Love Sport? Improve your Performance with Laser Eye Surgery

Published on 22nd January 2016 by Dr Stephen Doyle

How many top sports stars do you see wearing glasses? We’re guessing the answer is not many. That’s because to be exceptional you need great eyesight. When you’re competing at the top level of your sport flaws in your vision can mean the difference between finishing first, or last.

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.
