Michael K. Yoon, MD
Massachusetts Eye and Ear
243 Charles Street
Boston, Massachusetts, United States
Dr. Michael Yoon is a member of the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Ophthalmic Plastic Surgery Service, as well as the Center for Thyroid Eye Disease and Orbital Surgery. He treats patients with orbit, eyelid, and tear drainage system dysfunctions. He specializes in orbital tumors and inflammations, traumatic lacerations and fractures, and reconstructive and cosmetic eyelid surgery.
Dr. Yoon graduated magna cum laude from an accelerated medical degree program at Albany Medical College and Union College. He completed his ophthalmology residency training at Tufts-New England Medical Center and received the ophthalmic knowledge assessment program achievement award. He went on to complete fellowship training in neuro-ophthalmology, orbital surgery, and ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of California, San Francisco, Medical Center.
While Dr. Yoon’s clinical practice and teaching constitute the majority of his work at Massachusetts Eye and Ear, he is also a productive clinical researcher. He is especially interested in studying ways to improve the diagnosis and treatment of orbital diseases, including that involve growths in the eye socket. He also investigates thyroid-related eye disease, which can cause changes in the eye socket that may lead to impaired vision, including double vision or vision loss.
