He then completed a medical internship at Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego followed by a residency in ophthalmology at the prestigious Stein Eye Institute at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA), perennially the #1 eye hospital in the western US. At UCLA, he was recognized with two coveted Stein Resident Awards: Surgical Excellence and Clinical Research. He then completed a two-year medical and surgical retina fellowship at Wills Eye Hospital in Philadelphia and was the recipient of the William Tasman, MD Outstanding Fellow Teaching Award.

Prior to joining Mid Atlantic Retina, Dr. Chiang was in private practice in the San Francisco Bay Area as a retina surgeon and received recognition as a Top Doctor by Oakland Magazine. In 2013, he returned to Philadelphia and the Retina Service of Wills Eye Hospital and shortly thereafter earned recognition as one of the Top 40 Doctors Under 40 in Pennsylvania by the Pennsylvania Medical Society. He is currently an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University and is actively involved in the education and training of the next generation of ophthalmologists and retina specialists. He is also a member of the Wills Eye Hospital Peer Review Committee. Board-certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology since 2010, Dr. Chiang is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS), Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, Pennsylvania Academy of Ophthalmology, Montgomery County Medical Society, and the Vit-Buckle Society. In addition, he is an elected member of the Retina Society and ASRS Communications Committee.

Dr. Chiang has contributed over 80 scientific articles, abstracts, and textbook chapters on vitreoretinal diseases and is a reviewer for major ophthalmic journals including RETINA, Ophthalmology Retina, American Journal of Ophthalmology, and British Journal of Ophthalmology. He is co-editor of The Pocket Guide to Medical Retina, a reference manual for both trainees and clinicians. He is an editorial board member of Retina Today and served as an editorial board member of the Retina Section of the AAO Ophthalmic News and Education (ONE) Network, a platform that delivers continuing medical education for the nation’s ophthalmologists.

Motivated to develop new therapies for retinal diseases, he is a Principal Investigator and Co-Investigator at the Retina Research Unit at Wills Eye Hospital on numerous national and international clinical trials for conditions such as age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. He has been selected to speak and present scientific papers at national ophthalmic meetings and is a past recipient of the American Society of Retina Specialists Honor Award for these contributions.
