The Hong Kong Ophthalmic Associates was formed in 1997. It has a fine heritage.
Dr. Victor C.P. Woo first established his private ophthalmic practice in Prince Edward, Kowloon in 1974.
Dr. Patrick P.C. Tong joined as a partner in 1980 and their clinic was known as Drs. Woo, Tong & Partners. They had clinics at Prince Edward and Wan Chai.
Dr. William K.Y. Leung had started his own private ophthalmic practice in Prince Edward and Central in 1982 as well.
In 1993, these three doctors came up with a vision - they would merge and recruit more ophthalmologists to set up a technologically advanced and comprehensive private eye care centre providing quality service in Hong Kong. It was then called Drs. Woo, Tong, Leung & Partners. The Wan Chai Clinic was relocated to Central Building in Central, Soon, Drs. S.H. Cheung, C.Y. Shiu , Donald C.F. Woo , Jean Paul Yih, Charmaine Hon, Jonathan M.K. Tsang, Carol Yu , Nancy S.Y. Yuen and Douglas K.T.Lam joined.
These Fellows of the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine renamed the clinic as the Hong Kong Ophthalmic Associates in 1997.
In 2005 the Hong Kong clinic moved to New World Tower with a floor area of 5000sq ft. and next year the Kowloon clinic moved to a more spacious clinic of 6000sq ft. at Hang Seng Mongkok Building.
