Our Optical Team

Eye doctors, or optometrists, specialize in understanding the human eye, but that doesn’t mean that each eye is the same. Our northwest Houston eye doctors understand the individual care required by an eye doctor for each of his or her patients. To evaluate and treat a specific vision problem, our doctors understand more about every patient’s eye condition before treating him or her. By asking questions and learning the symptoms, our eye doctors get a real insight into which eye exams to perform, which ocular disease to look out for, and how to treat the eye disease better if found.
