Hi there! I’m Dr. Vicky Wong and I practice primary eye care with 3 other optometrists and an ophthalmologist in a Maryland suburb of Washington, DC called Rockville.
I grew up in Pittsburgh, PA and attended Elizabethtown College for undergrad. What made me choose optometry as a career was early on when I started off wearing pretty thick glasses in the 2nd grade. I’ve also always explained that I saw my eye doctor more often than my pediatrician growing up.
My life changed with simple contact lenses and at this day in age of instant gratification, what other medical field can say that you’ll know right away if a treatment works! So I went to the beautiful campus of Nova Southeastern University in South Florida for optometry school and continued my studies with an optional residency in ocular disease and low vision in Lexington, KY. This is what really to expand my horizons to take care of patients of any age – from babies to the elderly regardless of their eye conditions.
