I have a very tricky eye prescription to get right, and I've had to see a lot of eye doctors over the years who very often get it wrong the first and second time. I can usually tell by now when it's going to be a problem by how the exam goes. I'm still waiting to find out how well the glasses I get from this visit will actually work for me, but every indication from my interaction with Dr Chung is that she *really* knows what she's doing. She adjusted the suggested prescription, double checked it through the testing lenses to confirm it, and mapped out a sensible plan for my eye sight needs for the next couple years! I feel very hopeful that she managed to hit on just the right prescription for the discrepancies in my vision.
Dr Chung is extremely thorough. She diagnosed the reason for my dry eye problems instead of just throwing eye drops at me. I finally have relief after two years of issues, and multiple optometrist visits with other small clinics. Dr Chung has so much more advanced science and technology at her disposal. Very happy with the service and the experience.
Dr. Chung has performed cataract surgery on both my eyes. She has been very attentive and I have always been able to get an appointment when needed.
