Meet Dr. Tessa Lau
Tessa Lau, O.D., originally from St. Louis, MO, attended the University of Missouri-Columbia where she graduated Summa Cum Laude with a dual bachelor's in health sciences and biology. She then went on to attend Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, TN where she not only graduated Summa Cum Laude but also received an outstanding leadership award for her hard work and dedication to scope expansion in optometry. She served as SCO’s Student Government President and sat on the Board of Trustees as the student representative.
She obtained specialty training in ocular disease at the Great Lakes Naval Station, treating recruits, active duty seamen, and veterans. She also has extensive training in specialty contacts including sclerals, GPs, and hybrids from a private practice in Beverly Hills, CA.
Since moving to Colorado Dr. Lau is an active member of the Denver Optometric Association and the Ocular Wellness and Nutrition Society. She focuses on treating each patient holistically, integrating systemic health, diet changes, and supplementation into her routine exams. She loves to see patients of all ages and welcomes families to come in together for their yearly eye exams! Now that Colorado is one of the nation's leading states for optometry innovation, she looks forward to practicing full-scope medical optometry.
