In practice since 1988, his primary clinical interests include oculoplastics, reconstructive surgery, refractive surgery, and cataract surgery.

Houston Eye Associates covers all areas of ophthalmological and optometric care, with treatment available in all specialties and for all ages.

These areas of specialization include cornea, retina, glaucoma, pediatrics, refractive/LASIK, oculoplastics, uveitis, and neuro-ophthalmology. 

Pertaining to his educational background, Dr. Urso graduated from Villanova University with a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science, where he was on the Dean’s Distinguished Honor Roll. He went on to study medicine at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, where he was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society.

In 1993, Dr. Urso was appointed Ophthalmologist and Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, where he served until April 2005.

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract and corneal surgery.
