I recently moved to AZ from California. I lost my hard contact lens, and after inquiring who to go to for help, was referred to Dr Gong at Accent Eye Care from my eye doctor in Avondale. From the initial visit, I was impressed with their state-of-the-art equipment. With it, and Dr. Gong’s expertise, my new contact lens was fitted perfectly, which is not an easy task. I highly recommend Accent Eye Care and Dr. Aleta Gong.

From Dr Gong:
I want to thank Jason Schechterle for his service to our community (Air Force and Retired Phoenix Policeman) and for his endearing compassion for people. Over the years, Jason and his family have been a pleasure to work with. This close knit family proves to us how one can have the will to overcome tragedy and adversity with grace, love, and generosity. Thank you for being a hero and inspiration to us! See Jason’s incredible story of survival..
In 2015, I was referred to Dr. Gong by my retina specialist and corneal specialist for contact lens fit. Prior to that time, due to my injuries (burns to 40 % of my body), it had been difficult to find contacts that provided me with good clarity and comfort. Dr. Gong was always able to work her magic, and with a comprehensive exam, her extensive knowledge and compassionate treatment, I was fit with custom designed contacts that allowed me to retain good vision.
Just prior to this years’ annual exam however, my vision seemed to make a drastic turn for the worse. I was not able to read from my computer and had developed a few physical symptoms with my eyes. I went to the exam feeling dejected, feeling that my vision was deteriorating, and independence at risk. Dr. Gong must have felt my mood upon entering the room as she immediately inquired how things were going.
After listening to my list of concerns and completing her examination, Dr. Gong made the decision to change everything; type of contacts, cleaning solution, eye rinse, and artificial tears. She provided me with trials of the new contacts to work in conjunction with my custom rigid lenses, and I immediately felt a sense of relief and joy. I had clear, crisp vision and no pain!
I have used the trial contacts and recommended solutions now for a week and my eyes feel brand new! The contact lenses not only provide excellent clarity but are also comfortable and make my eyes feel protected. Any physical symptoms I previously experienced are all but gone.
Dr. Gong and her staff are an amazing group, each with a passion for providing the best service. I go to a lot of Dr’s., and there is no other office like this one. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Gong and am always happy to refer to her.

I was referred to Dr. Gong by my corneal specialist. Dr. Gong and staff pulled off a miracle for me. I am seeing better than I have in years. I never thought I would see 20/20 again in my life. They are all kind, professional, and care so much about my vision.

I moved to Arizona in 2003 and because of a preexisting eye condition, I found an eye doctor right away. I was a difficult patient and the doctor struggled to correct my vision. It was obvious that nothing was working and he suggested I see Doctor Gong, stating that she worked wonders on other patients he referred to her. Well, I’ve got to tell you, he was right. Dr. Gong did a lot more than work wonders, she worked miracles; she corrected my vision between 20/20 and 20/30.
Like many people I took my eyes and my vision for granted, and it was not until I lost my sight that I realized how important seeing is. I’ve been a patient of Doctor Gong’s ever since 2003, and I cannot imagine going anywhere else. The staff is well trained and professional, always cheerful and friendly; they answer all of my questions, and work with me every step of the way, even working me in to see Doctor Gong after losing a contact lens that saved my day, because without it I cannot see much of anything.
I was referred by Doctor Gross and I would like him to know that what he said about Dr. Gong working wonders was true, and thank you for sending me to see her as it has proved to be a truly remarkable experience for me.
I have an eye condition that needs rigid gas permeable lenses to correct vision better than glasses would. I started wearing contacts about 6 weeks ago. I could just pass the driving exam with glasses. After wearing the contacts, it has been like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders. I can finally see signs without asking my wife. I can help my daughter do hidden searches and read stories to her. I am motivated to finish projects I started years ago. Dr. Gong and her staff made my wife and I feel like family. Dr. Gong worked diligently to get the fit right. Contacts have changed my life so much, I wish I had made the decision to wear contacts 5 years ago. I drive in from Kingman, which is over 4 hours away, and it’s definitely worth the drive.
I was referred by my corneal specialist and would like him to know that this is the best referral I’ve ever received. Thank you. Since I began wearing contacts, I have noticed the following: Increased awareness of my environment, awareness of depth, improved speed of reading and comprehension, interested in reading, interested in trying new things, happier in general, and have more interest in my hobbies. I find that I am learning new skills more easily, have improved driving skills, improved self-direction, and I am feeling more in control.
I’ve been a contact lens patient of Dr. Gong’s for about 12 years. Earlier (in 1997), I had radial keratotomy (RK) surgery in Phoenix on both eyes and, as with many RK patients, I have had vision problems ever since. Because of the many RK cuts, the surface of the cornea tends to change shape frequently. My vision can no longer be corrected with glasses alone. But, Dr. Gong has been able to correct my vision by fitting me with contact lenses. Because of the irregularities in the surface of my corneas, and the fact that the shape continues to change, I have to be refitted quite often. Dr. Gong continues to do an excellent job of fitting lenses to my ever-changing corneas. She is very patient and willing to work with me until we are both satisfied with the fit. She is always willing to spend as much time as necessary to get the results needed. It is a pleasure to work with someone as skilled and dedicated as she is.
I have been wearing soft contact lenses and eyeglasses for more than 12 years. I was diagnosed with Keratoconus about 10 years ago and since then, I have been struggling with my vision due to my high astigmatism and the many times my vision changes over a months period. I was at the point of having surgery done on my eyes and was set to have my pupil changed so that I could see normal. Thanks to an honest person working at a surgeon doctor’s office, Dr. Gong was recommended to me before I would pursue any surgery. I made my first visit with Dr. Gong and from there after, my whole life changed. Just from her taking extra care to perfect my eyes even though I could only see 20/70 with contacts or glasses. From there she introduced hard contacts and corrected my vision overnight to 20/20 on both eyes. Please, anyone reading this article, have total trust in Dr. Gong and she will direct you the perfect way to your vision.
I, along with my husband and daughter, have been coming to Dr. Gong for 8 years. Dr. Gong is the first doctor to get me to 20/20 or even close to that since I started wearing contacts at age 11, for I am a hard fit because of RK.
