and have a wonderful network of providers for referrals as needed.

Our goal is to help you find the right fit for your visual needs and lifestyle.
