Dr. Tania La, O.D. was born in Vietnam and immigrated with her family to the United States at the age of two in search of freedom, better education, and new opportunities. With the goal to live the American dream, she graduated with honors when completing her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology at the University of Texas in Austin. Dr. La continued her education and received a Doctorate's Degree at the University of Houston Optometry School in 2002, where she also graduated top of her class and had the privilege to serve as the class representative. She had a wonderful opportunity to intern at the Lasik Institute of the Rockies in Denver, Colorado, where she had extensive training in Lasik management.
In 2006, Dr. La joined her husband, Dr. James Baker and launched Baker Family Eyecare in Hurst, Texas. Together they provide exceptional comprehensive eye care and vision examinations to patients of all ages and their families. She has a strong interest in ocular infections and injuries, co-managing Lasik and diabetic retinopathy, and complex contact lens fitting, such as keratoconus and corneal refractive therapy.
Dr. La is committed to properly educating and treating each and every patient like family. Furthermore, she ensures that the patients leave the office with a true understanding of their eyes, eyewear, and health.
Dr. La is an active member of the Tarrant County Optometric Society, Texas Optometric Association and American Optometric Association. In addition, she participates in charitable programs such as InfantSEE and Sight for Students, providing vision and eye care for infants and students. She also had an amazing opportunity to travel to Honduras with the Volunteer Optometric Service to Humanity to perform exams on the underprivileged citizens. While practicing her professional skills in Spanish, Dr. La learned the true meaning of giving the gift of sight.
Dr. La enjoys spending time with her husband and their five children, who are the light of her life. She loves attending church, cooking, mountain climbing, snow skiing, and traveling. One day, she hopes to teach her children the honor and rewards in providing vision and eye care.
