MANSFIELD – Ohio Eye Associates is proud to announce that a new ophthalmologist will join its growing team. On Sept. 13, Lisa Chung, MD, will start her position as a comprehensive ophthalmologist, specializing in cataract and LASIK surgery and offering support to the local community by treating eye disorders and diseases.

“I wanted to find a practice in a place where I felt like I could be the most helpful to the people there, a place that needs physicians and where I felt like I could serve society best,” Chung said. 

“With ophthalmology, it depends greatly on imaging modalities and microscopes and lasers,” Chung said. “At Ohio Eye, they have wonderful equipment and the capabilities to perform the most technologically advanced procedures like bladeless cataract surgery and LASIK.” 

Chung obtained her MD at the University of Toledo College of Medicine, and completed further medical and surgical training at The Ohio State University. Aside from cataract surgery and LASIK, she will assess and treat patients with dry eye, glaucoma, macular degeneration and more.

When asked why she chose comprehensive ophthalmology as her specialty, Chung said, “I wanted to be able to treat as much as I could and help a variety of diseases and people. That is the most fulfilling to me.”

At Ohio Eye Associates, a growing team of professionals will provide a complete care plan when eye issues emerge, from minimal to convoluted. Chung is antsy for Sept. 13 to arrive so that she can start her journey to serving the North Central Ohio community. 

“It's special to be able to provide multi-specialty care to patients all in one place and to work as a team to provide care for really complex patients,” Chung said.
