Why choose Vista Vision as your premier eyecare provider?
Vista Vision Premier Family Eyecare was opened by Dr. Toni Racoma to offer caring personalized eye care and unique high-quality designer glasses all in one setting. Dr. Racoma moved to San Antonio in 2012 and soon realized that every eye doctor office seemed a repeat of the next. The choices in eyeglasses, sunglasses, and how eye exams and customer service were performed seemed monotonous. Dr. Racoma was motivated to offer her elite training and skills to the people of San Antonio and introduce fresh, exciting eyewear to the market.
So in 2017 Dr. Racoma took a bold step forward to open San Antonio’s premier eye care office, Vista Vision. Call us to schedule your exam or stop by to see for yourself that this is not your typical eye care office … This is Vista Vision Premier Family Eyecare, where you will find exceptional eyecare and fabulous eyewear!

CUSTOM PRESCRIPTION LENSES
Most patients accept "aging" vision and decreased field of view through their progressive lenses as "part of life."

Using personalized digital measurements on each patient allows the most accurate lens design possible - resulting in the best quality of vision, edge to edge clarity, and most natural posture available in ANY progressive lens out there! When just having "20/20" vision isn't good enough, let the Vista Vision team design your next pair of custom digital lenses - trust us, you won't regret it!

Dr. Toni Racoma
Dr. Toni Racoma is a Therapeutic Optometrist and Optometric Glaucoma Specialist who enjoys examining and caring for patients of all ages. She is especially passionate about prevention, early detection, and timely and effective treatment of ocular diseases, including dry eye disease, diabetes, glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Dr. Racoma believes that each patient is a unique individual, and she loves taking time to get to know each of her patients, developing personalized treatment plans for each encounter. Patients truly feel cared for as if they were part of her family!
Dr. Racoma is also a firm believer in ensuring her patients have the best vision possible every day. She and her highly trained optician combine the newest lens technologies with the finest eyewear made by Optical Designers, not just designer labels. She takes pride in bringing a whole new world of eyewear and sunwear to our beautiful city.
Years of training prepared Dr. Racoma to open her dream practice. Dr. Racoma studied Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins University where she graduated at the top of her class in 2003. She attended the Nation's leading optometry school, the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, where she graduated as Valedictorian in 2007. She completed a residency at The Eye Institute in Philadelphia, PA in 2008.
Prior to moving to Texas Dr. Racoma was an associate in a northern Virginia optometry practice. There she especially enjoyed caring for patients in a private setting and thus her dream of practice ownership was born.
Dr. Racoma moved to San Antonio in 2012 to teach Optometry to future generations of eye doctors at the University of the Incarnate Word Rosenberg School of Optometry. As an Assistant Professor at UIW, Dr. Racoma was the Lead Instructor of Ocular Anatomy and Lead Instructor of Ophthalmic Optics. She also taught in the Advanced Optometry and Clinical Optometry Laboratories. As the faculty representative for the RSO chapter of the Student Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (SVOSH), Dr. Racoma participated and oversaw students in vision and health screenings throughout the city.
Dr. Racoma is a member of the Bexar County District Optometric Society, the Texas Optometric Association, and the American Optometric Association. She resides in San Antonio with her husband and two sons, and they enjoy spending time outdoors and exploring state parks together. Dr. Racoma and her family belong to Fellowship Bible Church, and she is an active member of the South Texas La Leche League.
Amy graduated from the University of the Incarnate Word with a degree in Biological Sciences and is currently working on her Master’s degree in Public Health. Her passion is in preventive health and improving the quality of health care. Her interest in Optometry came from her own experiences as a patient with high myopia, a Lasik patient, and a glaucoma suspect. As Amy truly understands the eye care experience from the patient’s perspective, she is determined to provide the best experience possible at our office as the patient care coordinator and ophthalmic technician.
In her free time Amy fosters animals from local animal shelters, is preparing for her MCAT, studying for her Master’s classes, and has her face in fantasy and science-fiction novels. We’re blessed to have Amy as part of the Vista Vision Family!
Pooja will be rejoining us this summer after having completed her first year in optometry school at the University of the Incarnate Word Rosenberg School of Optometry. Pooja is passionate about frame-styling and finding that perfect pair (or two!) that exists for every patient. With her style and our fun collection the possibilities are endless!
Pooja became interested in the field of Optometry from an early age as she watched her grandparents lose vision from glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. She became passionate about the importance of early diagnosis and intervention of these and other ocular diseases, and she encourages our patients to improve their ocular and overall health. Pooja has been in San Antonio for some time now as she graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a Minor in Business Administration. In her free time Pooja enjoys exploring San Antonio trails, trying the local taco trucks, and of course – FIESTA!

