Tamer Hadi, MD, came to Eye Medical Clinic with an impressive resume. With undergraduate and master’s work in bioengineering and biomedical engineering, Dr. Hadi spent several years working in orthopedic research and development before deciding he wanted to be more involved in patient care. He applied to medical school and the rest is history!
With the same passion, excellence and problem-solving mindset that exemplified his earlier training, Dr. Hadi graduated with, not just a medical degree, but also a Ph.D., from the Medical College of Virginia. He didn’t necessarily enter medical school knowing he wanted to specialize in ophthalmology, but he talks about a tremendously impactful two-week rotation in ophthalmology. It was life-changing and inspiring, and he knew then it was what he wanted to do professionally.
Residency training in ophthalmology at Case Western Reserve University Medical School in Ohio led to a rigorous fellowship in vitreal-retinal surgery at the University of California in Irvine, California. Dr. Hadi joined the EMC family in August of 2020. You can see his full bio here.
I came to medicine a little later in life, but I have never regretted it. I loved my research work, but it felt a little disconnected from being able to help people in a very tangible way. All my background has now come together and allowed me to apply everything I have learned to improve the quality of life for my patients.

At EMC, we’ve always focused on being a trusted practice that offers comprehensive eye care for patients in every stage of life. In our 70+ years, we’ve served generations of families in and around the San Jose area. We’re excited to add this powerhouse retina specialist to the team to expand our range of services even more.
Dr. Hadi truly enjoys being a doctor and a surgeon, and he especially loves interacting with his patients.
I love seeing the immediate gratitude patients experience when they discover their vision has been restored.

Outside of work, Dr. Hadi is a husband and father of three young children. He enjoys staying active, hiking and spending time at the beach with his lively family. Together, they all enjoy working in their family vegetable garden and are expecting a bumper crop of cilantro this season!
