I had the worst luck last week.
After an allergy attack last Sunday due to sardines which caused me to go to the ER, I experienced eye strain on Monday which eventually led to a real bad headache. The fatigue and stress from the allergy attack last weekend + eye problem can only mean a bad week.
Since I haven’t seen an eye doctor since we got here in Vietnam, I thought it would be best to see one now.
So enter American Eye Center at the 5th floor of the Crescent Residence.
Two doctors saw me, including the head, Dr. Nam Tran Pham. Dr. Pham was actually the head of Ophthalmology in FV Hospital when she decided to have her own practice bringing in other doctors with the her same philosophy.
I’m so bad with names but the main doctor who saw me was fantastic. He was very thorough and explained every test and answered all my questions. AEC’s equipment were pretty spiffy too.
Overall, I highly recommend AEC. The price may be a little expensive but the equipment, customer service, and thoroughness of the doctors makes everything worth it. Oh and since I used an HSBC credit card, I got 10% discount.
My eye is still in pretty good shape (+0.75) but the dryness is really bad. The doctor recommended eyedrops and a pair of reading glasses to help me focus when reading and using the computer.
I bought the glasses from Sky Optical Group in Sky Garden 1 — the same one found in Lotte Mart. They’ve got a lot of frames to choose from and best of all, they give discounts as they have just opened their shop in Sky Garden.
My son said that I look like a teacher when I wear ’em. I’ll take that as a compliment. 😉
