Wonderful team who works there! I have been seeing Dr Bristol for over 10 years. Dr. Bristol also introduced me to CRT lenses 10 years ago, and my prescription hasn’t changed in years! Amazing technology, and best of all, I don’t have to bother with contacts or glasses during the day! I’m so happy that Dr. Bristol offered this technology to me so many years ago! Great office, highly recommend this doctor.

My wife and I eye have been patients at Bristol Family Eye care for over 5 years. We like that Dr. Bristol is very professional and friendly. His professionalism also reflects on his well-trained staff. We have recommended Dr. Bristol to several our our friends and family and they’ve all been very happy with the services!

- Camilo K. Austin, TX

My husband and I have been customers for several years and have been very pleased with the professionalism and quality of care. I brought my 5 year old son with me and the staff went out of their way to entertain him while I was having my exam. And the selection and quality of the eyeglasses they offer is fantastic. Its these ‘extra mile’ efforts that make them stand out!!

- Sharon R. Del Valle, TX

Moved to the area recently. My first experience with Dr. Bristol and his staff was due to an irritation on my eye. I called when they opened (as a new patient) and they had me in within an hour. Very friendly and courteous staff. I went back a few weeks later for my annual eye check-up and update on my vision. Staff was great and Dr. Bristol was patient (my eyes play tricks on me while in the chair.) I will have my family go and recommend others who are in need of an eye doc in the area.

- Brad V. Austin, TX

I am very impressed with Dr Bristol and his staff! Everyone is so very nice and helpful. Dr Bristol does a great job of explaining what the problem is without making you feel like you are being talked down to. He was also very patient when it came to checking my son’s eyes (I think he actually likes kids! Big plus!). I would highly recommend him. They also have a very nice selection of eyewear to choose from as well. I found a pair that I loved and my son had a great time trying on glasses while we waited.

- Autumn R. Denton, TX

As good as it gets. This is a GREAT business. Trust me, 32 years as a CPA, I know a good business. A lot of that time representing physicians and their offices. Dr. Bristol and his staff are both highly skilled and highly personable. Equipment is state-of-the-art (no more eye dilatation given their technology) but they are not trying to use it to mark up their fees like happens so often (think dentistry!).Fees are spot on in line with any optometrist out there – including the “big box brands” and given the service and family atmosphere, it’s a value. Been in Bee Cave 2 years. Finally found time to get a new optometrist. I can assure you the look is over – I’m a patient for life. Simply top notch and you owe it to yourself to receive this kind of care and attention.

Q&A with Dr. Bristol | Q&A with Dr. Bristol about CRT

Can you please describe to us what CRT is and give us a brief description of how it works?

CRT (Corneal Refractive Therapy) are contact lenses that you sleep in at night, the lenses mold and shape your cornea while you sleep. They flatten it, and by flattening the cornea the right amount, and in the right spot, in the center of the cornea, we can reduce or eliminate nearsightedness. This gives you clear distance vision. You won’t have problems seeing in the distance anymore. Enabling clear vision in the distance without wearing glasses or contacts in the daytime.
