Layne Ford, OD


Dr. Layne Ford, a Southeast Texas native, is excited to call this area her home once more!  She graduated with honors from Lamar University where she received a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Chemistry.  During her time there, she worked at TSO-Midcounty as an optometric technician and optical sales consultant.  After graduating, she decided to further her career in the optometric field.  She went to the University of Houston where she earned her Doctorate of Optometry in 2017.  Dr. Ford is a Therapeutic Optometrist and Optometric Glaucoma Specialist and is trained in the management of ocular conditions such as glaucoma, dry eye, and macular degeneration.  She is passionate about myopia management - slowing the progression of nearsightedness in children, along with improving vision in people with corneal abnormalities, such as keratoconus  or post-surgical eyes that require medically necessary contact lenses.  After starting her career at a private practice in League City, Texas, she is happy to be back in her hometown at TSO-Midcounty helping her patients look good, feel good and see good!

Dr. Ford enjoys cooking, traveling, being outdoors and spending time with her friends and family, especially her husband, Dave and their Siberian Husky, Layla.
