Background

Jithin Yohannan, M.D., M.P.H. is an Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His practice specializes in medical, laser, and surgical treatment of glaucoma with a focus on minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) and new glaucoma surgical devices. He also performs both routine and complex cataract surgery. Dr. Yohannan also specializes in the surgical management of complex problems of the anterior segment (front of the eye). These problems include issues that arise after trauma or prior surgery gone wrong such as dislocated intraocular lenses (IOL) or iris and pupil defects.

Dr. Yohannan earned his bachelor’s degree in biochemistry from New York University where he graduated summa cum laude. He then received his medical and master of public health degrees from Johns Hopkins University and completed an ophthalmology residency at the Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. From there, he served as a fellow in glaucoma and advanced anterior segment surgery at the University of Toronto with Ike Ahmed.

Dr. Yohannan's research focuses on using artificial intelligence algorithms to improve the tests that are used to diagnose and monitor glaucoma. He has a background in biostatistics, epidemiology, and mathematics which enables this effort. The ultimate goal of this research is to detect glaucoma and determine when it is worsening more accurately. The results of this work will ultimately help guide doctors who are managing glaucoma to make better treatment decisions.

Dr. Yohannan also has a clinical and research interest in novel surgical devices used to treat glaucoma. These devices hold the promise of making glaucoma surgery safer and easier to recover from.
