At Texas State Optical Pearland we value the importance of learning. Being educated about your eye health can be complicated – and might even seem overwhelming at first. To simplify things for our patients, we’ve created our Eye Health Library, a comprehensive library of vision-related information.
Pearland Eye Care
We invite you to browse through our library to find information that will help you better understand how your vision works, common eye conditions, surgeries and how your vision changes as you age.
Learn more about our Pearland Eye Health and Eye Care:
While certainly not a complete eye care dictionary, the EyeGlass Guide Glossary covers many of the common eye care conditions, terms and technology you’ll commonly discuss with your eye care professional.
The human eye is a marvel of built-in engineering, combining reflected light, lens imaging capability, multiple lighting adjustments and information processing—all in the space of your eyeball. When working properly, the human eye converts light into impulses that are conveyed to the brain and interpreted as images.
If you work in a hazardous environment like a construction zone or workshop, or participate in ball sports or extreme sports—sturdy, shatter-and-impact-resistant eyewear is a must. This is particularly important when considering eye protection for both children and adults.
Seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams whether or not you wear glasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp. The articles below explain what problems can be spotted with an eye exam, what’s involved in a comprehensive exam, and special considerations for kids and contacts.
Eye problems can range from mild to severe; some are chronic, while others may resolve on their own, never to appear again. The articles below will give you a basic understanding of some of these problems and their implications. The cardinal rule is if your eyes don't look good, feel good or see well, you should visit your doctor.
If you are among the 85 million Baby Boomers in the United States and Canada (born between 1946 and 1964), you've probably noticed your eyes have changed. Most notably, presbyopia - the normal, age-related loss of near focusing ability - usually becomes a problem in our 40's, requiring new vision correction solutions. Learn about measures you can take to keep seeing clearly for years to come.
Just as our physical strength decreases with age, our eyes also exhibit an age-related decline in performance - particularly as we reach our 60's and beyond. Some age-related eye changes are perfectly normal, but others may signal a disease process. It's important to recognize signs and symptoms, and perhaps even more important to mitigate the effects of aging with some simple and common-sense strategies.

"I went in yesterday to have my eyes checked for the very first time in my 28 years of life and I can absolutely say that Dr. Dang is one of the best eye doctors out there. I had a thorough check up and did dilation which was good coz I was able to have a better understanding of my eye health. Everything went smooth. Texas State Optical is run by a family. Dr. Dang's wife is the front office associate herself and they have the best customer service. I'd give them 6 stars out of 5."

"I went in yesterday with my two little ones (1 and 3) but I was the one getting the exam. My mom was supposed to care for them while I attended the appointment, but she got stuck on the other side of town. The receptionist and Dr. Dang didn't think that we'd be able to make it through my detailed exam, but we did. They made sure that my kiddos were comfortable and were very patient with me considering the circumstances. Dr. Dang performed my exam and was very thorough. He realized that I needed to see a specialist because my eye problems were more than what he was able to handle. After realizing this, he gave me information for a referral to someone who could help, and the best part was that he didn't even charge me! He showed his true concern, made sure that I understood everything concerning my eye issues and directed me to a specialist who could help. I highly recommend Texas State Optical Pearland!"
