About Steven Chander, O.D.

Dr. Steven ChanderI became fascinated with vision as a young child. My sister needed eyeglasses at a very young age. Her first pair of glasses made such a wonderful impact on her life, I knew that I wanted to help others the way my sister was helped with our most precious gift...our eye health and vision. I concentrated on spending many years in advanced training, including several externships in specialized areas of medical and visual eye health. Even now, I spend over the required amount of time learning new advancements in our profession. It is a passion of mine.

When I started practicing in 1995, my goal was to provide Total Eye Health Care with effective diagnosis and treatment of eye disease, using only the best in technology and optical products like eyeglass lenses and contact lenses. Today, I'm proud to say that I've not only upheld these standards, but have created the model clinic from which our profession can learn. In addition, you'll feel confident in our constant education program for our staff, and my board certification.

Finally I believe in very personalized one-on-one attention and care, all of our patients receive unhurried attention every step of the way. That's I will thoroughly explain your condition and treatment options in very simple easy to understand language. Your findings are always followed up with a detailed report in writing reminding you of your visit, the options and recommendations for you to keep for your medical eye health records.

I will always take the time to answer questions and address concerns 24 hours, 7 days a week.

"As clinical director, I oversee our team’s engagement in education.  We are constantly learning new efficiencies in serving our patients, developing new systems and bringing on new eyewear and eyecare technologies.  I also help our team work best together in an environment that creates excitement and motivation to become better well rounded eye care professionals.  My hope is to have all my team take home values learned here, serving our patients, to better improve their personal lives at home and with their families as well.  I also see our pediatric, adult and senior patients serving to ensure a healthy long life of best eyesight!"
