Dr. Leigha M. Nielsen graduated with honors from the University of Houston College of Optometry. She also holds degrees in Biology and Business Management. During the course of her studies, she participated in research focusing on keratoconus, a degenerative eye disease. She presented her research at the Associates for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) and the American Academy of Optometry (AAO). As an active member of the Schertz community, Dr. Nielsen volunteers at the local Lion’s Club, YMCA health fairs, and is a member of the Schertz Chamber of Commerce. Professional memberships include the Texas Optometric Association, the American Optometric Association, and the Bexar County Optometric District Socity. Dr. Nielsen practices full-scope Optometry and works with patients of all ages, specializing in standard and specialty contact lens fittings, minor ocular surgeries, diagnosis and treatment of amblyopia, anterior segment pathologies, cataracts, glaucoma, and retinal pathologies. She also handles a great deal of refractive corrective surgery co-management and cataract surgery co-management.
Dr. Nielsen always takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, go over your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
