On 10/27 Friday, Universal Studio will release in theaters across the U.S. the film “Sight” (based on the autobiography “From Darkness to Sight” of Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude); PhD (laser physics), co-starring Greg Kinnear). The film recently won the two biggest prizes at the 50th ICVM International Christian Film Award, the best picture and the best feature film!
Drs. Ming Wang and Rice Broocks (the creator of God’s Not Dead book and movie series) recently published the “Seeing Beyond – a Sight Movie Bible Study”. It presents a Scripture-based message of the film Sight, i.e.,
- Seeing beyond our pain (inspired by the blind orphan child Kajal in the movie)
- Seeing beyond our circumstance (inspired by Ming’s parents)
- Seeing beyond ourselves (inspired by Maria’s miracle surgery that shows that as human being we are ultimately limited, and we need to be humble and be willing to ask for help, from beyond ourselves)
- Seeing beyond our own culture (inspired by Dr. McNesby in the film who helped Ming come to America, and in the opposite way, by Dr. Norman Anderson (Dr. Scurry in the movie) who did not see beyond his own culture and discriminated Ming based on ethnicity
- Seeing beyond our polarization. America has become a nation that is increasingly fixated on our differences rather than appreciating what we all have in common. We are increasingly unable to work across political isles, racial divides and ethnic divisions. The movie “Sight” is about seeing beyond our polarization and recognize that the polarization is caused by human nature (for power and control), and only through heeding to a higher calling, from Jesus Christ, can we truly bring our beloved nation, back on a path towards unity.
About Dr. Ming Wang, MD, PhD
Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude); PhD (laser physics), is a world-renowned laser eye surgeon, philanthropist, and a co-founder with Dr. Rice Broocks of the non-profit Common Ground Network.
As a teenager, Ming fought valiantly to escape China’s Cultural Revolution – 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.
The amniotic membrane contact lens, which Dr. Wang has invented (and holds two U.S. patents), has been used by tens of thousands of eye doctors throughout the world in nearly every nation, and millions have had their eyesight restored.
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.
