About Us

Dr. Cottle opened Lake Austin Eye to be closer to her family and community. After practicing in Cedar Park for five years, Dr. Cottle saw the need for a corrective eye surgeon closer to her home in Westlake / Bee Cave. Lake Austin Eye formally opened in October of 2012, and the practice quickly grew as we expanded into our new state of the art diagnostics clinic and laser LASIK suite in October 2019. Dr. Broyles joined the practice in 2023 and as two of the leading cornea specialists in Austin, Drs. Cottle and Broyles also offer their expertise in more complicated ocular surgeries. They both have an extensive history of superior cataract surgery, corneal surgery, and LASIK vision correction. They are both experienced cornea specialists who perform the minimally invasive endothelial corneal transplantations, which allows their corneal transplant patients to have a quicker and smoother postoperative recovery. They are also specialists in Dry Eye Disease care and have extensive algorithms for the treatment options for this frustrating and chronic disease. Dr. Cottle is an active speaker on various ophthalmology circuits, where she can share her own personal experience while she gains new and different insight from her peers throughout the state and around the country. Dr. Broyles brings her academic experience and has initiated various research opportunities at Lake Austin Eye, along with community outreach programs.

Together, Drs. Cottle and Broyles bring over twenty-five years of vision care and corrective eye surgery experience to Lake Austin Eye. They offer routine eye exams, dry eye exams, glaucoma and diabetic eye exams, cataract evaluations and free LASIK consultations. Their lovely office is equipped with all the state-of-the-art testing and eye exam equipment, and the location is easy to find with ample parking. Make a day out of your visit to Lake Austin Eye, located near the beautiful Hill Country Galleria Shops and Restaurants.
