Skilled Ophthalmologist Off to a Successful Start at San Antonio Cataract and LASIK Vision Correction Practice

San Antonio Eye Specialists is one of the area’s premier cataract and LASIK vision correction practices

Dr. Iskander has built a strong foundation here and I hope to add my own touch so we can bring even more innovation and a second set of techniques to our patients.

Dr. Jorge A. De La Chapa, DO, has joined veteran eye surgeon and medical director and founder of San Antonio Eye Specialists, Dr. Nader Iskander, at his practice. De La Chapa’s accomplished background and enthusiastic approach have been warmly welcomed by patients and staff alike.

While new to the practice, Dr. De La Chapa is not new to ophthalmology. De La Chapa has worked with patients in the San Antonio area for over a decade. He specializes in cataract surgery, glaucoma surgery, eyelid surgery, LASIK, and diabetic eye diseases. Both of his parents are ophthalmologists, giving him a unique personal approach. It allowed him to learn about the eye from a young age, which fostered a love and a desire in him to be a doctor who could help patients see better and have clearer vision for life.

“I am very honored to have Dr. De La Chapa at my practice. It has definitely created a positive and exciting momentum going into 2018; his expertise is a great addition to our San Antonio Eye Specialists family,” Dr. Iskander said.

De La Chapa is a board-certified ophthalmologist. He attended undergraduate and graduate school at The University of Texas at El Paso and completed medical school at Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. After graduation, Dr. De La Chapa completed a one-year rotating internship at Columbia Tulsa Regional Medical Center, where he also completed his ophthalmology residency. He is also a devoted family man who spends all of his free time being a daddy to his eight children and supporting his family in all of their endeavors.

“Beginning work at San Antonio Eye Specialists has been wonderful so far. Dr. Iskander has built a strong foundation here and I hope to add my own touch so we can bring even more innovation and a second set of techniques to our patients,” Dr. De La Chapa said.

Dr. De La Chapa is still accepting new patients.
