Laser Eye Surgery Benefits for Police Personnel

Tuesday, 27 October, 2009

For many professionals who rely heavily on their eyesight, such as police officers, firemen, paramedics, pilots and soldiers, laser vision correction can be the perfect solution, providing better eye sight than was achievable with glasses and contact lenses.

Optical Express is one of the leading technological innovators in the field of laser vision correction, with over 200 locations across the UK, Europe and US. They continually invest in the most sophisticated technology and each of their laser clinics use the VISX S4 IR laser; the same technology approved by NASA for use on astronauts. This is combined with a commitment to the highest levels of patient care and clinical excellence.

Their Surgeons have carried out over 600,000 procedures and are world leaders in the field of refractive surgery. Mr. Steve Schallhorn, Chairman of the Optical Express International Medical Advisory Board, is widely acknowledged as one of the most respected refractive surgeons in the world. Before joining Optical Express, Mr. Schallhorn was Director of Corneal Service and Refractive Surgery with the US Navy; creating, initiating and directing the Department of Defence refractive surgery programme. Prior to entering medical school, Mr. Schallhorn was a Naval Aviator and TOP GUN instructor in the US Navy, giving him a true insight into the benefits of precise vision in high-pressure environments.

Optical Express changes the lives of thousands of patients every year; a large percentage of whom are emergency service workers. They often receive feedback from these patients on the impact it has made to their personal and working lives, and the most common response following treatment is, "I only wish I'd done it sooner".
