Dr. Mohammadi has lectured internationally and has taught refractive surgery to other physicians. Dr. Mohammadi continues to achieve higher than average rates of patient satisfaction due to his conservative and honest approach to each and every case. Surgery is not recommended for every patient, and many factors other than visual acuity need to be considered. Some of these include age, occupation, and patient expectation. Dr. Mohammadi carefully discusses all of these factors with perspective patients, as well as the potential risks of any refractive surgery.
