Collagen cross linking is an important new treatment that stops keratoconus from getting worse. Cross linking increases the strength of the collagen in keratoconic corneas by 3–4 times. It sis carried out with some of the best equipment available today.
An effective treatment after cornea shape is normalised
These are lenses put over the normally present lenses. They work together with the eye’s natural lens which is not removed. In a normal cornea it is capable of correcting even the most severe short sight and astigmatism. In keratoconus it is most effective after collagen cross linking, laser or rings implantation have been done to stabilise the cornea and normalise its shape as much as possible
Contact lenses do not change the keratoconus, but cover the protrusion on the cornea so neutralising it. Normal vision is restored to all except advanced cases. Lifelong wear is necessary.
to reduce excessive curvature in advanced keratoconus
These are small pieces of plastic inserted into a channel created in the cornea to stretch it and bring it back to near its original configuration. They can’t be felt and require no maintenance. They are normally invisible except on close inspection when they look like a contact lens on the eye
A long-established treatment for the most severe cases
The centre of the patient’s own cornea is completely removed and replaced by another corneal transplant. The transplant is sutured in place of the conical cornea. This is the longest-established treatment for severe keratoconus.
Laser treatment can be used to treat keratoconus in some rare occcasions by using a cornea topographer to guide the laser, or what is called topography-guided treatment. This is an important development, but Dr Ahmad Khalil reserves it to very rare cases, where the cornea is stable, with a minimal refractive error untreatable by other means.
Thank you for your prompt response and the help that you gave to my eyes. You always have a quick solution to any problem. What an excellent level of service for your patients!
I wish to convey my most sincere gratitude for the opportunity to have you perform the Lasik procedure for me. I could not have imagined any better care, patience and understanding, pre and post surgery, than that which I received from your team..

I can really recommend Dr Khalil, he did an amazing work on my eyes and really changed my life, I wasn’t expecting such great results and my only regret is that I should have done it before! Thank you so much Doctor for what you did to me.
I would like to thank Dr Ahmed for the amazing treatment while doing my surgery. You are the most trustful doctor one can ever meet. I can't find words to describe how much you were caring , patient and helpful.
Years after having her congenital glaucoma operated and treated successfully by Dr Khalil, Menna; one best friend of the Clinic, is paying a visit to her friend Ahmad Khalil with a present she carefully chose..
I was really impressed with the personal and caring approach, from my initial consultation, through the Lasik surgery, and afterwards from Dr. Khalil. I would definitely recommend Dr. Khalil’s clinic to anyone who is considering LASIK treatment and is concerned about getting a high quality service and personal approach
Thank you very much for your rapid response and having done the operation in such a short time
Highly appreciate the wonderful unobstructed vision, very necessary to my diving career.
