LASIK Surgery Success Stories

Jul 22, 2008
In the last 10 years LASIK corrective eye surgery has become very widespread. We have now seen super star athletes use LASIK. These stars depend on their eyes to make a living.

LASIK surgery seems like a scary proposition. Can't you go blind? Well, there is some risk. Let's see what has happened to some athletes that have had the surgery.

The biggest name that comes to mind is Tiger Woods. Can't think of anyone bigger. He had LASIK done in 1999 to shed his contacts and improve his vision. He now sees at an impressive 20-15 without his contacts.

For a batter in baseball, the quality of his vision is undeniably critical. Without very good vision it is virtually impossible to hit a baseball at big league standards. Some baseball players have used LASIK, risking their careers if vision was degraded.

Greg Maddox, all-star pitcher has had the surgery. He went on a long run of good pitching after the operation. He sees at 20-15 now.

Maddox denies that the surgery had anything to do with his win streak. HE did the surgery for off field reasons. He never thought it would make much difference on the mound.

Hitters would feel a definite benefit from improved vision. Both Jeff Bagwell and Bernie Williams have had the surgery. Because they have strong career stats, it's hard to gauge the effect of the surgery on their performance at the plate.

It's when you here these players talk about life after LASIK surgery that you get an idea of how it is for them. Maddox talks about how nice it is to just sit and watch TV now. Bernie Williams feels it is simply a miracle.

For Tiger there were a couple of helpful issues. He can have allergy problems. Wearing contacts with an allergy can make playing difficult.

The surgery had another positive effect. Everything he saw seemed bigger and more defined. He feels this has helped him read long putts better.

One thing is for sure. If these great athletes feel it's safe enough to risk losing millions of dollars, then we should all feel safe. Millions of people have had successful LASIK surgery.
