Why Do Sports Stars Choose Boothe Eye Care Center?
Many sports stars including football players and referees chose to have their laser eye surgery done where they were able to improve their vision. Kaka, the Brazilian football star and FIFA World Player in 2007 suffered from nearsightedness and astigmatism. After his IntraLasik procedure, he was ecstatic from the successful outcome of his vision correction
Lasik eye correction surgery is a great solution for major athletes who depend on their vision condition to succeed in their professional sport. Eyeglasses and contacts are cumbersome and are uncomfortable when playing a game. Glasses can be broken or may slip off during physical contact. Contact lenses can also slip out of place during a game. In addition, contact lenses are limited to correcting vision in early morning and late evening. That is why players with regular practices cannot use contact lenses all of the time – because they are restricted by daylight hours. By using eyeglasses or contact lenses, the player never feels confident which can affect their game play. Even referees rely on their eyesight in order to fairly judge the moves of the game.
Thor Orrason , a FIFA referee, was one of the referees who corrected their vision with Lasik surgery. He used sporting eyeglasses and contact lenses for about twenty years and finally underwent laser eye surgery in 2005.
