"For most, vision is the most precious sense; your eyes can't be entrusted to just anyone. You should know that I am a person just like you. I was born in Idaho and grew up on a farm in the Treasure Valley. I attended a local university before serving with the Idaho National Guard in Irag. I attended medical school in Michigan then completed a residency in ophthalmology in the suburbs of Detroit. My experience includes repairing the most complex ocular and facial trauma as well as treating rare ophthalmic manifestations of diseases not seen in most parts of the developed world. Although there is no other place I would rather be than here. I have taken the opportunity to hone my surgical and diagnostic skills on different surgeries around the world in North America, South America and Asia.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Mong ""Your body is more than your eyes and you are more than just a body.  While my specialized training is in the ocular adnexa, as an osteopathic surgeon I will always treat you as a whole person.  Every dimension of "you" plays a role in the way your body reacts to treatment.  I will take the time to help you define and articulate your symptoms and goals in order to develop a treatment plan with which you are comfortable.

I'm here to help you achieve the best vision possible, keeping in mind your goals and needs.  I treat every patient like a family friend;  I will never recommend a procedure or treatment that I do not believe will benefit you.  Communication is the key when it comes to your health and I will that the time each visit to ensure all of your questions are answered.  I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and will strive to exceed your expectations."

Dr Mong is very thorough, knowledgeable and listens to his patient's concerns. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an ophthalmologist. You will leave well versed in your condition and your care options.

Very patient and thorough. We like him, a lot. We felt absolute confidence in him and will definitely recommend him. My husband and I both saw him.
in Middleton, Idaho |
Dr. Mong is a treasure, I'm so happy I found him. I had cataract surgery several years ago in another state and was noticing I was not seeing things as clearly as before. Dr. Mong performed a laser procedure on each eyes, and what a difference! He and his staff at his Meridian office and his place of surgery are fantastic. They are welcoming, helpful, and most important don't rush to get you out the door.
