Eye exams used to be as simple as going to the eye doctor, getting a pair of glasses and going on with your day.
Unfortunately, blurry vision isn’t always that straightforward. Most times, we can attribute the issue to being nearsighted or farsighted. However, there can also be underlying health issues such as diabetes, hypertension or macular degeneration. Also, as we work and play more from home, too much computer or device usage can lead to dry eyes and fatigue.
To adapt to these changing needs, Dr. Thuy Quach started The Eye Place in 2012. The practice includes a boutique optical as well as advanced technology to diagnose and treat the eye. Her vision was to create a fashion-forward practice that puts patients first. Over the last eight years, she has worked to deliver quality eye care, while also building a support team to provide the best service from start to finish.
She and her team strive to stay involved in the community through partnerships with local schools, providing education about eye health and support for vision screenings.
Over the past few years, Dr. Quach has shifted her focus toward dry eye therapies, orthokeratology and myopia control. Being nearsighted herself, Dr. Quach has become particularly interested in myopia control, and she has used orthokeratology, which is the use of special contact lenses to control the progression of myopia, on her three daughters.
As she transitions to her new role, The Eye Place has expanded its team of doctors to continue the practice’s commitment to personalized eye care.
Dr. Nicholas Le joined The Eye Place in 2019 and helped launch the new location, The Eye Place of Hamlin. He previously practiced in the Millenia area for five years.
Dr. Jennifer Owen joined in 2018 after serving as an officer and optometrist in the U.S. Air Force. The newest addition is Dr. Rachel de la Riva Marcy. She has spent the last few years helping patients in the Dr. Phillips area keep their vision clear and their eyes healthy.
“As we continue learning to deal with new challenges during this stressful time, we are grateful to the community for their continued support,” says Dr. Quach. “As a team, our goal at The Eye Place is to continue the same exceptional care and service we have become known for.”
