The vast number of celebrity LASIK recipients really shows just how common and popular the procedure has become over the years. The list of famous athletes, musicians, models, and celebs reads like a who’s-who of some people’s favorite performers and entertainers.
Under the bright lights of Hollywood, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Brooke Shields, Kim Kardashian, Courtney Cox, and Nicole Kidman are just a few of the ravishing talents who have had the confidence to participate in the procedure and have walked away with breathtaking results. Those are some beautiful eyes we’re talking about. And of course, we all remember that old Jessica Simpson reality television episode where she too participated (and quickly, though hilariously, recovered from the procedure). Celebrity LASIK, indeed.
In the wide world of sports, professional golfer Tiger Woods, perhaps the most well-known figure of any sport worldwide, was among the first athletes to get LASIK. Following in Tiger’s wake, such athletes as Troy Aikman, Tiki Barber, Patrick Ewing, and Vijay Singh have followed suit, as have world champion teammates for the NBA’s Miami Heat, LeBron James and Dwayne Wade. Just this past summer, Toronto Raptors star forward Rudy Gay underwent laser vision correction. He didn’t like wearing sport goggles or contacts on the court, so he played his whole career with blurry vision. If Gay, James and Tiger can do it, so can you. This isn’t shooting an eighteen under par or registering a triple-double we are talking about; this is a procedure available to pretty much everybody.
As far as musicians go, Elton John, Carlos Santana, Michael Bolton, Kenny G, and Mel B are just a few of the bevy of note-reading musical performers to improve their vision through LASIK. Yes, Elton John, a man renowned for his outrageous choice of glasses over the years, even felt the impetus to get LASIK.
As so many of your favorite stars of the stage, silver screen, and athletic fora have already done, contact a reputable LASIK vision correction provider today to see if you are a candidate for the procedure. You may just thank your lucky stars you did!
