About Dr. Ming Wang, MD, PhD:
FromDarkness to Sight chronicles the remarkable life journey
of Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude);
PhD (laser physics), a world-renowned laser eye surgeon, a
philanthropist, and Kiwanis Nashvillian of the Year.
As a teenager, Ming played the Chinese violin erhu 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. He eventually made his way to America with $50 in
his pocket, where against all odds, he earned a PhD in laser
physics and graduated with the highest honors from Harvard
Medical School and MIT.
To date, Dr. Wang has performed over 55,000 procedures
including on over 4,000 physicians. He has published 9
textbooks, holds several U.S. patents, and performed the
world’s first laser artificial cornea implantation. Drs. Ming
Wang and Joshua Frenkel are currently the only two surgeons
in the state who perform 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 non-profit charity, which to date has helped
patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries with
all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.
