        Welcome to Texas State Optical Woodlands
        Texas State Optical, TSO Woodlands is an independently owned optometry practice dedicated to providing excellence in eye care and optical services for The Woodlands, Spring, and surrounding north Houston communities. After practicing for five years as a partner in a private practice in southeast Houston, Dr. Linh Yee-Young moved to The Woodlands and opened TSO Woodlands in February 2008. TSO Woodlands is affiliated with the Texas State Optical network of Doctors of Optometry, who have cared for the eyes of Texas for over 75 years. We are also independently unique in order to cater to the needs of the patients within our community.

        Dr. Young and her husband, Ryan, decided to relocate to The Woodlands to be closer to their family and with the hopes of starting a family of their own. Strong family values have always been the core backbone of Dr. Young’s upbringing, so it was her desire to build her practice around those beliefs. Her practice philosophy is caring for patients through good communication while earning their trust, just as you would trust a family member. As a patient, trusting your doctor is crucial to understanding your eye care needs so that you can maintain healthy vision thorughout your lifetime.

        Dr. Young and Dr. Levy were very thorough in checking and diagnosing my eye problem. I'm thankful they urged me to see a physician to help with blood pressure, but also refered me to a specialist for my needs. Definitely recommend Woodlands TSO

        First time visiting as a client! The front desk crew seemed a little nervous at first but I kind of broke the ice with a little joke. They are a beautiful crew to be around! Everyone willing to assist! I would go back in a heartbeat! I can say they do know what they are doing!

        I had a great time at Texas State Optical (TSO) in The Woodlands. It was a bit tricky to find (tucked away in a corner next to Bed Bath & Beyond) but well worth the search. Arline spent time with me helping me to find the right sunglasses to fit my needs, my face shape, and my style. She brought out lots of different options for me to try on and was so helpful and supportive helping me to choose the ones that were perfect for me. This was a great atmosphere to shop in and I really appreciated the friendly faces and enjoyed my experience there. I felt safe due to all the COVID protocols that were being followed. Most of the people allowed in were by appointment only. The front door was locked, and staff came outside to check people in or answer questions. Temperatures were taken at the door and everyone who entered was asked to sanitize their hands. WE had to sign a paper stating the date that we arrived, our contact information, and our temperatures. This seems like a good idea in case any contract tracing is necessary. Everyone wore masks the whole time we were there. I could pull the mask down to see how I looked in a set of glasses and then I put my mask back up again. It was immensely helpful to be able to see my facial features with a set of glasses.

As a healthcare provider, your health is our top priority and we feel that this decision will help minimize any potential unnecessary illness for patients and staff. Masks can be provided if needed. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this challenging time as we strive to continue providing the highest level of care to all of our patients.

        Warmest Regards,
        Dr. Young and TSO Woodlands Staff
