The Power List 2015
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.”
