Dr. David Kong is a graduate of The College of NJ and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry at Salus University. He became a very valued member of the NJ optometric community even while he was attending school. 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!
Always being community and service minded, Dr. Kong started volunteering for the NJ Special Olympics in 2010 and that is where he met Dr. Kimberly Friedman. Dr. Kim noticed his compassion and clinical skill and had always hoped he would someday join our practice! After several months part time, Dr. Kong’s is now a full time optometric physician in our office – he sees patients Monday through Friday and some Saturdays.
In September of 2016,the NJ Society of Optometric Physicians noticed Dr. David Kong’s service to the profession and to the community and awarded him with the Young OD of the Year award for NJ.
