Profile Information

Occupation
Developmental-behavioral optometrist specializing in learning-based vision disorders.
About
When asked why she became an eye doctor, Dr. Hong remarked, “I have a passion for helping people improve their quality of life. By improving their vision, I can improve so many facets of their life. At Family Vision Care it's all about providing patients with optimal vision for work, school, sports and life so that they can get the most out of it. By spending extra time with each of my patients, getting to know their individual needs and offering the latest examination methods and treatment choices, I will provide them with the BEST possible vision care possible.”

Dr. Carole Hong, in partnership with Dr. Kristina Stasko, has been in private practice at Family Vision Care and Vision Therapy (FVC) in San Carlos, for almost 15 years. Dr. Macson Lee is a valued associate in their practice, holding all the same patient care philosophies which have made Dr. Hong and Dr. Stasko trusted resources with professionals and patients alike. Doctors at Family Vision Care have expertise in the areas of detection and treatment of infants, children and adult with vision problems related to reading, learning, head injury, sports, autism, attention, and/or computer work.

Dr. Hong is a native of San Mateo, California, went to Aragon High and UC Berkeley as an undergraduate. She got her optometry degree from Southern California College of Optometry and completed a residency in vision therapy at State University New York College of Optometry. She is board certified in Developmental Vision Care and Vision Therapy receiving her Fellowship from the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD) in 1996. She has been a COVD board member since 2003, and has held the position of Vice President of COVD since 2007. As a past clinical professor at UC Berkeley School of Optometry and currently an adjunct professor of the Pennsylvania College of Optometry and SUNY State College of Optometry she has had the privilege of teaching students and externs.

Dr. Hong enjoys spending time with her husband John and their three children. She likes cycling, skiing, camping, arts and crafts, theater, kick boxing, collecting sports memorabilia, and watching her kids play basketball and baseball.

Hi Carole,

Nice seeing you at COVD also. Not sure how all this stuff works so be patient with me. We need to get Paul, Diane, Shelly, and the externs in the loop. What do we do next?
