I have been seeing Dr Henderson for several years and he had been watching emerging cataracts for a few years. In the fall of 2012 I began to experience a decrease in vision and I went to Dr. Henderson. At first he did not thing it was the cataracts since six months earlier they had shown no significant interference with my vision. He performed several diagnostic test and during the exam determined that the cataracts had grown rapidly and were now impairing my vision. He recommended cataract surgery and a lens implant. I agreed that this course of treatment appeared promising. The pre-surgical process was seamless both with Dr. Henderson and the outpatient surgical hospital he uses. On the day of the surgery the check in process went with ease. The surgery was done in less than thirty minutes and there was NO pain involved. During the removal of the cataract I felt and saw a cool stream of water cover my eye and saw a bright light. When the surgery was over they sent me home with a patch on my eye. The patch only had to be worn while sleeping or napping so that you would not rub or scratch the eye; so, when I got home I took the patch off and WOW, I knew what the bright light was, my restored vision! My distance viewing was bright and clear. Objects were sharp and well defined, the colors in my house vibrant, the pictures on the wall had found the clarity and meaning they had when they were purchased years ago. After a day of rest, I purchased some reading glasses and I was good to go back to work.
Five weeks later, Dr. Henderson recommended repeating the procedure on the left eye to provide balance and a slight increase in peripheral vision. As with the first surgery, seamless registration process, quick painless surgery and results in line with expectations.
These cataract surgeries and lens implants are very cool technology and Dr. Henderson and his staff implements it with care, effectiveness and efficiency.
"As someone who has worn glasses/contacts for over 12 years, I can honestly say that the LASIK procedure completely changed my life! Waking up in the morning and being able to see the clock without having to squint or put on my glasses was incredible to me. If you are thinking about having LASIK, I totally recommend it, it is so worth it! The staff at the Eye Clinic of Austin are so great and they really make you feel at ease. Thank you Dr. Henderson for giving me perfect vision again!"
"My transition from a visual acuity of 20/400 to 20/15 was all but seamless thanks to Dr. Henderson and his excellent staff. Though I was always comfortable wearing my contacts I was ready to discover life unencumbered by lenses of any sort. The procedure went perfectly as planned and I often wonder if I’m still wearing any contacts and didn’t just forget to take them out for a whole year. Unfortunately it still took me a while after the surgery to stop poking my eye before I went to bed in a vain attempt to pull my contacts out. I highly advise against this though, as I’m not even a trained professional. On the other hand I do highly recommend Dr. Henderson’s office, who all happened to be trained professionals. His experience and passion proved immeasurable to me as a patient who was initially unsure if LASIK was right for me. Thanks guys!"
"My father-in-law and my wife have been long time patients of Dr. Henderson and the Eye Clinic of Austin. So when I needed new glasses because I couldn’t read the license plate on the car in front of me, I made an appointment with the Eye Clinic of Austin. I met with Dr. Henderson and I was diagnosed with cataracts at 39 years old. I was upset and in disbelief but Dr. Henderson took the time and explained what my options were and helped me understand exactly what I could expect. Now after two very successful cataract surgeries and LASIK vision correction, I no longer even had a glasses restriction on my driver’s license. My vision is better now than I ever remember it being since I was a child. I couldn’t be happier with my experience with the doctors and the wonderful staff at the Eye Clinic of Austin."
"I had my PRK surgery done in November of ’10, and I can honestly say that it was the best decision I’ve made in my life! I wore glasses for over 20 years up to that point, and the sense of freedom from not having to worry about that, or contact lenses, anymore, has been exactly what I was hoping for. The procedure was quick, painless, and I couldn’t believe the results right off the bat! Recovery didn’t take very long, and once the bandage lenses came out; it was all smooth sailing after that! I definitely recommend getting this done, and the folks at the Eye Clinic of Austin made the experience so great, I can’t think of anywhere else I would go."
