Athens, GA |
Dr Dong saw me very quickly because my primary care doctor thought I should get my eye checked as soon as possible. He saw me the same day. He was very professional and friendly and nice. Also the staff were kind and helpful. I liked the office, very comfortable. I felt in very competent hands with Dr. Dong.

I had cataract surgery on the left eye and am seeing a lot better than I was before, and am having the right eye done next month. He answered all my questions, and I would not hesitate to recommend him to others!

My husband had cataracts in both eyes 12 years ago, Dr. Dong's performance was outstanding. Never had a problem. I have been seeing Dr. Dong for 10 yrs. Very professional doctor, staff and atmosphere. Wouldn't trust my eye care to anyone else. Will be having surgery soon and I'm sure I will receive the excellent care that I'm receiving now!

I went into this office for a cataract evaluation and came out seeing lines in my eye that weren't there when I went into this office. a lazer cut on my eye for pressure release was performed and now I have 2 lines in the lower part of my eye that they say is normal, I have to blink constantly, wear a cap and /or full sun glasses when outside, I even see the lines when inside and trying to watch tv! I have submitted 3 surveys and none seem to show up when I look at surveys! this is weird?

Dr. Dong used a lens in my left eye that has been recalled! Hoya model 251 if you have this lens and are you experiencing blurry vision like me? Dr. Dong says nothing is wrong and WILL NOT replace it, told me to go to another doctor.
iSert 250/251 lenses distributed in the US were not recalled. FDA approval in Sept 2013, allows the use of the lenses. No reports show a higher rate of inflammation and endophthalmitis when implanting the lenses. I encourage you to seek a second opinion with a reputable ophthalmologist, so you understand the surgery was to the standard of care with an IOL implant that was FDA approved and widely used in the US. Best Regards, Dr. Jing Dong.

Dr. Dong and staff were very knowledgeable and took the time to answer question that I had. I was pleasantly surprised on how quick the surgery was and how quickly I recovered. I appreciate that Dr. Dong and his staff were very professional throughout the process.

Dr. Dong was very informative, friendly and caring. I felt safe and secure with him surgically repairing my eyes. He came highly recommended with all my family and friends.

I was fortunate enough to have LASIK with Dr. Dong. The procedure and after care were above my expectations. The LASIK procedure itself was simply life changing. My vision improvement has been tremendous. I only wish that I could have performed it earlier. The staff was very courteous and understanding. Dr. Dong was great on the follow up appointments and I really enjoyed his manor and humor. I highly recommend Dr. Jing Dong and Georgia Center for Sight.
