Dr. Nguyen was born in Vietnam and moved to the states at the age of 8. She grew up in the suburbs of Houston, TX, and graduated with honors with a Bachelor of Science from the University of Houston. She then went on to the prestigious University of Houston College of Optometry for another 4 years of education and training for her Doctorate of Optometry degree. Dr. Nguyen is a Therapeutic Optometrist and Optometric Glaucoma Specialist, which means she is licensed to treat, manage, and prescribe medications for most eye injuries, infections, diseases, and many more.
Dr. Nguyen received extensive training and provided complete care for under-privileged patients with a concentration in glaucoma, diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy, and cataract co-management throughout her externships.
Dr. Nguyen started her practice in North Dallas/East Richardson in 2011. Thanks to her supportive and loyal patients, she was able to expand into a newer and bigger facility in east Richardson in the spring of 2016. Amid COVID 2020, she partnered with her long-time friend to open Van Alstyne Eye Care.
Dr. Nguyen is passionate about providing quality eye care and is constantly striving to learn new and better ways to improve the quality of vision and life for her patients. Seeing is important but we must also feel good doing so. Dr. Nguyen sees all patients from the ages of 6months and older. Although she can see all patients, her special interest is custom contact lenses for those that have never been able to wear contact lenses before, treating dry eyes and correcting “lazy” eyes, eye strains/headaches with methods many have never heard of before and is not available at any other optometric practices.
Dr. Nguyen is an active member of the Northeast Texas Optometric Association, Texas Optometric Association, and American Optometric Association. Dr. Nguyen loves to volunteer her time to perform free eye exams around the community. Dr. Nguyen and her husband have their hands full with their adorable son, Henry, and daughter, Chloe. Her life and professional motto: Treat others how you would want to be treated.