"I was very hesitant to have laser eye surgery but excited at the same time. From the very first appointment, I felt comfortable in Dr. Henderson’s expertise as well as comfort in knowing he had dedicated and knowledgeable staff. Alexis walked me through the entire process from beginning to end so that there were no surprises and I knew exactly what to expect. The day of the surgery was scary nonetheless but again the staff made me feel at ease and later that day I was able to see the numbers on my alarm clock! I had no complications and 1 ½ years later still see 20/20. Not having to wear contacts or glasses has changed my life. I am a runner and not having to worry about either of these makes my running experience so much more enjoyable. I felt so confident in Dr. Henderson and his staff that last year I talked my husband into getting the surgery as well. He’s enjoyed the same success I have!"
"I was extremely pleased with the care and results I received from Dr. Henderson and Dr. Prosise at the Eye Clinic of Austin. As a lawyer, my eyes are my livelihood and I approached the entire process with quite a bit of concern. They were very patient with me, allowing me to evaluate my options and ask all the questions I had. I was even given contacts to see what the end results would be. I appreciated the fact that they never tried to “hard sell” and I was an individual in their office, not another sale. By the time I approved moving forward with the surgery, I felt very confident on what kind of outcome I could expect.
The outcome was all I expected it to be. I am sitting here at my computer writing this review without glasses or contacts. It was time and money well spent. I would strongly suggest you consider talking to the Eye Clinic of Austin over the strip mall doctors.
And that girl Alexis rocked. She should be paid much more money and given 30 days annual leave."
"Dear Eye Clinic of Austin,
Just wanted to say thanks. It’s been about a year since my LASIK and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I never thought I would get rid of my glasses much less have better than 20/20 vision, but I do now. Besides the fact that my surgery turned out great it was also a pleasure to deal with Dr. Henderson and all of the staff there. I’ve always gotten in and out of my appointments on time and the staff are always super professional and friendly. Thanks to everyone!"
"After my first visit to Dr. Henderson’s office, I noted that his staff was pleasant, helpful and competent. There was a sense of organization. After discussing my condition with him I felt confident that I had chosen the right doctor. After conducting the appropriate tests the surgery was scheduled. The results were spectacular. I finished with 20/20 vision and experienced a sharp new world of vibrant colors. This was accomplished with very little discomfort and inconvenience. At 75 this was a very positive experience."
"Usually medical procedures are fraught with anxiety, apprehension and sometimes fear. So with some trepidation I visited the Eye Clinic of Austin to have my cataracts removed. My first positive experience with the Eye Clinic of Austin was being able to fill out the necessary medical paper work at home so I could shortcut the tedious office filling-out of forms. After a short wait, I was greeted by surgical coordinator and ophthalmic technician, Kine Reynes. Kine was extremely proficient in administering the tests I needed to take. He easily answered any questions I asked and did so with terms I could understand.
Next, I was greeted by the eye physician and surgeon, Dr. Clayton Falknor. Dr. Falknor viewed the test results and explained in layman’s terms my options and the benefits and advantages of each choice. He, too, answered all my questions and calmed any worrisome thoughts I had regarding the procedure. The decision was made on what procedure I was to have and a few weeks later my left eye cataract was removed and replaced with what I like to call a “bionic” lens. The operation was painless; took no more than 25 minutes to perform; and my eyesight was the best it ever has been since I was a young lad 50 years ago. The day after the operation I received a call directly from Dr. Falknor to make sure I was okay and doing well. How often does that happen in the medical world?
It isn’t usual after an operation that you can say the procedure was “a piece of cake” but the treatment for my cataract was just that. If you have any eye problems, I mostly heartily recommend the Eye Clinic of Austin and their wonderful well-trained staff."
"Dr. Thomas Henderson has made a difference in my quality of life, as well as that of my friends, and relatives. He treats his patients with kindness, his work is outstanding, and his staff exert themselves to the uttermost in helping his patients before, during, and after."
