Dr. Wong

Posted on 2017-03-03

Dr. Wong is a consultant ophthalmologist and vitreoretinal surgeon in London, UK, at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH), Moorfields Eye Hospital and the Royal Free Hospital.

He had previously undertaken unique multi-fellowship training in both adult and paediatric vitreoretinal surgery at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London, Beaumont Hospital in Michigan and Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

With a super-specialty practice in complex paediatric vitreoretinal surgery and retinovascular diseases, he introduced novel endoscopic vitrectomy for retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) to the UK in 2014, making GOSH only one of only two centres in the world with expertise in this treatment. In collaboration with Oxford University, GOSH has become the de facto UK national surgical centre for all patients with retinal detachment in ROP.

He has published extensively in the field of paediatric vitreoretinal surgery and has run over 20 surgical courses as lead or co-instructor both in the UK and internationally. This includes being the current course director of “Paediatric Vitreoretinal Disorders: Current & Future Management” at the American Academy of Ophthalmology annual congress.

Additionally, Dr. Wong is the UK Chief Investigator and Moorfields Eye Hospital Principal Investigator for the RAINBOW trial, an international randomised controlled trial of intravitreal ranibizimab versus standard-of-care retinal laser.

Beyond the UK, he works closely with the Armenian Eye Care Project to support their ROP screening and surgical treatment program, including training a local team at their new national paediatric vitreoretinal surgical centre.
