Meet your Surgeon

Miss Tina Khanam

My goal is to deliver the best possible vision. This is the best visual quality and commonly minimising the need for glasses or contact lenses and, for some people, eliminating that need completely. In order to achieve this I use the most advanced technology. I have very extensive experience as an expert cataract, cornea and refractive surgeon. This followed general and then Fellowship sub-specialist training at the highest level.

My expertise is in refractive, cataract, lens replacement, laser refractive and corneal procedures. I deliver thoughtful and personalised care.

My interest in the precision and optical engineering of refractive vision correction resulted in me pursuing this sub-speciality. I trained at University College London Medical School, then Moorfields Eye Hospital, to become the ophthalmic surgeon and remain in London now as the Consultant.

Outside of the UK, I enjoy performing charitable work in vision camps training local medical teams.
