Vision problem: Hyperopia
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 Daniele’s hyperopia, since he did not tolerate contact lenses anymore, and this affected his performance in high-speed races – and breaking the 300 km/h speed barrier with poor vision is extremely dangerous.
The final result was 12/10 natural visual acuity.
