You play football, basketball, and do mountain biking as well as rappelling. You're headed for the championships, where contact lenses and glasses might mean the difference between defeat and the gold.
When an athlete is choosing a LASIK doctor, the athlete should ask a coach or trainer for referrals to sports vision doctors. A sports vision specialist is aware of the special vision needs of athletes, particularly hand-eye-body coordination. Your sports ophthalmologist should ideally be a LASIK doctor as well.
If your coach or trainer can't recommend a sports vision specialist, try the American Optometric Association Sports Vision Section for referrals.
Choosing a LASIK surgeon who is a sports vision specialist combination is a great way to get your game on and go for the gold.
