Vision problem: high compound myopic astigmatism
Surgery: Personalized TLCT
Dr. Angelo Appiotti used 10 years ago, a “personalized TLCT” technique to resolve a compound astigmatism defect for Arturo Lupoli, at the time striker for the Ascoli football team. A very low corneal thickness aggravated the defect. Refractive surgery was not advised by any other eye specialist Arturo Lupoli got in contact with. Not being able to bear contact lenses, the athlete was considering to prematurely abandon the competitive activity.
The end result in 2010 was 13/10 natural visual acuity. As for now after 10 years
Arturo’s visus has still remained unchanged.
