Is Your Vision Good To Go?

The Military Attacks Vision Problems

The Navy began studying the effects of laser eye surgery in 1993 and a 1996 U.S. Navy PRK study found that every patient in the study had improved. The results were such a success that the Navy immediately purchased an excimer laser. After more years of study, it was determined that all pilots who underwent PRK were able to have their vision restored to the “highest visual classification for a Naval aviator.”

The Army’s first PRK/LASIK site opened in May 2000 at Fort Bragg, N.C. More than 5,000 soldiers from XVIII Airborne Corps and the Special Operations Command have since been treated with outstanding results.

The Walter Reed Center for Refractive Surgery had its first patient in March 2002 and has since performed the procedure on more than 600 patients. The waiting list today is more than six months long.
