Dr. Nguyen graduated from UCSD in 1989 with a B.A. in Biology. She spent the next year and a half at UCSD Medical School doing research and co-authoring papers on senescence and oncology gene therapy. When project funding became an issue, she decided to fulfill her longtime goal of becoming an optometrist. She returned to school and earned her doctorate from UC Berkeley School of Optometry in 1995. She has been in practice since then; joining 4S Eyecare and Optometry in 2007. She has an emphasis in fitting specialty contact lenses, including bifocal, keratoconic, and anisometropia. Therapeutic privileges are utilized with the ability to prescribe topical antibiotics, anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, and other ocular and systemic medications. Dr. Nguyen also served as a Board member of the San Diego County Optometric Society. She currently resides in Carmel Mountain with her husband and two young children.

Patient Reviews

Overall Rating

I highly recommend this eyecare shop. I had Dr Nguyen in the past and was awesome, personalized approach. As assistant manager, I recently dealt with Lucia and she was awesome too, taking all the time of the world to do some research about the type of frames I am looking for. They have very high end glasses, from Coach to Prada and everything in between (even if they don't show all the stock at the store, as is not a big shop) and my insurance cover part of the frames and most of the lenses. Even if I did not find the red frames that I am looking for, I most probably will buy my sun glasses (also with prescription) in here. I don't give 5 stars because is the second time in a row I cannot find what I am looking for, but in matters of glasses you have to be picky as they last for a least a couple of years. Here, you can be all the picky you want, they all seem to be very patient people.
