I am a board-certified ophthalmologist in Rockville and have practiced in Rockville since I founded Washington Eye Consultants in 1992. I specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and surgical correction of eye diseases. I have an unwavering devotion to patient care and have developed a world-class practice known for excellence in the treatment of eye diseases. Our mission is to enhance the quality of our patients' lives by compassionately providing the highest level of eye care.
Since 2004, I have been the Medical Director of Palisades Eye Surgery Center, the premier eye surgery center in the Washington metropolitan area.
I belong to the American Academy of Ophthalmology and am a member of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. I am one of the first eye surgeons in Washington to perform laser assisted (femtosecond) cataract surgery (2011).
I grew up in Silver Spring MD and attended John F. Kennedy High School. I majored in Biology and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Pennsylvania, and graduated medical school from New York University. I love competitive tennis and am an active member of the Chinese Bible Church of Maryland.
I am fluent in Chinese and English.
