Dr. Peter Chang was born and raised in Taipei, Taiwan. He moved to the United States at age 13 and has come to call New England his second home. He received Bachelor of Science in Biology from Brown University in 2004 and Doctor of Medicine from Tufts University School of Medicine in 2008. After medical school, Dr. Chang pursued a 2-year Clinical Research Fellowship in Uveitis and Ocular Immunology with Dr. Foster, and he served as the Chief Research Fellow from 2009 to 2010. The MERSI training helped solidify his interest in complex ocular conditions and systemic rheumatic disorders. Upon completing medical internship at Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, MA, Dr. Chang moved to Manhattan and underwent residency training in Ophthalmology at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary of Mount Sinai. During his senior year, he held responsibilities as the Administrative Chief Resident. Dr. Chang then completed fellowship training in Vitreoretinal Surgery at the Illinois Eye and Ear Infirmary in Chicago, where he was named Fellow of the Year. In fall of 2016, Dr. Chang returned to Boston and joined MERSI as a Partner.

Dr. Chang specializes in ocular inflammatory disease and vitreoretinal surgery. Conditions he treat include uveitis, scleritis, retinal detachment, macular hole and pucker, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vascular diseases. Outside of work, Dr. Chang enjoys playing the piano, biking, cooking, and traveling with his family. He is fluent in Mandarin Chinese.
