Dee E. Tekell, O.D. is currently licensed as a Therapeutic Optometrist and is certified as an Optometric Glaucoma Specialist. Dr. Tekell is a native, small-town Texan and graduated from Texas A&M University in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology. She received her Doctorate in Optometry with honors from the University Of Houston College Of Optometry in May 2012. She currently maintains active memberships in the Texas Optometric Association, the American Optometric Association, and the Central Texas Optometric Society. Dr. Tekell completed internships in pediatrics, specialty contact lenses, and ocular disease, with a heavy emphasis on glaucoma management. She is particularly interested in the fitting of scleral or hybrid specialty contact lenses for patients with conditions such as dry eye syndrome and keratoconus. Dr. Tekell is also certified to fit orthokeratology lenses, which are corneal reshaping devices that have proven effective in managing myopia progression. When not at work, Dr. Tekell enjoys spending time outdoors, hiking with her goldendoodle puppy, listening to live music, trying new breweries, and playing Mario Kart.
