Owen Qi, M.D.Dr. Owen Qi is a comprehensive ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon. Originally from San Diego, CA, he studied at Washington University in St. Louis, graduating summa cum laude with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. He was excited to stay at Washington University
to complete his medical degree at one of the top medical schools in the country.

With an interest in understanding the variety in healthcare delivery organizations, he completed his Internship at Mercy Hospital in St. Louis before returning to Washington University and Barnes-Jewish Hospital for his ophthalmology residency.

Graduating at the height of the COVID pandemic, he took the opportunity to fill a need at the Hennepin County Medical Center, a safety net hospital and a busy level 1 trauma center serving the community of Minneapolis. While there he enjoyed treating a diverse group
of patients with complex social determinants while teaching ophthalmology residents from the University of Minnesota.

He is passionate about cataract surgery and provides customized surgical planning to give his patients great outcomes. He offers premium lens implants to reduce glasses dependence after cataract removal and is certified in the latest minimally-invasive glaucoma surgery techniques.
