The team also includes a low vision specialist, certified orthoptists, certified ophthalmic technicians and assistants, certified retinal angiographers, and licensed opticians. As a result, they are all fully qualified to handle all eye care needs.
Having grown up in West Palm Beach, Florida, Dr. Nguyen went to complete his undergraduate degree at the University of Florida.

He then went on to complete his fellowship training in glaucoma at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.
Aided by his expertise, the doctor is board-certified in ophthalmology by the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABO). The ABO is an independent, non-profit organization responsible for certifying ophthalmologists in the United States of America.
In addition to having published numerous papers in several internationally recognized journals, Dr. Nguyen remains a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Glaucoma Society, and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery.
In his spare time, Dr. Nguyen enjoys participating in electronic sports, playing chess, and spending time with his wife.
