Current Research and Scholarly Interests My research has focused on improving the visual outcomes of children with congenital cataracts. I organized a randomized clinical trial, the Infant Aphakia Treatment Study to compare the visual outcomes of infants optically corrected with a contact lens vs. an intraocular lens after unilateral cataract surgery. A second area of research has been ocular growth after cataract surgery.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Leng was the first surgeon in California to perform a subretinal transplant of adult neural stem cells into patients with macular degeneration and is actively researching cellular, biologic and laser-based therapies for macular degeneration. He also has an active program in imaging informatics and deep learning to perform big data analyses of retinal scans to identify patients who are at risk for retinal disease deterioration. The end goal is earlier detection and rapid treatment to maximize visual outcomes.
Dr. Leng is considered a leading expert on optical coherence tomography (OCT), a non-invasive and non-contact imaging technique for the retina. He is also a leader in OCT-based angiography (OCTA), a novel way of imaging the microvasculature of the retina.

Clinical Assistant Professor, Ophthalmology
Current Research and Scholarly Interests Dr. Lin spearheads the Cornea Transplant Program at Stanford and his research interests include improving the success and safety of cutting edge surgeries such as ultra-thin DSAEK, DMEK, and DALK. He is actively researching surgical therapies for corneal edema and Fuchs' Dystrophy. He is among a handful of cornea specialists nationwide with extensive experience using intraoperative OCT imaging to perform cornea transplants.
