He obtained his Doctor of Optometry in 2002 from the University of Alabama-Birmingham School of Optometry. During his training, he completed two rotations in the Birmingham Low Vision Clinic. In this rotation he had the opportunity to fit patients with devices and train them how to use them to accomplish goal oriented tasks. He participated in an outreach program in a state funded home in Decatur, AL that gave much needed care to special needs and institutionalized patients. He completed two rotations in the UAB contact lens clinic which focused on educating students in a wide range of specialty contact lens including gas permeable, bifocal, keratonconic and post-surgical fittings. A pediatric rotation introduced him to vision therapy and the techniques to assist his youngest patients. He completed two specialty externships during 2000 and 2001. The first was at the Birmingham Veteran Affairs Hospital which focused on geriatric eye care and the treatment of diabetic eye disease, cataracts and glaucoma. His second externship was at the Charlotte Ear Eye Nose and Throat Center under the supervision of nationally renowned Dr. Ron Melton. During this training he learned state of the art management techniques for a wide range of ocular disease.
Dr. Tennant and his wife, Dr. Angela Ellerman, were married in Madison in 2002 and started their family with the birth of their first child, Evan in 2008. In January 2011, their family was blessed with a second son, Logan. The family hopes to remain in Madison for many years to come.
