Dr. Nguyen's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Nguyen "If there's one thing I've learned in my 15 years as an ophthalmologist, it's that nothing is more important than patient peace of mind. That's why my team and I are dedicated to making your vision correction experience as easy and comfortable as possible. My experience in ophthalmology and laser surgery is extensive. I earned a master's degree from McGill University, specialized in ophthalmology at the University of Maryland-Baltimore, and completed a 2-year fellowship in cornea and refractive surgery at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary at Harvard Medical School. I'm also a diplomat of the American Board of Ophthalmology and have done extensive research and academic writing in the ophthalmology field. But my story is about a lot more than degrees and research.I was born in Vietnam. At the age of 6 my family and I left the violence of that country for new opportunities in North America. Growing up in Montreal, I developed a strong interest in medicine. By the time I entered college, I knew vision would become my life's work. After graduating from Harvard's School of Medicine, I moved to the Washington, DC metro area. For the last 15 years, I've been the area's leader in vision correction surgery and treatment. Despite my career achievements, my true passion is my family–my husband Hoa and my sons William, Alex, and Christopher. Their love and support has helped me become the doctor and the mother I am today."
