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.
