My brother was recommended Dr Khalil whilst in Cairo on Business, he was extremely happy and called me just having had the treatment. As I was living in London I began doing research on the various clinics. After lots of good reviews I chose The Optimax centre on the Finchley Road. I arrived and was sent through a series of tests til finally I met a "consultant ". He advised me of the suitability of the surgery and I expressed my various concerns, of so called night blindness and the fact due to age my eyes were going slightly longsighted. He reassured me and quoted 3500 pounds to have it done. As I left I was taken to a receptionist who tried to get me to book an appointment. On hearing of my reluctance she offered me a discount of 500 pounds. I suggested that if she was able to give me a discount without me asking surely she could lower the price yet again. She then asked her supervisor who came up and promptly lowered the price by another 500 pounds to 2500. The whole thing felt like a con, why not advertise or give me the correct price in the beginning ? This is major surgery how can they treat my eyes like a sack of potatoes to be bargained over? The following week I called Dr Khalil. We spoke about the treatment and the logistics of having it done in Cairo. However he was adament that although I'd had my eyes checked for suitability in the UK, it was subject to his own tests and if he felt there was the slightest risk of it not being suitable for my eyes, he would not perform the surgery. That was the most comforting thing I'd heard, somebody who cared as much as me about my eyes! It was great that I could talk to the Dr himself right from the very start. He was good at explaining everything step by step which helped with my throughout my treatment. I have since recommended him to three of my friends who all had the same success. Egypt itself is wonderful and with the saving I made by not having it done in the UK I could take a holiday afterwards,however no diving or snorkling for a couple of months.
I am very pleased to be able to submit a review of this excellent clinic. Dr Khalil is a world leading expert on eye correction using Lasik. I received a thorough examination both before and a few days after the procedure. The treatment took about 20 minutes and was totally pain free. Within a few hours , the benefits of the process became apparent. Some two years later, my eyes are still perfect and I do not wear spectacles.
