Dr. Schonmei Wu was born and raised in Houston, Texas. She left her Texas roots for cold Boston winters to attend college at Harvard University, where she graduated Cum Laude in biology. She stayed on the East Coast for her Doctorate of Medicine at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, then stayed in New York City for another year for internship at New York Hospital Queens. Afterwards, she decided to go back home to Houston for ophthalmology residency at Baylor College of Medicine. She finally realized that the West Coast is indeed the best coast, and she came to University of California San Francisco for subspecialty training in glaucoma.
Dr. Wu specializes in glaucoma, including primary open angle, narrow angle, uveitic, pseudoexfoliation, and pigment dispersion. She is an expert in the most up to date medical, laser, and surgical treatments, and she is passionate about preserving patients’ vision in what is often a chronic and long-term disease.
Dr. Wu is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) and American Glaucoma Society (AGS).
