As an adult seeking care for eye muscle-related problems, I have been very pleased to have such clear explanations from him, and the chance to gradually work toward the correct solution to my problems. I am contemplating surgical correction, but he is thankfully being conservative, using plastic stick-on prisms, increased over a period of time, to see exactly what degree of correction may be appropriate.

Dr Tong recommended glasses, drops, and monthly apts for my son. Upon seeking a second opinion, we found that he did not need any of this. I am concerned about the accuracy of his assessment.

Billing is a big problem

His bedside manner with his child patients is fantastic. He is happy to explain anything and everything to parents.

I recently had my first appointment with Dr. Tong and I was so impressed with him. He asks very detailed questions and was able to pinpoint my problem immediately. I am not a child but my regular eye doctor recommended him as a second opinion and I?m so glad she did since his speciality is more detailed than a regular eye doctor. He is extremely kind, gentle and very thorough. He didn?t try to push his plan to help, in fact he suggested that I wait awhile to think about it. .
