eathquake lasik safety

Lasik Earthquake Safety

Did you feel that earthquake? Yes, we were rocked by an earthquake with the epicenter being near Channel Islands. We were very lucky, we didn’t have any injuries, and nothing broke down. But, two patients came today with some interesting observations and stories and I wanted to relate them to you.

One patient recently had Lasik with us. He said when the earthquake struck he was one of the special invitees who has the alarm on his phone which goes off a few seconds before an earthquake strikes. He was able to pack his bag and rush out of the building before the earthquake struck. The second patient who came said yesterday he realized why we should have Lasik eye surgery.

He had just taken off his glasses and was rubbing his eyes or something like that when the earthquake struck. When everybody started rushing out, he ran out as well; however, he couldn’t see well because he wasn’t wearing his glasses causing him to hit his head on the door as a result.

He came in today saying, now I need Lasik eye surgery. This is just one of the examples I’ve come across in my twenty-six years helping people see better. One of the small things in life which can change when you have better vision during some big things like a natural calamity like in a storm, Hurricane Katrina, et cetera. Or, an earthquake like yesterday.

When vision becomes one of the most important things in regards to our safety, it’s at that time that we realize how important it is for our emergency responders like firefighters to have good vision when they run into smoke, rubble, and fire to save people.

I’m sure you have other interesting stories where either you’ve already experienced the benefits of having Lasik eye surgery, or you wish you had Lasik eye surgery. We would love to hear from you, so send us your stories.

symphony toric presbyopic implant

Symfony or Tecnis Multifocal lens for Presbyopia Treatment

Today our topic of discussion will be Symfony or Tecnis Multifocal lens for Presbyopia Treatment.

Hi. I am Doctor Khanna, here with some models of intraocular lens implants when we do cataract surgery or we want to get rid of glasses and you are not a candidate for Lasik surgery. For example, if you are 56 years old and you want to be able to see far, middle and near, then you are up for presbyopic implants. There are different types of presbyopic implants. Today, we are going to talk about the differences between ‘Tecnis’ and ‘symfony’, which are both from Johnson and Johnson.

This is how the lenses look like. This is a clear lens and this is ‘Tecnis’ and ‘symfony’. ‘Symfony’ has less rings than ‘Tecnis’ and it is considered an EDOF (extended depth of field) lens. Whereas, ‘Tecnis’ has certain ridges, which splits the incoming light into distant and near. You can see distant and near and the bimodal curve, lets you see middle. ‘Symfony’ acts like a pin hole camera where you can see middle, distance and somewhat near.

How are you going to choose between the two? If you have long hands, then choose ‘Symfony’ but if you want to real closely then choose ‘Tecnis’. If you have had previous surgery like radial keratotomy then ‘symfony’ might be a better choice. In terms of side effects, ‘Tecnis’ has glare initially which faded away and ‘Symfony’ you can see a spider web. The best option is to discuss these various choices with your surgeon and to make sure that the surgeon is comfortable with the choices.

If you have more questions about Symfony or Tecnis Multifocal lens for Presbyopia Treatment call (310) 482 1240.  You can always read my book on amazon ‘The Miracle of PI in Eye’.

Have a wonderful day.

Fear afraid eye surgery

Afraid of eye surgery

Hi. Welcome. This is doctor Khanna. I want to talk to you about fear of eye surgery. This lesson is divided into three parts. Today’s lesson is on why we are so afraid of eye surgery. In the forth coming lesson, we will discuss how to overcome the fear. Why are we so afraid of eye surgery, we have to delve back into evolution, our upbringing and find some answers there. People are always afraid of the dark. Remember when you were a kid; you thought that there might be a monster in the closet or under the bed. People are afraid to go to the graveyard but today it is so much better. There are streetlights everywhere and we have a phone with flashlight on it.
Imagine Sherlock Holmes going out in the night when there is fog and mist around. There is an inherent fear in us coming from the times we lived in the forest. In the night, predators would come out and that fear has continued. Another thing you might have heard of is insomnia, when people are unable to sleep. It is very interesting why some people find it difficult to fall asleep and the simple answer might surprise you. The answer could be that they are afraid that they may not be able to get up if they go to sleep. They are afraid to lose their consciousness and go into a semi-conscious state. It is inculcated in every culture. Each civilization that is present on earth celebrate the festival of light in the dark days. That is their hope to overcome the darkness.
Another fear the people have is for the white coat. It is funny that people can check their blood pressure at home and it is okay and then they come to the hospital and see the white coat and the blood pressure shoots up. These are all evolutionary mechanisms that are built in for safety to preserve us and they all stack against us. There is one more called the menace reflex; when something comes near the eyes or when we sneeze, they instantly close. That is encoded in our DNA.
Corneas and eyes are every important. In fact, some evolutionary biologists feel that this reflex may have pre-dated the existence of eyes. Small microorganism who do not have eyes have had light shun on them and they immediately move away. All those things combined in the subconscious and conscious mind are all playing to develop fear about eye surgery. Do not feel fearful.
In the next lesson, we are going to come up with methods that are time tested and true to see, how we can overcome the fears regarding eye surgery. Thank you

