Dr. Liaqat A. Khalfe, Therapeutic Optometrist
Dr. Liaqat Khalfe received his Doctor of Optometry (O.D.) and Bachelor of Science (BSc.) degrees from the University of Houston. He completed both degrees in six and a half years instead of the standard eight years. The College of Optometry faculty voted Dr. Khalfe as one of the top ten clinicians in Spring 1989, Fall 1989, and Spring 1990.
Dr. Khalfe is the founder of EyeLand Vision whose reason for existence is to preserve, enhance and protect eyesight. He envisioned an Optometric practice fully owned and operated by a doctor whose number one priority would be the well-being of the patient. He also wanted to serve his patients in a relaxed and wistful environment, away from the chaotic and over-crowded mall and big box locations. Today, EyeLand Vision, is a reality and a visit to any of the practices will confirm that Dr. Khalfe’s vision has been accomplished.
Dr. Khalfe can diagnose and treat most eye diseases including red eyes, dry eyes, cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, foreign body removal and macular degeneration. Dr. Khalfe has extensive experience in fitting all kinds of contact lenses, including specialty contact lenses for correction of astigmatism (toric contact lenses), presbyopia (bifocal contact lenses), monovision (one eye fitted for distance and the other for near), and keratoconus (abnormal corneal).
Dr. Khalfe has been providing free eye exams to the homeless since 1991, during the “Save Your Vision Week” sponsored by the American Optometric Association. He has also served as the 2nd Vice President at the Commonwealth Elementary School and is a volunteer at his children’s Sunday school.
Dr. Khalfe loves sports and is a fan of all Houston teams.
