From darkness to sight

The story behind the movie “God’s Not Dead”

Faith and science: friends or foes?

A talk/music by Ming Wang, MD, PhD


Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude); PhD (laser physics) Director, Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration

The movie “God’s Not Dead” featured a character inspired by the real life story of Dr. Ming Wang, a Harvard and MIT graduate (MD, magna cum laude) and one of the few cataract and LASIK surgeons in the world today who holds a doctorate degree in laser physics. Dr. Wang will present a talk entitled, "From darkness to sight: God’s not dead - faith and science: friends or foes?”


As a teenager, Ming fought valiantly to escape one of history’s darkest eras – China’s Cultural Revolution – during which millions of innocent youth were deported to remote areas to face a life sentence of poverty and hard labor. Through his own tenacity and his parents’ tireless efforts to provide a chance of freedom for their son, Ming eventually made his way to America with $50 in his pocket and an American dream in his heart. Against all odds, he would earn a PhD in laser physics and graduate magna cum laude with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT. He embraced his Christian faith and tackled one of the most important questions of our time – Are faith and science friends or foes? This question led him to his invention of a breakthrough biotechnology to restore sight.

To date, Dr. Wang has performed over 55,000 eye procedures and has treated patients from nearly every state in the U.S. and from over 55 countries worldwide. He is considered the “doctor’s doctor,” as he has operated on over 4,000 physicians. Dr. Wang has published 9 textbooks, holds several U.S. patents and performed the world’s first laser artificial cornea implantation. He is currently the only surgeon in the state who performs 3D LASIK & 3D SMILE (age 18+), 3D Forever Young Lens Surgery (age 45+), 3D Laser Kamra (age 45+), and 3D Laser Cataract Surgery (age 60+). Dr. Wang founded a non-profit foundation, Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.

Describing his 16-year journey with faith and science, Dr. Wang will tell the powerful story of the amniotic membrane contact lens. He will describe how he began fetal wound-healing research to help injured adult eyes. He also shares his frustrations about not being able to find a way to conduct corneal wound-healing research without harming an unborn child. The questions in his heart were “Are science and faith really this contradictory? Should we do fetal wound-healing research without our moral, ethical and faith principles? Or, should we not do this research at all and not advance medicine and improve the quality of our lives?”

What would you do?

This is a story of one man’s inspirational journey, of turning fear, poverty, persecution and prejudice into healing and love for others. It demonstrates how focus, determination, humility and profound faith, can inspire a life that, in turn, impacts that of countless others.
