Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery. 

Having made various contributions to his field, Dr. Evans has been published extensively in numerous professional articles, has presented several presentations, and has undertaken ophthalmic pharmaceutical company special studies. He is the recipient of Texas Super Doctors in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010, and 2011, as well as the author of Holy Week: the World Turned Upside Down.

Passionate about his work, he states: “Listening is such a crucial part of my job. I need to understand exactly what’s bothering my patients in order to precisely diagnose and treat their conditions.”
