Hi, my name is Dr. Christie Chan. I have been an optometrist for over 15 years and would like to tell you a little bit about myself. I feel very fortunate to work at a place where I am helping members every day in caring for their eyes.
I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. I graduated from Boston University with bachelor’s degrees in human physiology and in psychology. I went on to obtain my doctorate in optometry at the State University of New York College of Optometry in New York City. After graduating, I completed an ocular disease/primary care optometry residency at the VA Medical Center in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. I am also a fellow of the American Academy of Optometry. I moved to wonderful, sunny Southern California in 2003 with my husband, who is also an optometrist.
In my practice, I examine patients of all ages for eyeglasses/contact lenses and eye health. I enjoy talking with members about their visual needs and how I can help them see better. I am certified to treat glaucoma, and I provide orthoptics or vision therapy to adults and children with amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (eye turn), and/or eye movement disorders that may be affecting their daily activities in everyday life. I am also grateful to be able to work closely with ophthalmologists to provide the best overall care for members’ eyes.
In my free time, you can find me outside going for a jog or walking and playing with my 3 dogs. I also enjoy traveling, reading, and scrapbooking.
