Dr. Lauren Nelson joined Spring Klein Vision Center in the summer of 2012 after practicing for a year in her hometown of Beaumont, TX. She is a 2011 graduate of the University of Houston College of Optometry where she was top of her class. Prior to optometry school, Dr. Nelson earned her Bachelor of Science degree in biochemistry Summa Cum Laude from Texas A&M University.
Dr. Nelson enjoys seeing patients of all ages but takes a special interest in helping children see better since she started wearing glasses at a young age. She enjoys the enthusiasm they bring to their visits as well as the challenge they present when they are not always willing to cooperate. Most of all, Dr. Nelson loves to see the confidence that comes with a new pair of glasses and being able to see the world again.
Outside of work, Dr. Nelson loves spending time with her husband Andrew and their two wonderful boys A.J. and Kyle. She has learned to embrace muddy clothes, the seriousness of youth sports, and talking about bodily functions. When she’s not busy being a boy mom, Dr. Nelson is an avid crafter. She has probably tried just about every craft possible with more success at some than others. She is currently into vinyl cutting, sewing, and embroidery but has been known to scrapbook or woodwork a time or two. You won’t find her crafting during the fall, though, because she has to dedicate her time to watching her Aggies on the football field.
