It is a requisite for NASA and US military personnel tasked to do critical missions to have an almost 20/20 vision. Being mere humans, we cannot help but have disabilities like myopia and hyperopia as we age. For the last five years, LASIK technology has been a popular means to treat such ailments for non civilians. The Department of Defense and NASA are all for the use of an all-laser form of LASIK to improve the visions of their personnel delegated to extreme, physically demanding conditions. The DOD and NASA even validated the safety of LASIK surgery.

A new class of LASIK is now being introduced for use. It is called iLASIK Procedure. Basically the earlier LASIK uses only one laser for the whole procedure. With iLASIK, two lasers are used. The first is a wave-front technology maps the unique characteristics of the individual’s eyes after which an ultrafast laser creates a corneal flap. This is the laser that took the place of the handheld microkeratome blade used in the old procedure. The second laser is then guided by the wave-front mapping data to correct the vision. It is good to note that 95% of those treated achieved a 20/20 vision. There is more LASIK information available at the site.
