Meet John Fang for Corneal Transplant

Dr. Fang is a specialist in the treatment of the cornea and anterior segment and is a refractive surgeon.  While in college studying biomedical and chemical engineering, he envisioned a career as a research scientist.  After getting his bachelor’s degree, however, he realized he wanted a more personal way of interacting with people, and he chose to attend medical school.

Having worn glasses all his life and seeing family members deal with their own vision issues, he became very interested in treating and correcting vision and decided to specialize in ophthalmology.  With a desire to help improve people’s quality of life through improved vision, Dr. Fang became an ophthalmologist.

Board-certified since 2008, Dr. Fang specializes in medical and surgical treatment of diseases affecting the cornea of the eye, cataract and intraocular lens implant surgery, and refractive laser surgery such as LASIK and PRK. He also has a particular interest in cornea transplantation, ocular surface disorders, dry eye syndrome, contact lens intolerance, and surgical correction of myopia, hyperopia, and regular and irregular astigmatism. He holds expertise in offering corneal transplant treatment.

Dr. Fang is a member of American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS).  Prior to moving to California, Dr. Fang was an attending ophthalmologist at the Dean McGee Eye Institute, the Department of Ophthalmology for the University of Oklahoma, where he helped educate and train new residents and fellows.  He has published articles in medical and ophthalmology journals on topics related to his specialties.  He has also served in charitable organizations, most recently as a board member for the Marie Detty Youth and Family Center in Oklahoma.

For Dr. Fang, one of the most satisfying aspects of his job as an ophthalmologist is helping his patients find good solutions for their vision problems and helping them to see clearly again.
