Academic background

After graduating from the United Medical and Dental Schools of Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals (UMDS), Mr Khan initially underwent general training with a view to becoming a GP before deciding on a career in Ophthalmology. His basic ophthalmic surgical training was in the South Thames region, including St Thomas’ Hospital, and higher surgical training in the North Thames region, including Great Ormond Street Hospital and Moorfields Eye Hospital. He then went on to undertake a fellowship (advanced subspecialty training) in cataract, cornea and refractive surgery at the world renowned Corneoplastic Unit in East Grinstead. Mr Khan worked as a Consultant at the Corneoplastic Unit from 2008 to 2012 before deciding to commit to full time independent practice - where he treats both private and NHS patients - in order to provide the highest standards of care without the distractions and limitations of a typical NHS environment.

Experienced in the diagnosis and management of complex corneal problems, including those following refractive surgery, Mr Khan is actively involved in the teaching of other ophthalmologists, optometrists, nurses and other healthcare providers, both nationally and internationally. In addition to cataract surgery, intraocular lenses and laser vision correction, Mr Khan has a particular interest in dry eyes and visual problems related to driving. Unlike many ophthalmologists Mr Khan has himself undergone laser vision correction.

Mr Khan is fully accredited on the GMC Specialist Register for Ophthalmology and recognised by all health insurance providers.
