Meet Our Doctor: Dr. Brittany Nguyen

Dr. Brittany Nguyen received her undergraduate degree from U. C. Davis with a B.S. in Biochemistry and her Optometry degree from the University of California at Berkeley. She has been practicing in the Bay Area for over 20 years. Besides private practice, she has regularly volunteered her clinical services at Samaritan House in Redwood City for the past 6 years and has started doing vision screenings for schools in Alameda and Contra Costa counties since last year. In her spare time she enjoys traveling and spending time with her family.


A personal note from Dr. Nguyen:

One aspect of optometry that I appreciate the most is the personal interaction I have with my patients.  I enjoy discovering each patient’s individual visual needs and figuring out the best way to address them. It’s a truly rewarding experience when patients get their new glasses and they can see better.
