Our Core Values




About Us

Our journey began in Nigeria over 30 years ago, when a young professor inundated with patients suffering from onchocerciasis dedicated himself to alleviating ophthalmic ailments. After moving to California a few years later, Dr. A. Mateen Ahmed founded New World Medical (NWM) and introduced the Ahmed® Glaucoma Valve to the world.

New World Medical was founded to Benefit Humanity. Our firm works to live up to this lofty goal by developing, manufacturing, and marketing cutting-edge medical devices intended to alleviate the suffering of glaucoma patients globally. Dedicated sales representatives market NWM’s flagship products, the Ahmed Glaucoma Valve and the Kahook Dual Blade®, throughout the United States. Internationally, the company utilizes an exclusive distribution network to reach patients in need.
