Kristen Watson, O.D. is originally from Boston, Massachusetts. She completed her Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Vermont. She then attended Southern College of Optometry in Memphis, Tennessee.
Dr. Watson completed her Optometric training at Kirtland Airforce Base Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico which emphasized treating ocular disease. She also completed training at Colorado Optometric Center, specializing in primary care and vision training. She received her Doctorate of Optometry in 1998.
After graduation, Dr. Watson worked in Copley Square in Boston for six months. She decided to move to Colorado to explore the West and made her move permanent after meeting her husband in Denver.
She has enjoyed practicing in a primary care setting since moving to Colorado. Her patient’s eye health and clear vision are top priority. Taking time with each patient to educate them on caring for their eyes, and time to understand each patient’s concerns are both very important to Dr. Watson.
Dr. Watson spends a lot of her free time with her family. Her three young children keep her quite busy. She also enjoys the beautiful outdoors of Colorado.
