Eye Care Exams
Serving Los Angeles, California and Surrounding Communities
Visit us for orientation, or go ahead and schedule your free LASIK screening and learn what LASIK can do for you. At the Khanna Institute of LASIK, we make sure our patients are well-informed and ready to take the next step.
For your convenience, free parking is provided. You will enjoy a hosted introduction with refreshments. You will be invited to view an informative video presentation on the latest LASIK technology and state of the art procedures. You will be able to tour The Khanna Institute of Refractive Surgery. A question and answer session with the doctor and his staff will assist in your complete understanding of how the process works.
“Dr. Khanna is the best doctor around Ventura Co. I had Lasik in one eye and PRK in the other. I am very happy with the results. I was very nervous, but once I met Dr. Khanna and spoke with the staff, I felt very much at ease.”*
(Please bring previous prescriptions, contacts and glasses)
As part of your free screening, a number of easy and painless tests are performed to determine if you are an ideal candidate for the LASIK procedure. If for any reason it is determined in your screening, or in your pre-operative exam that you are for some reason not an ideal candidate for this procedure, you will be informed and we will not recommend surgery. Your screening will include:
- AUTO REFRACTION is a computerized method to calculate your exact prescription.
- CORNEAL TOPOGRAPHY measures the shape of the eye. This test helps to rule out “Keratoconus”, diseases and other anomalies.
- LENSOMETERY checks the power of your current glasses. This helps to identify fluctuation in refractions. Instability in this test suggests that you might not be a good candidate for LASIK.
- UCVA exam, or “Uncorrected Visual Acuity”, tests your uncorrected vision and is designed to create a baseline measurement for comparison and to the post-operative corrected vision.
- WAVEFRONT is a state of the art method to document your exact focal and prescription needs. The old technology measured your eyes utilizing a simple two-axis system. The Wavefront method uses four beams of light and performs literally millions of calculations based on thousands of individual reference points. With Wavefront, vision can be improved to crystal clarity! the WAVEPRINT allows class for the first time to visualize what the patient actually sees. The higher order aberrations which may responsible for night vision care and Hills can also be seen.
- PUPILLOMETRY is used to measure the size of the pupil. Very large pupils may not be good Lasik candidates, while exceptionally small pupils may not be suitable for the Wavefront procedure.
A detailed and comprehensive exam will be preformed by your doctor himself, who will personally observe, identify and record your precise optical prescription, charting the exact measurements required to best provide you with the absolute best possible results. It is ideal to remove your soft lenses for 2 weeks prior to exam and hard contact lenses 4 weeks prior to exam.
- CORNEAL PACHYMETRY measures the thickness of the Cornea. If a Cornea is too thin, the eyes are ineligible for LASIK correction. Pachymetry may be performed by optical or ultrasound method. The ultrasound method is more accurate.
- CYCLOPLEGIC REFRACTION is used to overcome any induced refractory errors due to involuntary eye spasms. Its essential in hyperopes and astigmats.
- FUNDUS is an exam necessary to visualize the disc macula and periphery. This looks for and helps to rule out retinal tears or holes, and glaucoma.
- APPLANATION TONOMETRY is a test to measure eye pressure. This is another method to help rule out Glaucoma.
- KERATOMETRY measures the radius of the Cornea. This is done to rule out high astigmatism and to help select the right equipment.
- MANIFEST REFRACTION is the name given to the classic, “Better one, or two” eye exam. The surgeon uses this test to help determine if there is any difference between previous refractions and to calculate lenticular and corneal astigmatisms.
Assuming that this extensive battery of tests and a credit check finds nothing that would prevent you from having the LASIK procedure, an appointment can then be scheduled for the LASIK procedure. In addition, video instruction describing the process and detailed pre-operative instruction forms are provided.
