Dr. Ming Wang (MD, PHD)

Dr. Ming Wang graduated from Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MD, magna cum laude) in Boston, Massachusetts, holds a doctorate degree in laser spectroscopy, and completed his residency at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, PA and his corneal and refractive surgery fellowship at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, Miami, FL. He is an editorial board member of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Today and Refractive EyeCare.

A former panel consultant to the US FDA Ophthalmic Device Panel and a founding director of Vanderbilt Laser Sight Center, Dr. Wang published a paper in the world-renowned journal “Nature”, as well as seven ophthalmic textbooks (Corneal Topography in the Wavefront Era, Irregular Astigmatism – Diagnosis and Treatment, Corneal Dystrophy and Degeneration – a Molecular Genetic Approach,Keratoconus and Keratoectasia – Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment, Corneal Topography in the Wavefront Era – 2nd edition), Atlas and Clinical Reference Guide for Corneal Topography.Additionally, he has published over 120 papers (mostly in peer-reviewed scientific journals) and book chapters.

Dr. Wang introduced 3D bladeless all-laser LASIK (age 18+), 3D Forever Young Lens surgery (age 40+) and 3D laser cataract surgery (age 60+) to the state and is the only surgeon in Tennessee that performs these 3D laser vision procedures. He holds several US patents for his inventions of new biotechnologies to restore sight, including an amniotic membrane contact lens, an adaptive infrared retinoscopic device for detecting ocular aberrations, a digital eye bank for virtual clinical trials, phacoballoon technology and phaco-free all-laser cataract surgery technology. He is currently one of few investigators in the U.S. conducting an FDA-regulated clinical trial to treat age-related loss of near vision (presbyopia). He introduced the femtosecond laser to China, and performed China’s first LASIK procedure using this laser in 2005. He also performed the world’s first femtosecond laser-assisted artificial cornea implantation (Alphacor), and the United States’ first Intacs procedure using a new version of Intacs for treating keratoconus.

Dr. Wang was a recipient of the Academy of Ophthalmology Honor Award and Lifetime Achievement Award of Association of Chinese American Physicians.

As the founding president of the Tennessee Chinese Chamber of Commerce, and co-owner and international president of Shanghai Aier Eye Hospitals in Shanghai, China, which is the largest private eye hospital group in China today with 50 locations, Dr. Wang founded a 501c(3) non-profit organization called the Wang Foundation for Christian Outreach to China.

Dr. Wang founded another 501c(3) non-profit charity, the Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, which has also helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries worldwide with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.

Dr. Wang is a champion amateur ballroom dancer, and a former finalist in the world ballroom dance championships in the open pro-am international 10 dance. He plays the Chinese violin (er-hu) and accompanied country music legend, Dolly Parton, on her CD “Those Were the Days”. Dr. Wang organized an annual classical ballroom dance sight charity event, the EyeBall, which is now in its 8th year, and has drawn attendees from all over the U.S. and around the world.
