Dr Faisal Naqadan

Dr Faisal Naqadan is a Consultant Ophthalmologist at Hamad Medical Corporation, Qatar’s leading not-for-profit health care provider.

Having begun his training at the University of Münster Medical School in Germany, he later moved to the University of Heidelberg, where he finished his residency in ophthalmology. He received a Master of Science at Danube University Krems in Austria, before obtaining a postgraduate diploma in cataract & refractive surgery at the University of Ulster in the UK. After which, he completed his fellowship in Ophthalmic Plastic & reconstructive Surgery at Uldge university in Bursa in Turkey.

Faisal has been a keen and vocal supporter of our initiative, Qatar Creating Vision, since 2017. In 2018, he travelled to India on behalf of the Qatar Fund for Development and Qatar’s Ministry of Public Health, to witness our sight saving programmes first-hand. He was also part of the team that hosted a preferred practices medical workshop on-board our Flying Eye Hospital, in Qatar, during Doha Healthcare week in November of the same year.

In 2019, we were lucky enough to welcome him back to another programme, this time in Vietnam, where he observed a Orbis Flying Eye Hospital programme, discovered how they run, and learnt how vital skills are passed on to local ophthalmic teams.

Dr Faisal discusses his experience in India in 2018

Dr Faisal Naqadan

I trained in oph­thal­mol­o­gy in Ger­many and I work in Qatar, both coun­tries where we eas­i­ly have access to excel­lent eye care. What was clear from my vis­it to India and what I learnt about Qatar Cre­at­ing Vision, was that this pro­gramme and Orbis’s part­ners real­ly are giv­ing the best eye care to chil­dren that may not oth­er­wise be able to access it.”
