Dr. Liao is a clinician-scientist who is dedicated to making basic discoveries and improving clinical care and treatment of patients with eye-brain diseases. Dr. Liao received her undergraduate degree with high honors from Harvard University in Biochemical Sciences and her M.D., Ph.D. in Neuroscience (Medical Scientist Training Program) and Fellowship in Neuro-Ophthalmology from University of California San Francisco. She has served as Director of the Neuro-Ophthalmology since 2008 and Founding Director of the Stanford Center for Optic Disc Drusen since 2019. She also serves as Co-Director of the T32-funded Stanford Postdoctoral Vision Training Program since 2009.

Dr. Liao’s research is focused on the pathogenesis and novel treatment of optic neuropathies, which are diseases affecting the 1.2 million axons connecting the eye (captures visual information) and the brain (interprets visual information). Disruption of this important information highway leads to visual dysfunction despite good function in the retina and the brain. In particular, Dr. Liao is studying OPTIC NERVE STROKE (also called anterior ischemic optic neuropathy), which is the most common acute optic neuropathy in those older than 50 years of age, and OPTIC DISC DRUSEN, which is associated with deposition of calcified deposits in the optic nerve and the most common cause of young-onset optic nerve stroke. Her research lab aims to identify the first genes for autosomal dominant optic disc drusen. Dr. Liao’s research areas also include: (1) development of state-of-the-art in vivo imaging techniques in the eye as novel biomarkers of disease; (2) investigations of the key cellular and molecular changes in optic neuropathies leading to vision loss, including the use of patient specimen and stem cell research; and (3) testing of novel treatment for optic neuropathies, including neuroprotection and regenerative therapy.

Dr. Liao is also an expert on diseases causing eye movement abnormality and double vision. The eyes move to allow us to see, and we move our eyes about 3 times per second. Because eye movement is very precisely controlled and intergrated with visual processing, vision loss or eye movement abnormality both lead to impairment of visuo-motor behavior, leading to debilitating symptoms such as eye strain, dizziness ,and headache during activities of daily living. Dr. Liao uses noninvasive infrared eye trackers (sampling up to 1000 times per second) to perform recordings of visuo-motor behavior in the Stanford Eye Clinic. By recording and studying eye behavior, Dr. Liao's team can decipher the most important contributors to visual disability, which will her her design the most appropriate treatment and visual rehabilitation for each patient.

Excellent experience!
Dr. Liao has my total confidence. She is an outstanding Doctor.
Amazing doctor! Took plenty of time to deal with my difficult case. Thank you!
Dr. Liao not only helped me with my eye issues but also gave me guidance to help me with my emotional issues too.
Dr. Liao is superb! She is the most caring and compassionate Physician that I have encountered in the Stanford Health Care system. She takes time to really talk with me and she is very thorough and forthright in explaining her diagnoses and finding regarding my health. Her compassionate approach to patient care sets her apart. Her approach is the closest to what I would consider "holistic" that I have found in the Stanford Health Care system. She interacts with me as a unique and individual human being, and not a commercial transaction.
I've been sick and searching for four years. Working with the chronic fatigue department is the best experience, I have ever had and it has given me hope. I EVEN bout a stanford hat and wear it around when I am out.
Dr. Liao really helped me whenever I was really worried of my illness. She really reassured me that everything would be fine and helped eased my anxiety.
The three students took too much of the time and my energy, I felt Dr. Liao was under pressure to get my appt. over with and move onto the next patient.
Dr. Liao is an excellent, knowledgeable doctor. I would say she is one of the best.
Dr. Liao was great! she spent lots of time with us helping us understand what was happening. no clear answers when we left but she was going to talk to my other doctors first.
Dr. Liao is wonderful.
Dr. Liao is unique in her compassion, empathy and ability to connect as a physician across cultural differences. She is thorough and very forthcoming in explaining information regarding my health. She demonstrates care for me as a whole and unique person as well as a patient.
Outstanding patient service!
Doctor spent plenty of time for discussion. Was very good about wanting to know all of my questions and answering them.
Dr. Liao is an amazing doctor! The knowledge, level of care, and friendliness are unmatched.
Dr. Liao has a wonderful "bedside manner". My appointments are often delayed but when she sees me she always takes her time and makes me feel important to her, a great doctor.
I could have received similar care from a local provider in a much more efficient manner.
Very thorough explanation of the problem and discussion of where I was and prognosis of my future.
Great experience.
Had excellent experience - She has given me hope in addressing my health concern -
Dr. is very busy and rushed.
Dr. Liao is the most thorough, caring and compassionate physician I've known.
