Proudly serving patients in these areas

Plano, Frisco, Dallas, Richardson, McKinney, Allen

I have been a pediatric Optometrist for most of my years in practice. I have always strived to look at new and innovative solutions to help my pediatric patients process vision information more efficiently and effectively. As the myopia epidemic has continued to progress, we have been on the forefront of helping children slow down the progression of myopia. Helping children reach their highest potential is what we have always been about…this is what drives us.
