Amazing iLASIK!

It has been noted that the NASA and the US Military have been utilizing laser vision correction technologies making LASIK information pretty valuable in increasing the performance of these personnel. Truly, the Department of Defense (DoD) and the NASA validated that this LASIK technology exceeds all established standards of safety and effectiveness. How does this LASIK technology works? Modern LASIK, also known as the iLASIK procedure, is using two lasers which are different from the earlier version which only uses one. During the first stage of iLASIK, an individual’s unique eye characteristics have been mapped by its wave-front technology after which a corneal lip is created by an ultrafast, computer guided laser. The laser made to create the corneal lip replaces the handheld microkeratome blade which is being used in older LASIK forms that made the procedure exceptionally safe. After creating the flap, there goes the wave-front mapping data that guides the second laser for vision correction. The fusion of these two advanced laser technologies just simply provides a custom-fit procedure that clinically proves its effectiveness in producing excellent safety and visual results. With the benefits done the modern LASIK procedure, it has been noted that among the 100 military personnel that gets to benefit the procedure, 95% achieved a 20/20 uncorrected vision or better. 100% of naval aviators who also underwent the said procedure readily said that they’re going to recommend this Modern LASIK procedure to other naval aviators. With the positive outcome from iLASIK, it is never too late to join the over 12 million Americans who have benefited from LASIK.
