Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 12, 2008
Trusted LASIK Surgeons announced today that David Huang, M.D., PhD has joined the Trusted LASIK Surgeons Directory, an online consumer resource for people looking to improve their vision. Dr. Huang's LASIK Eye Surgery practice at the Doheny Laser Vision Center serves the greater Los Angeles area, including the Downtown and East Los Angeles, Glendale, Pasadena, and San Gabriel communities.
The Trusted LASIK Surgeons directory seeks to provide consumers with those LASIK Eye surgeons who are among the best in the United States. To achieve this, Trusted LASIK Surgeons screens each surgeon based on experience, premier patient care, and professional credentials. Doctor Huang's brilliant credentials put him among the top 1% of LASIK and refractive surgeons in the United States.
Of the many qualifications that distinguish Dr. Huang from most other LASIK eye surgeons, his extensive research, teaching and inventions stand out. He has served as an investigator for 2 FDA studies concerning LASIK and other refractive surgery procedures and as the principal investigator in 4 National Institute of Health research grants. The University of Southern California has entrusted Dr. Huang to serve in several capacities. He is an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Biomedical Engineering at Keck Medical School, holds the Manger Chair of Corneal Laser Surgery and serves as the Medical Director of the Doheny Laser Vision Center. He is also an attending physician for cornea service at the Doheny Eye Institute. Dr. Huang is the inventor of 9 patents with an additional 6 patents-pending. During the course of obtaining his PhD, Dr. Huang co-invented optical coherence tomography (OCT), a high-resolution cross-sectional imaging technology that is now indispensable in the diagnosis of eye diseases. His PhD research also included development of femtosecond lasers, which are now widely used in corneal and refractive surgery procedures such as LASIK and corneal transplantation. Dr. Huang is one of a very few doctors in the world with deep understanding of laser eye surgery from both a clinical and engineering perspective, and has the expertise to help people with corneal diseases who are seeking to improve their vision.
Dr. Huang has also published 2 textbooks, 13 textbook chapters, and over 60 articles for major peer-reviewed eye journals. In addition, he has given hundreds of presentations and lectures at major eye meetings. Just at the annual meetings of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, this leading pioneer in refractive surgery has taught 19 courses to fellow surgeons. His substantial contributions in the field of refractive surgery, particularly in connection with lasers used for eye surgery, have earned him the respect of his colleagues worldwide.
With over 10 years of experience in laser vision surgery and other refractive surgery procedures such as lens implants, Dr. Huang has the proven expertise to provide patients with the best recommendations and treatment for their particular vision problems. Thousands of patients with nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), astigmatism (blurred vision), and presbyopia have been treated by Dr. Huang. Dr. Huang's practice at the Doheny Laser Vision Center provides the highest standards of care and uses the latest equipment, including the Intralase system for "All-Laser" or "Bladeless" LASIK, Wavefront Based ("Custom") LASIK and PRK, as well as iLASIK, which includes WaveScan Technology, IntraLase, and Visx Advanced CustomVue technologies. At the Doheny Laser Vision Center, patients are afforded complete refractive eye care, including LASIK, PRK, lens implants, phakic implants, limbal relaxing incisions, and cataract lens implants procedures. Other eye doctors have trusted Dr. Huang to perform the appropriate refractive procedure for them. Patients who have endured problems from a LASIK or refractive surgery procedure performed by another doctor have come to him for management and treatment.
Certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology, Dr. Huang is a member of several professional organizations, including the American Academy of Ophthalmology, who has awarded him an Achievement Award, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the International Society for Imaging in the Eye, which he helped found. Locally, Dr. Huang is a member of the Los Angeles Society of Ophthalmology and the Max Fine Cornea Association. His peers have also voted him one of the Top Doctors of the San Gabriel Valley (Pasadena Magazine) and Best Doctors in America.
"I have known Dr. Huang since he was a resident at USC and he is an exceptionally well qualified LASIK surgeon who truly understands the physiology of the surgery because of his engineering background and because he had LASIK himself while he was a fellow with Dr. Waring and Dr. Thompson at Emory," commented James J. Salz, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Trusted LASIK Surgeons. "He was involved in the development of the Visante OCT which is a very important instrument in refractive surgery which accurately measures corneal flap thickness in LASIK and the position of the implants in Phakic Lens surgery."
"I am honored to be listed by TrustedLASIKSurgeons.com," said David Huang, M.D., Director of Doheny Laser Vision Center and Associate Professor of Ophthalmology of University of Southern California. "As someone who is often consulted on refractive surgery complications, I know that it is very important for patients to find knowledgeable and meticulous surgeons. TrustedLASIKSurgeons.com is providing an important service by its selective emphasis on quality of care."
