Night Vision after LASIK

Night Vision after LASIK

When counseling patients as to whether they are good candidates for LASIK or not, I’m often asked about the effect the surgery may have on their night-vision. With older LASIK technologies, night vision was sometimes adversely affected. Recently, though, a fantastic study came out of the military. The LASIK eye surgeons who perform the vision correction procedure on the military pilots studied the pilots’ quality of vision at night before and after surgery. Not only did they find that the procedure did not worsen night vision, they were shocked to find that night vision was improved with the combination of using the Intralase laser to create the flap and the CustomVue laser to correct the vision! Can you imagine what sort of advantage it can create for a fighter pilot to have improved night vision? In fact, as a result of this study, the military has now said that all enlisted who are good candidates are approved to have CustomVue LASIK with Intralase. Now that’s a government with a vision if you ask me!
