Our Eye Care Team

Our Katy eye care professionals at Texas State Optical 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. Eye doctors 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.

The Katy Optometrist at Texas State Optical

The Katy eye care center optometrist, Dr. Virani, takes the time to explain the results of your Katy eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
