I have known Dr. Mann for the past 33 years. He has helped me so much with my vision whether it be contacts or glasses. He recommends what is good for your eyes and how to keep them healthy. My whole family goes to visit him. He is that good. He is very patient and understanding and doesn’t rush through the appointment. His staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. He truly is a doctor who cares for his patients. I highly recommend him and Southmore TSO to anyone needing a good optometrist.

From the time I walked in, the staff acknowledged me with a hello how may we help you. The physician was very informative, explained everything in detail. The staff took lots of time helping me out with choosing a nice pair of frames…I would recommend Southmore Texas State Optical to family and friends.

I had delightful experience at the eye Doctor last night. Everyone was professional, informative, helpful, and polite. The eye exam was not stressful. All the test were comfortable an reassuring. The Doc showed me a whole new world threw the new lens he is going to make me for my new glasses. I was blown away. I strongly recommend this place if you need to see the eye Doctor. I’m going to be sending my brother for his eye exam. Thanks for the great experience TSO!!!!

This is a wonderful place to get your eyes checked and then get your glasses or contacts. I’ve been going here for years. The doctors are knowledgeable and friendly. I love the fact that they have a machine that takes a picture of the back of your eyes- no more getting your eyes dilated! The staff will make certain that you will look good in your new glasses and help you get the best deal possible. Natalie helped me with my contacts this time and she is excellent.

I didn’t use health insurance on my last visit and I thought it was going to be more expensive than it was. I paid about the same for an eye exam and frames than I did for frames alone at the Walmart Vision Center with insurance!! I loved the service as well. Everyone was so friendly and informative. The doctor and staff both made sure I knew what they were doing and why! I am definitely getting my checkups here from now on!!

I originally went to the TSO Southmore location because they had the best reviews. I was very impressed with the friendliness of Araceli. I went with my husband for his appointment with Dr. Mann. He said Dr. Mann was very knowledgeable and explained things well. Dr. Mann is also friendly. Afterward, Isabel helped my husband with his glasses. He is very particular and had a lot of questions and requests about his pair. Isabel was VERY knowledgeable about her products and when she did t know, she made a call. She said she couldn’t do a good job for the patient if she didn’t know the product. Wow! She spent two hours with my husband explaining many options and giving the different prices depending on which way he decided to go. She was friendly and nice the whole time. Several people came in and out during my visits and were always taken care of. I appreciated that the waiting room was not jam-packed. It meant we saw our doctors close the actual time of our appointments without waiting for hours. I would recommend the Southmore location to others. Great experience.
