Cataract and Refractive Surgeon; Vision Correction Specialist
Daniel H. Chang, M.D. is a board certified ophthalmologist who came to Bakersfield to join his brother, Dr. Joe Chang. Dr. Daniel Chang graduated with honors from the California Institute of Technology. He then received his medical and ophthalmology training from two of the most prestigious programs in the Southeast: Duke University, where he performed groundbreaking laser vision correction research; and Emory University, where he earned the title of Chief Resident in Ophthalmology. Dr. Chang so distinguished himself at these two programs that he became the only surgeon in the country invited to the most prestigious cornea and refractive surgery fellowship at Minnesota Eye Consultants.
Dr. Chang has authored numerous articles and publications on refractive surgery and advanced intraocular lenses. He regularly lectures at eye meetings from the local through the international level; and he trains and advises other surgeons and physicians on laser vision correction. He has performed thousands of successful LASIK, PRK, cataract, and corneal transplant procedures. Dr. Chang practiced as a refractive surgeon and corneal specialist in Phoenix, AZ for two years before responding to his brother’s invitation to relocate to Bakersfield and bring world-class refractive surgery to our town in 2008.
Dr. Chang is a volunteer surgeon and a founding member on the board of directors for Advanced Center for Eyecare, a non-profit clinic that provides medical and surgical eyecare to the uninsured and underinsured people of Kern County.
Dr. Chang and his wife, Lisa, have 7-year old and 4-year old daughters, Sarah and Abigail. Dr. Chang enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, watching Duke Basketball, working out at the gym, and playing with the latest electronic gadget from Apple, Inc.
