Amy Bishop, O.D. earned her Doctorate of Optometry in 1994, studying at Texas A&M University and University of Houston College of Optometry. Dr. Bishop completed an internship with cornea specialist John Goosey, M.D. of Houston Eye Associates. Dr. Bishop opened Family Eye Care in Childress, Texas in 1994 and has been in private practice for over 22 years with a focus on medical optometry. She has extensive experience in managing and co-managing glaucoma, cataracts, corneal refractive surgery, macular degeneration, diabetic eye conditions, and dry eye. Dr. Bishop also enjoys fitting contact lens patients including those needing specialty fits such as scleral lenses for keratoconus and post-graft or post-RK corneal surgery patients. Her greatest passion is using the latest in technology such as the Diopsys NOVA VEP and ERG for the earliest possible detection of ocular disease. Early detection is key in the prevention of vision loss from glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, and toxicities from commonly used pharmaceuticals such as Plaquenil (hydroxycholoquin).
Dr. Bishop is licensed as a Therapeutic Optometrist and is a certified Optometric Glaucoma Specialist. She is a member of the American Optometric Association, Texas Optometric Association, and the National Glaucoma Society.
Outside of practicing optometry, Dr. Bishop enjoys spending as much time as possible with her three children.
