Congratulations Dr. Kevin Katz!


The Doctors of TSO would like to extend congratulations to Kevin Katz, OD of the Texas State Optical office in Galveston, TX for receiving the honor of being named Optometrist of the Year at the 112th annual convention of the Texas Optometric Association held earlier this month in Austin, Texas.

Emphasis on the Optometrist of the Year denotes one who’s cumulative service to the time of presentation has reached proportions that merit recognition. With Dr. Katz being a Doctor of TSO for over 30 years, his experience alone warrants his success and the acknowledgment he rightfully deserves!

When asked about his accomplishments as the 2011- 2012 TOA President, Executive Director BJ Avery stated, “Dr. Katz has done amazing things! He furthered TOA’s public health commitment, through regional meetings throughout the entire state. The goal of educating doctors, patients and the public about the fact that optometrists are primary care practitioners treating diabetic conditions and glaucoma was imperative in his annual plan. He emphasized communication with all of those constituencies and continues to encourage the education about these conditions, among many. He put together a board retreat where TOA leaders worked on taking optometry into the next two decades. Dr. Katz doubled attendance of doctors’ staffs at the TOA convention through dual track education, and that’s just a few of his accomplishments.”

Please take the time to contact Dr. Katz to congratulate on his tremendous achievements!
