Dr. Ming Wang, a Harvard and MIT graduate (MD, magna cum laude) and one of the few cataract and LASIK surgeons in the world today who holds a doctorate degree in laser physics, will present a talk entitled “Appreciating Freedom in America – living through China’s Cultural Holocaust, and pearls of doing business with China”.
Dr. Wang is the only surgeon in the state who performs 3D LASIK (ages 18-60), 3D Forever Young Lens surgery (ages 40-65) and 3D laser cataract surgery (ages 60+). He has performed over 55,000 procedures, including on over 4,000 doctors. Dr. Wang has published 6 textbooks and a paper in the world-renowned journal "Nature", holds several U.S. patents, and founded the Wang Foundation for Christian Outreach to China and the Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, which has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.
Growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution, Ming--a teenager at that time--faced the devastating fate of being deported by the Communist government to the poorest parts of China where he, along with millions of other Chinese youth, would be condemned to a life of poverty and hard labor. Ming learned to play the Chinese er-hu violin as a way to avoid deportation. A chance meeting with a visiting American professor helped Ming come to America, so in 1982 with $50 and a Chinese-English dictionary in his pocket, he arrived here in the U.S.
Describing his 16-year journey with faith and science, Dr. Wang will tell the powerful story of the amniotic membrane contact lens, a breakthrough biomedical technology to help restore sight that he has invented. He will describe how he began wound-healing research to help injured adult eyes, and how he was frustrated at not being able to find a way to conduct fetal research without harming an unborn child. The questions in his heart were “Are science and faith really this contradictory? Should we do fetal wound-healing research without our moral, ethical and faith principles? Or, should we just not do this research at all then, and therefore not being able to advance medicine and improve the quality of our lives?”
Dr. Wang will talk about his current China Bible project, which has the potential to help recruit for God’s kingdom quarter of human race. He will also talk about pearls and perils of doing business with China. Dr. Wang will describe China's feudalistic past, why the “giant” had been sleeping and how it was awoken, and what inherent cultural attributes of the Chinese people predicted the economic success of the 21st century. Dr. Wang is the president of Tennessee Chinese Chamber of Commerce and international president of Shanghai Aier Eye Hospital, the largest private eye hospital group in China today which holds 10% of China’s eyecare market. Dr. Wang will share the pearls and perils of doing business with China today.
This is a unique and powerful talk about growing up in poverty and deprivation, about working hard and appreciating freedom and opportunity here in America, about persistence and patience and believing that God will ultimately show us the way, and about how to capitalize the tremendous business opportunity in China today.
At the end of the talk, Dr. Wang will play a few songs on his er-hu--the instrument that he played during China’s Cultural Holocaust--with Carlos Enrique on classical guitar.
