Dr. Naqvi is a native of Shelby, NC. She is married with two children and enjoys cooking, reading and travel. She pursued Ophthalmology because she fell in love with the anatomy of the eye and how everything works together to help you see. When asked why she enjoys seeing children and adults, she stated, “I enjoy working with all types of people, each is so different and can make a day very engaging.” Her reason for joining MidWest Eye Center: “I wanted to be a part of a practice in Cincinnati, where patient care is the primary focus.
Dr. Naqvi feels passionately about taking the time to listen to patients & their concerns regards to their sight. Many times patients come in with real fears & concerns about going blind, and it is our job to help ease their worries & help them through that. So many times people come in fearful & leave with a smile on their face. That’s what it’s all about… helping people see better.
In addition, seeing kids in the day brings a different light. Children are so innocent & it takes winning their trust first to be able to get close enough to get an eye exam. We have to remember what it was like to be a kid at one time too- and it’s not that easy to forget how fear can feel very big as a small child. Not to mention, parents need to have understanding & reassurance about what’s going on with their child’s eyes. Dr. Naqvi also has privileges at Cincinnati Childrens Hospital Medical Center where she operates on children who need eye surgery.
