LASIK study reflects results shown by TLC Custom LASIK Patients. An independent LASIK study recently conducted by the U.S. Navy demonstrates that a Custom LASIK procedure produces better quality outcomes compared to conventional LASIK for vision correction. The LASIK study, the first of its kind, found that 97% of laser vision correction patients treated with Custom LASIK acquired 20/20 vision, versus 88% with conventional LASIK. Custom LASIK can help military personnel see better at night and also avoid the challenges of using glasses or contact lenses in the battlefield. Soldiers who wear eyeglasses must have gas masks with prescription eye inserts that can limit peripheral vision. Custom LASIK aids in limiting this issue.
