About Dr. Ming Wang, MD, PhD:
Dr. Wang is a Harvard and MIT graduate (MD, magna cum laude) and one of the few cataract and
LASIK eye surgeons in the world today who holds a doctorate degree in laser physics.
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, where against all odds he would earn a PhD in laser physics and graduate
magna cum laude with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and
MIT. He embraced the Christian faith and tackled one of the most important
questions of our time – are faith and science friends or foes? – which led to his
invention of a breakthrough biotechnology to restore sight.
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, 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 Association of Chinese American Physicians. Dr. Wang is currently the only surgeon
in the state who performs 3D SMILE & 3D LASIK (18+), 3D Implantable Contact Lens (21+),
3D Forever Young Lens (45+) and 3D Laser Cataract Surgery (60+). Dr. Wang established a nonprofit
foundation which provides sight restoration surgeries for indigent patients who otherwise
would never have the opportunity to receive them free-of-charge.
Dr. Wang was named the Nashvillian of the Year by Kiwanis Club of Nashville. He is the CEO of
Aier-USA which brings in investments from China to create American jobs. He is the president
of the Tennessee Chinese Chamber of Commerce and co-founder of the Tennessee Immigrant
and Minority Business Group. The mission of the chamber is to help Tennessee businesses learn
about China and increase their export to China.
