SUPERLASIK- Enhance Your Vision; Safer Than LASIK
Things are moving forward and new and advanced procedures are
being developed for those who originally could not receive the standard Lasik
procedure. Dr. Khanna has introduced a brand new procedure called “Super Lasik”
a new, safer and more stable procedure that has now been created for those who
have thin or abnormal corneas. What is great about this new procedure is the
effects are more precise and long term. This procedure is a culmination of the
merger of benefits of both PRK and LASIK. To accomplish this cutting edge
surgery, Dr Khanna uses a new FDA approved instrument called a Epikeratome. This
instrument raises an approximately 50 micron flap (thinner than even an
Intralase). Laser surface ablation using the latest generation of LASERS is than
done. Like in LASIK the flap is riposted back. A bandage lens is than placed
over the eye. This is a safer method of visual correction. There is no
distortion of the architecture of the cornea. So if the cornea has a young’s
modulus which is low, or is thin or asymmetric this method is safer. Young’s
Anyone over the age of eighteen can benefit from corrective vision surgery.
The investment pays for itself. What’s really exciting is that Superlasik can
even be done on patients who have thin corneas and were not candidates for LASIK.
Its also safer since minimal trauma is done to the cornea. Patients leave with a
new completeness and clarity with life because really, how we see things affects
our total outlook on life. We have been impressed by the quick recovery
following this new procedure. It has even been better than we anticipated. Most
of our patients are able to drive the next day and some even return to work.
People leave feeling rejuvenated and young, and in reality who wouldn’t want
that? What has been exciting is that this technology is even safer than
Intralase or the all laser LASIK. The flap is more consistent and thinner than
what the Intralase can fashion.
Can a Rose have no thorns? Superlasik may not be a panacea for all. If a
patient has keratoconus or Pellucid marginal degeneration or other corneal
disease than this procedure is not for them. Immunological disease and catracts
may also preclude people. For more info visit www.Khannainstitute.com
Dr. Khanna, a certified Master of Surgery, specializes in only the most
advanced Lasik procedures such as laser wavefront, advanced surface, multi focal
lenses, refractive lens exchange and refractive cataract.
He is a current member of the UCLA faculty, where he shares his surgical
skills and expertise in the safest and most effective forms of refractive
surgery with a new generation of ophthalmic surgeons. He is also an active
member of the top ophthalmology organizations including the American Academy of
Ophthalmology and the American Society of Cataract and Refractive.
With his extensive experience comes his need to make sure his patients
benefit in every way possible from their procedures. Before surgery one will
have pre-op consultations in which he will measure the cornea and dilate the
eyes so that he can determine what procedure is right for that particular
individual. With this dedication and patience comes the patient’s reward; a new
and refreshing persp
