Located inside your local neighbourhood Wal-Mart, our Irving eye doctors specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as eye diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Optometrists know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for both children and adults, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.
Our optometrists take the time to explain the results of your 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.

Meet our Optometrists:
As a Doctor of Optometry, part of my commitment to my patients is ongoing professional education. As technology and the world around us changes, I have to keep up-to-date, because I have to provide the best care possible for your eyes.
My educational background consists of an undergraduate Honors specialist degree in Biochemistry with a minor in Chemistry and Economics from the University of Toronto in 1995
My post graduate training is a Doctor of Optometry degree from Indiana University, class of 2000. My externship sites have included the Vision Institute of Canada, an institution that is focused on primary care and pediatrics, and the John Kenyon eye center in Louisville Kentucky, a premier ophthalmology practice that was one of the first to do refractive eye surgery in the United States.
During my academic career, I was involved with VOSH, Volunteer Optometric Service for Humanity, where we provided vision care to indigent people in Mexico and as an officer in the American Optometric Students Association at the local level.
In 2001, I became certified as an Optometric Glaucoma Specialist, which allows me to diagnose and treat glaucoma.
When I am not seeing patients, I like to spend time with my family, travel and read. I am also an active member of the Plano Chamber of Commerce and the Dallas County Optometric Society. I have been providing patient care to the cities of Irving, Dallas, Grandprairie, and Arlington.
