Nelson Juarez, OD, not only practices family eye care in Texas City, but also makes his home in the community with his wife, Rosie, who serves as his office manager and their children.
A native of Galveston, Dr. Juarez graduated from Galveston Ball High School. He studied at the University of Houston where he earned a degree in biology in 1999 and went on to graduate from the University of Houston College of Optometry with a Doctor of Optometry degree in 2003. His first career move was with the TSO Texas City. After three years, he purchased the practice and became the new owner in June, 2006.
Dr, Juarez says, 'I enjoy building relationships with my patients in Texas City which is like a small town where you see patients in the grocery store and get to know their families. It's great seeing their children grow up along with mine and that's a big reason why I think it's important to live in the community where you practice.'
Dr. Juarez is a therapeutic optometrist who can diagnose and treat many medical eye care conditions such as: Glaucoma, Cataracts, Diabetic Retinopathy, Amblyopia(lazy eye/crossed eye), Macular Degeneration, LASIK, Myopia(nearsighted), Hyperopia(Farsighted), and Presbyopia(Trouble focusing up close). He stresses the importance of an annual eye exam because many eye diseases are not detectable without a dilated eye exam.
Active in the community, Dr Juarez is a member of Rotary Club in Texas City. With a strong commitment to "Service Above Self" rotary members volunteer in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.
1999: Bachelor of Science in Biology with a minor in Spanish from the University of Houston 2003: Doctor of Optometry degree from University of Houston College of Optometry
