Dr. Ellen Fandry is a Therapeutic Optometrist and a certified Glaucoma Specialist. She graduated with her Doctorate of Optometry from The University of Houston College of Optometry as a member of the prestigious honor society Beta Sigma Kappa. Before opening Seabrook Eye Center, she practiced in North Houston for several years. She is a Clear Lake High School graduate and is excited about this opportunity to provide eye care to her hometown community!
Dr. Fandry is trained to perform both routine and medical eye examinations and can diagnose and
treat conditions like dry eyes, contact lens-related complications, eye infection (commonly known as pink eye), glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, eye injuries, allergies, binocular vision disorders (misalignment of the eyes), and many others. She also works with nearby eye surgeons and assists them in caring for patients after cataract and LASIK surgeries.
Before graduating from optometry school, Dr. Fandry did a rotation at Cedar Springs Clinic in Dallas, Texas, where she was trained extensively in managing and treating ocular disease. In addition, she learned primary care optometry at an extensive private practice in Austin, Texas. At both locations, as well as in private practice, she gained experience with more difficult specialty contact lens fittings like scleral lenses (for patients with irregular corneas) and ortho-k (special hard lenses that reshape your cornea while you sleep, allowing you to see without correction during the day). She also does more routine fittings for patients with astigmatism and monovision and multifocal lens fittings for patients over 40 who are losing their near-focusing ability.
For undergraduate studies, she graduated with honors from Lindenwood University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry. She played volleyball for Clear Lake High School and later at Lindenwood, where she was an All-American student-athlete. In her spare time, Dr. Fandry still enjoys playing sports like tennis and slow-pitch softball, trying new restaurants and cuisines, camping, and hiking with her husband.
