Ongoing education is crucial for all medical professionals, as new technologies and techniques are made available to treat patients in more effective ways. At Kung Eye Center, our surgeons are leaders in the field of ophthalmology and frequently speak or instruct other eye care professionals through various events and conferences.
Dr. Kung is an international lecturer on cataract surgery, other eye surgery procedures, and eye diseases. He frequently lectures or instructs in wet labs at the nationally recognized meeting “Cataract Surgery: Telling it Like it Is,” founded by Robert Osher, MD. This annual meeting brings together the most experienced surgeons to share cutting edge and off-label procedures that can help restore patients’ vision and eye health. Through the meeting, doctors like Dr. Kung can share information freely about new procedures that they believe in and find beneficial for both patients and surgeons. The annual meeting has been held in Florida since 2010.
In addition to the “Cataract Surgery: Telling it Like it Is” meeting, Dr. Kung has published many articles on eye disease and surgical techniques and lectured nationally and internationally at various conferences and events. As a leader in his field, Dr. Kung is regularly chosen to educate other ophthalmologists across the country in cataract surgery.
Kung Eye Center frequently hosts continuing education events to instruct local eye care professionals or visiting ophthalmologists about advances in laser cataract surgery, premium lens implants, and diagnostics. Dr. Kung and Dr. Yu also offer education on glaucoma advancements such as minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) or laser vision correction.
Dr. Kung was fellowship trained in cornea and retina diseases and frequently hosts educational events regarding corneal diseases like keratoconus or Fuchs’ dystrophy as well as treatment options like corneal cross-linking, PK, DSAEK, and DMEK.
