Background

Dr. William May is an associate professor of ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins, and a clinical professor of ophthalmology at the University of Southern California. He specializes in cataract and refractive surgery. As a comprehensive ophthalmologist, he is qualified to care for a broad range of eye care problems. Dr. May’s particular interest is femtosecond laser cataract surgery, eye problems in the Middle East, and prevention of blindness in children through early detection of eye diseases worldwide.

Dr. May graduated magna cum laude from the University of California in San Diego with a bachelor of arts degree in biology. 

Dr. May received his medical degree from the University of California at Davis where he was the Morton Levitt Research Scholar. He completed his ophthalmology residency at The University of Southern California’s Doheny Eye Institute, where he later received fellowship training in refractive surgery. He subsequently served as the president of the USC- Doheny Refractive Surgery Medical Group.

Dr. May joined the Wilmer faculty in 2013, when he became director of the Anterior Segment division at the King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital in Saudi Arabia. He returned to the United States and joined the Wilmer Eye Institute’s Comprehensive Eye Service in early 2016.

Prior to joining Johns Hopkins, Dr. May practiced simultaneously in multiple locations throughout Southern California, including Los Angeles and Catalina Island, and was named one of the “Best Doctors in America.”  

He is one of the co-founders of the American Brazilian Ophthalmology Association, and as its current U.S. president, frequently travels to lecture in Brazil. He speaks Spanish and Portuguese.
