Tiffany Chen, OD FAAO
Dr. Tiffany Chen completed her studies at University of California San Diego with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2012, and her doctorate of optometry from Southern California College of Optometry in 2016. She then finished a rigorous optometric residency in Cornea and Contact Lenses from University of Houston College of Optometry in 2017, where she managed complex cases in post-surgical eyes, severely scarred corneas, aphakia, and other anterior segment abnormalities. Her clinical experience during residency included a rotation through Baylor College of Medicine, Soper Brothers and Associates, Eye Excellence of Houston, and Slade and Baker Vision Center in Houston, TX. These experiences have allowed Dr. Chen to be very comfortable with specialty contact lens fittings, including soft prosthetic lenses, as well as managing various corneal diseases. In addition to her experiences during residency, Dr. Chen has been trained in managing ocular diseases during her time at Indian Health Services in Lawton, OK, San Diego Naval Hospital, and at the Veteran’s Affair CBOC in Sierra Vista, AZ.
Dr. Chen earned her fellowship in the American Academy of Optometry (FAAO) in 2017. Optometrists who become Fellows of the Academy must complete a thorough candidacy process, led by a panel of optometrists and vision scientists who must approve both written work and the oral examination. Fellows strive for the highest professional standards. In 2020, Dr. Chen earned her fellowship in the Scleral Lens Society (FSLS). Optometrists who have proven themselves in the field of scleral lens fitting can apply for status as a Fellow of the Scleral Lens Society, entitling them to be listed on the SLS website as a scleral lens fitter, which is accessible to the public.
