Vision Problem: Compound Myopic Astigmatism
Dr. Angelo Appiotti performed PRK 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.
PRK surgery on Emanuele’s eyes successfully treated compound myopic astigmatism and eliminated his dependence on contact lenses, which prevented him from competing safely. A professional skier needs to make split-second decisions and a perfect vision is key to top performance.
Final refractive outcome: 20/20 visual acuity 7 days after surgery.
