Hilltop Hail: Dr. Tina Dang Aldana, TBI Optometrist

Hilltop Hail: Dr. Tina Dang Aldana, TBI Optometrist

Story and photo by Thomas Panker
Landstuhl Regional Medical Center  Public Affairs Office

Dr. Tina Dang Aldana has always considered herself a ‘teacher at heart,’ and her positon as traumatic brain injury optometrist at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center utilizes that skill set with every patient she treats. This passion was also fueled by the loss of her brother-in-law who was the first and only optometrist killed in action while serving with the U.S. armed forces. Her background includes degrees in Education and a Doctor of Optometry, combined with training in ocular disease and neuro-optometry, which led to pursuing specialized care for TBI patients.
