Visit Texas State Optical - Dowlen Road in Beaumont!

At TSO Dowlen Road, we know that to provide the best service for our patients, the first thing we have to do is LISTEN

We strive to personalize each person's eyecare to fit their individual needs The first step to achieve that goal is to have a one on one conversation to find out what optical challenges each patient is having.  We then use the latest in technological equipment to determine the most accurate prescription to meet these challenges.   It is very important to us that you have the best vision possible, for as long as possible. 

Every eye exam includes a thorough assessment of your ocular health. Our doctors watch out for ocular diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, or cataracts; all of which can threaten to steal the precious gift of vision.  If detected, we can treat these problems, or refer you to the appropriate specialist to manage them.   

Once your needs have been assessed, we aim to match the best possible eyeglass materials, designs, and lens treatments to optimize your visual correction.  We also prescribe many specialty contact lenses, for problems ranging from simple myopia or hyperopia, to astigmatism and bifocal contact lenses.  We even fit specialty contact lenses for diseased or damaged corneas.  We are on the forefront of the contact lens industry, and are among the first practices to receive and fit most new contact lens technologies.

Our frame selections are extensive and fashionable, with over 1,300 frames in stock.  Our knowledgeable opticians can fit most every budget. Our selections are constantly changing to fill your  every fashion need. We also stock a large variety of sunglasses from the most popular brands - Vera Wang, Tom Ford, Vera Bradley, Jimmy Crystal, Ray Ban, Maui Jim, Costa Del Mar, Coach, Oakley , among others. You really ought to come see our new sunglass display center!

We now carry the innovative One Day Acvue Oasys Daily Disposable Lenses

We are a full service family eyecare practice.  We care for patients from the very young to the very old, and everything in between.  We often see patients who don't need any visual  correction at all, and we send them on their way with advice on how to protect their eyes and maintain healthy vision.  On any given day, it is not our goal to sell you a pair of glasses you don't need.   It is our goal to prescribe and fit you with every pair of glasses you or your family will ever need.  We feel very lucky to have the privilege to use our skills to improve your life.  Because at the end of the day, this is what we do at TSO.... 

We help you see the Important things in life (and to look good while you are seeing it!).

Q&A with Dr. Leigh Kimball

Dr. Leigh Kimball Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Can I wear my contact lenses while I sleep?

There are contact lenses available today that allow enough oxygen to the cornea to allow for 30 days of comfortable continuous wear. This means that you can put your contacts on, wear them all day and sleep in them all night for one month. This wear schedule carries an increased risk of eye infection, and is not for everyone. But for those who can tolerate it, it provides convenient, clear vision both night and day.
