    Biography

    Biography
    Betsy Nguyen, MD is a board certified cataract & glaucoma specialist, with 14 years of experience in her field. Trained at the prestigious, internationally recognized Jules Stein Eye Institute, at UCLA, Dr. Nguyen then became active in glaucoma research with the USC Doheny Eye Institute.

    After earning her medical degree with highest distinction at the top of her class from UCLA School of Medicine, Dr. Nguyen went on to UCSF for her fellowship in glaucoma. As a diplomate of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the California Academy of Eye Physicians & Surgeons, she was one of the team eye doctors for both the LA Angels and the Anaheim Ducks.
    Dr. Betsy Nguyen is an ardent researcher, to further treatment options available for all, and has extensive expertise in managing glaucoma and cataracts together. These commonly concomitant conditions are best treated together—treating one and ignoring the other will result in long-term problems for patients. Dr. Nguyen uses the most advanced technologies available to combine the treatment in an integrated fashion, offering patients with cataract and glaucoma the very latest in surgery and research.

    Customizing care to every one of her patients, Dr. Nguyen remains passionate about what she does and spends quality time counseling each one. “I give every patient the same level of attention and surgical excellence as I would give my own family.”
