Thank You for Choosing Bristol Family Eyecare,
Proudly Serving the Austin Metro Area

At Bristol Family Eyecare, nearly two decades of experience have taught us that the best eye care starts with outstanding service. Our experienced eye doctors and friendly, caring staff are fully up-to-date on the latest and greatest technology available in order to provide you with the best possible eye care experience.

When they visit either of our three locations in Georgetown, Bee Cave, and Lakeway, patients of all ages can count on comprehensive eye exams, reliable education, designer eyewear options, and quality medical eye evaluations. But perhaps most importantly, you can trust that you’ll come away with a solid foundation for a lifetime of care.

Over the years we’ve served our community, we’ve learned which services you’re seeking most frequently. So when we make decisions for our practice — whether we’re implementing new technology, continuing education, or adding eye care products to our range of options — we’re thinking about our patients, anticipating what they need from us, and personalizing our care accordingly.

Dr. Bristol is fantastic. Professional and friendly. Takes time to explain things. Never feels rushed. I've been a patient for about 10 years now, and always a good experience. The staff is super friendly, and the huge selection of frames is great.

Highly recommend

- Steve A.

Our family of six have been patients and fans of Dr. Bristol’s for 15+ years. I’ve been a CRT user for 14 of those years and love the freedom (without surgery.) My wife’s vision has been a moving target for the last ten years but Dan has patiently kept up. Kids are all happy with the service. Most of all we love Dan’s holistic approach screening for a number of potential health issues that can reveal themselves in the health of your eyes.

- Lance O.

Super service -- as usual and despite to COVID-19 pandemic. It doesn't get any better than this.

- Jeff L.

Always friendly and professional. The front staff and back staff are equally fantastic! They are extremely helpful and very efficient at getting you in and out in a timely fashion. I have found them to be outstanding with follow up care (i.e. frame adjustments, etc.) as well. Overall, a great choice!

- Marlo U.

Great facility, staff and service. Dr Bristol and team are fast, friendly and knowledgeable. In my experience they are prepared with the upfront insurance plan info so that you understand your covered options throughout the process (no financial surprises ) which I appreciate . The office also has a good selection of frames on hand to roils out the process.
