NASA's report on iLasik technology

Have you heard or read this news today? Based on LASIK information, NASA and the US military now uses LASIK. According to Steven Schallhorn, M.D., a retired U.S. Navy captain, “The Department of Defense (DOD) and NASA have validated the fact that today’s LASIK exceeds all established standards of safety and effectiveness.” Dr. Schallhorn is the leader in clinical research that studies for the DOD regarding the use of LASIK.

You maybe wondering what LASIK technology is all about? LASIK is a new technology to correct eye’s vision. This is an alternative to wearing corrective eyeglasses or contact lenses. LASIK- short for Laser-Assisted inSsitu Keratomileusis is a kind of refractive laser eye surgery performed by experienced, licensed iLASIK surgeons. They are experts for correcting myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism.This modern LASIK which is known as iLasik procedure uses two laser instead of one. In the first stage of iLASIK, wave-front technology maps the unique characteristics of the individual’s eyes. Then, an ultra fast, computer-guided laser creates a corneal flap. This laser replaces the handheld microkeratome blade used in older forms of LASIK and makes the procedure exceptionally safe. After the flap is created, the wave-front mapping data guides a second laser for vision correction. The iLASIK procedure is the result of a decade's worth of technical refinement; it combines all of the most advanced all-laser LASIK technology in one efficient LASIK platform, which makes this procedure painless and safe.

According to the report on military’s evaluation of modern LASIK, 100% of naval aviators who undergone the procedure say they would also recommend the surgery to other naval aviators. More of these information can be found at their website at
