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 50+) 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.
