Eyecare in Southwest Houston, TX

We want you to know we understand eye care extremely well, just as you’d expect, but we also understand the eye business. So we won’t bamboozle you with terms like Acanthamoeba Keratitis, CMV Retinitis, Orthokeratology, Keratoconus, etc. We will talk to you like real people not doctors, with easy to manage terms.

Our optometrist takes utter pride in providing excellent care for you as a patient foremost, but also as a customer and a friend. This can be extremely rare in health care today but we’d like to think you will find it a refreshing change. Finding people who care.

Dr. Green was thorough, patient and made sure I was understood the next steps in the exam. I was very pleased with the whole experience and will definitely continue to see Dr. Green ! UPDATE: my notes on doctor Green still stands 🙂 but just a tip...always confirm if they will be in office as I have driven there to get my contacts and nobody was there. Their hours on the website are not accurate as I have been told they are closed for the day when it shows them to be open or they close at 4 when it says 5 pm. I have continued to try and get my contacts and have yet to speak to someone who is actually in the office to get them. Just a bit annoyed as these are already paid for and has been 1 week since they told me I could go get them and they were closed.
