The University Eye Institute is located on the main campus of the University of Houston and has been serving the vision needs of the city of Houston since 1952.
Annual eye examinations are an integral part of preventive health care. Early diagnosis and treatment are important for maintaining good vision and when possible, preventing permanent vision loss. Even when you're not experiencing problems, regular eye exams can detect serious eye conditions that sometimes have few, if any symptoms. Evaluation of the ocular effects of diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid disease, cataracts and glaucoma are just a few of the problems that can be detected. That's why a regular visit to an optometrist is so important.
During your exam, your eye doctor will evaluate how well your eyes work with your brain to create images of the world around you—colors, light, shapes and sizes. You will be asked questions about your health, your family's medical history, instances of previous eye problems, and your work and hobbies. For example, if you spend a lot of time on the computer or participate in sports, you may benefit from eyewear that is designed to alleviate computer eye strain or to protect your eyes during physical activity. It is only through regular examinations with your optometrist that you and your family can have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that your vision health is being maintained properly.
Our team of more than 80 optometrists and subspecialty ophthalmologists is dedicated to providing patients with the highest quality eye care available. Patients are seen in one of our 80 exam rooms or specialized testing areas and are assured of receiving exceptional care.
