Midtown Houston Eye Doctors & Optometrists
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.
Your Museum District 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.

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.
