Meet Your Briargrove Eye Doctor:
Dr. Del Sardo takes 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 doctor encourages you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
Dr. Wayne Maltz is a therapeutic optometrist who has been practicing family eye care at TSO offices since 1986 when he became a member of the TSO network of eye care. Since that time, he has served the communities of Champions, Champion Forest and Spring, TX with high quality eye care services.
He is a graduate of the University of Houston College of Optometry with a Doctor of Optometry degree which he earned in 1973. He takes a special interest in Vision Therapy and Corneal Refractive Therapy. Dr. Maltz and his wife, Beulah, are the parents of two grown children.
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 eye exams and medical exams. She prescribes glasses, soft contact lenses and rigid gas permeable contact lenses. 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 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.
She loves to travel internationally for vacation and optometry mission trips. In her spare time she spends time with her family and decorates her house.
Michael Del Sardo, O.D., is a Therapeutic Optometrist at the TSO Briargrove office location. Dr. Del Sardo has been affiliated with Texas State Optical since 1997. Dr. Del Sardo practices full scope optometry which includes eye exams, contact lens fitting, treatment of eye diseases, and co-management of pre and post-op cataract and LASIK patients. He is a graduate of the University of Houston, College of Optometry, where he earned a Doctorate of Optometry degree in 1995. As an undergraduate, he attended Texas A&M University.
Dr. Del Sardo specializes 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. As your optometrist he knows how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and understands the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses.
Dr. Dieu-Hong Ho was born in Vietnam and raised in Houston, TX. She graduated from Stanford University with a Bachelor of Arts in Developmental Psychology in June 2012 and received her Doctorate of Optometry degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Houston College of Optometry in May 2016. She continued her optometric training with a residency in pediatric optometry and binocular vision at the University of Houston College of Optometry, which she completed June 2017.
During her residency, Dr. Ho worked with pediatric patients and those with binocular vision anomalies in the pediatric clinic, special needs patients in the Non-invasive Objective Visual Assessment (NOVA) clinic and the Special Needs Adult and Pediatric Service (SNAPS) clinic, and patients who have previously suffered brain injuries and stroke in the Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation clinic at UHCO. She also saw patients at The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research (TIRR).
In her spare time, Dr. Ho enjoys traveling and spending time with her family and friends.
