The film “Sight” based on the autobiography “From Darkness to Sight” by Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude); PhD (laser physics) has completed shooting in Vancouver and is expected to be released in early 2022.
Greg Kinnear co-stars in the film together with Terry Chen.
Dr. Wang is a world-class laser eye surgeon, a philanthropist and a co-founder of the Common Ground Network which publishes “Common Ground Bible Study”.
As a teenager, Ming fought valiantly hardship in China in the 1970’s – during which millions of innocent youth were deported to remote areas to face a life sentence of hard labor and poverty. He came to America with only $50 and earned two doctorate degrees, one in laser physics and one in medicine, and graduated with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT. He invented the world’s first amniotic membrane contact lens which to date has been used by tens of thousands of doctors from around the world in nearly every nation, and millions of patients have had their eyesight restored.
The themes of the movie “Sight” are:
– As human beings we are all equal;
– Life is often not a straight line, don’t give up hope;
– While the present is indeed made possible by the past, be at peace with the past, and embrace the present!
Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge. Dr. Wang was named the Kiwanis Nashvillian of the Year for his lifelong dedication to help blind orphaned children from around the world.
