Dr. Ashley Chennankara

Certified Therapeutic Optometrist, Optometric Glaucoma Specialist

Medical Eye Care


I have sought out opportunities to practice optometry in medical settings such as Baylor Scott & White Hospital in Temple, Texas where I spent several years providing care for residents of the Central Texas area.

Since 2013 Dr. Chennankara has coordinated patient care with central Texas family practice physicians and urgent care clinics seeing patients for ocular emergencies as well as routine care for patients with complex health and eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetes.

Educating Patients

“My greatest joy as an optometrist is helping my patients understand the health of their eyes, which is vital to their overall well-being.”
