In October 2015, Dr. Jingyun Wang joined Salus University Pennsylvania College of Optometry. She moved her laboratory from Indiana University School of Medicine to the Pennsylvania College of Optometry to conduct studies of pediatric eye diseases. With more than a decade of research experience studying children's eyes, Dr. Wang has developed a unique expertise; she keeps her pediatric patients smiling while she accurately tests their eyes using a variety of non-invasive techniques.
Dr. Wang's primary research goal is to develop better diagnosis and treatment protocols to optimize the visual outcomes of every child affected by eye disease. Her research projects focus on the normal and abnormal development of the retina, refractive errors and visual function in children, especially those with congenital and early onset eye disorders.
