About Our Practice
Established in 1970; Dr. Ross has been practicing Optometry in the Campbell-San Jose area for thirty years. He started Family EyeCare Center to serve the vision care needs of the local community in a family friendly way. He thinks of the Family EyeCare Center staff as a family of people working together to help the eye care needs of the patients.
Since Dr. Ross has started, he has been able to attract the most talented doctors which are personal-able, caring, skillful, and invested in patient care. Doctor Wan, Doctor Taylor, and Doctor Tuan have been happily practicing at Family EyeCare Center for many years. They are now excited to introduce Doctor Ruiz and Doctor Chang to the practice; both excited to continue the great experience to new or established patients.

Dr. Albert Chang was born and raised locally in the Bay Area. After graduating from Monta Vista High School in Cupertino, he attended UC Santa Cruz and Southern California College of Optometry for undergraduate and graduate studies. Spending eight years away from home allowed him to appreciate how much he loves the South Bay.
Dr. Chang recently married his wife, Carol, and they reside in Santa Clara. He not only strives to offer the best eye care, but also to build long term relationships with his patients and their families. He does have particular interests diagnosing and managing ocular disease, including diabetic retinal disease, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.

Julia Lee, O.D.
Dr. Julia Lee was born, raised, and schooled in Southern California. Once high school was completed, she attended the University of California, Los Angeles then found her way to Orange County for optometry school, graduating at the Southern California College of Optometry with a great interest in studying, diagnosing, and managing glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. Afterwards, she pursued an additional 1 year residency training at the VA Medical Center in West Los Angeles, where she enjoyed her time serving veterans and handling complex cases in primary eye care, low vision services, specialty contact lenses, and in-patient settings.
After doing a summer’s worth of research at UC Berkeley in the summer of 2010, part of Dr. Lee’s heart was left in the Bay area. Moving to NorCal has always been something of a dream for her, and she’s thrilled to have made the move! She’s excited to start setting down roots in the South Bay and building long-term relationships with her patients. Dr. Lee is able to communicate in Cantonese, Mandarin, and clinical Spanish. Her secret passions in eye care include ensuring patients utilize updated technology, have both comfortable and clear vision, and experience the most pleasant eye exam as possible. She regularly volunteers her expertise for free vision screenings, be it on the streets in West Hollywood or in the capital city of Honduras.
As serious as she is about eye care, she enjoys spending time with friends and appreciates punny jokes, quick wit, and dry humor. In her spare time, she loves to curl up in a good book and a good cup of hot tea, spend time with church activities, and experiment in the kitchen with cooked and baked goods. If you decide to visit San Diego and see her doppleganger, rest assured; she has a (fraternal) twin sister!
