What Patients Are Saying

My new implanted lens allows me to see 20/20 for the first time in my life! I had no pain and Dr. Welch and staff are awesome. I would do this again in a New York second!

Susan L.

Danielle did a great job on my exam. She explained everything to me. Everyone has been helpful at this office. As a new patient, I was a bit worried, but I had such a good experience.

Tommy A.

I had a great experience with my cataract surgery at CTEC. Everybody involved could not have been nicer.

Eleanor S.

I was looking for a new ophthalmologist and my daughter referred me to Central Texas Eye Center, where she had been going for years. The experience was like night and day comparing it with my previous ophthalmologist. I really felt like the staff and doctor cared about me as opposed to just being a number moving through a system. Glad I switched!

Glenda R.

From the time I walked up to appointment desk, pre-op, to meeting Dr Welch the personnel were experienced, friendly, fast. Everyone answered every question. Most importantly, they treated me as though I was their only patient of the day, even though the patient area was full. First visit but CTEC will handle all my eye needs.

James A.

Staff is amazing - especially Dr. Hu! I always feel as if they genuinely care about me as a patient and they take their time, I never feel rushed in my appointment.


I have been going to CTEC for years now and have always had a good experience. I have seen several of the Drs and they have all seemed knowledgeable with the correct treatments. I have been seeing Dr. Hu for several years now and he is great doctor as well as feeling like a friend.
