Best standard of care

Patient centered care

Evidence based care

Every patient is different.  Dr Kong strives to provide each patient with the best and the most appropriate treatment by understanding the needs of each patient.  Dr Kong provides comprehensive ophthalmic care including treatment of glaucoma, cataract, monitoring of diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, treatment of dry eye syndromes.

Dr Kong received comprehensive ophthalmology training and glaucoma subspecialist training in Melbourne Australia and prestigious fellowship in Cambridge UK on complex cataract and glaucoma surgery.  He applies the best international standard of medical and surgical care to all his patients.  This includes the use of minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) when appropriate.

Dr Kong believes the best care for patients can only be achieved if treatment is based on strong clinical evidence.  Dr Kong continues to strive for best patient outcomes through research and critical assessment of medical evidence.
