Omega Ophthalmics LLC (Omega) has announced today that Daniel Chang, MD has joined their Medical Advisory Board, effective immediately.
Daniel H. Chang, M.D. is a board-certified ophthalmologist who practices in Bakersfield, California. Dr. Chang graduated with honors from the California Institute of Technology. He then received his medical and ophthalmology training from two of the most prestigious programs in the Southeast: Duke University, where he performed groundbreaking laser vision correction research; and Emory University, where he earned the title of Chief Resident in Ophthalmology. Dr. Chang so distinguished himself at these two programs that he became the only surgeon in the country invited to the most prestigious cornea and refractive surgery fellowship at Minnesota Eye Consultants.
Regarding the addition of Dr. Chang to the Medical Advisory Board, Dr. Gary Wörtz, Omega’s Chief Medical Officer stated, “Daniel is one of the brightest minds in all of ophthalmology. From his understanding of optics and IOL designs to his practical wisdom of real world solutions, Daniel is one of the most sought after key opinion leaders in the country. We are very fortunate have him on our team.”
Dr. Chang has authored numerous articles and publications on refractive surgery and advanced intraocular lenses. He regularly lectures at eye meetings from the local through the international level; and he trains and advises other surgeons and physicians on laser vision correction. He has performed thousands of successful LASIK, PRK, cataract, and corneal transplant procedures. Dr. Chang practiced as a refractive surgeon and corneal specialist in Phoenix, AZ for two years before responding to his brother’s invitation to relocate to Bakersfield and bring world-class refractive surgery to his own home town in 2008.
Dr. Chang is a volunteer surgeon and a founding member on the board of directors for Advanced Center for Eyecare, a non-profit clinic that provides medical and surgical eyecare to the uninsured and underinsured people of Kern County.
