The Right Spectacles

Eyeglasses can create a strict impression or a friendly one, radiate a dynamic or a laid-back look, or express extravagance or subdued modesty. In other words, your glasses create highlights. Just like your clothing, the eyeglasses you chose make a statement about your style, your attitude towards life, and your personal taste. This is why choosing the right frame is so important.

Our Commitment

Our doctors, surgeons, and staff adhere to the highest levels of professional ethics. We truly treat patients like family. It is our honor and privilege to serve our loyal patients over the years spanning generations of Fort Worth families.

Our surgeons always choose a conservative approach to disease treatment. For example, although cataract eye surgery is one of the most commonly performed surgeries in the country, we will always try to correct vision to a functional level with glasses or contact lenses before recommending cataract surgery. With any surgery, there are inherent risks that are unavoidable. We believe that any eye surgery should only be performed when there is absolutely no other option.

The Drs. Chu meticulous attention to detail and compassion for their patients achieve the best possible outcomes.

Unique and Innovative Approaches

Our surgeon, Dr. Richard Chu, DO, is one of only a handful of cornea subspecialty trained surgeons in the country. He is the area’s tertiary referral meaning he is the highest level of medical authority in regards to the cornea.

He performs the most challenging of anterior segment ocular surgeries: corneal transplantation. The Corneal transplant is only performed when there are no other options to save a patient's eyesight. This is a high-risk procedure often times resulting in rejection and many other potential negative outcomes. Very few microsurgeons in the world attempt to perform this procedure. Dr. Chu embraces the challenge and as a result, is lauded by his peers and patients alike. Dr. Richard is widely published in his field.

Dr. Chu had the vision to develop Chu Eye Institute from our parent company EYEWORKS GROUP. EYEWORKS GROUP was already an established market leader in eye care and eyewear. However, Richard would never take no for an answer and understood the patients’ need for his specialty in the region. His tireless efforts brought the family eye care practice into the future by elevating our technology, service offerings, and standards.

The Doctors have restored the eyesight of thousands of patients over the years. They have elevated the quality of eye care and ocular microsurgery in Fort Worth and beyond.

Community Involvement and Contribution

The Chu Family, the founder of EYEWORKS GROUP, are local leaders who give back to their community and profession.

EYEWORKS focuses our community involvement efforts on an eye and vision-related causes. We provide volunteer eye care services and glasses for the Fort Worth Country Day School Breakthrough program. This program encourages underprivileged children toward attending college. Our specific goal is to ensure vision problems do not hinder or limit a child's learning potential.

EYEWORKS is a high volume provider of eyeglasses to the Fort Worth community annually. As a result, our optical locations are the main collection site for the Lions' Club eyeglass collection program. We also contribute eyeglasses frames to Lighthouse for the Blind. Additionally, EYEWORKS sponsors a scholarship at the Fort Worth Rodeo Calf Scramble.

Our doctors are active contributors to their profession. Prior to her career in clinical patient care, Dr. Lena Chu was a widely published scientist and researcher. In fact, the electron microscopy laboratory at the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center in Fort Worth is named in her honor.

Dr. Robert Chu, as a result of his leadership abilities and his commitment to extraordinary eye care, was elected by his peers to serve as the youngest President of the Tarrant County Optometric Society and the Board of Directors of the Texas Optometric Association.
