    Dr. Michelle Lingao took a different route early in her medical career, in which she steered her life to success. She initially took up physical therapy before she shifted to ophthalmology.

    Dr. Lingao finished her fellowship in pediatric ophthalmology and adult strabismus at the University of the Philippines–Philippine General Hospital (UP-PGH) in 2009 and has been in practice for over eight years. On the other hand, she completed training in ocular genetics in 2013 at Wills Eye Institute in Philadelphia, USA. She is also one of the few ocular genetics practitioners in the globe.
