Optometrist and Staff

Anh Doan, O.D

Therapeutic Optometrist
Optometric Glaucoma Specialist

Dr. Anh Doan was born in Vietnam and immigrated to US at the age of 12 without speaking any English. She lived for a year in Minnesota before moving to Houston. After graduating from Robert E. Lee High school in 1985, she focused in on a fast track at the University of Houston, finishing her undergraduate studies in 3 years. As part of her education, Dr. Doan completed her externship in eye diseases and treatment at the prestigious Omni Eye Services in Atlanta and South Texas Eye Institute in San Antonio. She received her Doctor of Optometry degree and license in 1992 from University of Houston.

After working in the Houston area with other optometrists, Dr. Doan started her practice in 1996 and has been proudly serving her patients in its original location since.

Dr. Doan’s practice focuses on eye health and vision care for the entire family. It aims to provide the best vision possible and prevent eye problems and diseases through examination, detection and education. She is now seeing a second generation of patients, and it is that long term bond and relationship that make her practice so special.

Outside of practice, Dr. Doan is an avid runner and a knitter (but not at the same time). She has completed 7 marathons and 37 half marathons. The medals are displayed in the exam rooms. When not running, she likes to knit hats and socks, and is currently creating Mollie, a doll who will reside at office soon. Dr. Doan and her husband have 2 children: Alex and Addison.
