Plano, Texas (I-Newswire) September 10, 2012 - While it is common for individuals to correct vision problems by wearing glasses or contact lens, many find that these tools can often get in the way of one’s life. A recent FOX News report highlights how such vision problems have affected popular international soccer player, Mario Balotelli. The athlete—forward for Italy’s national team and Manchester City—recently decided to undergo LASIK surgery in an effort to eliminate the need for contacts, which have recently impacted his gameplay. According to another report from NBC News, Balotelli successfully underwent the procedure, although the surgery forced him to sit out of two World Cup qualifiers. In Texas, Boothe Eye Care provides patients with LASIK surgery options under the care of expert ophthalmologist Dr. William Boothe. He notes that Balotelli’s decision to undergo LASIK surgery was a smart one, and one that should be considered by other professionals facing similar problems.
According to FOX News, “Balotelli is near-sighted and has worn contact lenses for years but the lenses have caused allergies recently and an abscess that led to conjunctivitis, which ruled him out of Italy's friendly with England last month.” Boothe Eye Care notes that Balotelli’s experience is one that is common among athletes; although contact lens may be hard to notice and are often comfortable, those who are physically active outdoors can experience a wide array of complications. Before the procedure, Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini stated, “He can’t delay any longer. Mario can't handle the contact lenses anymore. He's better now but it could become a bother again at any time.”
Dr. William Boothe—who has performed over 130,000 LASIK procedures—comments, “Boothe Eye Care patients pursue LASIK for a variety of reasons—but the one connecting theme is that it is convenient and makes life a little bit easier. While Balotelli sought out LASIK surgery to avoid contact use and improve his gameplay, it is important to note that LASIK can improve the lives of many other professionals as well who are constantly at odds with their glasses or contacts.” Although LASIK technology has improved since its introduction, many are still reluctant to seek out the surgery. Boothe Eye Care welcomes patients to address their concerns in order to help them discover that LASIK is a relatively safe procedure that delivers exceptional results.
