San Diego Has Same LASIK Technology As NASA.
Clearview Eye & Laser Medical Center:
WHAT: The National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) for the first time has approved the use of advanced LASIK to improve the vision of its astronauts. While more than 11 million LASIK procedures have been performed to-date, it wasn't until LASIK developed into an all-laser procedure that NASA approved it for use on astronauts who face the extreme, physical challenges of space travel and zero gravity. Today's advanced LASIK features the use of two lasers, instead of one as in earlier forms of the procedure, providing superior safety and taking patients to 20/20 vision and beyond. WHAT: The NASA decision was made following review of extensive military clinical data using Advanced CustomVue LASIK with the IntraLase Method which showed the combination of wavefront and femtosecond laser technologies provides superior safety and vision. WHO: Dr. Sandy Feldman, an AMO FDA clinical investigator from San Diego, is available to explain the following: -- Why even consumers' most-extreme lifestyles are nothing compared to being ejected from an F16 or the G-Forces of atmospheric blastoff. -- How these considerations affect the military's review of LASIK's safety and effectiveness. -- The technology behind Advance CustomVue LASIK with the IntraLase method. -- How NASA's approval validates LASIK's safety and visual outcomes. -- The considerations patients should keep in mind when choosing LASIK.
