I am born in 1979 in Herat, Afghanistan. I have graduated from high school in 1997 and entered to Herat Medicine faculty. I have graduated from Medical faculty in 2005 and in the same year I entered to Noor Eye Hospital as an ophthalmology resident and in International Assistance Mission(IAM) NGO as Post Graduate Program. I have been trained in Ophthalmology under supervision of Dr. Roger Dethlefs, an Australian Ophthalmologist, some of this period (14 months). In 2009 I participate in DO (Diploma of Ophthalmology) Exam with Internal and External Examiners from outside of Afghanistan and I could pass this exam and could get my specialty in Ophthalmology from Ministry of Health of Afghanistan.
I have attend to All India Ophthalmological Society (AIOS) in 2008. In Pakistan Ophthalmological Society 2012 and in Iranian Ophthalmological Society (IrSO) in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2014.
Now I am doing general ophthalmology and able to do the following surgeries: Cataract (Phacoemulsification, SICS & ECCE), Trabeculectomy (Filtering), Strabismus, Traumatic ocular repair, ...
Unfortunately we can not do sub-specialty surgeries for our people in Afghanistan in many areas of the ophthalmology. I hope our ophthalmology grows step by step and to have sub-specialty programs inside Afghanistan.
