Local Optometry Business Flourishes Thanks to Dr. Thuy Pham

By Randy Economy

Vision health and creative eyewear has exploded in the Los Angeles County during the past several years.

Multi-billion dollar retail outlets from big box warehouses, to corner drug stores now have “eye care professionals” willing to take customers to the cleaners instead of providing solid, nurturing eye care health.

In the glare of the “eye care wars,” one local enterprising Cerritos resident Dr. Thuy Pham is breaking barriers at her cozy, friendly, and caring practice that has literally changed the lives of her patients for the past several years. After spending two decades with her successful practice in Rosemead, Dr. Pham Optometry is now open for business at 17617 S. Pioneer Blvd., here in Artesia and she could not be happier.

Dr. Thuy Pham, O.D., a longtime resident of Cerritos has been giving back to the community as of late by providing local eye screenings at local civic events, such as the AT&T health fair held at the Cerritos Town Center and the Cerritos College health fair which assisted Rep. Linda T. Sanchez.

Dr. Pham is a graduate of Indiana University, Bloomington where she earned her doctorate of optometry; she has been practicing optometry for 21 years and has been a member of the American Optometry Association for 25 years.

Dr. Pham strives to provide the highest level of optometric care along with excellent customer service. She is a very active member of the community and her practice provides free vision screenings at the local adult schools and health fairs.

Dr. Pham is the mother of two local Cerritos students, her oldest currently attends Cerritos High School and her youngest is a student at Cerritos Elementary School. “My kids are the focal point of my life and being able to raise them here in the Cerritos community has been a real blessing,” Dr. Pham told Hews Media Group-Community Newspaper in a recent interview.

As an active member of the Artesia-Cerritos Lions Club, Dr. Pham is also giving back to the community by collecting, repairing, and recycling eyeglasses for those who need vision care around the world in impoverished neighborhoods.

Visitors and patients of Dr. Pham can expect lots of pampering during their appointments.

Dr. Pham goes the extra step, and takes pride in working with only the most experienced surgeons who use state-of-the-art technology and has advised many of her valued patients, including her sister and best friends to proceed with LASIK.

“I educate my patients on LASIK and the benefits it provides whether it is a lifestyle choice or for convenience,” Dr. Pham said.

Dr. Pham also manages diabetic and glaucoma patients and performs orthokeratology contact lens fittings for children with progressive myopic conditions. She enjoys fitting patients for soft contact lenses and Toric lenses for patients with astigmatism. Her amazing staff help assist with eye examinations, diabetic and glaucoma screenings, Ortho-K Contact Lenses, and Keratoconus Screening.

Dr. Pham Optometry carries a selection of fashionable brands, such as Gucci, Tom Ford, Burberry, Ray-Ban, Oliver Peoples, Tag Heuer, Oakley, Tiffany&Co., and Bvlgari.

When Dr. Pham is not working, she enjoys skiing, gardening, camping, traveling, and cooking, which allows her to sample some of her favorite ethnic dishes from around the world, as well as continuing to walk down the path of life with enthusiasm.

Dr. Pham Optometry Family Eye Care is located at 17617 S. Pioneer Boulevard, Artesia. Telephone is (562) 924-2020.
