Tu-Anh Gopani, OD

Dr. Tú-Anh Gopani, a Therapeutic Certified Optometrist, is a graduate of Illinois College of Optometry.

She received her Bachelor Degree from Indiana University and started working in the optical industry both before and while in optometry school. She lived and worked in Hawaii for several years after optometry school but later moved to Columbia, SC to open a private practice with her husband. Their private practice, Eye Concepts, received the 2011 Best of Columbia Award in the Optometrists category by the U.S. Commerce Association (USCA) which recognized outstanding local businesses throughout the country.