our Eyecare technology
Dr. Racoma knows that state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment is essential in caring for her patients, so she invests in the latest technology at Vista Vision.
electronic health records (ehr)
Vista Vision uses one of the latest electronic health record systems to transform the way your care is delivered. Our secure EHR ensures that your health information is available whenever and wherever it is needed. Plus, with our secure Patient Portal you can access your eye care records, including your most recent prescriptions, from the comfort of your home.
“Which is better 1 or 2? 3 or 4?” Anyone who has been to the eye doctor knows the routine. But at Vista Vision Dr. Racoma uses the latest refraction technology to digitally refract her patients. Using an automated phoropter, Dr. Racoma provides greater accuracy for your prescription. With the touch of a button she will allow you to compare the new refraction directly to your previous glasses. Ultimately the digital phoropter makes the process of “which is better?” less stressful on you.
Dr. Racoma can check the pressure in your eye without drops or the puff of air. That’s right, NO PUFF!
optical coherence tomography (oct)
This advanced device allows Dr. Racoma to measure each cellular layer in the major structures inside of your eye, including the retina and optic nerve head. These cross section scans help us detect and monitor diseases in ways not possible with traditional eye exams.
digital retinal photography
Dr. Racoma can take a wide angle picture of your retina (the back of your eye), which allows us to detect and follow diseases such as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, and ocular melanoma. We can directly compare images from year to year.
At Vista Vision we can accurately and efficiently measure your central and peripheral (“side”) vision. This is an important test for many eye conditions, most notably glaucoma, by detecting lost “side vision” before it is even recognizable by patients.
Once word got out that Dr. Racoma was opening Vista Vision in San Antonio, eyeglass and sunglass companies from around the world were calling for the opportunity to be part of this exciting new practice! Dr. Racoma was able to say “yes” to some of the finest eyewear companies anywhere and they will be showcasing their latest designs at Vista Vision. Take a look at some of the wonderful eyewear we will be featuring and stop in today to try them on for yourself. We proudly carry independent eyewear designers such as Robert Marc, Bevel, J.F. Rey, Blake Kuwahara, Res/Rei, Feb31st, OVVO, and l.a.Eyeworks!
We focus in hard to fit prescriptions too, marrying the right eyewear to the right lens just for you. Worried about thick lenses? Dr. Racoma and her optician will steer you in the right direction to ensure a beautiful final pair of eyeglasses.

