Dr. Yong is an accomplished refractive and cataract surgeon who specializes in advanced techniques in laser vision correction, femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery, premium intraocular lens surgery, corneal collagen cross-linking for keratoconus, minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS), and anterior segment reconstruction.

Dr. Yong has been fascinated by the workings of the eye since a young age. “The eye acts as a portal to provide clues into what may be going on in the body as a whole,” Dr. Yong explained. “That’s when I knew ophthalmology was the right field for me.” Dr. Yong received her undergraduate degree from UCLA and her medical degree from Brown University. She went on to complete her internship at Yale, a residency at New York Medical College, and a fellowship at Harvard Medical School – Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary.
