Elizabeth Yeu

The Power List 2015

Elizabeth Yeu

With a research focus on corneal astigmatism and higher order aberrations, ocular surface disease diagnostics and therapeutics, keratoconus management and technical advances in endothelial keratoplasty, Yeu also dedicates her time to ophthalmology residency education at Eastern Virginia Medical School.

On her work, Yeu says, “the cornea provides a beautiful marriage of science, innovation, and the “wow” factor for our patients. It is a dynamic field that welcomes advances to improve outcomes and patient care. I dream big and work tirelessly, and I hope to advance my field through innovations in cataract surgery and dry eye management.”

She advises newcomers to the field to, “Push past your own expectations and be the best version of you possible!”

A nominator said: “Elizabeth Yeu is a rising leader in the fields of cornea and cataract surgery. She serves several national organizations, and is currently the Chair for the Young Eye Surgeons Clinical Committee for the ASCRS, and serves on various committees for the AAO including the Communications Secretariat and the Annual Meeting Program Refractive Surgery Committee. She has an uncanny ability to meld academic theory and research with real world surgical experience in a busy private practice.”

Top 40 Under 40

In 2014, we compiled a list of the Top 100 most influential people in ophthalmology – an endeavor that received a significant amount of attention and, it’s fair to say, caused more than a little controversy. For our 2015 Top 40 Under 40 list we’ve taken a different approach, asking: who are the young, up-and-coming individuals set to rise to the top of their field? That’s the question we posed to ourselves – and then to you – ahead of open nominations and a painstaking judging process. Our list this year almost halves the average age of the celebrated individuals, with many of them born in the same year as the iconic Sex Pistols cover – 1977. Though we admit that no list of this type can be definitive, it does clearly show that the future of ophthalmology is very bright indeed. And so, without further ado, we celebrate the movers and shakers aged 40 or under who show what can be achieved with determination, passion and inspiration.
