Dr Uddin earned a bachelors degree in Molecular Biosciences from University of Kansas in 2005 and graduated with clinical honors from the Illinois College of Optometry in 2011. Dr Uddin joined Family Eye Clinic in 2014 and specializes in pediatrics, sports vision, CRT (Corneal Reshaping Therapy) and ocular diseases such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. Dr Uddin chose optometry as a career because he realized the importance of having clear and comfortable vision as he grew up playing basketball and baseball.
Dr Uddin has extensive training in co-management of Refractive Surgery, Vision Therapy and Sports Vision Training from his time spent in private practice and Veterans Hospital rotations during his 4th year of school at ICO . He believes it is important for all children to have routine eye exams to assess their binocular vision skills.Many visual issues can cause children to struggle in school and go undetected even if a child can see “20/20”. These visual disorders are disguised as “learning disabilities” when they are actually fully correctable with glasses and vision therapy. Sports specific vision training is also used to train the eye muscles to work more efficiently and enable athletes to make faster and more accurate decisions on the field.
Dr Uddin is a member of the Colorado Optometric Association, the American Optometric Association, and SVOSH (student volunteer optometric services to humanity).
In his free time, he enjoys outdoor activities such as skiing and hiking, along with traveling and spending time with his wife, Krista.
