That's encouraging though...rare for the AF to help out with the pay?
Both the USAF and USN will perfrorm LASIC and PRK. USN does it at the Corneal Refractive Surgery center in San Diego. Can't recall where the USAF does it. To my knowlege, LASIC is still disallowed for pilots. It is allowed for other aircrew (I know some B-1 backseaters) and for groundpounders. It's considered force enhancement.
BTW the opthomologists I know at the USN center tell me that dispite the media hype, they are still getting better results (i.e. better correction) with PRK than LASIC. Wavefront LASIC is better than straight PRK, but wavefront PRK is better than wavefront LASIC.
I wouldn't risk what's allowed/disallowed by going to a civillian eye-cutter. If the AF aproves it (for your job) they will help you take care of it. Currently direct combat warfighters have priority. (duh)
