Vision Problem: Myopia and Astigmatism
Procedure: FemtoLASIK and PSP Program
Dr. Angelo Appiotti performed FemtoLASIK surgery in combination with the PSP program (Personal Sportsman Profile), an athlete specific program designed to achieve superior and, above all, stable vision, with fast and accurate eye movements at every change of distance and light.
Elena underwent surgery to treat myopia (1 diopter) associated with astigmatism (2 diopters) in her right eye, and myopia (0.75 diopters) associated with astigmatism (2.5 diopters) in her left eye.
Recovery was immediate. Elena reported a marked improvement in sharpness and overall quality of vision. This will positively affect the perception of fine detail during training and competitions in future athletic performance.
Final refractive outcome: 20/10 visual acuity.
