Forget the word LASIK as well as INTRALASE (FEMTOSECOND) from this point onwards. This prurodece is fine for people who work in offices and have little chance of serious head/eye contact. With your activity list and plans for the future, you want to investigate surface orientated prurodeces such as C-TEN (Trans-epithelial laser) or LASEK. These prurodeces offer some pain and a slower recovery, but will not leave permanent corneal flaps in your eye. Enhancement prurodeces are also easier to perform later in life should they be required. You should check the military and airforce requirements with regard to the limitations on pre-operative prescription. Your plan of action should be to investigate a couple of competent providers first (this means skip the likes of Optical Express, Optimax and Ultralase). Undergo a couple of consultations (it is worth gaining a few opinions first). Have a realistic price range in mind (for quality treatment an care you are looking at anywhere from a32500 a34000). Give yourself an adequate amount of time to consider your options. Be realistic of the outcomes this prurodece takes some time for visual recovery and healing, there will be fluctuations. Make sure you follow instructions regarding after care and follow-up appointments. Finally, take your time you've been wearing glasses and contacts for a long time, there is no rush.
