Wynne, Srinivasan and Samuel Blum, who receives the award posthumously, were honored with the country's most prestigious award given to leading innovators for technological achievement, for their discovery of a new form of laser surgery that enabled LASIK and PRK eye surgery. Today more than 25 million people worldwide have benefited from the procedure. This is the tenth time IBM has received the National Medal of Technology and Innovation.
