At Total Eye Care our patients love our hi-tech, thorough eye exams. We employ the latest in advanced instrumentation. Technology improves the detection and treatment of diseases, allowing the Doctors to see their patients in a relaxed atmosphere.

Laser Assisted in-Situ Keratomileusis is the most popular method of refractive surgery. It is a quantum leap improvement over the old method called (RK) Radial Keratotomy. RK was followed by (PRK) Photo Refractive Keratectomy. At Total Eye Care we partner with our patients in finding the best procedure (whether it is LASIK, PRK, 30 day extended wear contacts or clear lens extraction to name just a few of the options available) and the best surgeon for their situation and give our patients an unbiased opinion on the best procedure for them. We provide pre and post-operative care for our patients.

We offer thorough, unhurried eye health exams for adults and children, diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and injuries, laser vision correction management, emergency care, a huge selection of frames, lenses, and contacts, and the latest technology to make eye care more accurate, comfortable and effective.

With all that, there's no need to go anywhere else for quality family eye care. Because caring for generations of families is what we do best at Total Eye Care.

Total Eye Care was started in January 1995 by Dr. Diana Driscoll and Dr. Rich Driscoll. The Doctors met in San Antonio, Texas and decided they wanted to practice together in the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex. After six months of searching for the ideal location they decided to open their office in Colleyville, TX located at 5005 Colleyville Blvd. Dr. Alycia Green joined the practice in April 2008. After 13+ years, on September 2, 2008, Drs. Driscoll relocated Total Eye Care into their new building located at 6114 Colleyville Boulevard.

Amarillo Eye Care

Dr. Howell is the middle child of three children whose father was a family doctor who practiced in a small ranching community in southwest Texas. He grew up there graduating from Sonora High School in 1951. He matriculated to Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana where he attended the School of Arts & Science entering the School of Medicine after three years. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in 1955 & a Medical degree in 1958.

Dr. Howell studied Ophthalmology post graduate of medical school at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan. He served two years as a Captain in the US Air Force at Wilford Hall USAF Hospital in San Antonio, Texas where he was a staff Ophthalmologist and a teacher in the residency program.

He moved to Amarillo, Texas in July 1964 to practice with the group of Striet, Murphy, Alpar & Taylor. He opened a solo practice in September 1984. He has been an Associate Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology with Texas Tech Health Science Center (Medical School) since 1973.

Every person who has diabetes is at risk to lose their vision because of changes that occur in the eye caused by diabetes. There are other potential risks to the kidneys & legs as well. The eye disease can be treated but timing is very critical. Because of this the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends a yearly dilated examination by an Eye MD (Ophthalmologist) for every person who has diabetes. Persons who have to use insulin for control are more at risk but the disease known as "diabetic retinopathy" can occur in any diabetic person.

If diabetes is found in the eyes, then more frequent eye exams are necessary. If certain changes occur, treatment with a special "laser" is indicated. This surgery is usually performed by an ophthalmologist who has become a sub specialist in retina & vitreous diseases. We are fortunate to have two well trained doctors here in Amarillo. Before treatment, tests are performed which tell where in the eye treatment should be done. A dye called fluorescein is injected in an arm vein. Using a special kind of camera, photographs are taken of the inside of the eye as the dye circulates in the arteries & veins of the eye. This information is used to place the treatment in the right place.
