Vision problem: Myopic astigmatism
Surgery: FemtoLASIK and PSP Programme
Dr. Angelo Appiotti performed FemtoLASIK surgery with the aid of the PSP (Personal Sportsman Profile) programme, that he devised for all professional athletes to improve one’s vision and, most importantly, make it more stable, accurate and faster at every change in distance and light.
Surgery was needed to correct the severe myopic astigmatism of the athlete, who needed to wear contact lenses that would move or get lost during slaloms, thus impairing her sports performance and posing a risk to her safety. After surgery Luisa was finally able to stop wearing contact lenses.
The final result was 14/10 natural visual acuity.