Meet the eye docotr Dr.Rajesh Khanna

Common Questions Answers Lasik Eye Surgery

Interviewer: Hi guys, today we are hanging out with the laser man and we are going to ask you a few question. How are you doctor?
Doctor Khanna: Fine, thank you and welcome to this show.
Interviewer: Okay, the first thing I would like to know. Since you have been talking about laser surgery, how long does it last?
Doctor: There are two answers to that if I understand correctly. First, what I understand is how long will the procedure take. The procedure takes a minute or two per eye. The second part if I understand correctly is; will it last me a lifetime or not. In the modern technology of ‘eye design laser surgery’, it is a lifetime outcome. 20 to 25 years ago, with the other conventional lasers, it never lasted long. All infrared group was incorrect and it did not last. Without confusing you, if you are in your 20’s to 40’s and you are a good candidate for ‘Lasik’, which is a computer, controlled active laser eye design technology. The imperfections will be wiped off for life. So it is a lifetime investment.
Interviewer: Wonderful. Now that we have asked about this part, I would like to ask you what the side effects or after effects, we can have from this surgery?
Doctor: That is a very good question. We need to know about that so that we can plan ahead and in our practice we avoid those side effects. The most common being dry eye. Because we know that, we are fashion a flapping Lasik eye surgery. Whenever you do a flap whether it is by laser or by automatic microkeratomes, you end up cutting the cornea nerves. The cornea nerve supplies the eye with sensation, which helps in the production of tears. Around 3-6 months after Lasik, while the cornea nerves are recovering there can be dry eyes. We start patients on artificial tears ointment and even put in (inaudible 02:12) to preserve the natural tears. Another side effect, which used to be more common but it is less common but still occurs is ‘glaring halos’ in the post-operative period. Treating the dry eye does decrease that incidence but is somebody is inconvenienced we do prescribe yellow tinted glassed that people wear for driving bikes which cuts of the glare.
Finally, there can be under correction or over correction with eye design technology but the incidence is very little. To make sure it does not occur we have nomograms we apply and this should measure the refraction between one to three months to make sure we hit a point and brought the patient down to zero. Those are the common side effects. In some patients, especially the younger ones there can be some inflammation in the post-op period. We do start steroid drops but do not worry these are not bulk up your muscles, they are very low dose. They do help to prevent and treat the inflammation. Infection is always a treat, we do not see it commonly but we start topical antibiotics drops a day before and we continue for 5-7 days after surgery.
Those are the common side effects that we see and we work hard to prevent any of them from occurring.
Interviewer: Very nice. We have gotten to understand two things today. The first was about the laser, how long it takes and how long does it last. The second thing you were talking about was the side effects. Now that you have mentioned this few things, we just want to know if it is different for each customer or for each person?
Doctor: Yes. Not everybody is a candidate for laser eye surgery. There are certain criteria that they must fit in before we can qualify them. Age being the first, if you are less than 18 years old, you are very mature and have developed cataracts or gone beyond 50 years of age, Lasik may not be the best choice for you. In that age group between 18 and 50, we have to see if your cornea has good uniformed thickness and shape. Shape and thickness of the cornea is important and any systemic disease has to be considered. Finally, your refraction has to be stable, which is usually the case between 18 to 50 years of age. We do like to make sure, so that we do not hit a moving target. If all those qualify and your prescription had to be under 10 diopters and depending on the corneal thickness, we have to see how much tissue can be ablated so that the safety zone is empty.
To summarize, we look at age, refraction, third the stability of refraction, fourth the corneal shape and fifth the corneal thickness.
Interviewer: So it depends on every individual.
Doctor: Every individual is unique as is their eye and all of them must pass these criteria. If there is any red flag on any of that, then we cannot do Lasik for that person. We would have to switch to another kind of therapy like EPILASIK, SUPERLASIK, ICL or presbiopic implant in the eye.
Interviewer: To ensure that the eyes are going to be well kept, well maintained and well done. How do you confirm that the patient would deserve this Lasik or another Lasik that you just spoke about?
Doctor: That is another beautiful question that you have asked me. What we like to do is; we want to know what the patient wants out of the procedure. We know all the procedure we have and what they can give to the patient. Each patient is different, 18-4 it is easier because they want good distance and the eye will change its shape using the muscles to see near. If they qualify, Lasik will be the first choice but if the prescription were high for example -15, we would offer them ICL. If a patient is about 4 or definitely above 55, then ‘SUPERLASIK’ or presbyopic implant in eye is a better choice. The difference being Lasik static vision and presbyopic gives dynamic vision. What I mean by that is; there are three zones of vision.
Distance: when you are driving a car and you want to see far
Middle: which was never important 20 years ago but is definitely important now. For seeing I phones, laptops and dashboard of the car.
Close: for reading and to see small bottles
Lasik can give you one of these three. That is why they say under 50 Lasik works well, because when you see one zone distance, the muscles are strong enough to show you the other two zones by changing the shape of the lens. When you are above 50, the lens is not able to change shape. If you do Lasik, you are able to set their vision for distance, middle or near. Whereas, ‘presbyopic’ gives you all three; distance, middle and near. That is a better choice for people above 50 and Lasik is a better choice for people below 50.
Interviewer: Fantastic. Thank you so much doctor. I am personally convinced about what you have said. I would definitely come up with more questions some other time. It is great to hang out with you. I am looking forward to seeing you again and coming up with questions that the customers or people will ask me
Doctor: Thank you so much. Have a wonderful day

