The University of Houston College of Optometry is affiliated with four neighborhood-based satellite healthcare clinics to provide eye and vision care at reduced cost to thousands within the Houston and Dallas communities. Each day, patients at these clinics have access to a team of caring, well trained optometric professionals who are dedicated to providing the highest quality of eye care available. Each clinic provides a range of services, including comprehensive eye examinations as well as diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. Patients can receive prescriptions for both glasses and contact lenses at each location. Eligibility for reduced rates is determined based on a sliding scale. Medicare and Medicaid is accepted in most instances.
