Eye injury is the primary hazard associated with laser use.
A baseline laser eye examination program allows for pre-injury examination and preventive early diagnosis of eye problems (glaucoma).
Using portable equipment and a simplified exam format, and staffed by corpsmen and eye care providers, a rapid and accurate large-scale program that is cost efficient can be instituted.
A single location for ophthalmic information coupled with recent refraction data will enhance readiness for deployment.
For service members and their providers, a new and well-run eye care program will foster a strong and positive bond with the medical department.
