ITALIAN NATIONAL SKI TEAM
Vision problem: Astigmatism
Surgery: FemtoLASIK and PSP Programme
Dr. Angelo Appiotti performed FemtoLASIK surgery with the aid of the PSP (Personal Sportsman Profile) programme, that he specifically devised for professional athletes to achieve visual acuity from 10/10 to 20/10, and, most importantly, make vision more stable, accurate and faster at every change in distance and light.
Surgery corrected the athlete’s mixed astigmatism in both eyes. This refractive error, which cannot be corrected with contact lenses, significantly hindered the athlete in those competitions with low-light or low-contrast conditions: cloudy weather, snow, dimly-lit environments or quick changes in light conditions.
Visual recovery was immediate for Christof, with a significant improvement in contrast sensitivity and ability to see fine detail.
The final result was 18/10 natural visual acuity.
