Optometrist Chesepeake Va About Dr. Amber Teten

Dr. Amber Teten

Hi, my name is Dr. Amber Teten and I am a family optometrist Chesapeake VA, that specializes in pediatric optometry with a special place in my heart for vision therapy. I opened Navigation Eye Care in Chesapeake, VA in October 2022 and since then, we have been blessed beyond measure by the number of patients coming in through our doors. The level of patient care that we have provided has blown our patients away and is something many people didn’t think was possible from an optometry office in Chesapeake, VA. We strive for our patient experience to feel welcome as friends and family.

In the short time that we have been open, we have been able to clearly be set apart from the other optometrist Chesapeake VA. Typically, a patient is treated as just another number and name on the schedule of a busy optometry practice. While the individual care they may receive is of high quality. Most people come away with the experience less than thrilled. We feel that shouldn’t be the way our patients walk away from interacting with our office.

The way we have been able to achieve setting ourselves apart is through our attention to detail and caring about each person that we interact with. No matter if that is from someone calling into the office accidentally because they had the wrong number or one of our patients coming into the office for their eye exam. Each interaction is special, cherished, and we want to make it memorable not only for us but for the other individual as well. We take great pride in going the extra mile to exceed what a patient might have thought possible from a small optometry office. You and your family’s eye care and experience means everything to us.

From our family to yours, we want to thank you for taking the time to check us out and see if we are the right fit for your family’s eye care needs.

Navigation Eye Care, as an optometrist Chesapeake VA, has been dedicated to providing the highest quality eye care services to the residents of Chesapeake, and the greater Hampton Roads area since opening our doors in 2022. Our team is committed to ensuring that your experience with us is exceptional from start to finish. At Navigation Eye Care, we pride ourselves on not only providing excellent care but also building lasting relationships with our patients. We believe that maintaining healthy eyesight and the best possible vision is crucial to maintaining overall health, and we strive to make that a reality for each and every patient that walks through our doors.

My husband, Patrick, spent many years on Active Duty and the Reserves in the Navy to include multiple workups and deployments. One of the main things that we came away from our experience in the Navy is that the value of the family is incredibly important. Those values still hold true to this day for us and something we have infused throughout our family run business. Which is why we do as much as we can to support and cater to the busy family. We understand that you may be dealing with your own loved one off on deployment and having a little extra helping hand can make all the difference in the world.

We invite you to check us out and share in some snacks and cold drinks while the kids enjoy coloring and other activities. All while we take care of you and your family’s optometrist Chesapeake VA needs. We will be here for many years to come and hope you will join us for all the fun we are looking to have along the way.

Optometrist Chesapeake VA Amanda

Amanda Stampfler

I was born and raised in southwest Michigan – where I went to school with my now husband. I went to college at the University of Colorado in Boulder (Go Buffs!) and loved every second of my time there!

After my husband finished flight school in Texas we ended up in Chesapeake, where we eventually got married and started our family. We have two boys, Tanner and Carson, who are absolute balls of energy and entertainment! We also have our sweet rescue pup, Layla, that we adopted during our time in Texas.

In my free time I love to spend time with our families, travel, and find the best food and shopping with friends. We recently moved back to the area after spending a couple of years in Japan for my husband’s job (Navy pilot). I am so excited to continue raising our kids here and to work with such a fantastic group of people to serve the eye care needs of families in our area!

My name is Shellbi and I was born in Southwest Louisiana; home to the best food on the planet! I attended the Culinary Institute of America in Napa Valley, CA before joining the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman.

After being stationed in Norfolk, I met my husband, Ryan, and we decided to make Hampton Roads our home. Together, we have a beautiful baby boy, Merrick, and a rambunctious fur baby, Junie.

In my free time I enjoy travel, coffee shops, brunch, and you can find me at the beach on any warm day! I am excited to be a part of the Navigation Team, and having grown up within the industry, it is the perfect fit for me.
