Chelsea Bradley, OD
Clinical Instructor of Optometry
The sense of family with the ICO community is what drew me to ICO. Everyone is very friendly, accommodating, and seems to truly want to help one another. Additionally, it is clear ICO values producing generations of optometrist who go above and beyond for their patients and provide the best care possible.
Dr. Bradley grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area. She graduated top of her class from Saint Mary’s College of California with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, then attended UC Berkeley for optometry school. She completed her residency in Cornea and Contact Lens, also at UC Berkeley. In her free time, she likes to explore new restaurants and breweries, go on bike rides, and hike (or now that the California mountains aren’t nearby anymore, walk Lakeshore Trail or the River Walk).
