A satisfied Superlasik patient

I underwent the SuperLasik procedure in January of this year. My husband gave me this procedure as a birthday gift knowing that I had always wanted to have lasik done, but was too nervous to pursue it on my own.

Being nearsighted since the sixth grade, I was very excited about what my vision would be after the procedure and I wasn’t disappointed. Here’s my story.

First, I went to my initial appointment with Dr. Khanna to determine if I was a good lasik candidate. After thoroughly examining my eyes, I was lucky enough to have the choice of any of the procedures that Dr. Khanna offers. After discussing the pro and cons of all procedures, I chose SuperLasik, the latest laser eye procedure which is only being offered by Dr. Khanna in this area. The reason I chose SuperLasik is simple. The biggest benefit of Superlasik is that it is less invasive than traditional lasik as it does not cut into the cornea and only abrates the outer surface of the eye, which translates into a healthy eye and less long term side effects. Basically with Superlasik, you get all the benefits of great vision while at the same time you greatly reduce any complications that may occur with traditional lasik. The main downside of Superlasik is that it takes your eyes a few more days to recover from the surgery.

On the day of the surgery, I was nervous and excited about being able to see clearly without glasses or contacts. Dr. Khanna presented himself as extremely competent and caring, which are two qualities you always want in your doctor. During the surgery, I was awake the entire time and Dr. Khanna and his staff were very assuring and comforting. The procdure lasted just a few minutes on each eye. I really didn’t feel any pain but just some mild pressure on my eye during the procedure. Immediately after the procedure, I was told to look out the window and I could see the leaves on the trees. I was thrilled to say the least.

After Superlasik surgery, you wear contact bandages on your eyes which are just bigger than average contacts. I kept my eyes basically closed the rest of the day and when I woke up the next day, I could see pretty well. However, with Superlasik, since the “skin” of the eye is healing, your eyes do not stabilize for at least several days, which Dr. Khanna did tell me about, so I was prepared. But three days after surgery, I was seeing 20/20 and coud drive a car.

I just went to see Dr. Khanna for my one month post operative visit and I can now see 20/15 in both eyes. I am thrilled with the results and my eyes look great. I would recommend Superlasik to anyone considering eye surgery as I am confident that my eyes will reamin healthy and that my vision will remain clear for the forseeable future.

I want to thank Dr. Khanna and his great staff for giving me such great care and support before, during and after my eye surgery. I would highly recommend anyone to see Dr. Khanna if they want to change their life and see clearly without glasses or contacts in the future.

Thanks Dr. Khanna!
