    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Saras Ramanathan is the Division Chief of Comprehensive Ophthalmology 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 her 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 residency program director. She also served on the ophthalmology faculty at John Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute before joining UCSF, where she is currently a professor, and Director of the Residency Program.
