About

About

Sung Chul (Sean) Park, MD, is a clinician-scientist specializing in glaucoma, cataract, anterior segment disorders, minimally invasive glaucoma/cataract surgery, ocular imaging, perimetry and eye disease screening. He pioneered the new field of three-dimensional high-resolution imaging and analysis of the optic nerve head in human glaucoma, discovering a new set of pathogenic mechanisms of the development and progression of glaucoma. He also elucidated the risk factors and progression pattern of central visual field loss in glaucoma and revealed that patients with central visual field loss would benefit from visual field tests with centrally condensed test points, broadening ophthalmologists understanding in this field and improving patient care.

He has more than 40 peer-reviewed articles mostly as the first or corresponding author in top ophthalmology journals including Ophthalmology, Investigative Ophthalmology and Visual Science (IOVS), and JAMA Ophthalmology, and has written 6 book chapters. He has given more than 160 original presentations and invited lectures in the U.S., Germany, Japan, Australia, France, Netherlands, Hong Kong, China, India, Turkey, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates. He is an expert reviewer for 10 top peer-reviewed journals including Ophthalmology, IOVS, and JAMA Ophthalmology. He has been honored with more than 13 national or international awards and scholarships, including the American Academy of Ophthalmology Achievement Award, American Glaucoma Society Young Clinician Scientist Award, American Glaucoma Society MAPS Award, Empire Clinical Research Investigator Program Fellowship of New York State, Eye Bank of New York Research Grant, New York Glaucoma Research Institute Grants, Travel Grants at the Annual Meetings of Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology (ARVO) and at the World Glaucoma Congress, and Best Scientific Poster Award at the Annual Meeting of American Academy of Ophthalmology.

After finishing his clinical and research glaucoma fellowships, Dr. Park joined the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary s faculty in 2011, where he served as the Director of Glaucoma Clinic and the Director of Moise and Chella Safra Advanced Ocular Imaging Laboratory.

"Dr. Park was recommended to me by a good friend of mine that he was seeing and having multiple eye problems. He spoke of him highly and although I'd had several previous eye specialists I decided like 3-4 years ago to switch doctors and see him. I don't regret that one bit and next month and soon thereafter I'll have him do my cataract surgeries."
