Success! Thanks for posting your review of Far West Optical. You’ve done the world some good today.


Both my husband and I went to see (both) doctors at various times. We had to go back again and again, because the prescriptions were just off. My husband's especially (he is diabetic, which affects the eyes). And don't get me started on the glasses. While the two ladies who operate the store are very nice, I was never and still am not happy with the glasses I received. As somebody else already mentioned, they are ... view more

I have only made purchases her...

I have only made purchases here, so I can't really speak about the doctors or appointment wait times, but I found the staff I dealt with to be very friendly and helpful. I had the same question about the "returned check fee" listed on my check receipt (it is not an actual charge!), and they explained that it was listed there to inform you of the extra charge that would be run if the check did not go through... view more

Great people, great service!

I have been seeing Dr. Barbara Coldiron for 23 years. I started going in high school upon moving to the Austin area. My 6 year old daughter even sees her and does really well. Dr. Coldiron is very efficient and very knowledgeable. On several occasions I have inquired about having laser surgery and she is very honest and caring in giving her reasons why I might not be a candidate. She offers free samples of c... view more

Great Experience

After reading wonderful reviews about Far West Optical I called for an appointment and Dr. Weaver was booked, but Dr. Guenther was available. I was reluctant to see her since there were no reviews of her. I did go to see her and had a great experience. She was very kind, thorough and knowledgeable. I had concerns about my eyes when I went it, and left feeling so very releived and seeing better than I had in month... view more

Great Optomitrist!

I have been a patient of Dr. Garth Weaver for many years. He is a very kind, patient, caring person. Anybody that can fit multifocal contact lens correctly is a pro in my book. This guy is the greatest! I have never had to wait more than 5-10 mins. past a scheduled appt. time. I would not hesitate to recommend this Dr. to anyone. Go now! You won't be sorry.

Really great exams

I have been a patient of Dr. Weaver's for 3 years now and I really appreciate the time he takes to do a very thorough exam and explain in detail anything I need to be aware of. I was recommended by a friend and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.

Best Eye Doctors in Town

I too was shocked at the previous comment. I've gone to Far West Optical for years (Coldiron in particular) and always had a positive experience. My husband drove me to an appointment one day and immeadiately switched doctors to them after seeing how the staff treated me. Now his mother goes too! \r I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Far West Optical-Excellent Service For 11 Years Now

I read the previous review of Far West Optical. While I know both doctors, it is Dr Barbara Coldiron I have seen for over eleven years now. Being a patient for over eleven years, I just can't imagine that the previous review and I have been to the same Far West Optical. Dr. Coldiron has always given me very thorough eye exams in a timely and gracious manner. I have found her to be a very caring doctor who has eve... view more

Avoid at all costs

I had a terrible experience at this business and recommend it to no one. On the first trip, I waited 20 mins past my appt time to finally be told that the dr had left for the day b/c of an injury. No one thought to tell the Patient sitting in the waiting room. After making another appt, I waited 15 mins past appt time and finally had to approach the desk to ask why there was a delay. After an unsatisfactory excha... view more

Superior Exams and Emergency Service

I've adored the kind and informative bed side manner of Dr. Garth Weaver for 13 or 14 years. His is indeed thorough during the yearly exams and in every instance. Most recently he saw me first thing in the morning after I accidently stabbed myself in the eye with my Toyota Key the night before and apparently scratched my cornea. While he clearly had a full patient schedule, he squeezed me in and really took a g... view more
