Dr. Nasir's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Nasir "Nasir earned his medical degree from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where he ranked first in his class. He was honored as a recipient of the Lange Medical Publications Award. Following his internship at Baylor College of Medicine, he completed his residency at the University of California, San Francisco, a well known center for research and clinical practice. Dr. Nasir pursued post-graduate work as a Fellow in Vitreoretinal Research and Clinical Studies at Duke University, where he also trained with Dr. Robert Machemer, who invented the first vitrectomy machine and is considered the father of modern vitreous surgery. He was chosen as a Heed Ophthalmic Foundation Fellow and was the recipient of a grant for the Research to Prevent Blindness Foundation. Dr. Nasir is a diplomate of the American Board of Ophthalmology, a member of the American Society of Retina Specialists, the American Academy of Ophthamology, and the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology. Dr. Nasir is a co-founder of the California Retina Research Foundation and has been the principal investigator or coinvestigator for numerous national clinical trials at California Retina Consultants. His research interests include choroidal neovascularization associated with age-related macular degeneration, as well as adjunctive pharmacological therapies used in the surgeries for diabetic retinopathy and proliferative vitreoretinopathy. The results of his work have been reported in distinguished journals such as the American Journal of Ophthalmology, Ophthalmology, the British Journal of Ophthalmology and Retina. He and his colleagues at California Retina Consultants published the first series of patients treated with Avastin for age-related macular degeneration and subsequent peer reviewed articles for the use of Avastin for other retinal diseases. Dr. Nasir is a representative and a past vice president of the California Academy of Ophthalmology as well as a member of S.E.E. International and with his colleagues regularly train ophthalmologists from developing countries. Clinically, Dr. Nasir is particularly interested in age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, complex retinal detachments and macular surgery.
