Meet Your San Antonio Eye Doctor

Nevelow Eye Associates is run by Dr. John Nevelow, Dr. Erin Nevelow, and our team of optometry specialists. As a native of San Antonio, Dr. John Nevelow is fully committed to providing quality optometry care to residents of our local community. Dr. Nevelow has over 40 years of experience in the optometry field, specializing in family optometry and contact lenses.

At Nevelow Eye Associates, we understand the important role that vision plays in your life. Through our personalized eye care services, we strive to improve, protect, and preserve your sight. We work with numerous vision insurance providers and offer financing options for costly treatments to make it possible for you to get the optometry care you need.

Services We Provide

Comprehensive eye exams are at the core of the eye care services we provide. Through annual eye exams, we evaluate your eye health and vision to detect eye problems or vision changes that affect your sight. Our eye exams include assessments for eye health, visual acuity, eye movement and eye focusing to ensure you’re benefiting from optimal vision.   

We also test for eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and cataracts to catch these diseases in their early stages when they’re easier to treat. Early detection and treatment can help preserve your vision.

We offer quality eyewear in the form of prescription eyeglasses, contact lenses, and prescription and non-prescription sunglasses. Our extensive inventory of quality frames and lenses makes it easy to find glasses or contacts that suit your personal taste, lifestyle, and budget.

We carry a variety of contact lenses, including soft contacts, rigid gas-permeable contacts, and extended-wear/extended-wear disposable contacts to meet your needs. If you’re not familiar with contact lenses, we’ll take time to explain your options and the benefits of each so you can choose wisely. We’ll also ensure you have an accurate contact lens or eyeglass fitting.  

LASIK surgery offers an alternative to eyeglasses or contacts in correcting refractive errors in your vision. We’ll help co-manage LASIK and other eye surgery procedures so you can get the most from these treatments.
