What Do Patients Say About Dr. Khokhar?

"Wow!! All I can say is this is amazing and I wish I had done it sooner! Dr. Khokhar is a skilled surgeon. He and his staff are true professionals. I was well informed and made to feel comfortable throughout the entire process, from start to finish. No shortcuts were taken. I would never have imagined the results would be this great! I would highly recommend Dr. Khokhar to anyone interested!!" —Ernest R.

"From the initial consultation to the final follow-up visit, the level of service and attentiveness was unsurpassed. Your staff could not have been any more accommodating in scheduling my visits. Throughout each step of the process, I felt taken care of and appreciated. Unlike other lasik centers, this was the only one where I was able to meet with the doctor during the initial consultation. I never once felt pressured to make a decision. Rather, Dr. Khokhar patiently answered all of my questions and alleviated all of my concerns. Once I decided to have Lasik, the pre-op appointments and the actual procedure could not have gone any smoother. I felt well-prepared and was surprisingly relaxed during the procedure. The outcome was better than even I imagined. I only have one regret – not doing this procedure sooner. It truly is a life-changing event. Thanks to you and your staff for a wonderful experience!" —Sachin

LASIK Houston – Serving patients seeking LASIK eye surgery in Sugar Land and the surrounding area

Amjad Khokhar, MD, FAAO, a board-certified ophthalmologist and Fellow of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, has been serving Houston and Sugar Land LASIK surgery patients for a decade. He is one of the most experienced LASIK surgeons in the United States, having performed thousands of laser vision correction surgical procedures. Thanks to his meticulous surgical care and attentive bedside manner, Dr. Khokhar has been recognized as one of America's Top LASIK Surgeons, in addition to receiving a number of other awards. In contrast to the countless "LASIK factories" that quickly treat then dismiss patients, the surgeons and staff at Sugar Land Eye and Laser Center take pride in getting to know each patient by name and in delivering personalized patient eye care. Sugar Land Eye and Laser Center calls this their Personal LASIK Experience.

Sugar Land Eye and Laser Center is proud to offer the most advanced laser vision correction treatment available, using the state-of-the-art iLASIK laser platform. The iLASIK suite allows Dr. Khokhar to customize LASIK surgery and other laser vision correction procedures to each of his patients. It also allows him to complete the procedure without the need for a surgical blade. iLASIK is the leading laser vision correction system available. It is so reliable and precise that NASA and the U.S. Air Force have approved its use for surgical vision correction in NASA astronauts and U.S. Air Force fighter pilots.

As founder of Sugar Land Eye and Laser Center, a premier laser eye care practice in Sugar Land, Texas, Dr. Khokhar treats those seeking cataract surgery and LASIK surgery in Houston. He also offers additional eye care services, including PRK, corneal transplant, valve implant for the treatment of glaucoma, strabismus ("lazy eye") surgery, treatment of diabetic eye disease and pterygium surgery, among many other vision correction options.

To determine if you are a suitable candidate for LASIK surgery or one of the many surgical vision correction procedures offered at Sugarland Eye and Laser Center, please call for a complimentary consultation. During the consultation visit, leading-edge technologies are used to establish which vision correction procedure is most appropriate to meet your individual medical needs and satisfy your goals for vision correction.

More About Vision Correction at Sugarland Eye and Laser Center

A variety of individuals who desire freedom from daily reliance on prescription eyewear or contact lenses can benefit from iLASIK vision correction treatment. The bladeless, wavefront-guided laser system is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat several vision problems, including:


The CustomVue Wavescan detects unique imperfections in a person's eye resulting in vision that is better than before, day or night.
  • Mild to moderate farsightedness
  • Mild to severe nearsightedness
  • All types of astigmatism

The first step in the iLASIK process is for Dr. Khokhar to utilize the WaveScan wavefront imaging system to diagnose the eye's unique refractive error — the problem causing the eye to reflect light improperly, leading to poor sight. The technology used in this step is the same technology found in NASA telescopes. The WaveScan diagnostic tool then generates a three-dimensional map of the eye's refractive error that is 24 times more precise than the data produced by other diagnostic systems. The iLASIK platform uses this digital information to calibrate the excimer laser that reshapes the curvature of the cornea to improve the patient's sight.

Before starting iLASIK surgery, Dr. Khokhar applies topical anesthetic drops to the eye. He then employs the Intralase laser, which works by delivering miniscule pulses of laser energy into surface of the cornea, to create a corneal flap. Dr. Khokhar gently folds back the flap, so the calibrated excimer laser can be used to re-contour the underlying corneal tissue, thus correcting the refractive error causing the patient's vision problem. The iLASIK platform is equipped with iris registration and ActiveTrak3D technology to track any eye movement that might occur, providing an additional level of safety and accuracy during the laser vision correction surgery. Once Dr. Khokhar is satisfied with the newly contoured cornea, he carefully repositions the flap back in its original place, where it naturally reseals itself to the eye without the need for sutures

The procedure is not painful, and Dr. Khokhar's Houston LASIK patients typically experience improved vision within 24 to 48 hours following surgery. Most patients no longer need to depend on contact lenses or glasses to see clearly. In fact, more than 99 percent of Sugar Land LASIK patients attain 20/20 vision after lasik vision correction surgery.
