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. Hundreds 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.
Lucy is careful to consider the opinions of patients when they’re visiting the practice. She loves to suggest frame styles to match each individual, and makes sure we understand your insurance in order to bill properly. After many years of working in administration, Lucy took a break to be a stay-at-home mom with her husband and 3 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. She is fluent in Hmong and proud to be helping the Hmong elderly get their vision taken care of.
Gaolee, Office Manager
Before joining Vang Family Optometry, Gaolee was working in non-profit for several years. Her most recent position prior to VFO included meeting donors, handling large donations, and building influence for an organization. Her experiences in non-profit prepared her to wear many different hats; at VFO, she enjoys developing office-to-patient relationships, billing, and administrative duties that allow the back-end work to be seamless. On the weekends she enjoys day trips with her husband and trying out new restaurants. Look forward to her bright smile and big hello!
