LASIK in the Military

Without a doubt, clear vision is of unlimited benefit to men and women serving in our military. However, service members, just like civilians, can suffer from refractive errors that interfere with their daily duties. In the past, the military has dealt with this by issuing eye glasses to personnel, but as anyone with glasses knows, this type of eyewear can be cumbersome and may even be more of a hassle than a solution.

Beverly Hills LASIK doctor Rajesh Khanna supports our troops. If you are in the military and would like to permanently correct your vision, Dr. Khanna would be happy to meet with you, discuss your options, and help you determine the best way to obtain crystal clear, prescription-free sight.

Military Policy Regarding LASIK

In some cases, laser vision correction prior to enlisting can be a medical disqualifier. However, the US military allows soldiers, airmen, seamen, and other service members to undergo LASIK once they have joined.

It is best if you first discuss your wish to have LASIK with senior officers prior to committing to the procedure. Dr. Khanna can discuss this with you in more detail during your initial consultation.

If you are in the military and are looking for a LASIK doctor, please contact the Khanna Institute of LASIK & Refractive Surgery today to schedule an appointment at our Beverly Hills, California office.
