Dr. Devgan is both in private practice, where he specializes in the full spectrum of vision surgery, as well as in academic medicine as 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.

Dr. Devgan is The Choice for Patients from across the globe.

Uday Devgan MD's reputation for surgical excellence attracts patients from across the USA and from multiple countries who fly to Los Angeles. They want the best cataract, lens, or LASIK surgery for their eyes.

An example of this is Mike, a computer engineer from Ohio who was born with eye problems that made him very myopic in his only eye. When he developed early cataracts, he flew to Los Angeles for his surgery because of Dr Devgan's expertise in these difficult cases.




Official FDA Clinical Investigator

When a biomedical company wants to introduce new technology to the US an official FDA (Food and Drug Administration) clinical trial is required. Dr Devgan has been selected as an Official FDA Clinical Investigator and independent researcher for medications, lasers, lens implants, and instruments for multiple companies.

Most recently Dr Devgan was honored as one of the four surgeons nationwide to test the Light Adjustable Lens for cataract surgery patients.
 

Honored to Perform "Live Surgery"

Successful eye surgery is a delicate balance of technical skill, grace and artistry, prudent judgment, and intricate knowledge. It's not easy to learn or perform. Now imagine doing "live surgery" while more than 1,000 other eye surgeons are watching your every move.

Uday Devgan MD was selected as the one eye surgeon (out of the 18,000 in the US) to perform live surgery at the AAO meeting to demonstrate surgical techniques. It was Dr Devgan's 10th live surgery event, with previous showcases in Hong Kong, Singapore, Italy, and more.
