Dr. Khosla offers laser treatments at his main office to correct and prevent glaucoma, and for “After Cataracts”. Our laser treatments can be done right here in our office by Dr. Khosla.
Our Laser treatments include :
YAG Laser Peripheral Iridotomy
This treatment is used in patients with or at risk for angle-closure glaucoma. This condition can cause pressure to build up in the eye, blocking fluid drainage from the eye which causes eye pressure to increase even more dramatically. The cornea can become cloudy; the eye will be very red and can cause severe pain. The laser peripheral iridotomy procedure will lower eye pressure by placing a tiny microscopic hole in the iris to allow the excess pressure to escape. This is in fact the best preventative treatment in eyecare.
YAG Laser Posterior Capsulotomy
About 20% of patients who have had cataract surgery will develop haze on the membrane behind the intraocular lens (IOL) implant. This can result in diminished vision, which can include blurred or hazy vision or significant glare and loss of visual acuity. In the YAG laser capsulotomy procedure, a laser is used to create an opening in the hazy capsule that sits behind the IOL implant which allows you to see more clearly.
Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (coming soon)
SLT, is a form of laser surgery that is used to lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma.It is used when eye drop medications are not lowering the eye pressure enough or are causing significant side effects. It can also be used as initial treatment in glaucoma. SLT has been in use for more than 25 years in the United States and around the world.
