Being a doctor has many challenges, however, there is no reward like being able to give back. Dr. Thai began her journey of giving back, both locally and internationally with a wonderful organization known as OneSight. Through OneSight, Dr. Thai has provided free eye exams to local patients in need and also traveled the world with a team of dedicated eye care professionals to provide free vision exams and glasses to the people who needed them the most. Many of these individuals can see clearly for the first time because access to eye care and healthcare are so limited in their parts of the world.
In 2014, Dr. Thai travelled for two weeks to India and her and her team provided eye exams and eye glasses to over 10,000 people. In 2015, she went to the neediest parts of Tampa, FL, to provide exams and glasses to elementary students. In 2016, she traveled to Tanzania, Africa, to provide eye exams and eyeglasses to more than 5,000 people. None of this would be possible without the OneSight organization.

What Dr. Thai loves most is being a part of the community. She and her husband have two girls and live in the same community with many of her patients. She loves building relationships and helping her neighbors have access to the best vision care available.
