For my entire life, I have always used my Grandfather and Aunt for eye exams and contacts. My Aunt has recently retired so I have no one to go to for eye exams anymore. Can anyone recommend a good optometrist in Katy or the west Houston area?

I like that my Aunt had some fancy equipment where you looked at an image and it determined what prescription you needed for contacts and/or glasses. I would prefer that my new optometrist would have the same equipment. It sure beats looking at the eye chart while they rotate the lens back and forth asking which one looks clearer. Thanks.

I use Berkeley Eye Center downtown, but they have an office in Katy.

Best place I found is Costco. The service is the same as you would get anywhere but they charge 50-75% for exams and eyeglasses as a typical optometrist.

Since you state Katy, I am going to highly recommend Grand Vision, off of 99 & Bay Hill (next to Kroger). Their website is www.grandvisionkaty.com.

Why would I recommend them?? I went to Dr. Brett thinking I needed a prescription for Restasis. I had just moved from WI, this was my first visit there. He diagnosed me with cataracts (I was 32). He spent 45 minutes with me, explaining LOTS! He has handled all of my follow up care and answered every single question I asked. Even better, he never made me feel like I was taking too long. His answers are also in laymen's terms...very easy to understand. They have more equipment then other eye dr's I have been to. I have had to do a little of the 1 or 2 test, but nothing compared to past experiences with different offices.

Dr. Brett is in practice with his brother, whom I have seen once and seems great. They also have eye glass frames to choose from and can do glasses in house. I highly recommend them.
