Italy’s National Ski Team
Vision Problem: Myopic 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.
Luisa successfully underwent surgery to treat the high myopic astigmatism that prevented her from competing at her best. In fact, her contact lenses would get lost or move around during slalom races resulting in discomfort and lack of confidence. The surgery eliminated the athlete’s dependence on contact lenses.
Final refractive outcome: 20/14 visual acuity.
