(NAPSI)—Did you know the U.S. military relies on LASIK and other laser vision correction procedures to make sure service members have the vision needed for operational success and safety? Good vision can be a matter of life and death in combat situations or landing a fighter jet on an aircraft carrier.

Military duty can involve harsh environments, with sand, dust, smoke and debris flying around making corrective lenses, both glasses and contacts, useless and even dangerous.
