Grace M.

"Doctor Irshad is an Amazing, Dedicated, Caring, Compassionate, Knowledgeable Doctor. Saturday an object flew in my eye during yard work. I called his after hour number and Dr. Irshad called me back immediately. He diagnosed me a few minutes later through a Tele Health visit. Amazing how he diagnosed me through my iPhone! He said the tiny object was imbedded in my eye and to come to his office that Saturday evening. Yes I said Saturday! Yes I said evening! Dr. Irshad called me Sunday and again on Monday to check on me. Yes I will say it again Dedicated, and Caring Doctor! So glad I did not hesitate when it came to my vision. So glad Doctor Irshad is my eye Doctor!"

Imran K.

"The staff at Eye Clinic of Austin is extremely courteous, and each doctor there is passionate and professional. Dr. Irshad is one of the best in his field. Wait times are low, and glasses are both stylish and affordable. I would not go anywhere else in Austin for my ophthalmology needs."

Melissa K.

"I had a consultation for lasik surgery with Dr. Irshad. He is the kindest eye doc I have ever met, and I feel so comfortable with his skill and professionalism. He made me feel at ease by explaining the procedure in detail and taking me through each step. The staff is very efficient, and nice, plus the wait is not long which is always appreciated. I definitely recommend this clinic. Especially Dr. Irshad for lasik surgery."

Debbie W.

"Dr. Irshad is my hero. I have the monofocal lenses. Distance in one eye. Reading in the other. And love not wearing glasses. Highly recommend the Eye Clinic of Austin."

Janet B.

"From the moment I entered the Eye Clinic, I felt valued and cared for. The entire staff I dealt with were very warm, friendly, and compassionate. They explained every test and procedure and answered each question I had. Dr. Irshad was very thorough and explained the procedure in great detail with layman’s language. He provided a link to an extremely informative set of videos which helped calm my fears about my upcoming surgery. There was never any hesitancy about proceeding with my cataract surgery after receiving the positive results of my visits. I’m fortunate to have found an eye center that performed a service to help extend the life of my eyes and provide me with a life of seeing better. Thank you all for helping me to see so much better!"

Cathy P.

"I have nothing but praise concerning the process from start to finish that I have recently experienced in regards to cataract surgery that was recently performed on my right eye. (My second surgery, which will be performed on my left eye will take place in two weeks.) The office staff was kind and engaging, making sure to encourage questions concerning my visit. Tests that needed to be performed before the surgery diagnosis were painless and thorough. Dr. Irshad is top notch in his professional, yet personal manner. I felt that he allowed plenty of opportunities for questions, and each question was answered with clarity and patience."

Nanci F.

"I was especially pleased with Sarah, the technician who ran through many of the tests prior to my seeing the Dr. She was a very easy to talk with woman and put me at ease with sharing stories of her recent move to Austin from Utah. She was also very competent at the tests she was performing and appeared to be very knowledgeable about what each test was assessing."

Stephen J.

"Thanks for squeezing me in on the same day when issues with my eye came up during my work visit to Austin. Even better, your referral to the retina specialist led to a quick resolution to my detached retina. Your care, expertise, and network were crucial to my rapid diagnosis and successful treatment."

Bradley K.

"Great Optical team and by far the best doctor in Austin - Dr. Prosise. She is efficient, friendly and caring. She gives you all the time you need to answer questions and understand your needs. Salika in the Optical Department goes out of her way to give you the best possible service and support..."
