Wyatt was diagnosed with strabismus when he turned three years old. Our eye doctor recommended corrective surgery. After research, we were hesitant due to the many cases of repeat operations and temporary results. Over the course of four years, we saw four different Optometrists. All of them kept increasing Wyatt's prescription strength and insisted surgery was our only option. When is left eye started turning inward even with his glasses, we became frustrated and searched the internet for alternative treatments. We learned about vision therapy and found Dr. Jong in Baton Rouge.
We were shocked with the results of his initial eye examination. His strabismus had caused his brain to distrust the image it was receiving from his left eye and was only accepting what he saw with his right. He had no depth perception. This finally explained his inability to catch a ball. He was unable to track it in the air.
Vision therapy has been a blessing for Wyatt. After working with his therapist Tabitha for a year, there have been multiple improvements. His left eye no longer turns inward with or without glasses. He has depth perception and can finally catch a ball! He does not skip lines while reading aloud. His self-confidence has increased.
We are thankful we chose vision therapy over surgery. We are grateful to Dr. Jong, Tabitha, and the rest of the dedicated staff.

I highly recommend this business for their specialty services, care, professionalism and promptness. If you have any learning problems, dyslexia or anything of the sort, try Dr. Jong and her team to check your eyes. My niece was falling a lot but had 20/20 vision; Dr. Jong and her team figured out her problem and she no longer falls. My daughter was having problems with math. Dr. Jong and her team figured out why and her math scores went up. I had problems reading Latin and it's due to a form of dyslexia. Specialty glasses help fix that problem as well. Dr. Jong has a lot to offer the community and I highly recommend her. This is my first online review ever!!
Dr. Jong and her skilled, experienced staff always give friendly and personal attention to this patient. My eyes have been in her care since 1985 and its has been very good care. I believe the Center has all the latest examination and diagnostic equipment. My annual visit with Dr. Jong and her staff is a great confidence builder.
The most caring people you will ever meet. It is an awesome feeling to have someone who understands what your child is struggling with and actually has a solution to your problem. I recommend anyone that has a child with a learning disorder to schedule an evaluation. You will be amazed!
It's been years since my last exam. Dr. Jong was friendly, informative and thorough throughout the exam. The staff at Advanced Eye Center were polite and caring. There was no waiting time and I was out of the office with a new prescription within 30 minutes of arriving.
