Dr. Tarek Khalil

Dr. Khalil was raised in Clark’s Summit, Pennsylvania. He attended SUNY Binghamton University where he majored in Integrative Neuroscience and developed an interest in the visual system. He initially pursued a career as an ophthalmic technician with Drs. Crenshaw and Belani and gained valuable clinical experience to help his future aspirations to become an eye doctor. He appreciated how eyecare tangibly improves patients’ lives. To Dr. Khalil, vision is the most important sense.

At the Pennsylvania College of Optometry (now Drexel University), Dr. Khalil not only excelled academically.  During the pandemic lock down, he unified faculty and students by creating a show for the school dubbed “Salus Spicy Ones.” He was recognized for cultivating a tighter knit environment and increasing student engagement. Dr. Khalil then graduated cum laude from Pennsylvania College of Optometry Class in 2024.

During his training, Dr. Khalil rotated through the Philadelphia VA Medical Center, Northeastern Eye Institute in Scranton, PA, Precision Eye Group in Honesdale, PA and The Eye Institute of Philadelphia. He received honors at every rotation and gained valuable experience in ocular disease, contact lenses, pre- and postoperative Lasik/cataract management and dry eye management.

Dr. Khalil is eager to return back to where it all started, working with his mentors Dr. Crenshaw and Dr. Belani. Dr. Khalil will practice full-scope medical optometry including glaucoma management, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye exams, dry eye management, contact lenses/corneal management, and emergency eye care.

Dr. Khalil is fluent in Arabic and English. He is a member of the American Optometric Association. Dr. Khalil and his wife, who is also an optometrist, Dr. Diana Mamoud, love to travel and try different restaurants. In his free time, he likes to exercise and watch sports. Ask him about any sport!
