The UC San Diego Shiley Eye Institute welcomes glaucoma specialist and clinician-scientist Jiun Do, MD, PhD as an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology. Dr. Do was an undergraduate at the University of California, Berkeley. He earned his MD and PhD of Philosophy in Neurosciences from the University of California, San Diego and completed a residency in Ophthalmology at the University of Southern California. He then was a glaucoma fellow at the UC San Diego Shiley Eye Institute and the Hamilton Glaucoma Center.
Dr. Do’s clinical focus is on glaucoma. His research involves basic science and translational approaches to replace injured cells of the eye, regenerate the optic nerve, and ultimately restore vision. He also is evaluating home monitoring devices that measure intraocular pressure to determine risks of glaucoma development and progression.
