When an opportunity to purchase Toomey Belanger Eye Care in Zachary became available, Dr. Tran knew it was the perfect location for his family. The family appeal of the community along with the best school district in Louisiana was the prime buying decision. Even though the practice name has changed to Optimal Vision Care., the staff remains the same as well as the quality of care. Dr. Tran is new to the Zachary area but is excited to serve the community.
Dr. Tran and his wife, Huy, currently reside in Baton Rouge with their four children, Hao, Duyen, Dinh, and Dai. Their four adorable, energetic, and charismatic children keep them quite busy outside of work. Aside from family time, Dr. Tran loves to experiment with new dishes, play golf with friends, and watch LSU/Saints games.
