Dr. Ahmed appreciates the cutting-edge technology available at Phoenix Children's because he believes it enables him to safely deliver better visual outcomes to his patients.

He then completed a pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus fellowship at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.

Dr. Ahmed is affiliated with numerous professional groups, including the American Board of Ophthalmology, the Arizona Ophthalmological Society and the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus.

In addition to his practice, Dr. Ahmed is an assistant professor at the University of Arizona College of Medicine-Phoenix. He also serves as a reviewer for the American Journal of Ophthalmology.

Dr. Ahmed has been named to America's Best Doctors - Top Pediatric Ophthalmologist and Strabismus Specialist since 2020.

To further understanding in the field of ophthalmology, Dr. Ahmed has taken part in research and has had multiple publications covering a wide range of pediatric eye health topics.

Ophthalmology was not a field that Dr. Ahmed had considered (or even heard of) until he volunteered at an eye hospital and school for the blind in the mountains of Northern Pakistan. He saw firsthand how much of an impact treatment had on the patients' lives. "Restoring vision to children is one of the most gratifying experiences a person can have," he explains.

Dr. Ahmed is dedicated to helping patients have the best vision possible - now and for the rest of their lives. "I want patients and their families to know that I care about them first. Then, I use my knowledge and skills to provide the highest quality of care," he explains.

Outside of his practice, Dr. Ahmed enjoys spending time with his family and friends as well as volunteering at his mosque and with community projects. He also loves to travel and practice Brazilian jiujitsu.
