Dr. Christopher Schnelle

​​​​​​​Dr. Christopher Schnelle is a native of Sheboygan, Wisconsin, who received his undergraduate degree at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, and his Doctor of Optometry degree from the Illinois College of Optometry in Chicago. Dr. Schnelle also completed a community health residency in Boston through the New England College of Optometry and Harvard Teaching Hospitals. During this time, he conducted research on Dry Eyes, Diabetes and other ocular diseases. In 2012, Dr. Schnelle was awarded as a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry for his dedication to patient care and his commitment to clinical research and practices.

Dr. Schnelle’s practice philosophy is to make people’s lives easier and to help them in ways that they are unable to help themselves. “Vision is our primary intake of information before all else. It helps us learn, work, and play. I take special care to fully understand the needs and values of my patients in order to help them in the most comprehensive and sensitive way. I take the wisdom that evidence-based medicine has proven and treat my patients in the most relevant and appropriate way. I feel it is my responsibility to ensure the safety and health of every one of my patients while providing them excellence in their visual performance,” said Schnelle.

Outside of work, Dr. Schnelle is an involved father of two young girls and enjoys outdoor sports, sailing, woodworking and traveling with his wife and children.

Dr. Schnelle cares for patients of all ages and is a provider for most medical and vision plans.
