Developmental-behavioral optometrist specializing in learning-based vision disorders.
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.

I hope to be able to get to the Palo Alto meeting this year. What are the dates and who are the speakers? Also will the meeting be held at the same facility as in the past. Let me know so that I may try to plan this. Hope to see you at ICBO
