Our Eye Doctor

Eye care professionals specialize in understanding how the human eye really works, as well as diseases and conditions that affect your vision – many of which do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses including eyeglasses and contacts.

Our optometrist takes the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.

Dr. David R. Tran

Although Dr. Tran is a native of Western Pennsylvania, he has always called Louisiana his second home. After graduating from The University of Pittsburgh with a major in Biology and a minor in Chemistry, he earned his Doctor of Optometry degree from The Pennsylvania College of Optometry in Philadelphia, PA. During this time, he completed five internships, including a rotation at the renowned National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. He moved to Louisiana three weeks before Hurricane Katrina to take the state board exam and has been “stuck” here ever since helping his relatives and the community rebuild.

Dr. Tran specializes in primary eye care, including the treatment of dry eyes, ocular allergy, eye infections, diabetic eye exams, corneal foreign body removals and the medical treatment of eye diseases. He also enjoys fitting and prescribing contact lenses and eyeglasses. Dr. Tran has been practicing in the greater New Orleans area since 2005.

In addition, he has also been a member of the American Optometric Association, the Optometry Association of Louisiana, the New Orleans Contact Lens Society, and the Pennsylvania Optometric Association.

In his spare time, Dr. Tran enjoys spending time with his wife, family and friends, playing basketball, photography, and traveling.
