Dr. Toan A. Tran is an orthokeratologist, therapeutic optometrist & optometric glaucoma specialist born and raised in the DFW area. His dedication and personal commitment to “serving patients first” provides for a thorough, comfortable and overall excellent experience.
After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin, Dr. Tran went on to obtain his Doctor of Optometry in San Juan, Puerto Rico and is clinically trilingual (English, Vietnamese and Spanish).

He is an avid golfer, plays flag football twice a week, and loves supporting hometown sports teams (Mavericks, Rangers & Cowboys).
Dr. Tran has been in the optical & optometry field since 1999. He started off as a newly hired optician, earning and learning his way through every position within the the front office before being accepted into Optometry school. Once he graduated from Optometry School with his doctorate, he knew the only way to fulfill his knowledge and craft was to open up a private practice.
He’s now a proud owner of an on-campus practice at the University of North Texas in Denton. This Denton location allows him to make immediate educational impact to all students from undergraduate to post doctorate, employees and professors of both UNT and TWU in the area. By opening Wink Eye Care in the early summer of 2013, he is able to practice full scope optometry from all different ages and generations and happily serve the community of Little Elm and Frisco.
Dr. Kim Blois
is our full-time optometrist at Wink Eye Care and College Optical Express. A “country girl” at heart originally from North Texas, Dr. Blois’s natural hospitality and professional experience give patients a personal and precise visit each time. She is committed to your visual health.

Before graduating from the University of North Texas (Go Mean Green!), Dr. Blois started in the optical and optometric field as an optician for COE. It was then, Dr. Tran mentored and instilled in Dr. Blois his philosophy of “serving patients first.”

Knowing first hand she and Dr. Tran shared a common passion, Dr. Blois rejoined the COE and WEC team. She is excited to be back and serve the residents of North Texas!
