A High-Standards Community Eye-Care Facility Nestled in Spring, TX

By Elizabeth R. Elstien

Spring Eye Care is a full-scope optometric facility owned by Dr. Brian Cox, OD. Here you can get all your vision and medical eye-care needs met utilizing their full ophthalmic dispensary and lab. "I am considered the community optometrist," he says, "as my office is conveniently settled near the new Grand Parkway." Holding the highest level of licensure granted by the Texas Optometry Board, Dr. Cox is involved in the local eye-care community serving as a board member for Harris County Optometric Society and as an active member of both the Texas Optometry Association and the American Optometric Association.

Dr. Cox is a Texas native who has a Bachelor's degree in Biology from Oklahoma City University, spent two years doing research at UT Southwestern Medical School and graduated with top honors from the University of Houston College of Optometry (UHCO). Honors bestowed on him from UHCO include being the 2009 AOF-Carl Zeiss Vision Fellow and an excellence in vision therapy award.

Owning his own clinic allows Dr. Cox to utilize all his skills and experience. He states, "I pride myself in full scope optometry and providing the best optometric care to the patient." Although he works with patients of all ages, he has worked extensively with some of the top pediatric vision therapists in the United States.

He uses the most up-to-date eye care while both diagnosing and treating common eye conditions, such as cataracts, glaucoma and "pink eye", as well as general vision care, such as fitting for contacts or prescribing eye glass lenses. "I can diagnose and manage glaucoma in addition to writing oral antibiotics and oral analgesics for medical optometric needs," Dr. Cox tell us. He also treats eye injuries which may occur on the job, playing sports or while at home.

Need more than eye glasses to improve your vision? Vision therapy, a sequence of procedures to develop efficient visual skills and processing, may be prescribed and monitored by Dr. Cox at Spring Eye Care as another path to increased vision. Procedures use lenses, prisms, filters and other instruments as monitored by Dr. Cox in his office, as well as daily vision-therapy practices done at the patient's home.

If you just need a new pair of stylish frames, Spring Eye Care has that too. Dr. Cox says, "We have many name-brand frames including Oakley, Ray Ban, Maui Jim, Vera Bradley and Nike."
