Dr. Nguyen was raised and completed all of her education in Orange County, California. She received a bachelor's degree in Biological Sciences at the University of California, Irvine and graduated with a Doctorate of Optometry at Southern California College of Optometry in Fullerton. Since the start of her career, Dr. Nguyen has become more concerned with the major increase in near-sighted patients, especially in the younger population. She noticed a surge during the Covid-19 pandemic as well, due to the increase in digital screen time. This has piqued her interest and desire in learning and utilizing more methods and tools to help with myopia management. Dr. Nguyen has experience in Orthokeratology but would like to expand her knowledge in other treatment options, such as atropine therapy, progressive lenses, and contact lenses. She hopes to help slow down the progression of nearsightedness in children and young adults, to prevent possible eye diseases that may stem from higher myopia. With the latest equipment provided here at Optometry on Orangethorpe, she hopes to provide quality eye care for the community. Dr. Nguyen enjoys spending quality time with family and her 21-month old son. Any extra leisure time would be used for cooking and baking or arts and crafts.
Dr. Huynh (pronounced ‘win’) or as most patients call her, Dr. Hollie, began her professional education graduating from University of California, Irvine in 2000 earning a B.S. Degree in Biological Sciences. She graduated in 2004 from New England College of Optometry (NECO) in Boston, Massachusetts. At NECO she balanced her academic and social life by being a Student Advisor, being very active as a member of the student council board, and winning grants for “Excellence in Clinical Presbyopia Management”. Dr. Huynh is an associate for Coastal Vision, NVISION, SoCal Eyes, and Feinerman Vision Center. She works closely with her patients, often attending the surgery personally to help her patients feel more comfortable with their surgery.
Dr. Huynh independently established Eastgate Optometry Care in 2006. She strives to help patients see their best and to exceed their expectations by treating her patients as a part of her family. Her goal is to help patients understand their eyes enough to maintain their eye health as needed for their active lifestyles.
When Dr. Huynh is not tending to her active son, Parker, and her daughter Aly, she is coming up with projects to do in the community and helping with donations to various charities. She also balances her life with hobbies such as running, playing softball, enjoying Broadway shows, and most importantly spending quality time with her many other family members and friends. She enjoys cooking for friends and family and experimenting with new dishes and welcomes conversation to exchange new recipes.
