Vision problem: Myopia
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 procedure was combined with the ‘tissue saving’ programme for thin corneas.
Thanks to myopia correction surgery in both eyes, Samuel could eliminate contact lenses, which impaired his athletic performance and often moved or got lost during jumps causing discomfort and posing a risk to his safety.
The final result was 16/10 natural visual acuity.
