Dissecting a Pig Eye for Halloween!

Why should higher level learning and being completely grossed out be mutually exclusive? Just in time for Halloween, Dr. Michael Wong recently dissected a pig eye for a school assembly at the Princeton Academy, letting them enjoy the spectacle of seeing a giant eyeball projected onto a large screen, while at the same time learning about the wonders of ocular anatomy.

Spook-tacular! 👻👀

#PegCares Day 2018

We are thrilled at the results of our first ever #PEGCares Day! Last Saturday, Dr. Samuel Liu, joined by six volunteer staff, provided free eye care to 12 patients without insurance. Eligible patients were referred by Penn Medicine Princeton Health.

The idea was initiated by Katerina Liu, a 2nd year Rutgers University student, and daughter of Dr. Sam Liu. It perfectly embodies the giving spirit at PEG, and will be the first of many such days where we can give back to those in need in our immediate community.

Thank you to all who gave time and expertise in support of this great day!
