Vision Problem: High Myopic Astigmatism
Procedure: PRK TLCT and PSP Program
Dr. Angelo Appiotti performed PRK TLCT 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.
Ignazio successfully underwent surgery to treat the high myopic astigmatism he had in both eyes and that was compromising his balance, postural stability and optimal vision at all speeds. The surgery eliminated the athlete’s dependence on contact lenses. In fact, they kept shifting out of place during matches due to poor corneal fitting, thus compromising his performance and confidence.
Final refractive outcome: 20/14 visual acuity.
