Dr. Ming Wang is in-studio to share his inspiring testimony, his love for Jesus, and how science supports our faith in Him! Dr. Wang has written about his remarkable life in the book From Darkness to Sight. The book has inspired an upcoming movie called Sight.
Dr. Wang grew up in China in the 1960’s. He played the Chinese violin (erhu) and learned to dance in order to escape a life in labor camps as many innocent children were being deported to a life of poverty during these times. He eventually made his way to America with only $50.00. He then graduated with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT.
Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude), PhD (laser physics), is a world-class cataract and LASIK eye surgeon, philanthropist, and community activist.

He has published over 100 papers, including one in the world-renowned journal Nature, as well as 10 ophthalmic textbooks.
The Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, a 501c(3) non-profit charity founded by Dr. Wang, has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries worldwide, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free of charge. As a co-founder of another 501c(3) non-profit organization, the Common Ground Network, Dr. Wang is dedicated to helping people find common ground and solutions to problems in order to achieve more success and happiness.
