Introducing Dr. Kim

In this post I’d like to introduce you to a very gifted physician on the Emory Vision team.

John Kim, MD, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology at Emory University. His areas of expertise include refractive surgery, the management of corneal and external eye diseases, and cataract surgery.

After graduating from Johns Hopkins University, Dr. Kim received his medical degree from the University of Maryland School of Medicine and served as chief resident while completing his ophthalmology residency training at the Eye and Ear Institute of the University of Pittsburgh. Following four years in private practice, he completed a fellowship in cornea, external disease and refractive surgery at the Cincinnati Eye Institute.

Dr. Kim is board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, and the Cornea Society.

He’s performed laser refractive surgery since 2000, and he recently wrote a chapter in a widely respected book on LASIK.  Today he serves on the Refractive Surgery Management and Intervention Self–Assessment committee of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.

Dr. Kim lives in Atlanta with his wife, Gloria and their three lively young boys: Andrew (7), Joshua (3) and Luke (2).  His favorite hobby is playing sports with his sons, and he’s an avid golfer. In fact, he delights in hearing his patients share details of their improved ability to see the ball (and the entire golf course) after LASIK surgery.

As you can see, we have good reason to be incredibly proud of our talented team of physicians at Emory Vision.

Who Is J. Bradley Randleman, MD?

Dr. Randleman of Emory Vision will be performing surgery on Daren Wang, our Live LASIK candidate, so I thought it would be fitting to tell you a bit about Dr. Randleman’s background.

Since practicing and teaching at Emory, he has trained over 50 physicians in refractive surgery, cataract surgery and corneal transplantation. Additionally, he’s authored 50-60 scientific publications, as well as a handful of book chapters on LASIK and various topics in ophthalmology.

Dr. Randleman has contributed over 50 hours of national lectures and presentations, and he’s the Associate Editor of for The Journal of Refractive Surgery.

Recently, Dr. Randleman’s outstanding skills were recognized on a national level when he was awarded the Secretariat Award from the American Academy of Ophthalmology for his contributions to the field. He was also awarded the prestigious Claes Dohlman Society Award, an honor that is bestowed in the US only once a year to an individual who demonstrates academic and surgical excellence in Cornea and Refractive Surgery training.

Over the span of his career, Dr. Randleman has performed thousands of LASIK procedures. Despite his busy schedule, he always makes a point to meet with his patients personally to analyze their vision and the health of their corneas.

Outside of Opthalmology, Dr. Randleman’s passions include photography and traveling the world.

We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Randleman on the Emory Vision team. Sufficed to say, Daren Wang is in extraordinarily capable hands!

In the near future, I’ll devote a blog post to John Kim, MD, and Maria Woodward, MD—two equally talented physicians that complete our Emory Vision team.
