      Collapse Overview
      Dr. Saras Ramanathan is an ophthalmologist who specializes in the surgical treatment of cataracts, particularly complex cases. She is also a nationally recognized medical educator. Her publications on surgical simulation and cataract surgery teaching methodology have influenced the way surgical ophthalmology is taught in the U.S. today. Ramanathan's efforts have been rewarded by numerous teaching awards, as well as by the success and achievements of her former residents.

      Ramanathan earned a medical degree from the University of Washington. Subsequently, she completed a residency in ophthalmology at the University of Chicago, where she later joined the faculty and eventually became the medical residency program director. She also served on the ophthalmology faculty at John Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute before joining UCSF, where she is now an associate professor of ophthalmology.
