Houston, Texas 1/26/2007 10:36 PM GMT (TransWorldNews) (, the world's largest Christian portal with twelve million monthly page loads, has just launched a directory of health related articles that include information about Lasik vision correction. Since 1995, laser eye surgery has become a popular procedure that is performed on an estimated one million eyes per year. "We want to keep the public informed," explained ChristiaNet's president, Bill Cooper, "Especially when a magnitude of people are seeking surgical procedures which are optional. Our research department discovered many facts about laser eye surgery and we want anyone considering this procedure to get an education before making a decision to proceed." (

"Interestingly," continued Cooper, "Lasik vision correction has made great advancements in the 11 short years that have followed its beginning. This surgery is being used to treat more than nearsightedness today."

The Medical College of Wisconsin says that, "While traditional Lasik is already a popular treatment, advances in Lasik technology provide for even more personalized Lasik results." The Medical College of Wisconsin also states that the latest in laser eye surgery corrects both the lower and higher order aberrations, reducing side effect risks that follow treatment.

Research shows that Lasik vision correction is available for those who have farsightedness and astigmatism as well as nearsightedness. These procedures are also becoming available to a broader range of patients with diverse vision problems. Laser vision procedures have become faster and can now be accomplished in less than 15 minutes. Laser Assisted Situ Keratomileusis, the technical name for this procedure, is a process that uses laser beams to correct Refractive Instability. Machines using monochromatic beams reshape the cornea, improving refractive light ability, changing the way images are viewed and improving the patient's vision.

Even with the advancements in laser technology, there are still those who are not good candidates for laser eye surgery. ChristiaNet encourages people to gather adequate information about the facts and accomplish a fair amount of research before undergoing eye surgery. Also, possible candidates should have all of their questions satisfied when discussing options with the attending surgeon. "We believe that Lasik vision surgery is relatively safe, but side-effects do exist," explained Cooper. "Information will help those considering lasik surgery make sound decisions."
