Eye exams & precise treatments

Our optometric technologies are state-of-the-art – thereby ensuring that your eye exam is precise and detailed. Dr. Pannapara will evaluate your visual acuity thoroughly to ensure that your vision prescription for eyeglasses and contact lenses is up-to-date. In addition, we will inspect your inner eye tissues carefully for optimal eye health. If we detect the signs of an ocular disease, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma, our Northwest Houston eye doctor will provide advanced treatments to manage your condition.

Pediatric eye care – we love kids, and kids love us!

When children can’t see well, they can’t learn or play well. An undetected vision condition can get in the way of your child’s learning, coordination, and social development. That’s why regular pediatric eye exams are absolutely critical!

Dr. Pannapara specializes in checking kids’ eyes gently, paying close attention to all parts of functional vision. We make sure to treat all of our young patients with a reassuring manner, so your child will look forward to coming back for follow-up eye exams and vision therapy, as needed. Don’t wait until your child suffers from a learning problem in school or becomes frustrated by poor performance on the sports field. Be sure to book routine pediatric eye exams with our Northwest Houston, Spring Branch, and optometrist.

Q&A with Dr. Pannapara | Dry Eyes?

How do I know if I have Dry Eye?

Dry eye can cause quite a few symptoms, anything from the eyes actually feeling dry to the eyes watering often, or having a burning, itchy, or irritated feeling. One of the most common symptoms is the eyes feeling gritty or like something is in your eye. Most people will often experience blurred vision since the tears, which comprise the outermost surface of the eye, are unstable.

Is there anything I can do to prevent DES?

Dry eye is multi-factorial, and each person’s dry eye is unique to them. To help prevent dry eye, make sure to consume 8 to 10 glasses of water per day to avoid dehydration. Some nutritional supplements, such as fish oil and flax seed oil, can contribute to a more stable tear layer.

Remember to blink regularly and take breaks often when on a computer, cell phone or when watching television. During times of the year when there is less humidity, a humidifier might be helpful to provide more moisture in the air.

Eyewear can boost your confidence!
