Dr. Tracy Eickhoff

Tracy Eickhoff, O.D.

Dr. Tracy Eickhoff grew up in Friendswood, Texas and graduated from Friendswood High School. She went on to attend Texas A&M University and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Biomedical Science in 2004. From there she attended the University of Houston College Of Optometry where she received her Doctor of Optometry Degree in 2008. She is a member of The American Optometric Association, The Texas Optometric Association, and The Gold Key International Optometric Honor Society, The Ocular Nutrition Society, and has served as Adjunct Clinical Faculty at The University of Houston College of Optometry.

After several years of practicing in a group setting, Dr. Eickhoff decided to open Bella Vista Eyecare Associates, with the goal of serving patients’ visual needs in a warm, welcoming environment. She dreamed of a practice and a team that was like a family, who would serve patients with the same level of care they would give their own mother, brother, or child. That dream has become a reality!

Dr. Eickhoff sees patients of all ages for all kinds of eye conditions, but she especially enjoys working with children and helping patients who suffer from dry eye disease. She is continually working to gain knowledge of the most cutting edge research in dry eye disease, ocular nutrition, computer vision, children’s vision, and general ocular health.

When Dr. Eickhoff is away from the office, she enjoys spending time with family and friends including her husband Juan and son Derek. She loves being outdoors (especially at the beach, lake or river), baking, reading, and watching football (Gig ‘Em Aggies! Go Texans!).

Tony loves playing and watching sports. His favorites are sand volleyball and baseball. On the weekends he likes to spend time with friends, family, his wife and daughter. His future plans are growing in his profession, traveling, and getting a baseball contract (although he’s afraid he is past his time; he is 101 in baseball years)!
