- Uday Devgan, MD, FACS, FRCS is an international expert in ocular surgery, with a special interest in cataract, refractive lens implant, and LASIK surgery. Dr. Devgan is both in private practice, where he specializes in the full spectrum of vision surgery, as well as in academic medicine as Associate Clinical Professor at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at the UCLA School of Medicine.
Dr. Devgan has operated a highly successful cataract and refractive lens practice for the past 10 years in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, California. His expertise in the areas of cataract removal, refractive lens exchange, and accommodating / multi-focal lenses provides patients with more surgical options.
After graduating as valedictorian of Santa Monica High School, Dr. Devgan accepted multiple scholarships to UCLA where he majored in microbiology and molecular genetics. He earned his M.D. with Highest Distinction at the top of his class at the USC School of Medicine where he was co-president of the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society. He trained at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA, where he won awards for outstanding achievement as well as research.
He has personally taught surgery to every UCLA ophthalmology resident surgeon for the past decade in his position at Chief of Ophthalmology at Olive View-UCLA Medical Center. Dr. Devgan is the only faculty member to have won the annual UCLA teaching award twice (2002 & 2007), and now three times (2012), and annually he awards the best UCLA resident ophthalmologist with the Devgan Award for Surgical Excellence.
Dr. Devgan sums up his surgery philosophy when he states, "I give every patient the same level of care, detail, and surgical excellence as I would give to my own family." Perhaps that’s why so many other surgeons have chosen Dr. Devgan for surgery on their eyes.
