Los Angeles, California and Surrounding Communities
The Khanna Institute of LASIK & Refractive Surgery is an ophthalmological practice that offers the most advanced options to its patients in LASIK and other refractive surgeries. We also treat a number of common eye conditions experienced by our patients.
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States. However, it is also one of the most preventable causes of blindness, if detected early. The Khanna Institute offers routine glaucoma screening to all our patients. We offer many forms of treatment–including the latest glaucoma treatment, Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT)–of all types of glaucoma.
A cataract is a cloudy area in the eye’s lens. Cataracts are a normal consequence of aging, and they increase over time, beginning as a slight distortion of vision–such as a dimming of color–and potentially leading to near-total blindness. The treatment of cataracts involves lens replacement therapy, and the Khanna Vision Institute offers the most advanced lenses available for this purpose.
Dry eye results in itching, burning, redness, watery eyes and blurred vision, and it is one of the most commonly suffered eye conditions. We offer many treatments for dry eye, including punctual occlusion, in which we decrease the rate at which tears drain away from your eye, reducing the frequency of dry eye.
Diabetic retinopathy is a degenerative condition of the retina which can cause blindness in diabetes sufferers. However, through early screening and intervention, diabetic retinopathy can be managed and its effects minimized.
A pterygium is a growth of the clear tissue that lays over the white part of the eye. It typically starts on the part of the eye nearest the nose, and may initially only be subject to slight irritation. Pterygia can grow over the cornea, and in turn leading to vision loss. Even before this, they can cause distortion in the shape of the cornea, creating or worsening astigmatism. At the Khanna Institute of LASIK and Refractive Surgery, we offer the most advanced treatments available for pterygium, including suture-less, painless surgery.
These are some of the more common vision problems treated by the Khanna LASIK and Refractive Surgery Institute, and represent just a sample of the procedures we offer. Schedule a vision problem consultation today to learn more.
