William Jerry Chang, MD, is an ophthalmologist with 20/20 vision for success.
Dr. Chang’s skill as an eye surgeon is admired by colleagues throughout TPMG, who routinely refer their most challenging cases to him. Since he became Chief of Ophthalmology at Redwood City in 1998, his department has garnered numerous acknowledgements for meeting quality, access, and budgetary goals and has been a top performer in patient satisfaction for the past 21 consecutive quarters.
He helped create numerous best practices that have become standard protocols program-wide.

Always thinking proactively and with KP members in mind, Dr. Chang helped develop Northern California’s Laser Vision Correction Services, making refractive/laser surgery available in the region.
Currently, as Chair of the Regional Eye Care Technology Committee, he helps evaluate and obtain the highest quality equipment at the best prices.