Renowned eyewear designer Robert Marc opened his first shop 35 years ago in New York City with the philosophy that “eyewear should enhance the vision of one’s self”. By combining classic and modern elements, Robert Marc creates timeless eyewear designs. Robert Marc has revived the art of the handcrafted frame and subtly brands his eyewear with the trademarked Robert Marc hinge that is inspired by historical design and construction. This signature hinge adds distinction and luxury to each frame and unifies the collection.
The Robert Marc Collection is crafted with high-quality materials such as zyl (Italian acetate) and titanium. He is known for layering contrasting and complementary colors and patterns to create depth and glamour in each frame. While each frame is unique, Robert Marc’s seasonal collections are themed, reflecting Robert’s artistic consciousness and imagination.
Jean-François Rey is one of the greatest French designers of top end eyeglass frames; his design signature still makes all the difference. When the "Made in France" logo is put on his designs it’s not only to prove where they are made, it’s also, and above all, to explain the culture of the J.F.REY brand and the skill and know-how of the design teams involved.
For his creative team, all environmental elements are a source of inspiration. The story of each model is the subtle choice of colours and combinations of materials, to express the insolence, which is part of each model in the collection.
Independent eyewear for independent people. Bevel’s eyewear brings out the natural beauty of the human face. Bevel’s form, function and quality depend on a minimalist philosophy expressed through innovation and striking color combinations. Bevel’s individualist customers appreciate enduring balance and supreme comfort in an evolving variety of sophisticated yet totally wearable frames.
Bevel is committed to maintaining a classic but minimalist esthetic, using truly high-quality materials with Japanese production, and constantly seeking innovation so glasses look, fit, and perform better. TRANSLATION: Bevel owners love wearing Bevel.
OVVO Optics has been present in the U.S. since March 2011. Its history, however, goes back to Europe of the Cold War era. That’s when a group of scientists, who were working on developing a material for spacecraft and military use, fused surgical steel and titanium, achieving an exceptionally light, durable and flexible material that is also hypoallergenic. Inspired by its remarkable qualities, in 1980 the engineers of the company started using this unique composite to make frames for glasses. They are handmade and manufactured with outstanding precision, mastered by over 30 years of experience. Entirely produced in Germany and Poland, OVVO frames bring exquisite European style and unmatched quality.
Weighing barely 0.6 ounces OVVO frames offer unparalleled comfort and unfailing durability. Tests show that stretched flat frames can hold up to 90 pounds without breaking or malfunctioning. Virtually indestructible and highly flexible is also OVVO Optics-patented screw-free hinge that can withstand more than 300,000 rotations (an equivalent of 205 years of usage) and reveal no changes in structure or appearance.
FEB31st speaks to all those who look for the essence of things, who are able to see reality with an intense and personal look, who wish to look at the beauty of the things around them. A philosophy that draws its strength and inspiration from its roots, its past, its respect for the people and the resources of our planet to look at a future even closer to their dreams and values. For this reason, FEB31st has selected wood, a material that is precious and symbolic, sensual and rich in history, elegant and natural, ancient and modern, to be the interpreter of its utopia, through innovative glasses in which color is one of the main features, which expresses a contemporary sensitiveness that seeks uniqueness in sobriety and marries past and future, in a synthesis of lightness, simplicity and sustainability.
Blake Kuwahara is recognized as one of the preeminent designers in eyewear today. Kuwahara, who also has a doctorate of optometry degree from UC Berkeley, gained international acclaim for his groundbreaking use of engineering and production techniques to reinvent the way eyewear design is approached today.
Blake Kuwahara eyeglasses are artful but wearable. By using laborious production techniques and a lot of handwork, an inner silhouette is encased in an unexpectedly fresh outer shape. This seamless fusion of two frames and the juxtaposition of contrasting form and color create a design tension that is thoroughly modern yet comfortably familiar. “A paradox. Like me.” – Dr. Blake Kuwahara
RES/REI has been creating hand-assembled eyewear since 2011. A distinctive design coupled with an excellent handmade production have helped to make RES/REI an Italian brand recognized for quality and innovation. RES/REI aims to give credit to the Italian craftsmanship - RES/REI is completely made in Italy, from the first idea to the final product. We boast that RES/REI is “Handmade in Italy with love”.
l.a.Eyeworks began on September 9, 1979 when two opticians, Barbara McReynolds and Gai Gherardi, opened a single storefront on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, California. The original whim for this adventure? To challenge the prevailing norms of eyewear with proposals for a new, provocative revelation of the face. More than three decades and hundreds of frame designs later, l.a.Eyeworks remains a privately owned house of optical imagination, encompassing two namesake retail stores in Los Angeles and a wholesale company that channels its influential designs to a global network of independent retailers.
