Our Optometrists

TSO Eye care professionals, or optometrists, are experts at knowing the inner workings of the human eye, as well as disorders and conditions that impact your vision—which often don’t have clear obvious indications. The Katy Eye Doctors know the risk factors that affect eye sight for people of all ages. Our Eye Doctors comprehend the plusses and minuses of corrective lenses, both as contact lenses and eyeglass lenses.

Meet Your Katy Fry Eye Doctors:

Our Eye Doctor is happy to review your eye test results with you, delineate your choices and hear your vision care requirements. As retaining satisfactory eye health is an ongoing relationship, the Katy Fry Road TSO Optometrist looks forward to your questions as well as hearing about your health history, which may be crucial to tracking, evaluating, and addressing possible eye sight challenges. We are happy to serve the nearby community of Cinco Ranch, TX.