"Dear Dr. Henderson & Staff, I am so appetitive of the good care I received from you and your staff. Just thought I’d tell you. Form the time I stepped through your door to when I left I am greeted happily and treated professionally. Thank you"
"It is spring and with the season concerns new beginnings, glorious colors and a hopeful heart. Just yesterday I caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye a flock of Snow Geese. I then was able to take full view as they flew happily above me heading north to their summer home. And, this spring the flowers fill the fields in vivid colors creating a sea of blue waving petals in the breeze and my eyes can see that improvement. There too are the clear faces of my friends the color of their eyes, the crinkles of their smile showing the depth of their soul.
And then there is the mere balance of life that has returned the ability to find joy in the day. The sense that years have been added to my life and that the quality of that life has returned.
All these little gifts while small in many ways are huge in the spectrum of a life. I am so grateful to you for bringing all this to me with your wonderful ability and talent to restore my vision. I am also grateful that you chose the career path you have so successfully taken and that I have so gratefully benefited from your choice.
So I am ever so thankful, grateful and happy to have been referred to you. You, more then you will ever know, gave me my life back and as an artist, writer, and photographer, that is huge. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you."
"First of all, it has been three months since my LASIK procedure and I absolutely cannot be any happier about my new vision! I walked into The Eye Clinic of Austin not even able to read the giant 'E' without my contacts, and now I am able to see 20/15! Like most people considering LASIK, I was nervous about the entire thought of it. All of my worries about the surgery were quickly put at ease after my consultation visit with Dr. Henderson and his wonderful staff; I knew right away that I was in good hands. All of my concerns were answered without hesitation and the procedure was clearly explained to me before and even during the actual surgery. I will be forever thankful for the positive experience that The Eye Clinic of Austin gave to me!"

"My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Henderson since we moved to Austin 6 years ago and have found in him, and in the Eye Clinic staff, the best eye care that we have ever experienced. In addition to regular eye examinations, Dr. Henderson has performed cataract surgery on both of us and it was painless, fast and successful.
We never hesitate to recommend him as the “best” whenever anyone mentions that they need the name of an ophthalmologist."
"My husband and I drive 3 ½ hours each time I have an appointment with Dr. Falknor at the Eye Clinic of Austin. I do this gladly because I simply want the best care for my eyes. I know I have it with Dr. Falknor.
At every appointment, Dr. Falknor always takes the time to answer my questions or address any concerns, and he consistently makes sure I am well informed about my medications or treatments. My family and I are incredibly grateful to Dr. Falknor and the staff at Eye Clinic of Austin."
"I was very nervous and concerned when considering whom I should go to for my recent cataract surgery, but after my initial consultation with Dr. Clayton Falknor, I knew I had come to the right place.
Everyone I encountered on the staff at the Eye Clinic of Austin was always friendly, knowledgeable, and reassuring. Dr. Falknor was just wonderful. I appreciated the time he took with each visit to be very clear, thorough, and patient with me no matter what my question. He explained the options that were available to me and helped guide me to make what I think was the best decision for me. I could tell he understood my concerns but he always allayed my fears by clearly describing how and what was going to occur. What I anticipated as frightening became fascinating. The results of my surgery were even better than I imagined. I am so thankful to him and his staff. Dr. Falknor is definitely a very skilled specialist and caring physician, and I feel so fortunate to have him as my doctor."
"Hands down - Eye Clinic of Austin is the best place to go for anything vision or eye-related. I have been a patient of Dr. Henderson for the past few years and have become very comfortable with his great professional expertise. I have received relief from eye pain, dry eye, and routine checkups so when I needed cataract surgery I knew he would be with me each step of the way. This is the reason Dr. Henderson has been voted the best Doctor of the Year for many years. Dr. Henderson and staff are really friendly and always go out of their way to help, no matter what you need. When I had my cataract surgery done in 2011 everything went smoothly, except I wasn't able to see up close after the surgery. However, Dr. Henderson works with you with various techniques and checkups to help you meet your goal for vision. Everything about Eye Clinic of Austin Eye is state of the art, comfortable, friendly, efficient, informative and high-quality. They even answer the phone when you call-a real person right there to help you. No matter what is going on with your vision or your eyes-trust me, they can help!"
