Truc has over 10 years of experience in the eye care industry. She began her career as an optometric assistant at a busy group practice in Calgary. Her skill set and determination helped her climb the ranks quickly, as she took on the title of clinic manager in just over a year. She has since followed her ambitions to provide outstanding service to our patients in Sherwood Park.
Here at For Your Eyes Only, Truc manages patient care while overseeing clinic operations. She is the engine that drives this practice! With an eye for unique design, Truc is one of our best eyewear specialists. She is sure to get you into a frame that suits your unique personality and looks as stunning as your vision will be. As the office manager, she deals with our vast network of health care professionals and sets up meetings when called upon. Her greatest asset is her friendly, efficient and thorough customer service. She always has a smile on her face and is eager to tackle new challenges.
Like Dr. Bandali, Truc possesses a unique passion for giving back. She has helped at various community events around the cities of Calgary and Edmonton. She has also served on a global mission with OneSight. Truc helped over 14,000 patients in Chiang Mai, Thailand in May of 2012. This mission was special to her as she was able to serve with her husband, Dr. Bandali. Most recently, she helped 1,473 inner city children in Chicago. More than 1,200 glasses were made and donated to these kids, and the experience was heart-warming. Her compassion for the underprivileged is what sets her apart from many in the industry.
Currently, Truc is on maternity leave and enjoying time at home with her son. You might catch her and little Rayaan when they are visiting Dr. Bandali!

Like Truc, she possesses the unique skillset of multitasking, exceptional customer service and a work ethic second to none. You will always be greeted with a warm smile when you meet Dakota.
