Advanced technology, PRELEX can restore vision. This 21st century technique is the wave of the future. PRELEX is better and longer lasting than LASIK. This recently FDA approved technology has granted vision to Gwendolyn Hayes, a legally blind woman slowly getting the light extracted from her vision. Gwendolyn is now able to read and write without glasses, seeing for the first time in 40 years. She describes it as a ‘miracle’. “Other doctors told me there was nothing they could do. I was heading towards blindness. Then I came to Dr. Khanna. Dr. Khanna not only restored my vision, but it’s better than I ever imagined.” This was possible through the cutting edge technology of PRELEX combined with crystal lens High definition. PRELEX is a safe 10 minute procedure using custom designed restore 3D or Crystalens HD implants inside the eye. Gwendolyn can now see far and near in each eye. This has allowed her to continue and improve her daily activities and maintain her independence. The crystalens implants work with the eyes natural muscle to accommodate near, immediate and distance subjects. This preserves your binocular vision and depth of field. Crystalens comes closest to mirroring the functions of the natural lens. Gwendolyn says “I want to spread the message and let others know of his [Dr. Khanna] great works, that is my mission in life.”
Tears bathe your eye and wash out dust and debris. They also help keep your eye moist and contain enzymes that are essential for good eye health.
If you are suffering from dry eye syndrome, your eye either does not produce sufficient tears, or has a certain chemical composition that causes your tears to dry up too quickly.
Those who have poor vision and are considering LASIK surgery, it is important to note that dry eyes can occur both before and after this procedure. Dry eyes may be aggravated in patients who had the condition prior to their surgery.
Dry eyes are less common
Surgeons who use epiLASIK have reported fewer instances of dry eye syndrome as a complication. One reason may be because the thinner corneal flap does not impede the normal processes of the corneal nerves that trigger the responses necessary to moisten your eye’s surface.
EpiLASIK differs from LASIK because of the type and thickness of the corneal flap. The flap cut is so thin that it does not penetrate the actual cornea substance, only its outer layer, known as the epithelium. An epithelial separator is used to separate the epithelium sheet from the eye. Because epiLASIK does not actually penetrate into the superficial layers of the cornea like LASIK does, it is less likely that you will develop or worsen dry eyes with this procedure.

The Khanna Institute of LASIK and Refractive Surgery is proud to announce it is offering the newest version of Acrysof’s ReSTOR intraocular lens (IOL), the Acrysof ReSTOR +3.0 D. The ReSTOR +3.0 D received approval by the Food and Drug Administration on December 23, 2008 for the correction of presbyopia in cataract patients. In clinical trials, the ReSTOR +3.0 D achieved a superb patient satisfaction rate, with 95 % of recipients saying they would have get the lens again. Nearly four times as many patients achieved 20/20 vision with ReSTOR +3.0 D as with previous versions of the ReSTOR lens.
When the natural lens in one or more eyes becomes cloudy with cataracts, the only available treatment is replacing the lens with an artificial lens. Early replacement lenses only allowed recipients to see clearly either up close or at a distance, but ReSTOR and other advanced IOLs can give patients a full range of vision following surgery. The ReSTOR lens can also be used to correct presbyopia, a condition that affects many Americans aged 40 and older, typically requiring the use of reading glasses or bifocals. Because of its superior optical qualities, the ReSTOR lens offers the chance for people to continue performing all their day-to-day tasks without the use of reading glasses or bifocals.
To learn more about the ReSTOR +3.0D or other treatments for cataracts and presbyopia, schedule a refractive surgery consultation today.
