About this product
- DescriptionThis book represents the first state-of-the-art comprehensive synthesis of the current understanding of the etiology, prevention, diagsis and treatment of both keratoconus and keratoectasia.
- Author BiographyMing Wang, MD, PhD is a clinical associate professor of ophthalmology of the University of Tennessee, co-owner and international president of Shanghai Aier Eye Hospital, attending surgeon at Saint Thomas Hospital, and director of Wang Vision Institute in Nashville, Tennessee. Dr. Wang received his BS from the University of Science and Technology of China in Hefei, China; his PhD in laser spectroscopy and atomic collision dynamics from the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland; his postdoctoral fellowship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston, Massachusetts; and his MD from Harvard Medical School and MIT in Boston, Massachusetts. He graduated magna cum laude, received the best graduation thesis award, and the Harold Lamport Biomedical Research Prize from Harvard and MIT. After completing both a residency in ophthalmology and a fellowship in ocular genetics and molecular biology at the Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he completed a clinical fellowship in cornea, external disease and refractive surgery from the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute at the University of Miami School of Medicine in Miami, Florida. In 1997, he became the founding director of the Vanderbilt Laser Sight Center and a full-time faculty member of the Department of Ophthalmology at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee. He remained there until 2002, when he went into private practice and established the Wang Vision Institute and Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration. Dr. Wang started his research career as a laser physicist and physical chemist. From 1982 to 1987, as its first author, he published a dozen original papers in the leading physics journal, Physical Review A, describing the development of a novel experimental atomic physics technique that he developed with Professor John Weiner, a Doppler velocity-selected associative ionization process between sodium atoms. In 1987, Dr. Wang enrolled in Harvard Medical School and MIT, where he conducted molecular biology research and published a paper in the world-renowned journal Nature, in which he described a novel molecular biology technique--a whole-genome approach to in vivo DAN-protein interaction and gene-expression regulation--that he invented with Professor George Church. In 1991, after completing his MD, he began research in the field of ophthalmology, specifically ophthalmic genetics and corneal wound healing, at Wills Eye Hospital and Bascom Palmer Eye Institute. Dr. Wang made an original contribution to the field of corneal wound healing by co-publishing with Professor Scheffer Tseng the first paper of its kind regarding laboratory success of the reduction of corneal scarring and keratocyte apoptosis with amniotic membrane transplantation. Dr. Wang is an inventor of several US patented technologies, including an amniotic membrane contact lens, of which he successfully created the first prototype. He was a former panel consultant of the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Ophthalmic Device Panel, and was a primary FDA reviewer for the first US FDA LASIK PMA approval in 1999. Dr. Wang conducted the first large-scale clinical study and was the principal investigator of the first three-dimensional stereo corneal topographer, the AstraMax. He was the first surgeon from the United States to study a new, high frequency excimer laser and treatment platform designed to treat post-LASIK complications. Dr. Wang performed the first femtosecond laser-assisted artificial cornea implantation. He was also a LASIK surgeon for ABC's national reality TV show, Extreme Makeover. Dr. Wang received an honored award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology in 2003. He was a co-principal investigator of an NIH RO1 grant, a recipient of Fight For Sight Grant-in-aid, Lawrence Award of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO), and Faculty Investigator Award of Vanderbilt University. He has edited several books, i
