Dr. Tien Wong is absolutely fabulous. I have experienced holes in both eyes and he has fixed them both over the course of 3 years. Now I wear glassses to read, but that’s all. Last visit, I told him he was a magician!! He is so caring and is masterfully skilled . His office staff is very efficient and friendly. My personal opinion is that Dr. Wong is the best retinologist in Houston!!

Dr Wong is extremely gentle with the treatment he provides. I had used a different doctor for my first treatment, but he was so rough I could not go back. Dr Wong is so careful, you barely know he is numbing and injecting into your eyes. Makes a once-scary and unpleasant experience very painless. His office is extremely clean. His staff is courteous and helpful. I would strongly recommend him to anyone in need of care from a retinolpgist.
