Contact lenses are impracticle on the battlefield. Eyeglasses can be scratched, lost or fog up. Believing that freedom from glasses or contact lenses improves combat readiness, the Department of Defense has established the Warfighter Refractive Surgery Program. LASIK and PRK surgery featuring CustomVue, the exact same technology we utilize at the Laser Eye Center of Carolina, is being offered to correct the vision of soldiers, sailors and aviators. The response has been overwhelming and military surgeons can’t keep up with the demand. The Laser Eye Center of Carolina is proud to support our military and has offered a discount to enlisted military for several years. Numerous enlisted personnel have taken us up on our offer and the emails we receive from overseas thanking us couldn’t be more gratifying.
