Dr. Koch was raised in Spring, Texas. He studied Biomedical Science at Texas A&M University where he received a bachelor's degree in just 3 years. After graduating he went on to obtain a Doctor of Optometry degree from the University of Houston and began practicing in the north Houston area.
He has worked in a variety of private practice settings and, at each of them, Dr. Koch has introduced new opportunities for visually impaired patients in the form of specialty contact lenses. Certain conditions of the cornea (the front of the eye) such as scars or degenerations may limit a person’s vision in a way that glasses can no longer help them. Dr. Koch enjoys using his clinical skills to restore that lost vision and get his patients back to their jobs, hobbies and daily lives.
Dr. Koch still recruits with the University of Houston College of Optometry at Texas A&M BIMS 101 classes several times per year; when he isn’t traveling to out-of-town Aggie games.
When he is not in the clinic, Dr. Koch enjoys completing household construction projects, making messes in his kitchen, and taking pictures of his cat Lizzy with his wife Bailey, who is also an optometrist.
