Recently M.D. Rajesh Khanna, founder of the Khanna Institute of LASIK, was featured in the respected trade journal, Cataract & refractive surgery today . In the article titled, "Advantageous in second-opinion patients." Dr. Khanna discussed his newest technology PRELEX and his wavefront LASIK procedures.
PRELEX, one of the newest editions to medical vision advancements treats the condition of presbyopia. PRELEX can help eye patients with cataracts, nearsightedness, farsightedness, and those who don't qualify for LASIK. The procedure is performed in the AAASC Khanna certified surgery center and takes just 15 minutes. The eye's natural lens is replaced with an artificial lens. The natural lens is vaporized and replaced by FDA approved Crystalens or Restore Aspheric lenses. Through this procedure Dr. Khanna claims that he has restored sight to legally blind patients.
Dr. Khanna is also a veteran wavefront LASIK surgeon. He explains his evaluation of the patient before surgery.
"As a refractive specialist, I see a lot of patients who are seeking second opinions. I like to use the Galilei Dual Scheimpflug Analyzer (Ziemer Group, Port, Switzerland) to ensure that not only the patient's central pachymetry spread is good, but also that the pachymetry spreads over the entire corneal surface. There are two subtle signs that LASIK may not be a viable option for a certain case: (1) there is a big difference in the pachymetric readings in the superior and inferior cornea; or (2) the thinnest point of the cornea is displaced inferiorly."
Among Dr. Khanna's clientele are many athletes and celebrities, most recently actor Corbin Bleu from High School Musical. He has been featured on the front cover of Life After 50, The Beverly Hills Times, Valley life and various publications, and newly awarded for his work by the Ventura County Star
The Khanna Institute has an office in on Valencia Blvd in Santa Clarita.
