Dr Kawji attended the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston for his Internal Medicine training. Next, he joined the team at Doheny Eye Institute & the University of Southern California (USC) for a clinical research fellowship in Ophthalmology. Subsequently, he was granted a residency in Ophthalmology at the prestigious Indiana University program, one of the largest training programs in the country.
This was followed by a 2-year fellowship in Retina & Vitreous Surgery at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, where he worked with renowned ophthalmologists and retina surgeons and gained extensive experience in medical and surgical retina. Then, Dr Kawji returned to Southern California where he has been in private practice since 2013.
Dr. Kawji is the only retina specialist in Orange County who is double board-certified in Ophthalmology & Internal Medicine. This unique combination enables him to have a better understanding of the overall health of his patients and how different systemic diseases interact with eye health.
