Drs. Jennifer and Chad Schirner had the perfect life plan. The happy couple met in optometry school, got married, and even moved to Flower Mound eight years ago. Everything was rolling along smoothly, and after several years of working for other people, they decided it was time to open their own practice. So that’s exactly what they did in February.
A month later, they had to temporarily shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“What a wonderful year to open a business,” Dr. Jennifer said with a laugh. “Suddenly, you’re having to immediately adapt.”
Thankfully, New View Optometry didn’t stay closed for long, and the Schirners are quickly becoming the preferred eye doctors for residents and families who crave that extra personal attention from a team that truly takes eyesight seriously. These are eye care professionals who specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as identifying risk factors, diseases, and other conditions that can affect your vision.
“We don’t want a practice where patients are coming and going every 10 minutes,” Dr. Jennifer said. “We take our time with everyone. These are our friends, neighbors, and people who live in our community. They deserve personalized care.”
New View Optometry does all the traditional things that most optometry offices do, whether it be eye exams, fittings for contact lenses, selling glasses, and treating conditions such as dry eyes, allergies, minor traumas, and more. So, what separates them? For starters, Dr. Jennifer specializes in specialty contact lenses, which are perfect for people who can’t wear regular soft contacts because of a previous injury or infection, etc. She also provides myopia management for children who are near-sighted. Secondly, Dr. Chad used to be an optician for 15 years and worked for a refractive surgery office. He is the person to see if you’re considering Lasik or had trouble being fit into glasses previously.
“He is involved with selecting the frame lines we bring in and the lens designs we offer to patients,” Dr. Jennifer said. “We keep lenses in stock, and we have an edger here to cut glasses and have them to you on the same day.”
Lastly, New View recognizes that many people hate having their eyes dilated or having air puffed into their eye. While these procedures are important, their latest technology allows them to take a retinal photograph instead and use different less-irritating instruments to check eye pressure.

“We are just trying to make coming to the eye doctor more convenient and more comfortable,” Dr. Jennifer said. “We want people to enjoy the experience, which is why we do so many different things to care for our patients.”
