About Dr. Mohammed
Dr. Andrew Mohammed was born in Washington, DC, where he lived until he was 12. His family then moved to the Virginia's Northern Neck and he grew up along the region's rivers and the Chesapeake Bay.

Dr. Mohammed's lifelong fascination with science in general, specifically the structure and function of the human body, inspired him to pursue a medical career. He developed an early interest in the eye and the sense of vision itself. Dr. Mohammed enjoys the anatomic complexity of the eye and the varied modalities which ophthalmologists employ to enhance and preserve vision.

Dr. Mohammed's patients describe him as a good listener and a thorough clinician. At each visit, he makes it a point to fully answer his patient's questions and to provide a clear plan for the future.

His primary interest is cataract surgery. He employs modern surgical techniques, including topical ("no injection") anesthesia and small-incision ("no stitch") procedures. He has extensive experience utilizing toric lens implants for the correction of astigmatism (blurring caused by irregularity in the front of the eye) and multifocal lens implants for the correction of presbyopia (blurred near vision due to loss of focusing ability). His cataract surgeries and other more extensive procedures are performed at the Emerald Coast Surgery Center in Fort Walton Beach, where he has access to the Alcon Centurion, the most advanced cataract surgical device in use today.

His ophthalmology practice in Fort Walton Beach centers on providing ethical patient care. Dr. Mohammed believes that the "art" of medicine is the ability to bridge the gap between providing excellent care and communicating with the patient. He strived to build a genuine connection with his patients and to enable each individual to be a partner in his or her own care.

Dr. Mohammed and his wife Sophia are proud to call Florida's Emerald Coast home. In their free time, they enjoy spending time in and on the water, eating local seafood, traveling, hiking, biking, reading, watching movies and caring for their three feathered "children".
