Horse Riding champion
Visual defect: Myopia
Surgery: ReLEx SMILE
Dr Angelo Appiotti performed ReLEx SMILE surgery to correct myopia.
The surgery had become necessary because the athlete could no more tolerate contact lenses that did not stay in place during competition, affecting the athlete concentration and performance between obstacles.
The surgery allowed the athlete to definitively abandon contact lenses.
The final result 7 days after surgery was 20/10 natural visual acuity.
