Dr. Chang joined Everett & Hurite Ophthalmic Association in 1996. After receiving his medical degree from Bowman Gray School of Medicine/Wake Forest University in North Carolina, he completed an internship at UPMC Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh. This was followed by a residency in ophthalmology at the University of Pittsburgh and a fellowship in glaucoma/anterior segment at the Massachusetts Eye & Ear Infirmary, Harvard Medical School in Boston, MA.
Dr. Chang's anterior segment training allows him to perform complicated procedures involving cataracts and cataracts combined with glaucoma. He also specializes in Toric (astigmatism correction) and Multifocal implants with sutureless small incision surgery.

Dr. Chang routinely performs SLT lasers and is certified for ECP (endocyclophotocoagulation) and trabectome procedures.
