Dr. Ahmad's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Ahmad "Sumayya Ahmad, MD, is Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. She received her medical degree from the Yale University School of Medicine and completed a residency in ophthalmology at Johns Hopkins /The Wilmer Eye Institute. She went on to complete a fellowship in cornea and external disease at the The Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, the #1 eye hospital in the country. Her clinical focus includes cataract surgery, full thickness and partial thickness corneal transplantation including DSAEK and DALK, laser vision correction, dry eye, corneal ulcers, and ocular surface disease. Her research interests include evaluating outcomes in keratoprosthesis, ocular surface disease and dry eye disease. Throughout her training, Dr. Ahmad was the recipient of several competitive awards for research. She received the Johns Hopkins Center for Global Health Travel Grant which funded her work at the Aravind Eye Hospital in Tamil Nadu, India. There she evaluated patients and provided manual small incision (SICS) cataract surgery to underserved patients, many of whom had advanced cataracts. In 2016, she was a recipient of the Heed Ophthalmic Fellowship for her achievements in eye research, a national award given to less than 10 residents annually. Dr. Ahmad is a member of the Cornea Society and the American Academy of Ophthalmology. Having provided medical care in Thailand, Argentina and India, Dr. Ahmad respects and addresses the cultural differences in views toward illness and treatment. She feels privileged to be able to use her skills to restore vision, making a powerful and immediate impact on the quality of a patient's life."
