Amy Nguyen, OD received her Bachelor of Science in biology from the University of California at Irvine and her Doctor of Optometry from MCPHS University in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Before pursuing her Doctor of Optometry, Dr. Nguyen shadowed Medical Director Dan B. Tran, MD to be sure this was what she wanted to dedicate herself to. This shadowing at Coastal Vision Medical Group, under the guidance of a world-renown ophthalmologist, was the turning point that helped her decide to become an optometrist.
When asked what she likes about being an optometrist here at Coastal Vision Medical Group, Dr. Nguyen says, “Being able to care for patients both before and after cataract and/or laser vision correction. I love watching their quality of life improve immediately after their vision improves.”
Dr. Nguyen was born and raised in Southern California. Her hobbies include spending time with her husband outdoors, tennis, swimming, and snowboarding. She’s also a black belt in Taekwondo and is fluent in English and Vietnamese.
