Dr. Emelline Chen, O.D.


Dr. Chen grew up in Chino Hills, California — a smaller town sandwiched between San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside Counties. She received her Doctorate of Optometry from Western University of Health Sciences and has completed internships in many different environments including a Veterans Affairs Outpatient Clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma and West China Center of Medical Sciences in Chengdu, China. After spending the last few years in Cleveland, Ohio, she’s thrilled to now be in sunny San Diego.

She became a Doctor of Optometry because of the impact that clear, comfortable vision can have on someone’s day-to-day life.

Outside of Urban Optiks Optometry, most of her free time is spent taking HIIT or hot yoga classes, reading, cooking, and training her Springerdoodle puppy. She also enjoys taking time off to travel. Some of her favorite trips include Honolulu, Cabos San Lucas, NYC, Austin, Toronto, and Iceland. Random fact, she hiked/walked over 60 miles in the 4 days spent exploring Iceland.
