Welcome to Austin Retina Associates

Austin Retina Associates has been serving the citizens of Austin and surrounding communities since 1978. It is the largest retinal specialty group in Central Texas.  Each of the highly respected physicians at Austin Retina Associates is a board-certified, licensed ophthalmologist and fellowship-trained retinal specialist who is an expert in managing diseases involving the retina, vitreous and macula.  Between them is over one hundred years of combined medical knowledge and professional experience in providing patients with the very best vitreoretinal care available.  ARA continues to remain at the forefront of retinal specialty practices by utilizing cutting-edge diagnostic equipment while offering state-of-the-art surgical procedures and pharmaceutical treatment regimens.  ARA collaborates with referring ophthalmologists, optometrists, primary care physicians and specialists to comprehensively treat vitreoretinal disease.  Additionally, Austin Retina Associates is nationally recognized for its participation in ground-breaking, pivotal clinical trials for twenty-five years, which has allowed us to offer our patients the opportunity to receive novel procedures and therapies through enrollment in research studies.

The physicians and staff at ARA also provide support to the Austin community through participation in health fairs, sponsoring educational seminars for patients and their families, and hosting continuing education lectures for Central Texas medical professionals.  This dedication to community service extends beyond our own borders, as ARA physicians and staff have participated in medical mission trips to South America, Mexico, Panama, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe, Ghana, Viet Nam, Cuba, Haiti and most recently, China.

Everyone at Austin Retina Associates, from the physicians to the technical personnel to the administrative staff, strives to provide the most efficient and professional, yet caring and compassionate service to each and every patient.  This dedication to excellence is reflected in our mission statement.
