Dr. Susan Ung is a licensed therapeutic, glaucoma, and Paragon CRT certified optometrist. She earned her Bachelor of Science and Minor in Management degree from the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Ung advanced to receive her Doctor of Optometry degree from the New England College of Optometry in Boston, Massachusetts.
Dr. Ung has been working at the DLP Eye Group, an Optometry–Ophthalmology clinic, since 2003. She served as a clinical instructor for many years and enjoys providing eye care services to the community with the knowledge and skills she possesses. She encounters and treats various ocular diseases, such as dry eye disease, uveitis, corneal ulcer, conjunctivitis, etc. on a daily basis. She diligently removes the foreign bodies of the cornea and conjunctiva with her gentle hands. Moreover, Dr. Ung has great relationships with the Ophthalmologists in the clinic where she co-manages surgeries, including cataract and glaucoma surgeries, pterygium excision, blepharoplasty, and vitrectomy.
Dr. Ung also performs specialty contact lens fitting. She fits CRT contact lens, keratoconus gas permeable contact lens, scleral lens, and multifocal and soft toric contact lenses. As a certified Paragon CRT eye care professional, her goal is to utilize orthokeratology (Ortho–K) to control the progression of myopia and at the same time allow patients to be free of glasses. She feels great satisfaction when she sees her young patients having great vision and very happy with their CRT contact lenses.
In her spare time, she loves to garden and walk her dog. She also likes to travel with her family when her children are on school breaks.
