Dr. Kim has had many academic accomplishments, including  over 200 journal articles, textbook chapters, and scientific abstracts.  He has delivered over 200 invited lectures both nationally and internationally, and his clinical and research work has earned him honors and grants from the American Academy of Ophthalmology, American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, National Institutes of Health, Fight for Sight/Research to Prevent Blindness, Heed Ophthalmic Foundation, Alcon Laboratories, and Allergan.  He is also the editor of Curbside Consultation in Cataract Surgery:  49 Clinical Questions, which has a recently released second edition update.

He occasionally moderates for a series of web interviews with prominent ophthalmologists on EyeTube.net.  Linked here is a video of Dr. Kim interviewing Dr. John Hovanesian about clear corneal incisions and his developments in research for the correction of cataract wounds.

At our March meeting, Dr. Kim will be covering topics such as Dense Brunescent Cataracts:  Old and New Management StrategiesPearls in the Management of Corneal Astigmatism, and Managing the Atypical Cornea in Cataract Surgery.  If you’d like to learn more about Dr. Kim and his work in advance of his lectures at our symposium, here’s an article written by he and Dr. Jay Meyer about Superficial Keratectomy for Salzmann’s Nodular Degeneration; and an interview with him by Cataract & Refractive Surgery Today where he discusses the difficulties in practicing academic ophthalmology.  We here at NOAO are so excited to have Dr. Kim as a speaker at our March symposium, and hope that you feel the same way.  Click here to register if you haven’t already!
