The purpose of this paper is not only to provide a resource for optometrists and others in communicating with Vietnamese-speaking patients; it is also to provide a basic background about the Vietnamese culture, and especially to educate people of how to treat these patients in a way that is not considered rude and inconsiderate. This booklet has been separated into sections depending on the type of procedure to be performed. The English phrases are on the left. The Vietnamese translation is on the right. The sections are roughly organized similar to a typical examination. Accompanying this manual is a compact disc. It includes all of the words and phrases covered in this manual, but spoken out loud so the user can get a better feel for how the language sounds.
