wARDA rIAZ, O.D.
Optometric Glaucoma Specialist
Being born and raised in San Antonio, Dr. Warda Riaz has always known that San Antonio would be her forever home. A proud native Texan, Dr. Riaz attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Biology. She then furthered her education at the University of the Incarnate Word- Rosenberg School of Optometry, located here in the Alamo city. During the last year of her 4 year optometric training, she completed externships at Fort Sam Houston and at a local private practice. Although each site cared for different subsets of patients, both modalities allowed Dr. Riaz to focus on treating dry eyes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. She also enjoys fitting contact lenses and participating in the co-management of LASIK, cataracts, and other various surgical procedures.
Dr. Riaz is certified by the National Board of Examiners of Optometry and is licensed to practice in the great state of Texas, by the Texas Optometry Board. Her passion for treating eye related diseases and preserving her patients’ vision led her to earn the Therapeutic Optometric license as well as the Optometric Glaucoma Specialist designation.
