NASA using iLASIK

Sun, Aug 31, 2008

General

Eyes are a very important sense organs of the human body. After all they enable you to see all the beauty of mother nature. But many of us dont have perfect eyes. We are either myopic or hyperopia that is we either cant see far off objects or we have difficulty in seeing near by objects. There are many methods of correcting your vision like wearing vision correcting glasses or contact lens but there are a few other ways too. LASIK is one such procedure.

What is LASIK? LASIK or laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis is a technique in which opthalmologists use LASER to correct a person’s vision.

But now we have an even more improved version of LASIK. Its called the iLASIK.iLASIK uses two lasers instead of one, as in earlier versions of the procedure. Its much more safe as compared to its earlier versions as this laser replaces the handheld microkeratome blade used in older forms of LASIK and makes the procedure exceptionally safe. Its a much improved version of LASIK to provide a custom fit procedure to provide safe and excellent results.
Even NASA and DoD(Department of Defense,US) are using an all LASER version of LASIK to improve visions of personnel going on tough missions. 95% of the millitary personnel achieved 20/20 uncorrected vision or better. 100% naval aviators who had undergone the procedure said they would recommend the surgery to other naval aviators. So benefit from the latest LASIK technology which has benefited more than 12 million people in America alone already. You can read some more LASIK information here.

    Very interesting post Mayank.

    I knew Lasik is used massively but didn’t knew the Navy was systematically using it to get perfect vision for their personnel.

    Too bad most people cannot afford it.

    Have you tried to post that on Slashdot, i’m sure it would catch the attention of many Geeks there… but beware the Slashdot effect!

    Anyway, continue your great work, your content is very interesting.
