Dr. Ming Wang, philanthropist and Nashvillian of the Year by Kiwanis International, is a Harvard and MIT graduate (MD, magna cum laude) and one of the few cataract and LASIK eye surgeons in the world today who holds a doctorate degree in laser physics. He has performed over 55,000 procedures, including on over 4,000 doctors, so he has been called “The doctors’ doctor”.
Grew up in China, Ming came to this country with only $50. Today, he is a world-class eye surgeon and is the ONLY surgeon in the state who performs 3D SMILE & 3D LASIK (18+), 3D Karma & 3D Raindrop (45+), 3D Forever Young Lens (50+) and 3D Laser Cataract Surgery (60+).
Dr. Wang is the CEO of Aier-USA, a new U.S. – China healthcare venture that brings in investment from China and creates American jobs.
Dr. Wang has published 8 textbooks, holds several U.S. patents, published over papers and chapters including a paper in the journal “Nature”, and performed the world’s first laser artificial cornea implantation. He founded two 501c(3) non-profit organizations, Wang Foundation for Christian Outreach to China and Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, which to date has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.
Make it easy for others to help you
If you need help with your project, you need to first accomplish it as much as you can yourself. Don’t be lazy. If the person from whom you need help sees that you truly care about your own project and have indeed done as much of it as you can, before you ask for help, he/she will then be more willing to assist you. Furthermore, the more that you have actually done yourself prior to asking for help, the less he/she will actually end up having to do, and thus the easier it will be for him/her to do it for you.
