From Darkness to Sight chronicles the remarkable life journey of

Dr. Ming Wang, a world-renowned laser eye surgeon, philanthropist

and Kiwanis Nashvillian of the Year. It demonstrates how focus,

determination, humility and profound faith can inspire a life that, in

turn, impacts that of countless others.

As a teenager, Ming Wang 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 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.

“Dr. Wang is not only a dear friend and the very best eye surgeon; he is

also one of the greatest people I have ever known.” —Dolly Parton

“I have known Dr. Wang for nearly two decades; he is a respected eye

surgeon and friend. What Ming has done with his life since arriving here

in the United States as a penniless student over 30 years ago exemplifi es

the true essence of the American dream, and the freedom that we enjoy

in this great country. I highly recommend his autobiography, From Darkness

to Sight.”

—Senator William H. Frist, MD, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader

“If I didn’t know Ming, it would be hard to believe the story of his life.

But I do know him, and his life truly is a remarkable story of faith, persistence,

and excellence.” —Bill Haslam, Tennessee Governor
