iLasik Technology

iLasik Technology
It is important for people with high risk jobs to have perfect vision. The U.S military through the Department of Defense (DOD) and NASA have undertaken an important mission to correct the eye problems of its personnel. These two agencies have adopted the reliable LASIK technology to improve the vision of their highly trained personnel.

“The DOD and NASA have validated the fact that today’s LASIK exceeds all established standards of safety and effectiveness,” said Steven Schallhorn, M.D., a retired U.S. Navy captain. A pioneer in clinical research who has studied LASIK information for the DOD about the use of LASIK.

The iLASIK Procedure also known as Modern LASIK uses 2 lasers instead of just one. The first stage of iLASIK consists of analysing the characteristics of the person's eye with the use of wave-front technology. An ultra fast, computer-guided laser creates a corneal flap. This procedure replaces the handheld microkeratome blade used in former forms of LASIK. After the flap is created, the wave-front mapping data guides a second laser for vision correction. Together these two laser technologies ensures a safe procedure which guarantees reliable visual results.

So far the results have proven that 95% of the 100 military personnel who underwent modern LASIK are now rewarded with 20/20 vision. Dr. Schallhorn further states “technologically speaking, there is no better time than now to join the over 12 million Americans who have benefited from LASIK."
