Khanna Vision Institute jumps to the 22nd century. With the introduction of the latest eye technology, patients will be able to be seen by the doctor no matter where he is. For many, traveling to see a top-notch, busy refractive surgeon is a challenge due to scheduling conflicts or the drive is too far. Khanna Vision Institute has introduced new technology that makes it more convenient for people to get the opinion of superdoctor Rajesh Khanna, MD. He has been selected as a superdoctor by the Los Angeles Times for the third consecutive year. So there is a need for people to consult him.
This performance is achieved through the latest cutting-edge technology of ophthalmic instruments such as video slit lamps, digital phoropters, fundus cameras, and ocular coherence tomography. The equipment is operated by highly skilled technicians. The data, images, and results are uploaded in real-time to a cloud-based HIPPA certified Electronic Health Record System. Dr. Khanna reviews them in real-time and interacts with the patient via EHR video chat or Google workspace. The doctor discusses his findings with the patient and can also listen to the patient’s concerns.
Dr. Rajesh Khanna said, “I founded Khanna Vision Institute to set a standard in the industry for patient convenience and thoroughness, and using remote technology to make it easier for the people was the next logical step.” These telehealth robotic exams are non-contact, painless exams. These are not online exams being performed by software, like the ones used by optical chains.
“Our exams preserve the human interaction between doctor and patient,” commented Dr. Khanna. Since a major concern for patients is to be sure that they are being examined by a real doctor, Khanna Vision Institute wants to make sure that these are real examinations that are only done remotely. There will still be another doctor on-site at each location.
Another important feature of being able to perform these examinations remotely is to help the patient reduce his travel time. For example, if the doctor is in Beverly Hills that day, but the patient is in the office in Moorpark, he can see the patient’s records and talk to him even though they are 40 miles apart. Debbie surmised it well ” I went in for an annual exam for glasses. When I enquired about Lasik eye surgery, I was expecting to be just given some pamphlets. Instead, I was examined for candidacy and had a tele-exam with Dr. Khanna right away, Wow it took all hesitancy away and I am already looking forward to my painless Lasik eye surgery.”
