Dr. David Truong received his Honours Bachelor of Science degree from McMaster University with a double major in biology and psychology. He then went to the University of Waterloo where he graduated with distinction as a Doctor of Optometry. Throughout his training, Dr. Truong completed several internships that focused on ocular disease, binocular vision, pediatrics, low vision, contact lenses, and refractive surgery co-management.
In his final year of optometry school, Dr. Truong completed an ocular disease and therapeutics internship at the Eye Associates of Pinellas in Florida where he received advanced training working together with cataract, vitreoretinal, and oculoplastic specialists. Throughout this internship, Dr. Truong gained valuable experience co-managing patients with ocular conditions such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and dry eyes.
Dr. Truong enjoys volunteering and has participated in an humanitarian optometric mission trip to Tela, Honduras. While in Honduras, he and several other I CARE International volunteers provided comprehensive eye examinations and prescription eye wear to the underserved, in an effort to improve the quality of life of residents by providing the gift of better vision and health.
Dr. Truong practices full-scope optometry with an interest in ocular disease, contact lenses, and refractive surgery co-management, providing both pre and post-operative care to patients undergoing LASIK and PRK procedures. He believes that awareness is the best way to prevent vision loss, so he prides himself on educating his patients and providing the tools and resources they need to take care of their health. He is a member of the College of Optometrist of Ontario, Ontario Association of Optometrists, and Canadian Association of Optometrists. He is fluent in both English and Cantonese and is excited to be providing eye care to the Thornhill community.
