Provider Statement

Dr. Maria Courson was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and raised in Orange, Texas along with four brothers. Until college, Dr. Courson was homeschooled by her mother, moving forward to attend McNeese State University in Lake Charles, LA and ultimately University of Houston College of Optometry.

Dr. Courson is a licensed Glaucoma Specialist and Therapeutic Optometrist. A family friendly career and helping people in all realms of life is why Dr. Courson chose Optometry as her field of choice. She specializes in treatment of Glaucoma, red eyes, dry eye disease, binocular vision disorders (amblyopia, strabismus, etc), rigid gas permeable, scleral contact lens fits and pediatric examinations as early as three months old. Dr. Courson also prescribes lenses to correct astigmatism, myopia, and presbyopia and manage cataract, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration.

In her spare time, you might see Dr. Courson at the movie theatre! She loves festivals, gardening, cooking and baking, going to church, singing, home improvements, going to the firing range, traveling and mostly spending time with her husband. Dr. Courson is mainly fluent in English but can also get through an eye exam in Spanish! Her professional interests include surgical approaches, using amniotic membrane, punctual plugs and foreign body removal to improve corneal disorders, eye comfort and visual blur. She enjoys medical research and keeping up with current articles about Optometric management and eye disease.

The staff here were so helpful and so friendly! I only had to wait a few minutes before being called back. The office was clean and they wiped down everything before each test! (I'm a germaphobe so this is huge for me!) The doctor spent so much time with me and made sure that she explained everything and also spent some time trying to get to know me, making me feel super comfortable. I will definitely go back to this location from now on!!!!!!! Recommend it for anyone looking for a new eye doc in the med center/museum district! -KS

I've been a customer here for two years. Today a screw fell out of my eye glasses and Denise was able to fix them and give me a new case free of charge! Talk about customer service! Deb was very welcoming and helpful when I walked in. -David B.

Overall Rating:

couldn't be happier with Dr. Courson and with TSO! The initial eye exam was very thorough. I needed to be refitted with a different brand and prescription of contact lenses and the two follow-up visits were very helpful in making sure the prescription was what I needed. The staff is very professional and friendly and the location is extremely convenient with plenty of parking available. I would not hesitate to recommend the doctors and this office to everyone. -Bridgitt D.

Overall Rating:

What a wonderful experience. I always dread going to a new eye doctor because of what was diagnosed as lazy eye. Dr. Coursing was very knowledgeable and helpful. I feel much better about my eyes than I ever have. The rest of the staff was also friendly and knowledgeable. -Paul Ward
