We are a small, patient-centered, full service optometry office. We manage a variety of eye conditions including cataracts, dry eye, keratoconus, lazy eyes and offer routine and emergent eye exams.
We pride ourselves on spending extra time with each patient to get to know them and their unique eye care needs. We take care of patients of all ages from very young children to their great grandparents and everyone in between!
"She’s the Ted Lasso of eye doctors."
Been seeing Dr. Farmer since for over 15 years. She’s like family to us and is simply the best. Nobody will care as much about your eyes and also how you are doing as a person. She’s the Ted Lasso of eye doctors
PS I now live in Austin but have driven to Houston just to see her for my eye appointments. I refuse to switch, she really is that great.
"I will definitely go here again and I highly recommend going here for any of your vision healthcare needs!"
I saw Dr. Abuharb after I was in a car accident and started seeing a light in my eye. She was very thorough in explaining what I was experiencing and also reassuring as well. I was able to get in and out in a timely fashion without feeling rushed. They were able to get me in on short notice, the staff was extremely helpful and kind.
"I have been a patient at Boutique Eye Care for the last 5 years and am continually thankful that I found Dr. Farmer and Dr. Abuharb. "
Both doctors spend a great deal of time with your exam to ensure that your eyes receive the correct prescription for contacts or glasses. Free contact trials are offered and, if not exactly right for you, a follow up visit at no charge is provided complete with other possible contact brands and trials. If other medical care is needed such as cataract surgery, Dr. Farmer will refer you to another excellent specialist. When I needed cataract surgery this year, she referred me to the surgeon who performed her own surgery. My surgery has provided me with new eyes; can drive without contacts or glasses for the first time in years. You can count on both Dr. Farmer and Dr. Abuharb to really care for you.
In her spare time Dr. Farmer enjoys spending time with her husband, her two teenage daughters, playing with her dogs, and cooking a good meal!
Dr. Farmer graduated with honors from The University of Texas Health Science Center with a degree in Cytotechnology. She subsequently worked at Memorial Herman Hospital in the department of pathology as a cytotechnologist. She then went on to graduate from The University of Houston College of Optometry (UHCO) with honors. After graduation she furthered her education with the Low Vision Rehabilitation Residency at UHCO.

Hello! My name is Alexa and I’ve been part of the team at Boutique Eye Care since 2012. I love taking care of our patients and helping to make their appointments go as smoothly as possible. When not in the office you can find me hanging out with my husband, dog and cat, reading a good book, and planning my next adventure. Can’t wait to see you for your eye exam soon!
Hi I’m Mariah. I’ve been with the office since 2018. I love what I do and who I work with. I particularly enjoy teaching how to put in contacts. It’s also nice that I get to bring my dog, Beans. She can’t wait to meet you, and ask for a snack.
