Lasik surgery for military personnel

Lasik surgery has helped millions of people in the United States see more clearly without having to wear glasses or contact lenses.

Lasik is a type of refractive surgery, which addresses nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, and other problems, known as “refractive errors.”

People benefit from improved vision and reduced (or eliminated) dependence on prescription eyeglasses and contacts.

What’s useful for you to know that is the U.S. Department of Defense issues vision waivers to thousands of soldiers and pilots to undergo vision correction and laser eye repair.

Lasik is now a common procedure to help service members qualify for and maintain their military career. Due to the rigorous difficulties of the job top military commanders support Lasik for military personnel.

Military personnel have to perform at a consistently high level which demands peak eyesight and clear vision, especially while on active duty, deployed to hostile locations, or operating at night. In such situations Lasik is the best solution.

Two of the most important reasons that Lasik is the right choice for the military is the significantly faster visual recovery and more rapid return to full duty that Lasik allows.
