LASIK for First Responders & the Military
As first responders and military personnel, perhaps the most physically and emotionally-challenging professions in America, you must be extremely cautious about your health and physical abilities in order to do your job well. Fumbling with glasses or wrestling with irritated contacts can jeopardize not only your career, but your life and the life of others around you.
With such high stakes, we understand the importance of flawless vision and the impact on maintaining your M.O.S., but we also know you may have some reservations about the safety of eye surgery and which procedure is right for you.
Traditionally, military personnel were restricted from having LASIK surgery because of the risk associated with the flap incision. While PRK eye surgery, a procedure very similar to LASIK eye surgery, provides the same caliber results, the military has recently begun to allow LASIK procedures. Check with your commanding officer for more information.
LaserVue has treated hundreds of Police Officers, Paramedics, Fire Fighters and Military personnel.
