Eye care professionals and optometrists, specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision—many of which do not always have obvious symptoms. The eye doctors of the Museum District TSO in Midtown Houston Texas know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Meet your Local TSO Museum Eye Doctors:
During your visit to our optical boutique, our optometrists will take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Dr. Angela Marcaccio, the daughter of an Optometrist, is a native Houstonian graduating from the University Of Houston College Of Optometry in 1982. Dr. Marcaccio completed her undergraduate work at Texas A&M. (Go Aggies!) Dr. Marcaccio is a frustrated Fashion Designer whose only outlet is to have incredibly hip frames in her store for her patients. Her pet peeve is people wearing old style bifocals or ill-fitting frames because LIFE’S TOO SHORT TO WEAR UGLY SHOES OR UGLY GLASSES. Her goal is to provide superior eye care services and unique frames or the latest in contact lenses for her patients. Being born at the end of the Baby Boomer generation, Dr. Marcaccio understands the vision problems we are all experiencing but vows to fight Mother Nature all the way (and to help her patients look good while doing it). Dr. Marcaccio is not only fluent in English but fluent in Spanish as well.
She loves caring for her senior patients at Texas State Optical and solving the problems associated with the aging of the eyes and is still seeing many of her father’s 2nd and 3rd generation patients. In addition, those middle aged baby boomers in denial are a special favorite of hers. She lives with her husband of 30 years, their daughter (attending UT at Austin) and their 3 dogs. Dr. Marcaccio believes that LIFE IS GOOD.
A native Texan, Linda Matocha grew up just south of Houston in Freeport, TX. She did her undergraduate work at University of Houston and graduated from the University Of Houston College Of Optometry in 1985. After working for an HMO in Houston for 4 years, Dr. Matocha joined the TSO family in November 1989 at the Memorial City location. She joined the Museum District TSO team in the fall of 2013 and Downtown TSO in 2017. Dr. Matocha now splits her time between Memorial City TSO, Museum District TSO and Downtown TSO.
Dr. Matocha is a therapeutic optometrist who practices full-scope optometry, including comprehensive eye examinations, all types of contact lens fittings, dry eye treatment and co-management of LASIK and cataracts. Memorial City TSO, Museum District TSO and Downtown TSO carry over 750 frames and sunglasses in the latest styles to meet all patient’s needs.
She and her husband Hal, a native Houstonian and petroleum Landman, moved from the suburbs to the Museum District area in 2006. Avid sports fans, they support the Houston home teams in baseball, football, basketball and soccer. They combined their love of travel and sports by visiting every major league baseball team’s stadium. In 2005, they finished this quest. They then worked on seeing the Astros in every team’s stadium, finishing that quest in Oakland in 2015. Together, Dr. Matocha and Hal have also been to all 50 states in the U.S. To keep balanced, they also enjoy the musicals at the Hobby Center and spending time with their very large extended family.
