Snooker star Judd Trump, formerly world number 1, has tweeted about his successful laser eye surgery with Optegra Eye Health Care. Nicknamed “The Ace”, Trump boasts an impressive 7 ranking titles since starting his professional career in 2005. It is hoped that his new found perfect vision will help him scale new heights within the competitive world of professional snooker.
Laser Eye Surgery is a safe and effective procedure to fix eyesight issues such as short sight, long sight and astigmatism. The technique is perfect for those looking to permanently correct their vision and eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses. While the underlying science behind the different types of laser eye surgery are similar, there are significant differences between first, second, and third generation techniques. PRK first generation laser eye surgery is far more manual and painful and is now rarely practiced. Second generation techniques such as LASIK are far more comfortable and currently the most popular type of laser eye surgery. Optegra Eye Health Care are one of few UK vision correction providers who also offer the third generation ReLEx SMILE technique, in addition to LASIK and LASEK. The SMILE procedure is the most minimally invasive laser eye surgery technique available in the world today, even though most UK clinics and providers do not as yet have the technology or surgical expertise to offer it.
Trump made public his experience on his Twitter account, tweeting “laser eye surgery today”. Responding to one of his nervous followers the day following surgery, he tweeted “so easy you gotta get it done vision is perfect this morning”. The snooker star had his laser done at the Optegra North London dedicated eye hospital – one of several high tech Optegra facilities nationwide. Unlike most well-known laser eye surgery providers, Optegra Eye Health Care are hospital based as opposed to High Street based.
Trump is not alone in going down the laser eye surgery route to perfect vision. Just a small pot-pourri of fellow celebrities who have had laser eye surgery include Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Cindy Crawford, Courtney Cox, Jessica Simpson, Elton John and Mel B.
Those thinking about perfecting their vision via laser eye surgery can consider visiting an Optegra Open Evening.
