Dr. Nguyen comments on becoming an ophthalmologist:
“I decided to pursue ophthalmology as a career for several reasons. Ophthalmology is both intellectually stimulating and technically challenging, demanding an exceptional level of deftness and skill. The practice of ophthalmology involves treatment of all ages and allows for the establishment of close and long-lasting relationships with patients. Probably the most influential factor in my decision to pursue ophthalmology, however, is the inherent reward of being an ophthalmologist—the immense gratification found in preserving and restoring sight. It is truly fulfilling to work in a field in which there are such significant opportunities for improving the lives of patients.”
