Dr. Emery


Dr. Julia Emery has been helping people see better for 20 years. Her passion is to provide the most accurate prescriptions and the most exceptional eyewear possible. She founded Distinct Vision in Round Rock for that purpose. Her patients rave about her caring manner and willingness to take the extra time to understand each patient’s needs.

Dr. Emery knows that the time patients spend at her office may be the only minutes of the day in which they can relax.  “We take a routine exam and turn it into a relaxing, spa-like experience.” The result is an office that looks and feels more like a spa than a doctor’s clinic.

She grew up in central Kansas and attended Kansas State University for her undergraduate studies. She received her Doctor of Optometry degree with honors from New England College of Optometry in Boston in 1996. Since then she practiced in San Antonio and Phoenix before settling in Round Rock where she has been for over 15 years.

Dr. Emery enjoys traveling with her husband and loves to spoil her Labrador retrievers: Maggie and Belle.


Amy Maxwell

Clinic Coordinator

Amy says that being able to serve people at Distinct Vision is a wonderful privilege. As Clinic Coordinator, it is her goal that each person who walks through the door feels important and cared for. Over the last 5 years she has also been our Lead Eyewear Consultant. She researches the latest lens designs to find the perfect fit for complicated visual demands and has a gift for selecting the perfect frame. She has forged strong relationships with her patients in her 5 years on our team. It’s no wonder that she receives fan mail – one such note read: “Thank you for helping me find my style!”

Amy was born in Houston and grew up in Lousiana, but she now calls Austin home. She loves playing outside and caring for her garden. Her two pooches Pixie and Snicker-Doodle occupy a lot of her time, and she likes it that way. Singing is her favorite thing to do… In 2011, she released her first CD!

Roxanne Crespin

Patient Coordinator

Roxanne has worked in the eye care field for over 6 years, 3 of those here at Distinct Vision. She is our contact lens coordinator (AKA contact lens ninja) and lead eyecare technician. She collects data for Dr. Emery using specialized instruments to gather prescription information, take corneal maps and more. She then assembles all of the information and discusses any visual concerns that our patients may have. Roxanne also assists Dr. Emery for in-office patient procedures.

As contact lens coordinator she performs contact lens training sessions and communicates with patients after their exams to ensure that they have the best possible vision.

Her calm, professional manner puts our patients at ease and keeps us on course. She is an integral part of our eyecare team.
