He has been in the field of eye surgery for over twenty five years. He has been helping people see better for a long time. His passion to help people with Keratoconus eye disease led him to get specialized training in hard contact lens twenty years ago. He realized these lenses were very troublesome. They caused irritation, redness and even fell off the eye. Worse they caused scarring of the cornea by rubbing against the bulging cornea. Dr. Khanna decided to get further medical and surgical training in keratoconus at University of Cincinnati in mid nineties.

Dr.Khanna has been performing insertion of Intacs for over a decade. In fact he was amongst the first in Los Angeles to master the art and science of intacs technology. He was certified by the manufacturer  of intacs – Addition Technology. As his experience grew he imbibed new technology. Dr.Khanna now even implants newer thicker ring segments. He loves extreme precision in keratoconus eyes.  He has evolved  from the mechanical prolate system for intacs insertion to laser guided intacs placement. He acquired an ocular coherence tomography to map the thickness of the cornea suffering from Keratoconus. He calculates a predetermined depth to engage the laser for channel creation. Than he effortlessly slips the ring segments in.

Younger patients with Keratoconus require early intervention with Cornea cross linking with Riboflavin. Dr. Khanna performs Cxl  or epi on cross linking to halt the progression of keratoconus. His calm nature helps the teenagers and young adults to undergo this therapy
