New Cutting Edge Technology Restores Sight to Patient Gwendolyn Hayes

Recent advances in eye care technology may be of help to the visually challenged.

Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB)April 9, 2009 -- New advanced technology, called PRELEX has restored sight to Khanna Institute patient, Gwendolyn Hayes. This recently FDA approved technology has granted vision to Hayes, who was legally blind, slowly losing light from her vision. Gwendolyn is now able to read and write without glasses, seeing for the first time in 40 years. She describes it as a 'miracle'.

"Other doctors told me there was nothing they could do," says Hayes. "I was heading towards blindness. Then I came to Dr. Khanna. Dr. Khanna not only restored my vision, but it's better than I ever imagined."

This was possible through the cutting edge technology of PRELEX combined with crystal lens high definition. PRELEX is a safe 10 minute procedure using custom designed restore 3D or crystalens HD implants inside the eye. Gwendolyn can now see far and near in each eye. This has allowed her to continue and improve her daily activities and maintain her independence. The crystalens implants work with the eye's natural muscle to accommodate near, immediate and distance subjects. This preserves binocular vision and depth of field. Crystalens comes closest to mirroring the functions of the natural lens.

Hayes says, "I want to spread the message and let others know of his [Dr. Khanna great works. That is my mission in life."
