Syed Ahmad, MD
An Eye for Excellence
It has often been said that people spend more time looking at your eyes than anything else. When it comes to your eyes, you need a surgeon you can trust. Dr. Ahmad has built his practice on solid principles with one thing in mind; you, the patient. After completing a residency in ophthalmology, he completed additional fellowship training as an Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. Also called Oculoplastics, this highly specialized field requires extensive training in aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery of the face, eyelids, orbits and lacrimal system. There are only a few hundred doctors that have devoted themselves to this specialty throughout the entire United States.
Dr. Ahmad has spent years of specialized training to perform procedures on the delicate tissues in and around the eyes. His ultimate goal is to help you attain the look and confidence you desire while preserving vision and optimal function of the eyelids. Besides cosmetic surgery and procedures, he also provides expertise in medical and surgical management of disorders of the eye, eyelid, orbit and the face. He believes each patient is an individual with their own unique needs and works to develop a personalized treatment plan while helping you explore all of your options. Dr. Ahmad is committed to quality care in a compassionate setting and has published numerous articles, contributed chapters and given talks at national meetings. In addition, he devotes his time to resident education by mentoring at the medical school.
