Dr Hosseini grew up locally in Montgomery County, Maryland and currently lives in Rockville, MD.

A strong believer in preventive health care, he strives to provide everyday preventive care with his patients.
Dr. Hosseini earned his Doctor of Optometry degree from the Pennsylvania College of Optometry, where he was awarded High Honors and membership in the Beta Sigma Kappa International Optometric Honor Society. His passion for treating patients with Keratoconus with hard to fit contact lenses is rooted at home where his father suffered from advanced keratoconus. Seeing his father struggle with his Keratoconus growing up was difficult and he determined at a young age that one of his life goals would be to help those who suffered from Keratoconus improve their vision and enhance their day to day activities and lifestyle. He is experiencd in treating dry eye and allergies in patients and treats patients from as young as 4 years old that not rubbing their eyes will decrease their chance of getting Keratoconus.
Dr Hosseini’s clinical training included ocular disease diagnosis and management at the Baltimore Veterans Hospital, low vision and rehabilitation at The Eye Institutes in Philadelphia, primary care and anterior segment management at Visionary Eye Doctors, posterior segment management at Select Eye Care and specialty contact lenses at Eye Doctors of Washington.
