Experienced personable doctors that care.

Dr. Katie Pham O.D.

Therapeutic Optometrist & Optometric Glaucoma Specialist

Dr. Pham attended Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, majoring in engineering and biochemistry during her undergraduate studies. In 1999, she graduated from the University of Houston College of Optometry, Houston, Texas with her doctorate degree in optometry. Post graduation, she began her career working with a renowned Houston based refractive surgeon successfully managing thousands of LASIK and PRK patients. In addition, Dr. Pham worked for the National Board of Examiners in Optometry (NBEO) as a clinical examiner. In 2002, Dr. Pham and her husband, Dr. Ziskrout, opened their private optometry practice in Cypress, Texas. They ended up calling it: Eye Trends-Barker Cypress.

Dr. Pham co-manages several modalities of refractive surgery (LASIK, PRK, and ICL), cataract surgery, and lens replacement procedures (refractive lensectomy). She is highly trained and experienced to diagnose, treat, and manage eye infections & injuries, and dry & allergic suffering eyes.

She is certified, based upon strict FDA requirements, to perform Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT). This lens therapy method helps slow down the myopic (nearsightedness) shift in young patients. Her consistent compassion to, and off-the-wall humor, with her patients is well received and ever so appreciated by all. Outside of the office, Dr. Pham and her husband are very proud parents of three super kids, and alongside them, she volunteers in many local charities such as the Alpha Charity League and the National Charity League.

Born in Los Angeles, California, Dr. Ziskrout attended California State University, Los Angeles, majoring in Biological Sciences.  He earned numerous academic awards including the Golden Key National Honor Society. Transferring to Pacific University, in Oregon, he graduated in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Vision Science. In 1997, Dr. Ziskrout earned his Doctorate in Optometry from Pacific University College of Optometry. At Pacific, he received several academic and clinical honors. While doing a clinical rotation at the San Diego Naval Hospital, the Naval Commander recognized Dr. Ziskrout’s contributions to the servicemen and servicewomen with a letter of commendation. In the area of pediatrics and binocular vision, his doctoral thesis research pioneered new areas into Attention Deficit Disorder and its potential relationship with eye movements and understanding their complex relationships. As a result, Dr. Ziskrout was invited and presented his research at the American Academy of Optometry, Orlando, Florida.

Post-graduate, Dr. Ziskrout accepted an adjunct clinical faculty position from the University of Houston College of Optometry (UHCO). Prior to that, he served as Chief Resident during his Family Practice Residency at UHCO, which is when he met his future wife and business partner, Dr. Katie Pham.  Dr. Ziskrout has been the focus of a multi–part series on Channel 8, Houston’s Public Television Medical Monday program.  For many years he served as a distinguished member on the National Board of Examiners in Optometry (NBEO) as a Senior Supervising Clinical Examiner. In support of optometry, he has given testimony at the State Capitol in Austin, Texas to The House of Representatives regarding optometric laws. As a result, the bill he lobbied for passed, and was signed into law by the governor.

Dr. Ziskrout is recognized as an expert in fitting unique eyes that require complex contact lens designs to improve their challenged vision (such as keratoconus, corneal transplants, RK surgery, corneal trauma, etc.). He is certified as a Paragon CRT specialist, able to reshape corneas via special-designed rigid gas permeable lenses that allow the patient to see throughout the day without wearing glasses or contact lenses.

He enjoys treating and managing eye infections & injuries, dry eyes & allergy eyes, and since 1998 has co-managed LASIK, cataract, and glaucoma surgeries. One of his career highlights includes 7+ years working hand in hand with a select few of Houston's premier ophthalmologists.

    My family has been coming to this location for 3 years because of Dr. Ziskrout. He is extremely personable and intelligent. His exams are like talking with an old friend. And if you are not a fan of eye exams, this is the office to come to because they make you feel at ease the entire time. Carlos is also very good at his job. Finding you the best glasses and getting all of the insurance information together so you know your budget. I love that this office texts appointment reminders and when glasses are ready for pick up. They are a well run office and it shows. Thank you Eye Trends Barker Cypress!

    As always, Doctor Huy “Tommy” Nguyen hit another home run in my book. Dr. Nguyen really cares about me as a patient and and I’m comfortable with his diagnosis. The entire staff are just wonderful people. They’re friendly, courteous, intellectual and sincerely genuine. From start to finish, it’s a pleasure having to visit Dr. Nguyen’s office. Don’t take my word folks! The next time you need to see an eye doctor; schedule an appointment with Dr. Huy “Tommy” Nguyen and you’ll understand what I mean.

    I’ve had a lot of trouble over past years with my eyes (went to neuro-opthamologist for 30 years) & moved here a few years ago. After disaster with a neuro-opthamologist here, I found Dr Z who is fantastic! He has enabled me to see better than I have in 30 years without pain! He & optometrist Julie showed tremendous, sensitivity, understanding & patience for which I am most grateful. I now have new light-weight style frames & lenses that are very comfortable & flattering to my small face... & I can see!!

    I have been very happy with the people who work at Eye Trends Barker Cypress for many years now. Dr. Pham is so friendly and fun. It is obvious, to me, that she loves what she does, which makes for a great doctor/patient relationship. Carlos was very attentive, knowledgeable, helpful, and patient with me as I took time to find a new pair of glasses. I never felt rushed and he was great at helping me to make a decision that I know that I will be happy with. I highly recommend Eye Trends in Cypress. If you are in need of a place for optic care, this is the place to go!
