About Dr. Ng Dr. Ng was born and raised in Torrance. He received his Bachelor of Science degree from UC Irvine and his Doctorate from the Southern College of Optometry, in Memphis, Tennessee. Dr. Ng has spent most of his career involved in advanced vision corrective procedures, both surgical and non-surgical. He is also skilled at contact lens fittings for diseased or irregular shaped eyes, such as Keratoconus. Being a leader and lecturer in his profession for "surgical" vision corrective procedures, he felt a particular passion for an alternative "non-surgical" option for vision correction known as Orthokeratology (Ortho K), or Corneal Refractive Therapy (CRT) for those not ready for surgery or not a good candidate for surgery. This treatment that Dr. Ng specializes in is best known for its ability to halt or stablize declining vision problems especially in children. Dr. Ng also treats and manages various medical eye conditions, and is credentialed on numerous vision and medical insurance panels, including VSP, EyeMed, MES, Blue Cross, Blue Shield, Aetna, and THIPA, the Torrance Hospital IPA. Dr. Ng had left private practice in 1995 after being recruited by many industry leaders including UCLA's Jules Stein Eye Institute, where he served as a clinical staff doctor and Southern California College of Optometry's - OCLA, where he is still currently an On-Call staff doctor assisting and training Optometry Students. Dr. Ng was later recruited by world-renowned eye surgeon, Dr. Robert Maloney, of the Maloney Vision Institute who was the exclusive eye surgeon for the original "Extreme Makeover" TV series which Dr. Ng assisted. Dr. Ng has lectured on various surgical subject matters, including LASIK, PRK, CK, Intacs, Verisys IOL, Visian ICL, and Cataract Surgery utilizing some of the latest IOL's such as the Crystalens, ReStor, and ReZoom multifocal IOL. He has participated in numerous FDA studies which have led to the introduction of some of today's newest surgical procedures to improve vision, such as CK and the Verisys IOL. Subsequently, Dr. Ng managed one of the largest refractive surgical practices in Phoenix, Arizona, but decided to return to California to re-enter private practice whereby he joined and later purchased Dr. Shapiro's practice. Dr. Ng is an active member of the COA, AOA, Academy of Orthokeratology, South Bay Optometric Society, and Torrance Chamber of Commerce. In the past, he served in the local South Bay Rotary Club and South Bay Optometric Society as a past board member. He and his wife volunteer at their daughters school during their free time.
