Our Doctors and Staff

The eye care experts at Texas State Optical Magnolia fully understand how the human eye really works, as well as disorders and challenges that impact your vision—which often doesn't have clear signs. Optometrists are aware that risk factors and age affect vision for those of all ages, and they comprehend the plusses and minuses of corrective lenses, whether as eyeglass lenses or contact lenses.

Your Magnolia optometrists will patiently review the results of your eye exam, lay out your choices, and hear your eye care needs. Please don't hesitate to ask any and all questions, and share your vital health history with us. This is part of an ongoing partnership whose goal is to maintain your eye health while monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
