The United States National Medal of Technology and Innovation was recently awarded to Gholam A. Peyman, Phd MD for his patended LASIK procedure.
Since his patent’s approval in 1989, people worldwide have seen the incredible results from laser vision correction. People who wore glasses their whole lives were now living healthy, active lifestyles without the hindrances of glasses or contact lenses.
The medal itself, which was presented by the president of the United States, is a national honor for Dr. Peyman, who continues to do research in the field of ophthalmology today. He believes that research is the key to the goal of curing blindness throughout the world.
