Dr. Maida Ahmad is a certified and residency-trained optometrist who specializes in medical and comprehensive eye care of the eye, including the diagnosis and management of diabetic eye disease, dry eyes, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and co-management of ocular surgeries, among other anterior/posterior segment conditions of the eye.
Dr. Ahmad grew up in Canton, Georgia and earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology from Emory University in 2016. She then earned her Doctor of Optometry degree from Nova Southeastern University College of Optometry in 2021. While at NSUCO, she was an active member of the Student Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (SVOSH) Organization and Nova Optometric Practice Management Association (NOPMA). She rotated through Eye Centers of South Florida and Milan Eye Center, where she was able to observe various ocular surgeries, gain experience managing a wide array of ocular conditions, like glaucoma and macular degeneration, and attend lectures from some of the most accomplished ophthalmologists in the country.
After graduating from optometry school in 2021, Dr. Ahmad pursued and completed a residency in Ocular Disease and Surgical Co-Management at Milan Eye Center. She had the privilege to train under ophthalmologists of many specialties, observe ocular surgeries of varying complexity, supervise and teach student externs, give and attend numerous lectures, and refine her diagnostic and clinical skills by treating and managing both highly rare and common ocular conditions.
Having had a rewarding experience at Milan Eye Center during her externship and residency, it was an easy decision for Dr. Ahmad to stay on at Milan Eye Center full-time. She is looking forward to serving the hometown community she grew up in and hopes to educate her patients on the significance of ocular health and preventative eye care. Dr. Ahmad is also a member of the American Optometric Association and Georgia Optometric Association.
In Dr. Ahmad’s spare time, she enjoys reading, trying new restaurants, and spending time with family and friends.
