Dr. Channing Baird
A native of Colorado, Dr. Baird’s annual mission trips to all parts of the world are her passion bringing medications, dental services, and prescription eyeglasses to impoverished communities. She enjoys meeting people and seeking answers that help improve their lives. She says, “Optometrists do more than care for their patients’ eyes, they can improve a person’s vision. It’s rewarding to have a skill that people need globally.”
Dr. Kathryn Lachenman
Prior to joining Eyes of the World in 2014, Dr. Lachenman practiced in a refractive and cataract surgery setting, but her desire for more one-on-one time with patients guided her back to private practice. She has been practicing since 2011.
When not in the office, Dr. Lachenman enjoys running, skiing, and spending time with her husband and daughter.
Dr. Rupa Patel
A proud native of Colorado, Dr. Patel joined Eyes of the World in 2018 and has an interest in ocular medical management and advanced contact lens fittings. “I love interacting and talking extensively with patients and spending time getting to know them so I can find the best way to help with their visual problems and concerns,” said Dr. Patel.
When not in the office, Dr. Patel can be found exploring around Denver or the mountains through outdoor activities and spending lots of time with family and friends.
