Dr. Ming Wang, a Harvard and MIT graduate (MD, magna cum laude) and one of the few cataract and LASIK surgeons in the world today who holds a doctorate degree in laser physics, will present a talk entitled “Appreciating Freedom in America – living through China’s Cultural Holocaust”.
Dr. Wang is the only surgeon in the state who performs 3D LASIK (ages 18-60), 3D Forever Young Lens surgery (ages 40-65) and 3D laser cataract surgery (ages 60+). He has performed over 55,000 procedures, including on over 4,000 doctors. Dr. Wang has published 6 textbooks and a paper in the world-renowned journal "Nature", holds several U.S. patents, and founded the Wang Foundation for Christian Outreach to China and the Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, which has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.
Growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution, Ming--a teenager at that time--faced the devastating fate of being deported by the Communist government to the poorest parts of China where he, along with millions of other Chinese youth, would be condemned to a life of poverty and hard labor. Ming learned to play the Chinese er-hu violin as a way to avoid deportation. A chance meeting with a visiting American professor helped Ming come to America, so in 1982 with $50 and a Chinese-English dictionary in his pocket, he arrived here in the U.S.
Having suffered through and survived China’s Cultural Holocaust, Dr. Wang is deeply troubled by the direction towards dead-end socialism that America is heading today. Because he has “been there, done that,” and knows that socialism does not work. He will talk about his “Great American question,” namely, why was the idea of freedom able to take root in America over two hundred years ago, yet was not able to take root in many parts of the world even in the 21st century today? Dr. Wang will share his feelings on the importance of protecting our freedom!
At the end of the talk, Dr. Wang will play a few songs on his er-hu--the instrument that he played during China’s Cultural Holocaust--with Carlos Enrique on classical guitar.
