About Dr. Ming Wang: As a teenager, Ming fought valiantly to escape one of history’s darkest eras – China’s Cultural Revolution – during which millions of innocent youth were deported to remote areas to face a life sentence of poverty and hard labor. Through his own tenacity and his parents’ tireless efforts to provide a chance of freedom for their son, Ming eventually made his way to America with $50 in his pocket and an American dream in his heart. Against all odds, he earned a PhD in laser physics and graduated magna cum laude with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT. To date, Dr. Wang has performed over 55,000 eye procedures and has treated patients from nearly every state in the U.S. and from over 55 countries worldwide. He is considered the “doctor’s doctor,” as he has operated on over 4,000 physicians. Dr. Wang has published 9 textbooks and a paper in the world-renowned journal “Nature”, holds several U.S. patents, including the world’s first amniotic membrane contact lens, and performed the world’s first laser artificial cornea implantation. He is the recipient of the Honor Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the American Chinese Physicians Association. Dr. Wang is currently the only surgeon in the state who performs 3D SMILE® and 3D LASIK (18+), 3D Implantable Contact Lens (21+), 3D Forever Young Lens surgery (45+), and 3D laser cataract surgery (60+). Dr. Wang established a non-profit foundation which provides sight restoration surgeries free-of-charge for indigent patients who otherwise would never have the opportunity to receive them.
