About Us

See Well, Look Better

Changing the Face of Optometry

In 2009, we founded Optique with the belief that a premier Optometry practice and Optical boutique provides exceptional service with the finest quality eyewear products in an environment that is friendly, experienced, attentive and maintains the distinctive local, Austin vibe.

Woman and locally owned, we are dedicated to giving every patient the personalized attention they deserve.  We use the most state of the art equipment to diagnose and treat your eye conditions, and we customize your eye glasses, sunglasses and contact lenses prescriptions to fit your individual lifestyle and vision needs.   

We select eyeglass and sunglass brands that are independent, handcrafted and stylish.  Our doctors also fit and prescribe the most innovative contact lens brands available in the market.

Experts with Vision

With over 20 years in the Austin engineering, optometry and optical industry, we take pride in delivering the ultimate eye care experience for all of your vision needs. 

We’ve carefully planned and selected every aspect of our practice to transform how your eyes are cared for.  We've optimized everything from the: first encounter at patient check-in, to the relaxing eye exam with our friendly Optometrists, to crafting an enjoyable shopping experience in our optical showroom.  

We also strive for the highest knowledge and education in our field, so all of our Opticians are certified or are working their way towards certification (American Board of Opticians, ABO).

Dedicated to Helping You See Your Best Life

As a small business, we love that we get to know our patients one on one.  Our goal is to make your eye care experience seamless and fun.  We want to see your entire family.

From our state of the art equipment with dilation free technology, our in-house lab that can make your prescription lenses in an hour in most cases and direct shipping of your contact lenses to your home or office, we are here for you.  

Sign up to receive more information about our upcoming parties and trunk shows. Our trunk shows are a great opportunity to see a particular brand of eye glasses and sunglasses in every style, color and size available to try-on in our stores. We send these out quarterly.

Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Courtney Rhodes, OD, Dr. Matthew Zemanovich (a.k.a. Dr. Z), OD and Dr. Kevan Whelan, OD can't wait to meet you! Our Austin eye doctors see patients six days a week, and you can schedule an appointment 24/7 with our online scheduler.

Dr. Rhodes is the founder of Optique, and she has a strong engineering and science background. She loves finding the perfect refraction for your glasses or contact lens prescription. She's also really into fashion, so she spends a lot of her time with our opticians finding the perfect frames and sunglasses for our stores.

Dr. Zemanovich ("Z") has fallen in love with our Austin vibe, and he enjoys spending time with each of our patients and providing the very best eye care. He's also interested in the academia/ research side of our industry, so he enjoys teaching our staff about new developments and all things Optometry.

Dr. Whelan joined our team in 2019. Being from the north, he loves our Austin weather and enjoys being outdoors. He completed a primary care residency after getting his Doctorate of Optometry degree, and he specializes in cornea and contact lens management. Easy going and highly proficient, Dr. Whelan is a great addition to our team.
