The Power List 2019 – Emerging Leaders

Preeya K. Gupta

Associate Professor of Ophthalmology, Cornea & Refractive Surgery, Duke University Eye Center, Durham, USA.

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

I love going to work every day knowing that no matter how hard my day is, there will be a time in that day where I will have made a real difference for someone. Beyond the human aspects, I love being an ophthalmologist because ophthalmology is an ever-changing field. I value the opportunity to work with industry, and being able to help shape future drugs and devices that will one day help our patients.

What’s the best part of being an ophthalmologist?

I feel very fortunate to be an ophthalmologist — I wake up every day and get to help my patients see better.  It’s easy to take what ophthalmologists do for granted, but it is a tremendous gift and opportunity for me to help those in my community, and beyond.
