Expert Optometrist: Dr. Bing L. Rong
Interview with Dr. Rong
I was growing up in Beijing and my parents always wanted me to become a medical doctor. I studied hard and was accepted into Beijing Medical School. I had excellent training as an eye surgeon as well as a researcher on dry eye and infectious eye diseases.
I came to Boston as a visiting scholar at the Schepens Eye Research institute, which affiliated to the Harvard Medical School. After several years research and multiple publications at peer reviewed Journals at Harvard, l was promoted to faculty positions, as Assistant Scientist at Schepens Eye Research Institute; as Instructor at Department of Ophthalmology, Harvard Medical School. The academics was very awarding but time consuming and funding for research was a constant concern. l always like working with patients and devote full time to providing clinical eye care. I decided to become an optometrist. l was accepted to the New England College of Optometry.
I started out working at Lenscrafters. After ten years i wanted to start my own practice. I wanted to have complete control over the quality and style of the patient care, and to be my own boss, of course. Now, I can offer complete eye care, including designer frames and contacts, in addition to excellence on the medical aspects. I love the freedom and independence of running my own eye care clinic, even though it’s a lot more logistics to manage.
I love my patients. Some of them have been with me more than 10 years. They’re like my family, and they give me the honor to treat multiple generations. Taking care of people’s vision is very rewarding, is also exciting. Some days it‘s helping someone with an eye emergency,another day it could be diagnosing and treating a rare eye condition. Very often you will be so happy to see a big smile with beautiful glasses on my patients. Everyday is different, never be boring.
