As a board-certified and fellowship-trained pediatric ophthalmologist, Dr. Khammar is committed to providing the best in medical and surgical care for children’s eyes because they affect not only how a child sees, but also how he or she learns and lives.  Dr. Khammar attended medical school at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and pursued ophthalmology training at the Doheny Eye Institute in Los Angeles.  Following his training in Pediatric Ophthalmology at the University of Colorado, he worked both in private practice and academics in Chicago, Illinois.  He is a published author and regularly gives lectures in his field.
