    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Chao is an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Shiley Eye Institute at UCSD. He is a vitreoretinal surgeon and clinician-scientist, focused on translational research in retinal diseases. In addition to seeing patients with conditions such as retinal detachment, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, he runs a translational research laboratory using zebrafish to model retinal diseases as well as developing new imaging modalities for retinal disease. He also serves as principal investigator on a number of clinical trials investigating investigational medications for retinal disease. He is also serves as Director of Ophthalmology Medical Student Education, where he is involved in coordinating medical student education and mentoring medical students interested in ophthalmology.
