Vision problem: Myopia and astigmatism
Surgery: PRK and PSP Programme
Dr. Angelo Appiotti performed PRK 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.
The surgery was needed to treat Raffaele’s myopia and astigmatism because he did not tolerate contact lenses anymore. After surgery, he could finally stop wearing them and saw a massive improvement in clarity of vision and depth perception.
The final result was 18/10 natural visual acuity.
