Are there athletes who’ve had LASIK surgery procedures and benefited from it?
Hi, it’s Dr. Chotiner from Memorial Eye Institute. If you’re thinking about LASIK, in this video, I’ll address one of the most common questions people tend to ask: ‘Are there athletes who’ve had LASIK surgery procedures and benefited from it?’’.
LASIK is a great option for athletes who want to see the field clearly without having glasses or contacts. Of course, contact sports like football require this most of all because they involve close physical proximity between competitors
Even the best football players can’t see what they are doing without their glasses. Troy Aikman, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback and one of America’s most famous athletes had laser surgery on his eyes when he was just 14 years old because there were too many difficulties with contacts that left him unable to read anything at 20/600 vision!
After having this procedure done in 1998 everything changed, and his vision improved from 20/600 to 20/20.
Other famous athletes who’ve experienced impressive and life-boosting results from LASIK include:
- Tiki Barber – NFL superstar
- Wayne Chrebet – Former New York Jet
- Greg Maddux – Former Atlanta Braves pitcher and four-time Cy Young Award winner
- Tiger Woods – Professional Golfer
- LeBron James – NBA Legend
That said, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to enjoy the benefits of LASIK surgery.
