Khanna Institute to Provide Intacs Corneal Implants in Beverly Hills
Date:4/13/2010

Intacs corneal implants which help keratocnus patients and may be covered by medical insurance will be provided by Khanna institute in Beverly Hills

(Vocus) April 13, 2010 -- Khanna Institute, which expanded into Beverly Hills, California and provided its patients with countless solutions for eye and sight problems, hereby announces that it is offering its Beverly Hills patients the opportunity to obtain a product known as Intacs Corneal Implants, which is an innovation designed to help patients suffering from a condition known as keratoconus.


Keratoconus is an eye condition that’s progressive in nature and which attacks the cornea, which is the clear surface that exists on the front of the eye. As the disease advances, patients who suffer from it tend to lose their ability to see to the point where corrective eye glasses or contact lenses are no longer a viable solution. Eventually, patients will progress to the point of blindness. and those suffering from this condition are encouraged to learn more about the product and the solutions available.

Traditionally, the only potential solution available to patients who have contracted keratoconus is to undergo corneal transplant surgery. This procedure carries with it some degree of risk and is also generally extremely expensive, such that many patients face a difficult choice regarding how to proceed. Intacs Corneal Implants provide patients with a cost-effective, minimally surgical alternative that allows them to regain their ability to see. This product has obtained approval from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Specifically, Intacs Corneal Implants provide the following benefits to patients:
*   Intacs are safe, removable and replaceable
*   Intacs reduce myopia and astigmatism associated with keratocunus
*   Intacs restore the cornea to its normal shape
*   A much shorter recovery time for the patient as compared to corneal implants
*   Intacs shift the optical center towards the corneal center
*   Intacs decrease Higher order aberrations
*   Intacs can be used along with corneal cross linkage.
Dr.Khanna has helped many patients with keratoconus regain useful vision and improve their activities of daily living. It will be heartening for keratoconus patients in Beverly Hills to know that many insurances cover some of the cost with Intacs implants
