“I am so fortunate to have a career that allows me to give back to this community which gives me so much in return. Optometry is so much more than eye exams: it is quality of life improvement…sight-saving early detections…surgical support. Most importantly, it’s relationship-building. I truly enjoy the connections I have with my patients and I am honored to be part of their lives.”

Philip Hwang, O.D.
