Dr. John P. Fang
Dr. John Fang earned his medical degree from Vanderbilt University, after receiving Bachelor of Science degrees in both Biomedical Engineering and Chemical Engineering from Johns Hopkins University, graduating with general and departmental honors. At the Mayo Clinic, he completed an internship in medicine and a residency in ophthalmology, and served as co-chief resident in his final year. A subsequent fellowship in cornea, anterior segment, and refractive surgery at Baylor College of Medicine further refined his surgical skills. Throughout his training, Dr. Fang has received numerous awards including the Gill Scholarship for Ophthalmology Research and the National Eye Institute Fellowship award.
He is board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology. He is also a member of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery and Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society. Prior to joining Miramar Eye Specialists, Dr. Fang was an attending ophthalmologist at the Dean McGee Eye Institute, the Department of Ophthalmology for the University of Oklahoma, where he helped educate and train new residents and fellows.
Dr. Fang specializes in medical and surgical treatment of diseases affecting the cornea of the eye, cataract and intraocular lens implant surgery, and refractive laser surgery such as LASIK and PRK. Dr. Fang is one of the first physicians in Ventura County who uses Cornea Cross-linking to kelp patients with Keratoconus (KC). He also has a particular interest in cornea transplantation, ocular surface disorders, dry eye syndrome, contact lens intolerance, and surgical correction of myopia, hyperopia, regular and irregular astigmatism. He is delighted to share his expertise in cornea, cataract, and refractive care with the Ventura County community. Dr. Fang speaks Mandarin and Basic Spanish.
