Eden Yoon, MD

Eden Yoon, MD

Cataract Surgeon

Kind and approachable, Dr. Yoon has a cheerful and fun-loving personality. Passionate about helping people see, he enjoys the intricacies of eye surgery. Born in Glendale, California, Eden grew up nearby in San Gabriel. He loved playing basketball and dreamed of becoming a doctor. In college, Eden tutored biology and chemistry students, spent a year studying in Spain, and graduated with a major in Spanish. Before medical school, he mentored abused mothers and their children at a shelter in Peru. He also had the opportunity to observe eye surgery at Pacific Cataract and Laser Institute. Seeing how happy patients were with their new vision was a crucial factor in his decision to pursue ophthalmology specialty training. In his last year, Dr. Yoon was able to spend a month doing cataract surgery in Zambia, Africa with a veteran eye surgeon learning how to restore vision without modern instruments. Joining a private clinic in Vancouver, Washington, Dr. Yoon focused on comprehensive ophthalmology and cataract surgery. He and his wife, Brinja, a dental hygienist, have a daughter and son—Tealyn and Tayte. Caring and committed, Dr. Yoon wants to help disadvantaged people in the world be able to see. “I feel like I have received so much, and volunteering is a way for me to give back.”
