What is LASIK?
LASIK is a procedure that uses a laser to correct vision in the eye. This surgery is long-lasting and powerful.
Who can benefit from LASIK?
Anyone who needs their vision corrected, but has a stable vision. Those who wear corrective lenses may find that they need their glasses less or not at all. That is one less thing to carry with you to work.
Some Government and Military Personnel That Can Benefit from Lasik:
- PMI Instructors
- Flight officers
- Military police
- US Navy SEALs
- US Army Special Forces/Rangers
- US Marine Corps Recon
- US Marshals
- Military doctors
- Military photographers
NASA approved LASIK surgery for astronauts in 2007. They found that those who received advanced corrective surgery had an acuity of 20/16, which is better than 20/20.
Another boon of LASIK for government and military personnel is that it does not require many visits to maintain. This perk means more time for the mission at hand and less time in the doctor’s office.
Those Who May Not Be a Good Fit For LASIK
If you are younger than 18, your vision is still developing -- because of this, waiting to get LASIK may be a good idea. Those who are pregnant or currently ill may want to wait until their circumstances change. You may find that your vision corrects itself later.
