I was very excited upon hearing about this iLASIK technology not only because my husband is in the Military its also the fact that he is having some problems with his eyes. He doesn't have a 20/20 vision and have to wear eye glasses when reading a book or magazine. He get's headaches from time to time, so maybe I will talk to him about LASIK technology so that he will understand more about iLASIK procedure. I will also asked him if this kind of surgery is covered by our insurance.
For five years NASA and the U.S. Military have increased personnel performance on critical missions using laser vision correction technologies that civilians have benefited as well. The Department of Defense (DOD) has been working hand in hand with NASA to improve the vision of specialized personnel facing extreme, physically demanding conditions. According to Steven Schallhorn, M.D., today’s LASIK exceeds all established standards of safety and effectiveness, He is also the leader of clinical research done for the DOD regarding the use of LASIK.
A 100% of naval aviators having undergone the procedure would recommend the surgery to other naval aviators. During the military evaluation 95% of personnel who went through iLASIK has achieved 20/20 vision or better. This only means that ilasik is safe and very effective.
Here are some added LASIK information that will be useful to those who are in need or planning to have iLASIK procedure to improve their vision.
