An overview of cataracts by respected Los Angeles cataract surgeon Dr. Rajesh Khanna, MD
For cataract surgery Los Angeles patients would do well to consider Khanna Institute. Dr. Rajesh Khanna has a passion for his field and wants his patients to enjoy the best vision possible. Part of his mission is to educate people on the nature of their vision impairment.
A cataract is a cloudy area in the lens of your eye. Normal eye lenses are completely transparent, allowing light to pass freely to the back of the eye. Once a cataract starts to develop, your eye’s lens will gradually become more opaque, causing less light to reach your retina. Cataracts are the leading cause of blindness among American seniors.
Around 50% of Americans between the ages of 65 and 74 have cataracts. This percentage goes up to around 70% once you reach age 75.Therefore, and a majority of cataract surgery in Los Angeles will be performed on patients in their sixties and seventies . If you have a cataract, you may experience the following symptoms:
If cataracts are left untreated for too long, they can eventually lead to blindness. Thankfully, there is a safe and effective solution: cataract surgery.
Over the years, the cataract surgery of Los Angeles surgeon, Dr. Khanna, has been virtually perfected to the point where it is now one of the safest, most effective, and most successful surgeries in medicine. The basic procedure involves removing the cloudy natural lens of your eye and replacing it with a new artificial lens. Your cataract will be removed with ultrasonic waves: a process known as phacoemulsification.
Time is valuable, and for that reason Dr. Khanna can complete a cataract surgery in as little as 10 minutes. Thanks to amazing advances in the types of refractive lenses that are available, cataract surgery is capable of not only restoring your vision, but potentially making it better than it was before. Best of all, the results are permanent. Your cataracts will never return.
I had Cataract surgery performed on both eyes by Dr. Khanna. Like all patients, initially I was apprehensive and had to muster all of my courage to undergo these surgeries. Perhaps the possibility of losing my drivers license finally was the “Kick in the Pants” that I needed. There was a very busy team of experts attending to me in a quiet efficient manner. Never before did so many fine people attend to me. During the whole procedure I didn’t feel any pain. I was relaxed and the expertise of those around me was obvious, even with my eyes not in use. Immediately after the surgery I could see miraculously well, even though prior to the surgery I was almost blind. Again, there was no pain or irritation in my eyes whatsoever. I feel that Dr. Khanna’s expert surgery and implantation of lenses into my eyes have made me one of the best drivers in Los Angeles. Even my wife appreciates my full confidence in my driving and in my everyday life’s tremendous, miraculous change to the best. Dr. Khanna and his fantastic staff, whom I fully recommend to one and all, make me proud to be an American. *
