Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Academy of Ophthalmology has instructed all eye care facilities to cease providing any treatment other than urgent or emergent care immediately.

Central Texas Eye Center is committed to continuing care on an emergency basis, in the San Marcos location. If you are in need of emergency eye care, please call 512-353-1300 and we will make the appropriate arrangements to see you.

Beginning Monday, March 23rd all non-emergent appointments will be cancelled, and you will be contacted. We will have someone available to refill medications. Please send requests to info@ctectx.com

It is critical we continue to support our healthcare community so patients with emergency conditions do not stretch the capacity of our hospitals during our country's greatest time of need.

We encourage our staff and patients to take proper precautions, and follow guidelines from public health officials.

We will update you on our re-opening status via email, our website, and social media outlets.
