Karen Chow, OD

Arizona has been home off and on for Dr. Chow since 1997. She was born in Las Vegas, NV and lived there until she moved to Tucson to go to the University of Arizona. She then moved to Oregon to attend Pacific University College of Optometry. After she graduated, she moved back to Arizona to practice. She joined Desert Eye in 2009.

Contact lens fitting, evaluation, and management is Dr. Chow’s specialty. She enjoys helping patients who have had difficulty finding a comfortable, clear contact lens option. “Be prepared to try some new things,” Dr. Chow warns. She reads, attends educational seminars, and meets with sales representatives from various contact lens manufacturers to keep us up to date on the latest contact lens advancements. Her attention to detail is amazing.

Dr. Chow loves to stay busy. When she isn’t working, she loves to travel and explore all of Arizona’s gems. She, her Husband, and her Son love to spend their vacation time in Sedona. She also likes to shop for clothing and accessories.
