Dr Leung performed cataract surgery on me in April 2014. At that time I chose to have the crystal lens in each eye. This was quite a decision for me as they were pricy. For the first six to eight months I questioned my judgement as to whether I made the right decision. Now, two years later I am so happy with I the path I chose as I have 20-20 vision and don't need glasses. I am a 75 year old woman and believe; when you have your health you have everything.

I was visiting from out of state when I experienced an eye emergency on New Year's Eve morning. I found Dr. Leung on the web and called the office. From the very first hello until I left the office absolutely every aspect of my visit was impeccable! I am so grateful they were able to see me on such short notice on a holiday. When I move to San Diego, Dr. Leung will be my choice for all my eye care needs!
