He has done several medical missions in Honduras, Peru and Nicaragua performing strabismus surgery on patients without the financial means to have it done otherwise.

He recently joined UC San Diego, Department of Pediatric Ophthalmology, as an Associate Clinical Professor. 

He specializes in Pediatric Ophthalmology and Adult Re-alignment for strabismus.   His clinical interests include childhood eye misalignments and disorders, adult eye movement disorders, teaching, mentoring and research opportunities. Dr. Movaghar enjoys traveling with his family, having been to 22 different countries, and is excited to make San Diego his new home with his wife and two children.
