Wearing contact lenses or prescription glasses is not conducive to playing many sports. In the past 10 years, there has been a tremendous increase in Orlando LASIK procedures being performed on athletes throughout the Central Florida area. The popularity of LASIK among athletes results from their desire to be at the top of their game. The sharpest vision attainable through LASIK, without the danger of injury resulting from wearing contact lenses or framed glasses, provides athletes the safest and most accurate participation in their sport of choice.
The basic definition of LASIK is the correction of nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism with a surgical procedure. A laser is the surgical instrument used to repair the corneal shape, which restores focus. This allows for better focusing of light on the back of the retina which dramatically improves vision.
Athletes who have chosen LASIK are cautioned to schedule at least two weeks of downtime away from the strenuous participation in their sport so that the eyes have a safe period in which to heal. While most patients may return to work the next day, all patients who have the LASIK procedure are encouraged to stay away from strenuous activities to reduce the possibility of irritating or traumatizing their eyes.
Many professional athletes have chosen to have LASIK, which has resulted in their improved vision and allowed them to ditch dependency on glasses and contact lenses. LeBron James, Greg Maddux, Dwyane Wade, Troy Aikman, and Vijay Singh are just a few of today’s athletes who now enjoy life without the wearing of glasses or contacts.
