Dr. Ahmad graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas summa cum laude with a degree in electrical engineering. He then worked for several years as an engineer, but eventually pursued a career in medicine. He completed medical school at the University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, followed by ophthalmology residency at the prestigious Cole Eye Institute of the Cleveland Clinic. Given an interest in providing care for complex pathologies, he then completed a vitreoretinal diseases and surgery fellowship at The Retina Institute of St. Louis.
Following fellowship. Dr. Ahmad returned to his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio and led the busy retina service as its primary surgeon in the department of ophthalmology at University Hospitals / Case Western Reserve University. Over time, however, he felt a need to dedicate more time to family and this prompted a move into private practice at the Virginia Eye Institute in Richmond, Virginia. After several years in private practice, he decided to return to academic medical practice in order to also teach others and to pursue research interests in big data/artificial intelligence. As such, he joined the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network in summer of 2019 with a secondary appointment at Marquette University’s School of Biomedical Engineering.
He is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and is an active member of the American Society of Retina Specialists. He has participated in the training of a number of ophthalmologists and was given the 2015 “Teacher of the Year” award in the department of ophthalmology at Case Western Reserve University. He has also authored several dozen peer-reviewed papers, book chapters, instructive videos, and online articles regarding vitreoretinal diseases and surgery.
He currently sees patients at the Eye Institute on the Froedtert Hospital campus, as well as at the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Westbrook Health Center.
