Meet Your Briargrove Eye Doctor:

Texas State Optical eye optometrists 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, our TSO eye doctors encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Dr. Wayne Maltz

Dr. Wayne Maltz

Dr. Wayne Maltz is a Therapeutic and Glaucoma certified optometrist and a 1973 graduate of the University of Houston College of Optometry. 
Dr Maltz has been practicing in the Champions Forest/Spring area since 1988 serving the area with high quality eyecare.
After obtaining his Optometric Degree Dr Maltz realized that he had a vision processing problem. As a result of this he specialized in Vision Therapy. During a routine exam he tests and probes the visual system to see if there are additional processing problems a patient may have.
He specializes in fitting Contact Lenses, both regular and the more difficult Soft and Rigid Gas Permeable lenses and was certified by Paragon Vision Sciences more than fifteen years ago to fit their CRT reshaping lenses.
In addition, he fits large scleral lenses to eyes that have special needs. This
includes treatment for Kerataconus, Dry Eye Disease and those eyes that have undergone corneal grafts or corneal replacement.
He enjoys the outdoors, especially anything involving water: boating, fishing, waterskiing.
Married to his wife Beulah for 48years, they have two grown children.
Dr. Ayesha Butt

Dr. Ayesha Butt

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.
