Humanitarian Cataract Surgery

Humanitarian Cataract Surgery

Although curable with surgery, cataracts remain the leading cause of blindness in the world, accounting for more than one half of all blindness. Dr. Chang has used his international prominence to highlight and advance several important cataract efforts. He has traveled to many developing countries to perform and teach cataract surgery to local ophthalmologists.

Flomax & Cataract Surgery

Flomax & Cataract Surgery

The intraoperative floppy iris syndrome was first reported by Drs. David Chang and John Campbell in 2005. This major discovery showed that the most common prostate medications (such as Flomax) cause iris problems during cataract surgery that can lead to many complications if the surgeon does not anticipate them. Dr. Chang has done extensive clinical research and is considered one of the world authorities on how to avoid and manage these problems.
