European Kart Champion and European Rally Championship Driver
Visual defect: Compound myopic astigmatism
Surgery: FemtoLASIK and PSP program
Dr. Angelo Appiotti performed FemtoLASIK surgery in combination with PSP athlete specific program (Personal Sportsman Profile) designed to achieve superior and, above all, stable vision, with fast and accurate eye movements at every change of distance and light.
He performed a bilateral compound myopic astigmatism surgery, allowing Mattia to abandon contact lenses and glasses which caused him many problems especially during night races. In a rally, decisions have to be made in a split second and a perfect vision is the necessary requirement for competing at highest level.
The final result 5 days after the surgery was 20/10 natural visual acuity and a significantly improved night vision.
