Optometrist is On-Site at Texas State Optical
Eye care professionals, or optometrists, specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. The eye doctors of Texas State Optical Tomball know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
