Meet Dr. Thompson

Meet Dr. Thompson

The founder of Eyes of San Antonio, Dr. Robert S. Thompson, was born and raised in Stamford, Texas. Dr. Thompson is a 1972 graduate of the University of Houston College of Optometry. While there, he earned membership in Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society and Beta Sigma Kappa Optometric Honor Society. He also served as Vice President of the University of Houston Baptist Student Union. 


After graduating, he served in the United States Army as an optometry officer for four years at Fort Sam Houston. He liked the city of San Antonio so well that he established his private practice here in 1976. Dr. Thompson earned his Therapeutic License to treat most eye diseases in 1992, and his Glaucoma Therapeutics License in 2000. He enjoys all phases of optometry, but is especially interested in contact lenses and laser vision correction. He has worn contact lenses since age 17, and derives interest and enthusiasm for his profession from his enjoyment in wearing lenses. He is also currently a member of Nuvision, a local refractive surgery network of doctors.
