Dr. Ayesha Butt grew up in Toronto, Canada. She graduated with honors from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Science degree in Cell and Molecular Biology. She studied Optometry at the University of Waterloo, School of Optometry and Vision Science, Canada. At the University of Waterloo, she earned distinction, special recognition, and clinical excellence awards for soft and rigid contact lenses.
Dr. Butt is certified by the National Board of Examiners in Optometry and the Texas state Optometry Board. She offers full routine eye examinations as well as medical eye examinations focusing on ocular health. She prescribes glasses, soft contact lenses and rigid gas permeable contact lenses. She specializes in difficult contact lens cases such as keratoconus and post corneal transplant and uses the best technology to co-manage with the local ophthalmologists to prevent progression. Additionally, she is certified to fit overnight reshaping or orthokeratology contact lenses so that children and adults can be glasses free during the day. She loves working with children. Unlike the typical children exam that you might receive elsewhere, she also assesses binocular vision, where the vision might be 20/20 in each eye but both eyes do not work together. This condition can cause eyestrain when reading, headaches, and loss of 3D vision.
As a therapeutic optometrist she is actively involved with the management of dry eyes, ocular infections and allergies. She tests and monitors quantity and quality of natural tears and uses state of the art technology to examine lids and lashes to make a treatment plan specific for individual patients. She is also an optometric glaucoma specialist who has gained most of her clinical externship experience in Houston while diagnosing and managing diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and age related macular degeneration. She also co- manages LASIK and Cataract surgery patients with local ophthalmologists.
Dr. Butt is a member of the American Optometric Association and Texas Optometric Association. She enjoys spending time with her husband and her two boys. She loves to travel internationally for vacation and optometry mission trips.
