Rachel Chen, OD

Dr. Chen is a licensed Therapeutic Optometrist and Optometric Glaucoma Specialist.

She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Microbiology from The University of Texas at Austin and her Doctorate of Optometry from The University of Houston College of Optometry in 2011.

Personal Interests:
Dr. Chen enjoys getting to know her patients and providing them with personalized eye care. She understands that different occupations and hobbies require very different vision needs, and one size cannot possibly fit all in the eye care world. Therefore spending a little extra time to get to know a patient can make a world of difference in improving the patient’s quality of life after the exam. She also takes a special interest in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic ocular conditions such as double vision, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. In her free time, Dr. Chen enjoys reading, traveling, and attending concerts. On most weekends, you can find her out and about with her family, friends, and her two hyperactive Pomeranians.

Time in Private Practice:
Dr. Chen started working with Dr. Brending and the team at Clear Lake Eye Center when she was a first year optometry school student. She worked as Dr. Brending’s assistant throughout school and upon graduation she joined the practice as a part-time associate optometrist. In 2013, Dr. Brending and Dr. Chen join forces in full-time partnership.

Specialties Affiliations:
In optometry school, she served as a teaching assistant and was a member of the Beta Sigma Kappa International Optometric Honor Society. She is also a member of the Texas Optometric Association and the American Optometric Association.
