Have you ever been convinced that something was so unlikely that you just had to SEE it for yourself?

This may cause you to reflect on the childhood mystery of Santa and his flying reindeer, or the Tooth Fairy; yet, unlike most parents, mine did NOT lead younger, and smaller me to believe in fictional characters.

Instead, I was certain they made up the idea of "sea-horses" to help expand my small imagination. 

There are many ways to describe the instant gratification in proving something to be less of a mystery and more of a wonder, but as I gawked in curious wonderment at these creatures under water, I stood speechless, unable to look away. Inside that large salt -water filled aquarium, a more exciting world revealed itself, offering an uncertain child more than just facts, but a hopeful gratitude for creation!

Fast forward ten years. I am a young adventurous teenager, ready to join in on the over- exaggerated excitement in driving. All too confident in my acquired knowledge of the inflated fuel economy, way too many traffic laws and parallel parking, I waltzed into the DMV office only to fail the vision test. Thus resulting in NO driver's permit for me.

May it be all too easy to disappoint a teenager, I, however, couldn't shake the devastation felt when told that your vision is too impaired to safely drive on Texas roads. So, my world was now coming to an end. 

Unconvinced of the severity of said tragedy, still, my mother sought the care of an Optometrist. 
My eye doctor positioned the phoropter in front of my eyes, while simultaneously creating the same fascination felt when I was a small child standing in front of the Sea World aquarium. That confident hope and thankfulness came flooding back as I read the 20/20 line out loud. 

Clearly seeing is one of the greatest senses gifted to us! All around us, there is something and someone worth seeing!

Now, having the opportunity to work in the field of optometry, I get to witness, daily, that awesome wonder and gratification by others!

That is why, friends, I love glasses SO much!

Testimonial

"Great clinic!  The staff and Dr. Wood is very professional and thorough.  They ensured all out needs were met.  Dr. Wood has an excellent bedside manner and explained everything thoroughly and I felt he was genuinely concerned for me and my children."

-Ed P.

"I just recently bought a pair of prescription glasses as well as sunglasses. Extremely satisfied w both. The quality of the lens is fantastic. Marsan was very patient and helpful when trying on new glasses. Went back to pick up and experienced the same kind treatment from Diego. Would highly recommend Wood Vision Source"

-Adriana Garza
"Bobby Wood Jr. OD was very detailed in the explanation of his assessment of my eye health and medical plan of care. He gave his time to answer my questions and concerns. Ruben Ayala was excellent with my eyeglass fitting, and went above and beyond to assure my new Rudy Project glasses would arrive before my upcoming bicycle tour. The entire staff was courteous and professional. Thank you for your up to date and cutting edge care and technology!"
