Stock 1000 Rider Champion
Vision problem: Compound myopic astigmatism
Procedure: LASIK 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.
FemtoLASIK surgery on Gabriele’s eyes treated compound myopic astigmatism. Before surgery, Gabriele was no longer able to tolerate the poor vision he had with contact lenses while riding at high speeds. Sharp and stable vision is essential for riding a Stock 1000 motorcycle at over 186 mph (300 kph).
Final refractive outcome: 20/10 visual acuity.
