The Power List 2019 – Emerging Leaders

Elizabeth Yeu

Assistant Professor, Department of Ophthalmology, Eastern Virginia Medical School Shareholder, Virginia Eye Consultants, Norfolk, USA.

What drives you in your day-to-day activities? 

I'm driven daily to be the best mother, wife, physician, and colleague that I can be. I want do right by my family, patients and friends, and to positively impact the profession that I’m so fortunate to be a part of.

What’s the best part of being an ophthalmologist?

Ophthalmology, particularly in the fields of cataract, corneal and refractive surgeries, allows me to positively impact and influence a patient’s life – the recovery of vision usually occurs within days of the intervention itself. Our field is a beautiful blend of science and art of medicine. The detail-oriented nature of understanding our patients’ needs and formulating precise calculations for their procedures, coupled by our experiences and refined to meet patients’ goals… my job never goes stale!
