About Tracy

Dr. Tracy Ho was born in raised in Honolulu, Hawaii.  She left the islands to complete her bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of California San Diego. After undergraduate studies, she worked in the healthcare industry for three years before entering the Southern California College of Optometry doctorate program in 2011. She graduated in 2015 with Magna Cum Laude honors and went on to complete her residency at the Albuquerque Veterans Administration Hospital in Ocular Disease and Primary Care. Dr. Ho enjoys seeing patients of all ages, but has special interest in caring for patients with glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetes.

I think one of the best parts about being an Optometrist is the trust patients give. They trust me to help them achieve their best possible vision. They trust me to care for the health of their eyes as my own. I am honored to have the opportunity to live up to these expectations every day, improving my patient’s quality of life through sight.
