Now one of the most important things to remember when addressing the fear of Lasik Surgery is the fact that you are not alone in feeling a little anxiety over the possibility of having someone cut on your eyes. Just the idea of having someone perform this procedure can cause fear among many patients!
It tends to give off a negative suggestion that glasses and contacts are good whereas Lasik is bad. For many patients, undergoing a Lasik procedure becomes a harrowing experience due to the fear of pain or loss of vision. At the Khanna Institute of Lasik, our expert Lasik Surgeon is fully trained in a variety of Lasik procedures and treatments; all of which are designed to help you see things clearer.
At the Khanna Institute, our procedure has often been considered to be virtually painless, and we can definitely help you to achieve better vision. We offer a wide range of procedures for improving ones vision and I’m sure we will have a procedure that will suit your vision needs.

At first it might prove difficult to understand how a surgical procedure can be safer than corrective equipment but the truth to the matter is this. A person wearing contacts is 5 xs more likely to experience complications over a person who has had Lasik Surgery. Contact lens wearers, risk exposing their eyes to major bacteria by having expired prescriptions, sleeping with their contacts in, or through bad hygiene and improper use.
If you are a Contact Lens wearer who suffers from having some of these bad habits then now might be a good time to consider Lasik surgery. If you add up the cost of a prescription lenses over a lifetime then you would see that the cost for Lasik easily pays for itself over the years. Just imagine never having to worry about losing a contact, a dirty contact lens infection or a contact lens cutting your eye. Not to mention all of the countless hours of contact lens care. You can go to sleep and wake up in the morning with clear vision without having to put on glasses or having to put in your contacts.
Priceless…

Too Sweet For Beverly Hills LASIK?

 

Too Sweet For Beverly Hills LASIK?

 

Some people from los angeles have high blood sugar. This is called Diabetes Mellitus. yes their blood is too sweet. As Shakespeare said rose is sweet by any other name. Can we still do LASIK? What is the best method to do the laser vision correction? Let one of Americas Top Eye Doctors answer that question.”Diabetes affects the pericytes of capillaries leading to fluid leakage changing the pericyte/ endothelium ratio.” says Rajesh Khanna, MD.” This leads to bleeding and ischemia rendering new vessels to proliferate. These factors can also affect the adhesion of epithelium to basement membrane.”

 

Dr. Khanna we are impressed with your geekspeak but can you translate into simple english for us mere mortals.

 

“I can do LASIK if Diabetes is mild and epithelium or the top covering of the cornea is taut. If it is loose we have to do superlasik. Anyways the Blood sugar should be under control, like below 200 and Haemoglobin HgB1 Ac should be below 7.”

 

Was it too difficult to speak in simple terms. LOL

LASIK VS THIN FLAP LASIK

OK, you have decided to have LASIK. Your dad had it 12 years ago for 1899/eye and now that LASIK center offers it for 999/eye. If it worked for your father it should work for you is what they say. But wait a minute… there was no facebook nor twitter than. Pentium 1 processors ruled the day and windows 2000 was ruling the day. We have moved on from pentium 1 to xeon and now windows 7 is here. The good news for your eyes is that LASIK has progressed too. First What is the full form of LASIK? LASER assisted intrastromal keratomilusis. LASER of course  stands for light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation. In simple words in LASIK a flap is fashioned and everted. The exposed cornea is than modified by the laser. Now that is what we are going to talk about- the design and fashioning the LASIK flap.

Good Morning America – LASIK and You

Waxler does think the FDA should force manufacturers and LASIK surgeons to be more forthcoming with patients about potential side effects.

“The agency actually has a lot of power,” Waxler said. “The agency could readily require that those manufacturers keep better tabs on what happens with their product.”

This news piece appeared on Good Morning America, a television show on ABC vindicates what our Beverly Hills LASIK surgeon has been saying for years. Rajesh Khanna, MD is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist by the American Board of Ophthalmology. He does LASIK in Beverly Hills. He believes three components are important for successful outcome with LASIK surgery. A fellowship trained highly skilled surgeon. Advanced lasers like VISX wavefront, Intralase, and Allegrato which are maintained by the manufacturers Abbot and Alcon. These have have to be supported by well trained experienced staff. It behooves the surgeon to see the patients prior to surgery and see if they are good candidates. Our Beverly Hills Surgeon takes care to rule out thin cornea, keratoconus, cataracts and sever dry eyes. Whether patients are Hollywood stars or your average Joe, he spends time explaining and answering their questions, making sure they have realistic expectations.

Is this all possible in assembly line process? I think that is what Waxler is remorseful about. People using outdated lasers and performing outdated LASIK or herding you like sheep through an asembly line. C’mon Americans we need to maintain our dignity and be given the best service.
