Irvin M. Borish Professor,

Dr. Geunyoung Yoon obtained his B.S. in Physics from Sung Kyun Kwan University, South Korea and his M.S. and Ph.D., in Laser and Optical Engineering from Osaka University, Japan. Dr. Yoon went on to complete a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Rochester’s Center for Visual Science. His laboratory’s research projects focus on the optics of the eye, vision, and eye diseases. His research goals are to objectively understand optical quality of the eye and to improve visual performance by correcting the optical defects in the eye. He has successfully developed various advanced optical systems for eye research including large dynamic range wavefront sensor for highly aberrated eyes, binocular adaptive optics vision simulator and customized ophthalmic lenses/refractive surgery.

He is a recipient of the Dolly Green Special Scholars Award, Research to Prevent Blindness and David E. Bryant Trust Research Award. He is currently a panel member for the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health.
