Dr. Courtney Biel Rhodes O.D. is the owner and founder of Optique. She is a native Texan, born in Austin and raised in McAllen. Dr. Rhodes has always loved math and science, so it only makes sense that she graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Houston – College of Optometry. Dr. Rhodes launched Optique in 2009. She has a passion for running the business, providing the perfect refraction on every patient and keeping up with the latest trends in eyewear fashion. Dr. Rhodes is licensed as a Therapeutic Optometrist and is an Optometric Glaucoma Specialist. She is currently a member of the American Optometric Association, the Texas Optometric Association, and the Central Texas Optometric Society.

Dr. Rhodes spends her free time with her husband and their two children. She is a dedicated Crossfitter, and enjoys jogging Lady Bird Lake, reading, movies, traveling and date nights out with her husband in downtown Austin.
