About me

Khalid Ikram graduated in medicine from Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School, at the University of London in 1991. He then trained extensively in ophthalmic surgery in Southampton, Oxford and Manchester. At Manchester Royal Eye Hospital, Khalid undertook an advanced specialist training period (fellowship) in corneal and refractive procedures. This involved, uniquely for a UK fellowship, both laser vision correction (excimer laser) and specialised intraocular surgery.
Khalid commenced his NHS consultant post in 2002, working mainly at Stepping Hill Hospital, Stockport. He is also an honorary consultant at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital (MREH), one of the largest ophthalmic teaching & training centres in Europe.

In his NHS post, Khalid has extensive responsibilities in the teaching and training of junior ophthalmic surgeons and is the Royal College of Ophthalmologists tutor for ophthalmology at Stepping Hill Hospital, where he is also lead consultant for ophthalmic surgery. As college tutor, Khalid also sits on the regional specialist training committees, selecting individuals for advanced ophthalmic surgical training in the North-West, and also monitoring and assessing and appraising their progress.

Khalid also has a particular interest in improving the standards of assessment and planning for cataract and refractive lens surgery, and has run teaching conferences in biometry at both a national and international level.

Having extensive experience in general ophthalmic care and specialising in small incision cataract surgery, Khalid has further developed a considerable expertise in the refractive aspects of such surgery. He is experienced in a large variety of refractive surgery techniques (corneal excimer laser and intraocular lens surgery) for the management of conditions such as myopia (short-sightedness), hyperopia (long-sightedness) and presbyopia (age related reduction in the eye’s ability to focus on near targets).
