Bio

Dr. Kamran Riaz is a Clinical Associate Professor and Director of Medical Student Research at the Dean McGee Eye Institute (University of Oklahoma). His clinical and surgical practices focus on cornea, external disease, anterior segment, cataract, and refractive surgery.  

Dr. Riaz completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he was admitted into the prestigious Guaranteed Professional Program Admissions (GPPA). He received dual bachelor’s degrees in economics and history and graduated magna cum laude with the highest possible distinction. Dr. Riaz attended medical school at the UIC College of Medicine. He completed his ophthalmology residency at Northwestern University, where he served as chief resident during his senior year and received the “Best Resident Research” Award. He completed an additional year of fellowship training in Cornea, External Disease, and Refractive Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. 

Dr. Riaz’s career in academic ophthalmology began at the University of Chicago, where he served as an Assistant Professor and Director of Refractive Surgery in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Science. During his time there, he restarted the refractive surgery service, inaugurated a region-wide optics course, and brought many new surgical procedures to the department. For his efforts, Dr. Riaz was recognized by the hospital administration in May 2018 at the “Best Practices Forum” for restoring vision in a patient who was blind for 38 years. He received the “Best Teacher Award” in 2018 from the University of Chicago ophthalmology residents and the “Teacher of the Year” award in 2019, as voted by residents from all six programs in the Chicago area. 

Since arriving at Dean McGee in 2019, he has had a regional referral base for managing a spectrum of conditions, focusing on managing complications from cataract surgery, secondary IOL surgery, and complex corneal surgery. Dr. Riaz has authored over 70 peer-reviewed publications, 20 book chapters, and 80 presentations at national and international ophthalmology meetings. He has been an invited lecturer, surgical wet-lab instructor, and visiting professor at numerous conferences and multiple academic institutions nationally and internationally. He has several leadership positions, including serving on the ASCRS Young Eye Surgeon (YES) Clinical Committee, an oral board examiner for the American Board of Ophthalmology, as the Chair of the BCSC Optics textbook, and serving on the Editorial Board for several ophthalmology journals. In April 2022, he was awarded the Aesculapian Teaching Award from the OU College of Medicine – the first ophthalmology faculty to ever receive this award since its inception in 1962. In April 2023, he was recognized by Castle Connolly as one of the top 21 AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage) Doctors nationally. 

Dr. Riaz is passionate about resident and fellow education, especially in optics and refractive surgery. He teaches national board review courses, serves as an optics section editor for the most popular website for ophthalmology exam preparation among trainees, and is on the editorial committee for the BCSC Optics textbook. He is the Chief Editor of a recently released Optics textbook, Optics for the New Millennium (Sept 2022), a comprehensive resource combining optics information needed for exams, clinical practice, and surgical preparation, presented in an engaging style. He is Associate Editor for a forthcoming atlas on anterior segment OCT in clinical practice. 

In his free time, Dr. Riaz enjoys history documentaries, football, basketball, and jazz music. He and his wife, Sanaa, also a physician, are blessed with three beautiful children. Dr. Riaz is fluent in Spanish, Urdu, Hindi, and Arabic.

Patient Testimonials

Dear Dr. Riaz,

I am writing to thank you for doing such a great job with my cataract surgery. I realize now how impaired my vision had become and it’s wonderful to be able to see again! Thank you! As you know, your were the fifth doctor I had seen, one of which was at Bascom Palmer, and really the only one who actually took time to talk to me. You were honest about the expectations and could understand why I was so concerned about the risk involved since I have amblyopia and only one good eye.

I also want to let you know how nice everyone is in your office and at Dean McGee. Lisa, Dawn & Denise were always so helpful and the techs that took measurements, the women at the front desk, all were very pleasant and never made me feel as if I was a bother if I had a question. Everyone at the surgery center made me comfortable. Carla, the nurses and anesthesiologists, and you, all helped me relax when I was very nervous.

This whole experience had me frightened and turned out to be the best surgery ever!!! I was prepared to lose my close up vision but I even have that.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

The outcome for me has been so good and I realize how much my cataracts were limiting my life now, it’s great to be back to normal.

Sincerely,

—Denise Pasch
