iLASIK Information

i have been reading some about this latest technology called Lasik. So what is this anyway? Are you aware of this? LASIK stands for Laser Assisted in Situ Keratomileusis, it is a substitute for wearing eyeglassess and contact lenses. Here are some LASIK information i have found, Today the NASA and U.S. military increase the performance for a critical mission using laser vision correction technologies. The Department of Defense (DOD) and NASA validated the fact that todays Lasik exceeds all established standards of safety and effectiveness. said Steven Schallhorn, M.D. he's a retired US Navy captain and leader of clinical research and studies done for the DOD regarding the use of LASIK.

Todays modern LASIK or known as the iLASIK procedure uses two lasers instead of one. The first stage of iLASIK, wave front technology maps the unique characteristics of the individuals eyes. Then, an ultrafast, 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 combination of these advanced laser technologies creates a custom-fit procedure clinically proven to provide excellent safety and visual results.

This iLASIK procedure showed a 95% among the 100 military achieved a 20/20 vision. That is why they have recommended it to everyone who may be a candidate for this procedure. This is fast and very painless so you need not to worry. Think about it now and set aside those eyeglassess and contact lense you are wearing. Try LASIK technology and get back to a normal and clear vision.

Her are the basic criteria that you should meet to be a candidate for this procedure:

1. You are atleast 21 years old.
2. You are in good general health.
3. You have had a stable vision prescriptionfor atleast one year.
4. You have no existing eye disease.

Can't afford it? well your iLASIK physician and CareCredit will help make it affordable. They will help you finance the procedure for as low as $89 a month.
