Doctor & Staff
Meet the experienced and friendly doctor and staff who make Vang Family Optometry a proud provider of vision care products and services in Sacramento.
Paula Vang, O.D.
Dr. Vang received her B.S. from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and her Optometry degree from the Southern California College of Optometry at Marshall B. Ketchum University in Fullerton, CA. She is board certified by the California State Board of Optometry. During her studies, Dr. Vang served on a medical mission to El Salvador providing eye exams and glasses to those in need. Following her graduation, Dr. Vang spent a few years caring for patients in Walnut Creek, Fairfield, and other regions of California. Thousands of patients have entrusted their eye care to Dr. Vang!
Vang Family Optometry is a dream fulfilled for Dr. Vang. She grew up in Sacramento and is glad to be back! Dr. Vang is eager to give back to the Hmong community through her work and truly appreciates serving all people in the greater Sacramento area. Dr. Vang enjoys spending her free time making memories with her husband, two boys, and their energetic dog Coco.
After many years of working in administration, Lucy took a break to be a stay-at-home mom with her husband and 4 children. After that period, Lucy was brought on by Dr. Vang to assist in being a quality practice. Lucy has been with Vang Family Optometry since our opening in February 2018. Lucy is careful to consider the opinions of patients when they’re visiting the practice. She finds joy helping our children patients, and loves connecting with all of our patients. She is fluent in Hmong and proud to be helping the Hmong elderly get their vision taken care of.
Sara is our newest staff member and received her Paraoptometric Technician certification (CPOT) from the Charles A. Jones Career & Education Center. She is fully engaged when guiding patients through pre-testing and works closely with Dr. Vang in the exam room. Her favorite things to do at the office include fitting patients into the perfect frame and utilizing the newest technology to make pre-testing easy and accurate. She loves spending her spare time with her adorable toddler girl, husband, and extended family.
Gaolee, Office Manager
Before joining Vang Family Optometry, Gaolee finished her bachelors at UC Irvine and spent several years working in the non-profit sector. Her most recent position prior to VFO included database management, meeting donors, and organizing special events.
