Patient Care Philosophy
I strongly believe that patients deserve a physician who listens, keeps them well-informed and is a partner in accomplishing the best treatment plan customized to their needs.
Dr. Shen enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters. She expresses herself artistically through Chinese calligraphy, Chinese watercolor, photography and sculpture. She frequently donates her artwork to local communities and organizations in order to raise funds for vision care.
Cataract surgery with intraocular implant; refractive surgery; corneal transplant surgery.
Dr. Shen's research group focuses on developing innovative solutions to treating global blindness by leveraging technological advancements in polymer sciences, microelectronics and modern imaging techniques.
Examples of specific projects include: developing the next generation of artificial cornea using advanced polymer research, microelectronic sensing technology for continuous wireless monitoring of the intraocular pressure, and a controlled intra-ocular drug delivery system to prevent post-operative infections in developing nations.
The lab collaborates broadly with engineering departments (bioengineering, electrical engineering) and other departments with expertise in visual science research (such as biological structure).
