Eye diseases can be caused by many factors including aging, genetics, or a number of other health issues. As a board-certified member of the American Board of Ophthalmology (ABOP), Dr. Amjad Khokhar has the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to provide high-quality patient care as an Ophthalmologist. Ophthalmologists are medically trained to diagnose, monitor and treat all visual disorders and can also provide consultation for eye issues resulting from systemic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. Training authorizes the Ophthalmologist to deal with all problems affecting the eye, its component structures, including the eyelids and visual pathways.
In addition to being board certified, Dr. Khokhar is an American Academy of Ophthalmology fellow, and a member of the Texas Medical Association, the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons, the Harris County Medical Society, and the Houston Ophthalmic Society.
