Dr. Truong was born and raised in Salem, Oregon. After attending Oregon State University for his undergraduate studies, he discovered his passion for eye care while working at the Elks Children’s Eye Clinic. Performing children’s vision screenings at Head Start preschools across Oregon, he found the opportunity to educate and impact this young group particularly rewarding.
He transitioned to work at EyeHealth Northwest as a technician, where he worked for several years before moving on to pursue his degree in optometry at Pacific University. During his didactic training, he was enthused about studying the anatomy, physiology, and diseases of the eye. As such, he purposely chose to complete his clinical training at a refractive surgery center and both the VA Portland and VA Roseburg Health Care Systems. He is excited to be returning to EyeHealth Northwest as a provider for the Portland-Metro area.
Outside of work, Dr. Truong is an avid fan of the Portland Trailblazers, enjoys exploring the outdoors, cooking, trying new foods and spending time with his wife and two young boys.education
