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 is a native of Sacramento. She received her B.S. from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and her Optometry degree in 2014 from the Southern California College of Optometry at Marshall B. Ketchum University in Fullerton, CA. 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. She is a member of the California Optometric Association and American Optometric Association. 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. She is eager to give back to the minority communities 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 and two boys. Ask about their dog Coco, too, the next time you visit the office!
Gaolee, Office Manager
Before joining Vang Family Optometry, Gaolee completed her B.A. at UC Irvine and spent several years working in the non-profit sector. Her most recent position prior to VFO included database management, meeting lots of donors, and training volunteers. Her experiences in non-profit prepared her to wear many different hats – at VFO, she enjoys developing & nurturing office-to-patient relationships and handling 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!
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. Her participation makes for a better vision care experience to our patients. In her spare time, Sara simply loves to be with her adorable daughter, husband, and extended family.
