He then worked for several years as an engineer but eventually pursued a career in medicine. He completed medical school at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, followed by a residency in ophthalmology at the prestigious Cole Eye Institute of the Cleveland Clinic.

Following fellowship. Dr. Ahmad returned to his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio, and led the busy retina service as its primary surgeon in the Department of Ophthalmology at University Hospitals / Case Western Reserve University. Over time, however, he felt a need to dedicate more time to family and this prompted a move into private practice at the Virginia Eye Institute in Richmond, Virginia.
After several years in private practice, he decided to return to academic medical practice in order to focus again on teaching and research interests in big data/artificial intelligence. As such, he joined the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin health network in the summer of 2019 with a secondary appointment at Marquette University’s School of Biomedical Engineering.

Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses, though their focus is on medical/surgical eye disease. Ophthalmology subspecialists, such as retinal specialists, are often more focused on their work and may or may not also provide routine eye care.
