Qualifications and Experience
Dr. Jason Ming Zhao graduated from Hunan Medical University in China (former Xiangya Medical School co-funded by Yale-China Association in 1914) in 1982. He had a busy ophthalmic practice in China when he and his wife accepted an opportunity to move to San Antonio and work in medical research at the University of Texas Health Science Center in 1991.
Between 1991 and 1997, Dr. Ming presented and published many scientific papers. However, he missed taking care of patients. For this reason, he returned to active medical practice. He began his training in the United States with a surgical internship and an ophthalmology residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, then joined the ophthalmic practice at San Antonio Eye Center in 2001. Dr. Ming is American Board certified in ophthalmology. His practice involves large area of the eye disorders including cataract, glaucoma, corneal diseases as well as eyelid problems.
Dr. Ming and his wife, Joan, have two children. Jenny, who was born in China in 1989, loves ice-skating and prefers “American” food to Chinese food.
Jared was born in San Antonio in February of 2000, just a few months before Dr. Ming and his wife became United States citizens. ‘Jason’ is his adopted American name, ‘Ming’ is his given Chinese name and ‘Zhao’ is his family name.
Verified Patient Reviews
the young man who saw me first was efficient and fast. Dr. Zhao was excellent like he always is.
He was my Mom's doctor so that's recommendation enough for me. Thorough check-up because I am diabetic.
Every body is always very professional.
Very professional and knowledgeable.
This is a doctor who is really good...who is confident in what he does with one of our most precious possessions, our eyes. His bed-side manner is marvelous, cheerful, understanding of your needs but clear of what is the best course for your eyes. His office is filled with people, which may create a sense of his not taking time with each person. The fact is he knows his craft so well and examines and determines the correct evaluation so swiftly that it may seem as if he's not there with you long enough. The opposite is true. You don't need him in the room any longer...he's done his 'stuff.' Ask any and all questions though and he will take the time to answer until you are completely satisfied. Your eyes are in good hands with Jason Zhao, MD!

Excellent eye doctor, for sure!
We had a long wait but he was worth the wait, my daughter has a medical eye ulcer condition and has seen numerous of specialists. He is the only 1 that provided an actual diagnosis and cause of her condition which was due to her immune system. The check in and check out ladies were amazing as well. I am a happy parent!
Dr. Ming walked into the room joyful and confident. He immediately disarmed any nervousness over seeing a new doctor and made me feel relaxed and comfortable. He was informative, and provided me with a good understanding about my eye health. Being new to San Antonio, I did not have a doctor nor did I have a recommendation from anyone. I am truly glad that I found him. He is an outstanding doctor.

Last minute change. The Dr. I seen was Vasudha Panday. She was wonderful.
I went for my annual checkup. Dr. Zhao and the technicians at his office were very pleasant. They listened to what I had to say and explained things very clearly.
I haven't had an eye appointment in a long time. Everyone was courteous and I was seen relatively fast. The doctor was very assuring and kind. The clinic was nice and not hard to find....
The receptionist at the desk was extremely lovely. I didn't catch her name, but she was awesome. There was a bit of a wait but as a new patient I expected that. The staff were all really nice, and the doctor was very nice as well. They dilated my pupils and checked the pressure and all of that plus gave me my prescriptions and samples of eye drops. The only thing I did not know was you have to print out your ZocDoc forms if you choose to do them online because they can't print them. Other than that it was fine.
It was professional and he help me understand the procedure he did to my eyes.
friedly helpful staff.
