Doctors & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctors and staff who make Travis Street Optical the leading provider of vision care products and services in Sherman.
Dr. Christopher Morgan
A native of Oklahoma, Dr. Morgan moved to the Sherman area in 1986 (one of his first summer jobs was working as an optician in Royal Optical). He went on to earn his Bachelor of Science degree from McMurry University and finished his professional education at the University of Houston College of Optometry. There he received letters of excellence in clinical achievement while completing externships at Barber’s Point NAS Hospital and Browning IHS Hospital serving the local Blackfeet Native American tribe .
After receiving his Doctorate of Optometry degree in 1995, Dr. Morgan did a post-graduate residency at Crownpoint USPHS Hospital in Crownpoint, New Mexico serving the Navaho Nation in a multi-disciplinary health care setting.
Dr. Morgan has been practicing optometry in the Sherman area since 1998. He is a therapeutic optometrist as well as an optometric glaucoma specialist . He is also a diplomate of the American Board of Optometry and recipient of the VSP certificate of excellence.
Dr. Morgan grew up wanting to be an optometrist after seeing first-hand the dramatic effect that clear vision can have on a person’s quality of life (or in other words, he was amazed when his childhood eye doctor showed him that the tree across the street had individual leaves on it).
Travis Street Optical is a modern practice, utilizing the newer diagnostic instruments available in todays’ digital environment but it’s the individual attention to detail that sets their practice apart from the rest. It’s an old-fashioned approach in an age that values quantity over quality.
Dr. Brett Ringger
Dr. Ringger earned his medical degree from Northeastern State University College of Optometry. He received his undergraduate degree from Tulsa University in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Dr. Ringger has served the eyecare needs of Texoma for nearly twenty years. Ten years ago, he and Dr. Morgan formed Travis Street Optical to better care for the complete vision and eye health of their patients.
Dr. Ringger is Chief of Optometry for the 136th Medical Group (MDG), Joint Reserve Base, Fort Worth, where he specializes in vision care for aviation. He has achieved Diplomacy in the Cornea and Contact Lens Section of American Academy of Optometry.
With a passion for maximizing vision, Dr. Ringger performs exams for the underserved at no cost for the Sherman Evening Lions Club and has participated in humanitarian missions to India, Nicaragua, Easter Island, New York, and Alaska.
