Yes there are contact lenses, but we all know what a faff they can be, and there’s the risk of them falling out during that all important match, or getting an eye infection.
That’s why many top sports people have chosen laser eye surgery to ensure their performance is the best it can be.
Golfers Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Vijay Singh; Olympic rowers Sir Steve Redgrave and Tom Solesbury; athletes Jonathan Edwards and Daley Thompson; to name just a few.
But it’s not just professional sports stars that have seen the benefits of laser eye surgery, plenty of our sporty patients have too.
One of our patient’s explains just how fantastic it is to go swimming AFTER laser eye surgery.
And having laser eye surgery certainly won’t slow you down on the sports front. As explained here by our surgeon Dr Stephen Doyle, you’ll usually be back to full fitness after a week or so.
All eye surgical procedures carry a level of risk including not obtaining the desired outcome, through to varying levels of visual loss. Your eye surgeon will discuss the risks and benefits, including ones specific to your circumstances, at the time of your pre-operative consultation.
