Welcome to our Copperas Cove eye clinic – where we value your vision! Our experienced eye doctor, Dr. Micheline Young, is passionate about helping you enjoy clear and healthy vision. Every appointment is personalized to meet your individual needs, and we look forward to developing an open and friendly relationship with each patient.
Total Eye Care
Visit our eye clinic for everything related to vision, including eye exams for children and adults, treatment for ocular disease, emergency eye care, and to purchase new eyeglasses and contact lenses. With precise skill, Dr. Young uses cutting-edge equipment to perform detailed eye exams and recommend the most effective therapies.
We will inspect thoroughly for eye disease, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy, as well as evaluate conditions such as dry eye. Depending upon your needs, our eye doctor may use OCT scans, pachymetry, visual field analysis, and digital imagery to monitor and manage your vision condition. We bring over 20 years of professional experience to our Copperas Cove optometry practice – and we cannot wait to see all of our new and returning patients.
Meet Your Copperas Cove Eye Doctor
Dr. Micheline D. Young, OD, PA, has been improving the way Central Texans “see things” for over 18 years. After graduating as a New York high school Regents Scholar, Dr. Young attended the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, where she received a Bachelors of Science in Zoology. While in Amherst, Dr. Young became involved in visual neurobiology research and had the honor of working under the world-renowned visual neurobiologist, Prof. Katherine V. Fite, PhD, publishing results in the journal, Brain, Behavior, and Evolution.
Pursuing more clinical interests in vision, she came to Texas to attend the University of Houston College of Optometry, where she received her Doctorate of Optometry. While there, she continued her research and clinical studies in projects on auditory biofeedback of congenital nystagmus patients, auto kinesis and threshold movement detection, and a retrospective case study of radial keratotomy patients. During her tenure at the College of Optometry, Dr. Young was awarded several research fellowships, published in Optometry News, and was awarded the Harold Kohn Memorial Optometric Foundation Award.
Now, after marrying a native Texan, Dr. Young calls Texas home. She came to Cove Eyecare (formerly Cove Optical), where she continues to provide the area with the professionalism and excellence that has become her trademark. In Dr. Young’s words, “My fascination with our sense of sight has motivated me to pursue a career in vision since childhood. I consider myself privileged because there is no greater reward than helping my patients maximize their vision and maintain the health of their eyes.”
When away from the office, Dr. Young enjoys hiking and kayaking on her rural ranch, training in competitive dog sports, SCUBA and waterskiing.
