What a gift it is to see clearly each and every moment of my life! No more glasses. No more itchy contacts. No more blindness in the pool and ocean. Clarity every waking moment. I started wearing glasses/contacts at age 28 when I realized I couldn’t make out numbers on uniforms at baseball games and basketball games. Sports writers can’t write about what they don’t see! I wore glasses and contacts for 12 years and never was really comfortable with either as I also suffer from chronic dry eyes. After careful consideration of several doctors in the Ventura County area, I chose Dr. Khanna for my Lasik surgery. I was immediately warmed by the staff in Dr. Khanna’s office and knew I would be in good, capable, caring hands. I was always treated with respect and importance. I can’t say the same for the other three offices I visited in the Ventura area. My first impression of Dr.Khanna and his staff was on the money. I always felt safe and I went from 20/70 vision to 20/10 in a matter of minutes. That is not a typo, 20/10! The surgery was quick, mostly painless and enjoyable (Dr. Khanna, Brandis and Michelle have a pretty good comedy routine during surgery if you ask for it). Here I sit, three months later, still testing 20/10 and never missing a visual opportunity. Now for the big cliche: I should have done it sooner! What was I waiting for?

I know exactly what you mean Paige. It’s amazing for me to go from legally blind to vision that is better than perfect.Before I had LASIK I thought that wearing contact lenses was no big thing, but after having surgery I see how inconvienced I was. Now everything is clear with no hassel. I am so happy with my new vision from Dr. Khanna and will be grateful for the rest of my life
