As an intern, Dr. Do completed rotations at the Portland Veterans Administration Hospital in Portland Oregon, Pacific Cataract and Laser Institute in Bellevue, Washington, the Optometric Vision Development Center in San Diego, California, and Oak Harbor Naval Hospital in Oak Harbor Washington. Through these various clinics, he received a well-rounded clinical experience in various specialties including primary eye care, ocular disease, management of refractive and ocular surgeries, vision therapy, and contact lenses. He also has experience in recognizing binocular dysfunctions in children and its correlating effects in the classroom through his M.Ed. coursework.

In addition, Dr. Do conducted a thesis project on the symptomatic correlations in children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Convergence Insufficiency (CI). He presented his original research at the AAO meeting in Chicago, Illinois and the College of Vision Development (COVD) meeting in Bellevue Washington this past year. For his work, he won the BSK Chapter Award for Exceptional Research, a graduate award for Pacific University’s graduating class of 2018.
Dr. Do enjoys trying new craft beer, noodle dishes, sports and is an avid Portland Trail Blazers fan. Fun fact: he is allergic to peaches.
