Ryan Young

Director of Operations

Originally born in Canada but raised in Houston, Ryan will always consider Texas home.  He has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical Science from Texas A&M University and spent over ten years in pharmaceutical sales prior to making a career change to help his wife, Dr. Young, manage and operate TSO Woodlands.  During his pharmaceutical career, Ryan consulted and successfully represented products in therapeutic areas such as gastroenterology, rheumatology, and hepatitis.  He especially enjoyed his time as the district trainer and in specialty sales.  He is a certified optician by the American Board of Opticianry and strongly believes in continuing education courses to stay on top of the exciting changes in the industry.

“Our wonderful, friendly staff combined with the clinical expertise of Dr. Young and Dr. Clair helps our practice make every patient experience as positive as possible.”  One of Ryan’s favorite aspects in the office includes working with first time progressive patients who often times are frustrated and anxious to find the best solution to their visual needs.   Also, Ryan has special interests in rimless eyewear,  high definition digital lenses, prescription sunglasses, and safety/industrial frames.  “I feel very fortunate to live and work in The Woodlands and help our patients see their best.  Every patient’s needs are different, and I enjoy offering recommendations in a way patients can easily understand.”

Ryan is married to Dr. Young and together enjoy spending time with their family including daughters Brooklyn, 8, Ella, 4, and London, 18 months.  Ryan also enjoys playing tennis, the occasional round of golf, and cheering for his Houston Texans and Houston Rockets.

To Our Patient Family,

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and in the best interest of public health to help flatten the curve, our office will be following the CDC guidelines to postpone all routine eye care visits. We have made the decision to reduce our services to urgent/emergent eye care only until April 4th at which time we will re-evaluate.

What Does This Mean?

Although the physical office will be closed starting Saturday March 21st, there will be limited staff available to answer questions, place contact lens order, schedule urgent/emergent patients, etc. by phone from 10am – 4pm Monday through Friday.

We are offering to extend contact lens prescriptions for up to 6 months for current patients without any vision problems. If you are in need of contact lenses, please call the office at 281-681-3937 to discuss or to place an order.

Dr. Young is still available for red eyes, sudden vision changes, injuries, and other urgent issues for both new and established patients. Call the office to schedule an appointment if you feel your need meets these criteria.

If you have glasses ordered that are ready for pickup, we will be delivering or shipping those to you at no cost and will contact you with information. Call the office with questions.

Contact lens orders will be delivered direct to you with no cost for shipping also.

As always, we are here for you if you need us and if you have questions about your specific situation please feel free to call or email! God bless & stay safe!

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time!
