What Our Patients are Saying

I was very happy with my visit to Dr. Nguyen’s office. She spent a lot of time answering my questions and explaining my new prescription. She explained the images of my eyes, which no eye doctor has ever done. All of the employees were friendly and professional. I would recommend this practice to anyone who would like an eye doctor who is dedicated to the future health of your eyes. I was very impressed!

Front office/technician

My name is Kamalani Chun, my position here at Maui Optometry is front office/technician. I graduated from King Kekaulike 2015. After high school I focused my studies into nursing and patient care. My position with Maui Optometry involves checking in patients performing preliminary vision and eye health tests and getting them ready for doctor to examine. I strive to learn new skills and to put smiles on people’s face. I enjoy working with people because it makes me feel good to know I’m helping and taking care of them as best as I can. My future goal is to become a nurse. Outside of work I am energetic and love to explore new places, I enjoy spending time with my family at the beach or anywhere really. You’ll always see a smile on my face no matter how bad my day is.
