"I enjoy the challenge of identifying a patient’s vision-related problem—and then working through the treatment options to find the one that will address both their immediate medical issues and their longer-term quality of life concerns."
It is impressive that Dr. Brian Do has already achieved prominence in the subspecialty of identifying and treating many of the most commonly misdiagnosed inflammatory and infectious diseases of the eye. It is his study and management of Uveitis—a disease to which as much as 20% of blindness in the developed world is attributed—among other eye diseases that makes him one of the D.C. area’s few retinal practitioners with an expertise in treating various types of potentially vision-threatening conditions.
Prior to pursuing a career in medicine, Dr. Do completed his B.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering at Cornell University before returning to his home state of New Jersey where he graduated from the Rutgers New Jersey Medical School with high honors. After completing an Internal Medicine internship at Weill Medical College of Cornell, he did his Ophthalmology Residency and Uveitis & Ocular Immunology Fellowship at The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and the New York Eye & Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai in New York City. He then completed his Vitreoretinal Surgery Fellowship at the prestigious USC Roski Eye Institute of the Keck School of Medicine of USC in Los Angeles.
A frequent lecturer on Uveitis, Dr. Do has spoken at events hosted by several highly-respected organizations in the field—the Association for Research in Vision & Ophthalmology and the American Society of Retina Specialists among them—and most recently made a presentation at RGW’s Optometric Symposium in Washington, D.C. He has conducted research and co-authored articles published in prominent medical journals including Retinal Physician, Current Opinion in Ophthalmology and Ocular Immunology & Inflammation. He has also authored a number of textbook chapters on subjects ranging from ocular inflammatory diseases to retinal imaging.
Dr. Do is a member of the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS), the American Uveitis Society and the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO). He has received a variety of industry-related honors, including the Vit Buckle Society’s “Travel Grant Award” and the “Excellence in Teaching” Award presented by the Institute for Medical Education at the Icahn School of Medicine.
