Dr David Kong is the third partner/owner in our practice and is a graduate of The College of NJ and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University. During his studies, Dr. Kong served as the student New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians President and the Vice President of his class and was a recipient of the Dr. Les Mintz Scholarship Foundation Award. Following graduation, he joined a large ophthalmology practice in central NJ. However, he missed that personal touch and caring attitude you find at Moorestown Eye and wasn’t thrilled living in the NY sports market…He is now happy to be back in Southern NJ where he can root for his beloved Philly Sports Teams! Highlights of his resume include:
- NJ Society of Optometric Physicians Board of Directors
- NJ Special Olympics Opening Eyes Clinical Director (that’s where he met Dr. Kim back when he was a student and he ultimately took her position as director when she retired from that role!)
- Received the 2016 NJ State Young OD of the Year Award.
- Has obtained additional training in specialty scleral lenses. He has had multiple patients go from legally blind vision to nearly 20/20 through the use of specialty scleral contact lenses.
Outside of the office, Dr. Kong and his wife recently welcomed a beautiful baby girl and they have settled locally in the Moorestown area. Dr. Kong is full time at Moorestown Eye seeing patients Monday through Friday (including 2 evenings a week) and some Saturdays.
