Dr Khanna is known for Advanced Refractive surgery like all laser Lasik. He has popularized PIE, a term coined by him which is short for Presbyopic Implant in Eye.

New FDA approved options for people who want to decrease dependency on glasses and contacts. Most people may be able to even get rid of their glasses forever.

Raindrop is another aid to help people suffering with presbyopia. A flap like lasik is created with femtosecond laser. A raindrop implanted and the flap put back. Raindrop is a plastic segment which increases corneal thickness and refracting power. It can stay there for the rest of the patients life, or if dissatisfied it can be removed.
I Design is a precision controlled advanced method of wafering lasik eye surgery. A computer measures exact treatment needed and transfers data to the latest generation of laser. The laser recognizes the eye and precisely tracks and delivers the treatment.
Smile Lasik Eye Surgery is the next generation of laser vision correction. This all laser procedure does not even create a flap. It fashions a disc within the cornea This piece of it decreases the chance of dry eyes. It removes tissue from the weaker part of the cornea so theoretically does not affect the strength of the cornea like in lasik eye surgery.
