Moes R. Nasser, O.D.

dr.nasser
Therapeutic Optometrist, Optometric Glaucoma Specialist, Principal Owner

Dr. Nasser was born and raised in Tanzania, East Africa. He had his early education in East Africa. Dr. Nasser moved to Houston, Texas in 1976 to pursue an education in Optometry. He graduated from the University of Houston with a Doctor of Optometry in 1982 and is a Therapeutic Optometrist as well as an Optometric Glaucoma Specialist.

He began practicing in the West University area near the Texas Medical Center and then moved his practice to the Willowbrook area in April of 1984. He established Family Eye Center in July of 1988 and has since opened two additional practices located in the Deerbrook and Greenway/Galleria Area.

Dr. Nasser is a member of the Texas Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association, and an Honorary Committee Member of Prevent Blindness Texas. He serves as the administrator of Vision Source for the Houston Metropolitan Area and is on the Optometric Advisory Board for Zeiss Ophthalmic USA. Because of his diverse background, he speaks five languages other than English: Swahili, Urdu, Hindi, Karachi, and Gujarati.

He is very active volunteering within the community dealing with secular education and healthcare. An organization dear to his heart is Optometry Giving Sight to which he is a National Board Member and Honorary Chairman for the Texas to Tanzania project. In 2010, his leadership and vision took the Texas to Tanzania project to new heights, and funds were raised by doctors, patients and staff, culminating in the construction of the Bariadi Clinic in Tanzania just miles from where Dr. Nasser was born. This mobile clinic, to be renamed Lake Zone "Roshanali Nasser" Outreach Clinic in September 2018, helps thousands of people receive much-needed eye care. Dr. Moes Nasser has been listed in various articles regarding his work in Tanzania since 2008.

His love of giving back to the community is surpassed only by his love for his family. He is married to his beautiful wife Anar and has two daughters – Faria and Sarah. Faria did her undergraduate at Columbia University, received her MBA from Rice University, and now works for Teach for America as Managing Director. Sarah received her undergraduate at Tufts University in Boston, attended Columbia Law School and now works for Proskauer as an attorney.

  • Vision Source Willowbrook

We are pleased to announce that all three of our Vision Source locations will be reopening for service during the week of May 4th, 2020.

During this difficult time, we have made adjustments to our services to ensure the health and safety of your patients, our staff, and our Doctors.

For the Protection of Our Patients, we have implemented the following procedures in our clinics:

Limited Appointment Scheduling - in order to ensure we are able to properly disinfect and adhere to Social Distancing Guidelines set forth by our local authority.  Certainly, urgent and emergency patients will be prioritized.

Fever Free Environment - Temperatures will be taken upon entering the clinic of all patients, staff, and doctors.  Anyone with 99.5 degrees or higher will be asked to reschedule.  Anyone who is taking a fever-reducing medication such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen will be asked to reschedule once the medication is clear from their system so we can be sure of an accurate temperature reading.

Pre-Screening Questionnaire - We will continue to ask any patient with URI symptoms to reschedule their appointment until they have been asymptomatic for 3 days or have a negative COVID test.

Face Covering - We are requiring everyone entering our clinics to wear some type of facial covering such as a homemade mask, scarf, bandana, or handkerchief.

Wash hands and sanitize - Upon entering the office, everyone will be asked to sanitize their hands.  Additionally, we will request they sanitize their hands before re-entering the business area.

All Vision Source staff with direct patient contact will be required to wear a mask.

Social Distancing - We are limiting the number of patients in our office and are asking, when possible, only the patient enters our clinics for their visit.  Please ask the person with your patient to stay in their car.  We can text them if they need their assistance.

When scheduling patients, we will be:

  1. Asking them if they have been diagnosed with COVID or been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID.  In those cases, we will postpone seeing the patient unless emergent.
  2. We will ask if they have any current symptoms of COVID.
  3. They will be notified that upon arrival to our office they will have their temperature taken.
  4. We will ask the patients NOT to bring family members with them into the office and we ask patients to wait in the car until they are called inside for their appointment.
  5. We will ask the patient to bring their own mask or face covering.  All of our doctors and any staff who will have direct patient contact will be masked.

Thank you for your support and understanding during these unprecedented times.

Please stay safe and healthy.
