Dr. Garrett D. Wentz is passionate and enthusiastic about providing top quality eye care for all of his patients. He was born right here in Lubbock, Texas and attended Trinity Christian High School. After graduating high school, Dr. Wentz attended Abilene Christian University where he earned a BS in Biology in 2013. While at ACU, Dr. Wentz gained an appreciation and passion for the optometric profession after shadowing one of our previous doctors, Dr. Reber. This motivated him to excel in his studies and hold the honor of the Dean’s list throughout his undergraduate career. From ACU, Dr. Wentz went on to Optometry School at the University of Incarnate Word in San Antonio where he graduated with his Doctorate of Optometry in 2017.
Dr. Wentz spent his 3rd and 4th year of optometry school serving the people of San Antonio within the University of Incarnate Word’s clinics. He then expanded his clinical skills and passion for the profession during his externship in Fort Worth, Texas. Dr. Wentz had the privilege of getting trained by the Texas Optometric Association president elect, Dr. Jenny Terrell, at a Community Eye Clinic in Fort Worth, Texas. After his externship in Fort Worth, Dr. Wentz was fortunate enough to receive further training at the Amarillo VA where he had the pleasure of serving our veterans by providing them with quality eye care.
Not only does Dr. Wentz realize how important your eyes are for vision, but also the importance the eyes play in evaluating systemic health. Dr. Wentz is excited to return home to Lubbock and begin serving and providing his patients with excellent eye care. Other than working to provide quality eye care, he enjoys spending time at the lake and ranch with his wife and dog, attending church, and being with friends and family.
