Dr. David Muller: No Straight Career Paths

Dr. David Muller is what Joe Mullings calls “The Godfather of Ophthalmology” but his career path wasn’t always clear. Cab driver, construction and other jobs led David back to school and onto the path that would ultimately create the serial entrepreneur he is today.

David Muller, a successful serial entrepreneur in Ophthalmology and the CEO of Allotex, opened up his home to Joe Mullings sharing stories on how his career began in construction and as a cab driver.
He ultimately went back to school to obtain his PhD and ended up being the driving force behind Summit Technology (LASIK), where he led the team that brought the 1st FDA approved laser vision correction to market.
Currently, in his latest venture with Allotex, he is pioneering the use of corneal allograft tissue to treat presbyopia, therefore reducing or eliminating the need to wear reading glasses.
David’s story reminds us all that careers don’t have to be in a straight line.
