Dr. Nancy AmirLow Vision Employees

Dr. Nancy Amir was born in Cairo, Egypt and grew up in Houston, Texas later moving to Amarillo and graduating from Amarillo High School.  Dr. Amir graduated in 1992 from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Arts in Biology and in 1996 from the University of Houston with a degree in Optometry. While studying there, she completed her residency in low vision under Dr. Randall Jose, an internationally recognized low vision specialist, and completed a Low Vision manual "The A-B-See's of Low Vision. After finishing her residency in 1997, she settled in San Antonio, Texas where she now resides with her husband, Dr. Farshid Amir.  Dr. Nancy Amir joined the founder of San Antonio Low Vision Clinic, Dr. Kathleen Fraser-Freeman, as an associate and assumed ownership in 2000 after Dr. Fraser-Freeman moved to Pittsburgh.

To help her patients, Dr. Amir is always up to date with the latest technology being developed in low vision. This includes everything from a small pocket magnifier to electronic magnifiers and telescope glasses. Low Vision is something very close to her heart, due to members of her own family who suffer from low vision. She has a very sincere understanding for patients who suffer from vision loss, because she knows how it can impact ones life. She always tries her hardest to find some way of helping each of her patients. The greatest reward is when a patient tells her "I never thought I would be able to read again".
