Shazib Haq, O.D.

  • Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology, School of Medicine
  • Casey Eye Institute, School of Medicine


Shazib Haq, O.D. grew up in Southern California, spending a few years in the UK as well. He attended UC Davis and graduated with a BS in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior. He then attended UC Berkeley School of Optometry for his doctorate degree. At graduation he received the Golden Retinoscope award as well as the Beta Sigma Kappa Silver medal, two high honors given to graduating class members.

Next, Dr. Haq completed a one year residency at the Baltimore VA, where he gained significant experience managing anterior and posterior segment ocular disease. He also had the opportunity to rotate through subspecialties at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins, gaining experience in the cornea, neuro-ophthalmology, and retina services. Following this experience, he added on a second post-graduate year of training, something that few optometrists do. He completed this at the Casey Eye Institute, specializing in Medical Contact Lenses.

Stemming from these unique training environments, Dr. Haq is well-versed in ocular disease and practices full-scope medical optometry. He sees patients with a variety of conditions, for vison and medical eye exams, as well as fitting standard and medical contact lenses. He has experience managing patients with complex cornea and anterior segments with medical contact lenses, including keratoconus, corneal transplants, pediatric and adult aphakia, trauma, and severe dry eyes. He also sees pediatric patients in these settings, and can perform myopia management care. He has more recently been trained on the light-adjustable-lens cataract surgery system.
