NASA Approved

  • At one point, refractive surgery was not approved for astronauts, even though space teams have had issues with glasses and contacts in the past. The extreme zero-gravity conditions that NASA pilots, mission, and payload specialists endure make even simple contact lens care and maintenance an issue.
  • NASA’s decision to allow LASIK in astronauts came after extensive review of the U.S. Navy’s clinical data resulting from the use of both the IntraLase Method and Advanced CustomVue procedure.
  • With today’s advanced LASIK technologies, which feature the use of two lasers instead of one as with earlier forms of the procedure, patients can not only be confident about their vision, but also that the procedure has proven to be extremely safe as well.

Notable results of clinical trials conducted for the Department of Defense:

  • An evaluation of Custom LASIK in 100 military personnel showed that 95 percent achieved 20/20 uncorrected vision or better; these patients, on average, were previously only able to read the first line (the big “E”) of the vision assessment chart.1
  • In an evaluation of 785 aviators, 89% of Navy pilots rated their ability to land on an aircraft carrier as moderately to significantly better after laser vision correction. None said it was worse after surgery.2
  • A separate study determined that over 90 percent of marksmen had improvement in marksmanship skills after laser vision correction; a significant result given the visual precision of marksmen.3