Prnayama Works to decrease fear in Lasik and Eye surgeries

Prnayama Works to decrease fear in Lasik and Eye surgeries

Prnyama works  to help relieve anxiety in general. We have found that is especially useful before nerve racking surgical procedures. For those of our readers who are unfamiliar with what is prnayama or pranayama let us go over basic concepts of Yoga.

Yoga is ancient Indian art of improving our mental physical and spiritual health. It was neglected for thousands of years till America discovered its virtues. University based experiments were able to document the benefits of Yoga to reduce Blood pressure and stress based disease.

Yoga relies on pranayama or deep breathing exercises. There are two reasons for it. In line with western medicine the inhaled oxygen is increased with deep breathing. As you may already know oxygen is necessary for our cells to live. Another reason for relying on deep breathing is a spiritual one. IF the creator needs to send us messages the breath is the best route. Everything we eat or come in contact with gets altered before reaching the cells. Breath is delivered pure to all cells including those of the brain.

Armed with knowledge, we at Khanna Vision institute tried this time tested technique on a young adult seeking Lasik eye surgery

Prnayama Works to decrease fear in Lasik and Eye surgeries
This young gentelman had had Road Traffic Accident with brain injury. He did not want to take any additional drugs but was claustrophobic. Rajesh Khanna, MD used deep breathing technique of Prnayama, and his melodious voice to relax him. Before taking him into the Lasik suite Dr.Khanna taught him how to deep breathe and visualize his breath. Dr. K told him to see incoming breath as cool purple color and outgoing breath as green.

Our young patient was pretty enthusiastic with this idea. he also loved the personalized touch. Once inside the laser suite he started with pranayama. After his eye was cleaned and draped he continued with the process. A word of caution: He was instructed to pause when under the laser. We do not want breath to condense on the optics of the advanced laser.

Thus LASIK was performed successfully. The smile tells it all.

Prnayama Works

If you are contemplating an eye procedure but are anxious, come and see us. If for some reason you cannot have your eye surgeon contact us to learn this art. In the meantime start practicing this cost free method to improve your physical and mental health.
