Practice Areas

Dr. Khaliq has over 30 years of experience performing the following services and more!

Comprehensive Eye Exams

Your eyes are the window to your health. Eye doctors are often the first healthcare professionals to detect many chronic systemic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

Vision Correction

Surgical or non-surgical treatment of myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism and other vision disorders.

Dry or Watery Eyes

Balanced lubrication of the eyes is important to the healthy functioning of the eye. Dr. Khaliq is an expert on dry or watery eye treatments.

Cataracts

Cataract is the term used to describe a clouding of the natural lens of the eye. When the lens becomes cloudy your vision is affected. This clouded lens is called a cataract, and it must be removed before vision can be restored.

Glaucoma

Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the optic nerve is damaged, resulting in the loss of peripheral vision. Elevated intraocular pressure is a known cause of optic nerve damage and can be controlled by medication, laser therapy, and sometimes filtration surgery.

LASIK

LASIK utilizes the excimer cool-beam laser to vaporize a small amount of corneal tissue beneath the surface of the cornea to reshape the cornea and correct your vision.

Eyelid Corrective Surgery

The eyelids serve an important practical purpose, protecting your eyes from wind, foreign objects, and overexposure to light. Errors in the position of the eyelid can adversely affect both your appearance and your vision.

Diabetic Eye Problems

Diabetes, a disorder that results in high levels of glucose in the blood. This can lead to multiple problems throughout the body and the eyes in particular. Often the very earliest sign of diabetes is a change in vision. Treatment requires regular eye examinations with a qualified eye doctor.

Other Corneal Problems

The cornea is the clear, protective outer layer of the eye that is susceptible to damage and disease. Dr. Khaliq has experience with a wide variety of cornea problems including Allergies, Conjunctivitis, Corneal Infections, Dry Eye, Fuchs’ Dystrophy, Corneal Dystrophies, Herpes Zoster (Shingles), Iridocorneal Endothelial Syndrome and many more..

Conjunctivitis (pink eye)

Conjunctivitis, also known as pinkeye, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva. The conjunctiva is the thin clear tissue that lies over the white part of the eye and lines the inside of the eyelid.

Strabismus (lazy eye)

Strabismus, more commonly known as cross-eyed, is a vision condition in which a person can not align both eyes simultaneously under normal conditions. Strabismus won’t go away on it’s own, but is treatable in both children and adults.

Macular Degeneration

The macula is the part of the eye responsible for the fine focus and color detection. It is particularly vulnerable to aging, UV light, and other factors that can cause loss of vision. Macular degeneration is most effectively treated in its earliest stages.
