About TSO

office_entryTexas State Optical was established in 1936 when the Rogers family opened the first TSO office in Beaumont, Texas. Our founders planned for TSO’s continuous growth and expansion of services, but not without first building a foundation of patient care and quality products that stand the test of time. It became their vision to offer patients convenient locations, qualified Doctors of Optometry and a complete line of competitively priced eyewear that is fashionable and functional. These core values have remained unchanged throughout the years.

“Eyewear You Want
From Doctors
You Trust”.

Today, the TSO family has grown to become a respected organization of doctor-owned and operated eye care practices in Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma.

TSO has also earned recognition as the largest single provider of vision insurance plans in Texas and the Southwest. It’s very likely that TSO is a provider for your vision plan. A quick call to the TSO Southwest eye clinic nearest you can verify that important information.

Southwest Eye Doctor Near Me

When patients need eye care, their first step is a complete doctor’s examination from a doctor they trust. They then turn to a trained TSO Southwest optical care staff to provide them with eyewear that helps them see and look better. Standards of care throughout TSO include Southwest eye doctors who have earned therapeutic licenses to treat many medical eye care conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts and childhood vision problems.

“We’re not
Texas State Optical
By Chance,
But By Choice”.

Combining professionalism and personal attention of eye doctors who live and work in your community supports TSO’s promise to our patients to provide “Eyewear you want from doctors you trust”.

We’re proud of our history and excited about the future as we continue to help TSO patients enjoy the best vision possible. After all, we’re not Texas State Optical by chance, but by choice. We’ve grown into our name and will continue to work hard at keeping our patients satisfied and coming back with their family and friends to benefit from TSO’s long tradition of excellence in quality eye care and eyewear.

Dear Patients and Community

Local authorities have ordered a Stay Home order for most businesses in Houston/Harris county. We are currently operating from 10am-12pm for URGENT eye care visits (red eyes, infections, eye injuries, etc...), but no routine/wellness exams are being performed at this time. Furthermore, were are providing "Curbside" pickup of eyeglasses and contact lenses during those hours.

If contact lens wearers currently have less than three (3) months supply remaining, we highly recommend that they call to place an order now. Our doctors will approve up to an additional six (6) months supply. Furthermore, we will waive contact lenses shipping charges and ship directly to a home address at no charge.

With the day to day changes surrounding COVID19, we do not know how much longer our office will be open to the public. Due to this situation, we ask that any remaining glasses or contact lens supplies be picked up as soon as possible.

We thank you for your understanding and loyalty during this difficult time. Wishing you and you health and looking forward to serving you again soon.
