We have been seeing lots of reports about LASIK surgery for baseball players lately, and it is not difficult to see why. During the season, professional athletes spend a lot of time on dusty fields and are constantly visiting cities with different climates and allergens. These can both lead to intense eye irritation, especially for those who wear contact lenses. Because of the irritation that occurs when contacts lenses get dirty or dry out mid-game, they might not be the best option for players, as we have seen lately.
At the Atlanta Vision Institute, we encourage people with active lifestyles to look into LASIK because of these reasons. If you are personally familiar with the annoyances of leading an active lifestyle with contact lenses, visit our Atlanta LASIK Surgery page or give us a call to find out more about the procedure and if it is right for you.
