Athletes generally do not spend their off-season simply waiting for the upcoming opening game. Instead, they work diligently to enhance their performance, but sometimes not in what we would consider “traditional” methods of giving them an edge in their sport. Many athletes find they greatly improve their performance with a visit to Magruder Laser Vision for an Advanced LASIK eye treatment. The Orlando LASIK professionals at Magruder can correct your vision if you are nearsighted, farsighted, or have astigmatism with the technology of Advanced LASIK. In fact, MLS professional and Midfielder for Atlanta United FC, Harrison Heath, recently trusted his eyes to Doc Brock and his staff with great results.

Heath absolutely loves the clear vision he has experienced since his LASIK procedure. “It’s the best decision I’ve ever made for my career and myself,” said Heath recently. “Doctor Magruder and his staff made me feel completely at ease, the surgery was no stress, and the results are amazing.” Heath finds it is much simpler to “keep his eye on the ball,” even in direct sunlight as he heads to the field with the other Boys of Summer. Heath further commented that the procedure made him excited about the coming season, stating, “I can’t wait to get out there and start playing with the vision I have now.”

Heath is not alone in how he has improved his professional athletic career with Advanced LASIK. Basketball, soccer, football… every sports pro with below-professional vision will benefit from improved sight. The ability to focus clearly on the basket, goal, or outstretched glove aids in higher percentages of assists, saves, and outs.

Bright light circumstances cause many athletes to squint their eyes, but others simply cannot see well without narrowing their field of vision through squinting. With their visual field curtailed, it is much more difficult to view the entire game as it unfolds. While glasses will keep you from squinting, wearing glasses proves to be dangerous for many athletes. Contacts are a step up from glasses, but can cause problems at the least opportune times.

Doc Brock and his staff have performed Advanced LASIK on many pro athletes as an assist to their game.
