by Amy Lane
The team of specialists continues to grow at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute in Naples.
Dr. Mohamed S. Sayed, a native of Egypt, obtained his medical degree from the University of Alexandria. He then trained in ophthalmology at the Joint Residency Training Program of the Western Region, Saudi Arabia and is certified by the Saudi Board of Ophthalmology.
Trained as an anterior segment surgeon, Dr. Sayed has obtained fellowship certifications from the Royal College of Surgeons of the United Kingdom, as well as the International Council of Ophthalmology, United Kingdom.
Dr. Sayed has completed fellowships in glaucoma, as well as pediatric ophthalmology and strabismus at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, and is one of the few dual fellowship-trained ophthalmologists in these two subspecialties.
He will be joining the team at the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute Naples facility where he will offer his patients of all ages the most advanced anterior segment, cataract and glaucoma treatments, including laser treatment, minimally invasive glaucoma surgery and surgery for childhood glaucoma.
He has a particular interest in complex cataract surgery, premium intraocular implants and advanced ocular imaging. Dr. Sayed will also treat adult and pediatric patients with strabismus and ocular misalignment disorders and children with amblyopia.
He is an active researcher with numerous peer reviewed publications and book chapters to his credit, and has presented his work in national and international meetings.
Outside the clinic, Dr. Sayed enjoys traveling, exploring different cultures, and is an avid reader. He adores spending quality time with his wife, Sherine, and son, Adham.
Dr. Sayed is a true professional with a great work ethic. He is also a great surgeon. I feel safe under his expert care.
