I found Dr Wong to be pleasant, friendly, and professional. His staff is excellent, helpful and patient. He was thorough and answered my questions, explaining clearly what I asked about. I did feel that the laser cataract technique was pushed too much, since I had decided against it due to the cost. But I was treated very well and felt that I was in the best hands during surgical procedures. I would recommend him.

I had cataracts removed from both eyes within two weeks of each other. Both surgeries went well, beginning with a comprehensive examination and work up leading to surgery. The nursing staff was very polite and gave clear instructions for preparation and post surgery protocol. I was made to feel at ease all during the process and appreciate the time and patience that was given to me. Dr. Shannon Wong was very easy to talk to and I felt comfortable all during the surgical procedure.

Dr. appears competent, but more financially driven than patient driven. I made an appointment to understand my condition, typical progression, and options. Condition - there was no explanation or time spent other than quickly answering questions with little context. Typical progression, answer - unknown. I understand everyone is different and was looking for this is what I've seen in others with similar issues. Options - geared heavily towards lens change, 12k cost with no guarantees. Next!

After wearing glasses for many years, I decided to have iLasik surgery. I couldn't be happier with the results! Dr. Wong and his staff at Austin Eye were very welcoming and helpful. I felt completely at ease with them. I highly recommend Dr. Wong.

Dr Wong oversold a Bausch and Lomb IOL called CrystalLens to me. This was an inappropriate lens for someone my age, and was priced above market value. It is virtually impossible to remove, making revision impossible. I would have been much better off with a monofocal lens, not to mention that it would have been cheaper

I would recommend DR. Shannon Wong . He is very professional, courteous and always available to answer your questions. I had two eye surgeries and felt completely at ease in his hands.

My cataract surgery is scheduled for next week. I am very impressed with Dr. Wong. He was patient with my endless questions and quite personable, in addition, to his obvious knowledge and expertise. I have already recommended him to friends!

Many years ago Dr. Wong performed PRK on my eyes. That was a phenomenal success! Just three weeks ago he removed a cataract and implanted a new lens...once again phenomenal results! I am so thrilled with the outcome I can't wait to get the other eye done. From top to bottom Dr.Wong and his staff are true professionals!

He is very rude when answering questions and talking and I understand he is very business focused, but it is also his job to make the patient feel comfortable and not pressured. Very impatient too.
