Nashville, TN (May 2, 2011) - Shofner Vision Center delivers truth about LASIK surgery using online social media outlets and their website www.shofnervisioncenter.com.  Through the use of Facebook, Twitter, Shofner's Blog and website pages, Shofner continues to reveal the facts about what is known to be one of the most fearful, yet safest surgeries for vision correction.
Truth About LASIK Surgery
Laser in situ keratomileusis, or LASIK, is an outpatient surgical procedure used to treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. With LASIK, your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) uses a laser to reshape the cornea (the clear covering of the eye) to improve the way the eye focuses light onto the retina.  An average of over 13,000 LASIK surgeries are performed every WEEK in the U.S. Another known truth about LASIK, according to a study published in the Archives of Ophthalmology, LASIK has been proven safer than wearing contact lens.
By far, the most advanced laser vision correction procedure is the CustomVue Procedure (Custom LASIK).  The truth about Custom LASIK is not only is this procedure affordable, but it also allows Navy pilots the ability to land on aircraft carriers, even at night! Custom LASIK has been approved by NASA Astronauts and Air Force Pilots. The U.S. Military has embraced LASIK realizing glasses and contacts are not functional in a combat situation.