"For over 20 years glasses and contacts hindered my mornings, driving, athletic endeavors, and even vacations. It is just so incredibly liberating to be free of all the limitations that accompany poor vision. Dr. Henderson and his impeccable staff fully answered all of my numerous questions and concerns and we did not move forward until I was completely satisfied. The process itself was relatively quick and easy. I also greatly appreciated the care I received with the follow-up appointments. Without a doubt, I am grateful for the improved quality of life I’m now enjoying through my vastly improved vision."
"I had a great experience with Eye Clinic of Austin. I can see 20/20 and the procedure was affordable and easy. The facility was clean and the staff was professional. The pre-op process was thorough, the operation went smoothly, and the post-op process has been painless."
"From start to finish, from -5.25 to 0.00, my LASIK experience has been top-notch. Dr. Henderson and Dr. Prosise are knowledgeable, kind and precise. Alexis is a fantastic guide through the entire process, especially during the actual LASIK procedure (step-by-step description and countdown). I love telling people about the actual laser contact being only 36 seconds per eye! My vision is now a staggering 20/15; I have better vision than my husband, who has never needed glasses, and I can read more clearly and from further distances than I ever could with glasses or contacts. The price for the procedure is competitive (you don’t want to cheap-out on something like this) and includes each pre-and post-office visit. It is an excellent value for the time and cost, and I am so glad that I did it!"
"A couple of years ago, not having been to an ophthalmologist in the Austin area, and needing an eye examination for “floaters”, a friend suggested I see Dr. Henderson. His approach and demeanor removed most of my anxieties and fears about the symptoms and causes of the condition I had. During that examination we also discussed the cataracts which were developing in my eyes at that time. Because of that impression from my first visit, I recently returned to him and decided for cataract surgery on each eye. The decision was made much easier because of Dr. Henderson’s explanations of the cataracts, my options and the procedure itself. He again removed all my anxieties by making sure that all of my questions were answered and understood. The two separate surgeries were completed and the results met my expectations. I would definitely recommend Dr. Henderson and his staff to anyone needing eye treatments or surgeries."
"LASIK was the easiest procedure I’ve ever had! It was quick, painless, and my vision is incredible! Before LASIK I couldn’t even see the alarm clock next to my bed without my glasses or contacts, now I see everything! I recommend LASIK with Dr. Henderson to everyone! If anyone is the least bit nervous, Dr. Henderson has excellent bed side manner to put you at ease! Your eyes are in good hands with him! No one should waste time wearing glasses or contacts - LASIK is the way to go! It’s worth every penny!"
"I could not be happier with the service I received from Dr. Henderson and his staff. They made my LASIK procedure a pleasurable and rewarding experience from day one by taking time to walk me through the process and remove all of my concerns. I have and will continue to highly recommend their services to anyone interested in getting LASIK."
"I often hear people who have had LASIK say their biggest “win” is being able to see the alarm clock first thing in the morning without glasses or contacts. For me, the “win” is being able to fall asleep watching the TV and not worrying about rolling over my glasses in my sleep, or waking up in the middle of the night with a throbbing headache as my contacts have dried on my eyes.
A secondary “win” is being able to get up and go for a run without the assistance of contacts. As an avid runner, there’s nothing worse than being miles from home and losing a contact lens while in unfamiliar territory. Fortunately, this is no longer a concern. I’m also looking forward to being able to swim without goggles when the summer rolls around again!
From my initial visit with Alexis, to pre/post and surgery itself with Dr. Henderson, to now scheduled follow-ups with Dr. Prosise, I could not have asked for a better all around experience with the Eye Clinic of Austin. Dr. Henderson and his team did a fantastic job of communicating all aspects of the entire process, and I never once was concerned they did not have my best interest in mind.
I honestly believe that Dr. Henderson and his staff genuinely celebrate my “wins” with me, and for this I enjoy spreading the word when it comes to LASIK and the Eye Clinic of Austin. In the day and time where customer satisfaction is important to a business’s success, Dr. Henderson and his team nailed it."
