Pre hearing information
The tribunal will enquire into the allegation that, on 13 February 2015, Dr Al Ahmar performed a right sided phacoemulsification cataract extraction (‘the Procedure’) on Patient A. It is alleged that Dr Al Ahmar placed a one-piece intraocular lens (‘IOL’) in the sulcus when it was not clinically indicated and failed to make adequate records. It is further alleged that Dr Ahmar failed to ensure that Patient A was reviewed the day after the Procedure.
This reflects the allegation as it stands at the start of the hearing. The allegation may be amended as the hearing proceeds and when findings of fact are made by the tribunal.
All decisions are published online within 28 days of the conclusion of the hearing.
