Dr. Heather Bae

Dr. Bae is a native to Yorktown, VA and is compassionate about bringing eye care to the community that she’s familiar with. After graduating from VCU in 2013, she moved to Tennessee where she completed her training at the Southern College of Optometry and obtained her Doctor of Optometry in 2019. During her time at SCO, she completed her clinical rotations at John Kenyon Eye Canter and Pacific Eye Care. It was in California that she found her love for private practice, because it allows her to get personal with patients and truly build relationships that are lasting.

Dr. Bae is passionate about serving the underserved communities and has been on multiple service trips to various Central and South American countries. She also spent five months after graduation volunteering in eye clinics throughout Belize. This is where she was able to assist in cataract surgery clinics and perform comprehensive eye exams to communities in need.

When she’s not in the clinic then you can catch her volunteering at church or in a cafe with friends!
