Lasik then, iLasik now

I am really amazed at how the latest technology can do to our everyday lives.  It helps us manage our daily tasks so easily and simplify hard-to-do jobs.  It can also help correct and cure medical and physical defects.  An example is the Lasik.  Knowing the LASIK information would help you decide to try Lasik.

Lasik has been proven the best cure to eye sight problems, which has benefited most people for more than five years.  And, aside from correcting visual problems, it has helped the U. S. military and NASa increase and enhance the performance of its mission-critical personnel.  The Department of Defense (DOD) and NASA are using this technology to improve the vision of specialized personnel in performing their critical jobs.  And, they confirmed that Lasik has exceeded all established standards of safety and effectiveness.  

LASIK technology has been improved, further developed and modernized.  The new Lasik is now known as iLasik.  The iLasik Procedure now uses two lasers instead of one.  And, therefore, it is more or doubly effective.  It is like saying two heads are better than one.  In the latest stage of iLasik, an ultrafast, computer-guide laser creates a corneal flap, which replaces the handheld microkeratome blade for the older Lasik.  This makes the procedure safer.  Then, the wave-front mapping data guides a second laser for vision correction. 

Military’s evaluaton of the iLasik in 100 military personnel resulted to 95% achievement of 20/20 uncorrected vision or better. 100% of naval aviations, who undergone the procedure, are recommending the surgery to their co-aviators.  Per Dr. Schallhorn, “technologically speaking, there is no better time than now to join the over 12 million Americans who have benefited from LASIK."
