Eyeglasses and sports participation can pose a number of annoying problems. First, eyeglasses, no matter how well designed and fit, can significantly impair peripheral vision. Limiting peripheral vision in sports such as basketball, soccer, lacrosse and football can be a considerable challenge to performance. The greater the prescription, the greater likelihood of not only a restriction of peripheral vision, but also a distortion of peripheral images. Eyeglasses would obviously be totally unsuitable for sports such as swimming and diving where the advantages of LASIK for Laser Vision Correction are obvious. One might suggest that contact lenses are a suitable method of vision correction for water sports such as swimming, diving, scuba diving and kayaking, however the possibility of contact lens contamination while being exposed to ocean or pool water suggests that wearing contact lenses for these activities may expose athletes to an unnecessary risk of infection as compared to LASIK. One might also believe that the choice of contact lenses for vision correction is the best method for runners, bicyclists, tennis players and even golfers. However, the likelihood of facial and scalp sweat, especially as it travels through the eyebrows and eyelashes, entering the eye during the exertion required of these sports may in fact pose an increased risk of infection during contact lens wear making LASIK a serious consideration for runners and bicyclists. Thus one could on and analyze virtually every sport and find that Laser Eye Surgery for Laser Vision Correction can offer benefits and advantages to most athletes involved many sports.
