I am thankful to be able to provide eye care to the Vietnamese community in our native language”, commented Dr. Da-Thuy Van, Galveston and Houston Ophthalmologist at The Eye Clinic of Texas. While there are more than 90 languages spoken in Houston, Vietnamese is more often heard than many as more than 25% of Houston’s Asian population is of Vietnamese origin or background. In fact Houston is one of the most well-established and largest Vietnamese-American enclaves in the Unites States along with San Jose and Orange County, California.
“As an eye doctor who is an eye care specialist I often find it necessary to explain things about eye diseases and eye surgery as well as medical eye treatments-being able to do this in Vietnamese makes it much easier and comfortable for my Houston eye care patients”, said Dr. Van. “Even for routine eye exams-being able to ask questions and perform testing with the instructions being communicated in Vietnamese makes it less stressful for my patients.”
If you or someone you know is in need of an examination or consultation with an eye care specialist certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology who speaks Vietnamese please feel free to call Dr. Da-Thuy Van at The Eye Clinic of Texas at 800-423-3937 to schedule an appointment.
