Director, Ophthalmologist and Retinal Specialist

Dr. Jun Huang founded Quality Eye Center in 2003. From 2006, he also worked in Atlantic Cumberland Eye Associates, previously directed by Dr. Theodore Buckner and then Dr. Paul Remer. In 2008, Dr. Huang transformed Atlantic Cumberland Eye Associates into Quality Eye Associates and became the director.

Dr. Huang attended Sun Yat-Sen University of Medical Sciences in Guangzhou, China from 1978 to 1983. His Residency in Ophthalmology was completed by 1986 at the Zhongshan Ophthalmic Center of the University. He received his PhD on Retina research in 1990 from the Institute of Ophthalmology of the University of London, England. He then carried out a Research Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. He completed his second Residency in Ophthalmology in 1999 from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of NJ in Newark, NJ, followed by a Fellowship in Retina in 2000 from Indiana University.

Dr. Huang is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist and Retina Specialist, with affiliation at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, Shore Medical Center, AtlantiCare Surgical Center and Jersey Shore Surgical Center.

Treating a broad spectrum of patients, Dr. Huang cares mostly for people with retinal diseases, such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and other retinal diseases. With more than 20 years of experience in Ophthalmology, Dr. Huang also takes care of most of other eye diseases.

She is a diplomat of the American Board of Optometry..

During Dr. Mullen’s optometric training, she completed clinical internships at the Veterans Hospital in Lyons, New Jersey, as well as at Omni Eye Services in New Jersey and New York. Dr. Mullen continued her post-graduate training by completing an ocular disease and refractive eyecare residency at Omni Eye Services.

She has extensive experience in the care of pre-and post-operative patients, as well as those with varying degrees of ocular disease. She has also actively trained and supervised fourth year optometric interns and residents during her time in practice.

She recently moved to southern New Jersey with her husband and two young children. She loves spending time with her family, outdoor activities, and is an avid reader (most recently of children’s books).
