The National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA) has approved All-Laser Lasik technologies for use on U.S. astronauts. The NASA decision was made following review of extensive military clinical data, which showed the combination of femtosecond laser (IntraLase) for LASIK flap creation and wavefront-guided excimer laser for corneal sculpting provides superior safety and vision.

“NASA’s approval is further evidence that today’s LASIK exceeds all established standards of safety and effectiveness,” said Steven Schallhorn, M.D., retired captain of the U.S. Navy, investigator in multiple studies involving use of LASIK and other refractive surgeries for treatment of nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism, and Medical Director for Optical Express.
