Laser Systms used for LASIk
You will have your LASIK vision correction using the best and most advanced technology, and experience
Dr Khalil is committed to providing his patients with the newest and safest state-of-the-art technologies. He offers LASIK and laser vision correction using a choice of 2 of the best recognised systems in the world today, the Allegretto Wavelight with its wavefront optimised technology, and the Visx CustomVue system with its wavefront fully customized treatment. Our high tech refractive surgery instrumentation, including the more accurate IntraLase laser in combination with either of these systems ensures our patients that they will have the highest-quality laser vision correction available.
Pre-operative analysis of your eye visual system is carried out with the Pentacam and/or the Wavescan systems, both are advanced state of the art systems for evaluation and detection of the minutest detail in your eye system, and fashioning treatment accordingly.
The iLASIK system, Femto-LASIK, Blade-Free Intralasik
The IntraLase is the first of two lasers in the iLASIK procedure, and replaces the traditional blade or ‘microkeratome’ to create a flap in the cornea (the surface of the eye).
in the iLASIK procedure, Dr Khalil first performs blade-free corneal flap using the advanced femto laser (Intralase, left side of the picture), he then rotates the bed to the excimer laser system (Visx S4, right side of the picture) where he performs custom, point by point treatment for your visual error based on the extensive data obtained before operation by the iDesign system (right side of the picture)
Advanced OCULUS PENTACAM Evaluation of the Cornea
This innovative device allows performing various corneal measurements like thickness (pachymetry), as well as anterior and posterior corneal topography and analysis of the evolution of keratoconus, collecting the data required for refractive surgery in the pre- and postoperative period (LASIK and PRK)
ALLEGRETTO WAVE® PLATFORM TECHNOLOGY
With its ultrafast treatment, WaveLight technology is the 1st to show an improvement in optical performance resulting in a better quality of vision. Taking human sight beyond 20/20 is possible. The ALLEGRETTO WAVE® Eye-Q brings you closer to achieving your desire for perfect vision. This technology, built by WaveLight, represents a new generation in laser vision technology.
The Wavefront OptimizedT treatment considers the unique curvature and biomechanics of the eye, preserving the quality of vision and addressing the spherical distortions that can induce glare and may affect night vision.

Dr Khalil Eye Clinic Specialties
A wide range of eye care procedures is offered at the highest standards at Dr Khalil Eye Clinic
When you come to Dr Khalil Eye Clinic, you will have a full eye consultation, with comprehensive evaluation and discussion regarding your eye condition. Dr Ahmad Khalil will then give you advice on recommended investigations if needed and best course of management
Modern cataract surgery is truly a miracle of modern medicine. Thanks to huge leaps in both technique and technology, it has reached a new pinnacle of success. If your vision has faded as a result of cataracts, your likelihood of recovering more youthful vision with an operation to remove the cataract
In recent years, the tools available for treating glaucoma, has undergone a phenomenal expansion, thanks to the development of new medicines, and new surgical techniques and devices. All has contributed immensely to the fight against this impeccable disease
Dr Khalil has been fighting congenital glaucoma since 1998. He successfully operated more than 1200 cases, one of the highest figures internationally for this rare disease....As he is pioneering a successful surgical technique for the management of the difficult glaucoma in the newborn and infants
Today’s active lifestyle demands for visual performance that we can rely on, night and day, free of glassed and contact lenses. Some professions simply can not go well with glasses or contact lenses, like pilots, professional sportspeople and others. LASIK can offer glasses free excellent vision to most refractive vision errors
For higher levels of short- or long-sightedness or if the cornea is not suitable for LASIK vision correction, phakic lens implantation become the procedure of choice. Though the costier, the ICL has been demonstrated to obtain better visual outcomes compared to Lasik for higher degrees of errors
Management of the conical cornea or keratoconus has made revolutionary leaps in past few years, mainly by the introduction of corneal cross linking (CXL), new surgical modalities like intra-corneal rings, and deep lamellar keratoplasty or corneal grafting.
Cornea transplant, or Keratoplasty, is a highly refined surgery, replacing a diseased and opaque cornea with a clear donor cornea. Keratoplasty can restore vision, reduce pain and improve the appearance of a diseased cornea
The laser is an instrument that produces a pure, high-intensity beam of light energy. The laser light can be precisely focused onto the retina (the light sensing tissue at the back of the eye), selectively treating the desired area while leaving the surrounding tissues untouched.
An intravitreal injection is a procedure to place a medication directly into the space in the back of the eye called the vitreous cavity, near the retina. This is commonly used to treat retinal diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, macular edema, and retinal vein occlusion
Though it happens more frequently among younger populations, it may also appear later in life. The misalignment may be permanent or it may be temporary, occurring occasionally, and can be in any direction: inward, outward, upward or downward. If the child is not treated at the appropriate time
