The North Austin Optometrist

At Texas State Optical, our eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as studying diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.

Meet Your North Austin Eye Doctors:

Our TSO Capital optometrists take the time to explain the results of your eye care service, 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.

To Our Patient Family,

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in the best interest of public health to help flatten the curve, our office will be following the CDC guidelines to postpone all routine eye care visits. We have made the decision to reduce our services to urgent/emergent eye care only until April 6th at which time we will re-evaluate.

What Does This Mean?

Although the physical office will be closed starting Saturday March 21st, there will be limited staff available to answer questions, place contact lens order, schedule urgent/emergent patients, etc. by phone at (512) 452-5735 from 9am – 1pm Monday through Friday.

Dr. Amin is still available for red eyes, sudden vision changes, injuries, and other urgent issues for both new and established patients. Please call us to schedule an appointment for urgent care.

If you have an eyeglasses or contact lens order ready for pickup, please call us to arrange a pickup time.

As always, we are here for you if you need us and if you have questions about your specific situation please feel free to call or email! God bless & stay safe!

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time!
