Jiun Do, M.D., Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Shiley Eye Institute, a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in glaucoma, and a clinician-scientist. Dr. Do was an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley. He earned his M.D. and Ph.D. in Neurosciences from the University of California San Diego. Dr. Do completed his internship at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, his ophthalmology residency at the University of Southern California Roski Eye Institute, and his glaucoma fellowship at the University of California San Diego Shiley Eye Institute and the Hamilton Glaucoma Center.
Dr. Do’s clinical focus is on the medical and surgical management of glaucoma. In the surgical treatment of glaucoma, he utilizes the latest in minimally invasive glaucoma surgeries and is also skilled in conventional surgeries. Dr. Do is actively engaged in clinical research and clinical trials investigating the monitoring of glaucoma, glaucoma medications, and surgical treatments for glaucoma. He has presented his work at national conferences, published peer-reviewed articles, and is an ad-hoc reviewer for scientific journals.
Dr. Do has a scientific interest in regenerating the optic nerve and is developing research programs to restore vision. He uses novel stem cell technologies to replace components of the eye that are lost in glaucoma and to regenerate lost connections between the eye and the brain. His long-term goal is to develop translational therapies to restore vision and to help patients with blinding diseases.
