The Power List 2017
Assistant PROFESSOR AT Eastern Virginia Medical School and Cornea, Cataract and Refractive Surgeon with Virginia Eye Consultants, NORFOLK, VA, USA
Yeu is a rising leader in the fields of cornea and cataract surgery, in great demand as a speaker at national and international congresses. She cares deeply about education, and currently serves as the Chair of the Young Eye Surgeons Clinical Committee for ASCRS, as Communications Secretariat for AAO, and is the Chief Medical Editor of the peer-reviewed U.S. Ophthalmic Review. While she is a self-proclaimed mediocre-to-poor cook in the kitchen today, Yeu supported herself through undergrad and medical school by working as a sushi chef.
A nominator said: “Elizabeth Yeu is a powerhouse when it comes to clinical, surgical and academic excellence in ophthalmology. Her productivity and value as a key opinion and thought leader in ophthalmology are only eclipsed by the quality of her surgical skills and clinical acumen. Additionally, she has already thrived in the academic setting, publishing multiple peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and has given too many lectures to count. Having personally observed her in each of these arenas, she is definitely a member of ophthalmology’s most elite class. She’s also a fantastic role model for young female ophthalmologists.”
