    Biography
    Education and experience in both engineering and medicine are what make Dr. Dan Tran an expert in vision correction technology. Dr. Tran personally selects the best technology for each of his patients. In practice since 1999, Dr. Tran was the first surgeon in in the world to use an IntraLase laser to perform All-Laser LASIK procedures, Dr. Tran introduced IntraLase technology, now the general standard in care for the field of laser vision correction.

    Dr. Tran combines the IntraLase laser with Custom LASIK to deliver a clear picture of what his patients see, allowing him to correct vision with incredibly superior outcomes. Studies have shown that the combined use of the technologies actually increases a patient’s chance to achieve results of 20/20 or better. With a procedure so precise, it’s now a crucial component for vision correction approved by NASA, and the Department of Defense, for U.S. Service personnel.

    Dr. Tran is also the first surgeon in the world to combine the commercial use of IntraLase technology with intracorneal rings (Intacs™) to treat patients with keratoconus; a disorder that leads to a loss of vision in young adults. With his expertise, Dr. Tran has been instrumental in mentoring other surgeons around the world about this treatment.

    Highly proficient, Dr. Dan B. Tran is one of the few corneal specialists in the world to access the latest in LASIK technology to correct near vision for those who wear reading glasses and are over the age of 40, in addition to treating cataracts. Dr. Tran’s state-of-the-art technology allows him to see real time outcomes as he performs surgery so that all adjustments can be made almost immediately, thus optimizing the results of each surgery.

    In 1999, Coastal Vision received corporate contracts with both the Long Beach Police Department and the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department to be the official LASIK provider for both law enforcement departments. Eye doctors, physicians, and high-level executives, have also chosen Dr. Dan B. Tran for his surgical skills. Those who know the industry well prefer to have Dr. Tran as their surgeon. Dr. Tran takes great pleasure in restoring vision for his patients, family, and friends, and in witnessing the impact that it has on their lives.
