Caring for the Eyes of Texas

Caring for the Eyes of Texas

The Texas State Optical Kerrville eye doctors believe in looking at the big picture when it comes to your eye health, so we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history and your vision needs. Doctors Peña and Avirett know that getting the right prescription involves balancing several factors, including clear eyesight, visual efficiency and your ability to process visual information seamlessly. Whether you need a routine eye examination, an eyeglasses fitting or treatment for eye disease (such as glaucoma or macular degeneration) or eye surgery (such as LASIK or cataract surgery), our optometrists will provide you with the best care, advice, options and follow up.

Client Testimonials

"Everyone is so freindly and want to make sure you leave 100% satisfied and are willing to answer any questions you may have."

Sydney A.

"I had a great experience here at TSO. The customer service was excellent and the staff was very knowledgeable. Angie was great at getting us settled with our insurance questions and explaining our covered services. Thank you for being amazing!"

Jessica L.

"I am visiting from California and I accidentally sat on my glasses. After a day of wearing prescription sunglasses non-stop as a replacement, my mom suggested that I stop in here to see if they would be able to fix my frames. The staff is so friendly and I offered to pay for the repair, but they insisted it was’t necessary. They went above and beyond for someone who is not a patient there. I’m so thankful!! 👏🏻"
