Ophthalmologist and Vitreo-Retinal Surgeon

Dr. Asad Movahedan is a board-certified ophthalmologist and vitreoretinal surgeon. He is an expert in the diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of diseases of the vitreous and retina.

Dr. Movahedan's area of interest is the management of complex retinal detachments. Through research, he aims to develop novel treatments for recurrent retinal detachment by understanding and preventing proliferative vitreoretinopathy. He also holds research interests in the role of gut microbiota in the development of age-related macular degeneration, the most common cause of blindness in the western world after 55 years of age. At UTHealth Houston, he has initiated a project to use big data in ophthalmic research by integrating de-identified electronic health data with other academic institutions, creating a large database to study a variety of ophthalmic diseases, including vitreoretinal disease.

Dr. Movahedan is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Association for Research in Vision Science and Ophthalmology.

Collaboration with Referring Physicians

Physicians at the Robert Cizik Eye Clinic engage referring physicians in the care of their patients, keeping them informed about patient progress throughout the evaluation and treatment process. After a patient’s treatment, referring physicians receive a summary and a plan for follow-up. Our physicians encourage continued communication about each patient.
