Dr. Dai Tran, OD
Dr. Tran was raised in the Bay Area and although she traveled to the Pennsylvania College of Optometry to receive her Doctor of Optometry degree, her heart remains here in California where she immediately returned to practice. Her experience stemmed strongly from her years working with ophthalmologists as an eye associate examining pathologies such as cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Her advocacy for patient education and proper eye care has lead her to volunteer in several mobile clinics in impacted areas such as Tijuana and Castroville.
Outside the exam room, she is also an active volunteer at her children's school and often found there. Once a race enthusiast, she still enjoys outdoor activities such as running, hiking and skiing. Her favorite tradition remains traveling with her 2 schooled aged girls and husband of 12 years.
