Dr. Judy Kim was inducted into the American Ophthalmological Society (AOS) during the society’s 150th (2014) annual meeting in New York. The AOS is limited to 275 active members and has included most of the notable luminaries in ophthalmology over the years. Dr. Kim is the first Korean-American ophthalmologist to become an AOS member. Founded in 1864, during the Civil War, the AOS was the first specialty society in the country, and its membership has served to influence virtually every facet of American ophthalmology. Admission to membership starts with a nomination process based on leadership and research in ophthalmology and requires the writing and publication of a thesis within three years of nomination. Acceptance into the society continues to represent special recognition of personal achievement.

Dr. Judy Kim is an Ophthalmologist and a retina specialist.I am losing my vision as the result of a medicine I had taken (23 yrs) for a Bladder Disease. Dr. Kim is not only knowledgeable about this problem and is involved in research being conducted throughout the country today. It won't help me. However, perhaps others with this problem, throughout the country, she may be able prevent the blindness.
