Minh-Tri Trang is a final year optometry student at UNSW.
Favourite Disease: Pachychoroid disease spectrum because it is interesting to see how the presentations link and multimodal imaging makes it more exciting.
What about Optometry really grinds your gears? (if any!): When patients decline that they’ve had eye surgeries in the past but you see IOLs on slit lamp hmmm.
What drives your passion for Optometry? Emphasising to the community that the profession is more about making glasses! Education of pathologies and management of eye conditions is an avenue I want to stress.
Something you discovered about the uni not everyone may know? Exams may be tough but if you put yourself in the shoes of learning to improve patient care, studying the hardcore eye conditions and clinical techniques becomes easier and more fun.
What is your go to place for food at uni? Stock Market at upper campus and recently Stellini Pasta Bar at lower campus.
Something others may not know about you. In another life I would be a fashion designer or baker. Latest project was a ball gown and 250 decorated cookies!
What song do you play that instantly lifts your mood? Outro: Wings by BTS
