For years I’ve had problems with my eyes not receiving the correct prescription for the contacts I needed…Upon meeting Dr.Avi he set my mind at ease and said “let’s get you fixed up” and proceeded to prescribe the perfect lenses for me! Now I see better than ever thanks to his professional care to detail…I highly recommend him to anyone that is in need of a great eye doctor! Thank you so much!

Kung Eye Center is great! Dr. Kung, his doctors, technicians, and office staff run the eye center with precision, efficiency, intelligence and most of all, with caring and empathy.

All medical facilities and offices should be run as well as Kung Eye Center.

I am now on the road to the best vision I can have. I highly recommend Dr Kung and the Eye Center. You will be very pleased!

Dr. Kung and Dr. Chen are wonderful. Coming from 40 years of excellent care from my prior ophthalmologist, who just retired, I had high expectations, and those have been met! The office is well-run, and all the staff have been kind and competent. Thank you!
