Dr Tran is a Melbourne-based eye surgeon, specialising in glaucoma, pterygium and cataract surgery.
Dr Tran is a specialist consultant in the Glaucoma Investigative Research Unit (GIRU) at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital. She also practices privately at multiple eye clinics across Melbourne, where she aims to provide the highest possible level of eye care to her patients.
She is actively involved in the education of registrars and fellows (future ophthalmologists). She presents regularly at ophthalmology conferences and is actively involved in the continuing education of the wider eye care network including orthoptists and optometrists.
She is on the Board of OBCK (Ophthalmic Basic Competency Knowledge) examiners and is a Fellow of RANZCO.
Dr Tran is passionate about her patients and their eye health.
At the heart of her practice are two core values: providing complete eye care with personalised & ethical patient care.
Complete Eye Care
Whether the desired result is improved sight, improved eye health, treatment of a temporary complaint or management of a long term disorder, Dr Tran actively works with both the patient and the wider healthcare network including Optometrists, General Practitioners and other sub-specialists to provide 'complete' care that is holistic and comprehensive.
Personalised Patient Care
Patient advocacy is an integral part of Dr Tran's practice. Patients' concerns and best interests are at the core of all decisions and interactions.
Dr Tran takes the time to discuss any test or assessment results, fully explaining the condition and what it means, the treatment options available and the expected (realistic) outcomes.
