About Lisa Park, MD


Lisa Park, MD is an Associate Professor of Ophthalmology at Columbia University Medical Center and an Attending Ophthalmologist at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.


Dr. Park received her undergraduate degree from Harvard College and her medical degree from Yale School of Medicine. She completed her residency training at NYU and a fellowship in anterior segment and refractive surgery at Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital and New York University School of Medicine. After completing a fellowship in anterior segment and refractive surgery, she joined the faculty at NYU where she was Assistant and Associate Director of Residency Training at NYU for eleven years, mentoring over 70 residents and pioneering the use of virtual surgery simulation in residency training. During the same time, she served as Chief of Ophthalmology at Bellevue Hospital where she was recognized by NYC Health & Hospitals as "Doctor of the Year" in 2007.


Dr. Park joined Columbia's Department of Ophthalmology in 2017, and is a well-recognized cataract surgeon with a flourishing practice on Manhattan's west side. She is an expert in the latest surgical techniques including femtosecond-laser assisted cataract surgery and the use of astigmatism and presbyopia correcting intraocular lens implants. She has been consistently recognized as a Castle Connolly Top Doctors since 2015, and Exceptional Women in Medicine since 2019. In 2021, Dr. Park was elected to Columbia Doctors FPO Board of Governance, and currently serves as the Department of Ophthalmology's Diversity Equity and Inclusion Officer.


Dr. Park has published nearly 70 book chapters, journal articles and research abstracts, and lectures nationally and internationally on complex cataract surgery techniques. Her interests include global ophthalmology, and she travels regularly to Guatemala and East Africa to teach and perform humanitarian eye surgery in developing countries, serving on the boards of a number of non-profit organizations dedicated to combating world blindness. Her philosophy is that no two eyes are the same, and her objective is to meet each individual's visual needs.
