Being an Athlete is not an easy job, when having to worry about wearing glasses or contacts. It is almost impossible to play at one’s best ability, when their vision is not perfect. I personally play soccer, and have to wear contacts. Although, wearing contacts increases my vision it also has an effect on it. Soccer is a very physical sport and it includes a lot of running. During my games sometimes my vision gets blurry or my eyes become very dry.The Santa Ana winds blowing in Los Angeles are no help. It becomes very hard for me to focus on the sport, when my eyes are bothered by my contacts. How will I be able to bend it like Beckham? There are times when my contacts move out of place, and I just can’t continue playing the game until I fix the contacts. I would love to play soccer without having to worry about my eyes being bothered – and become the next Mia Hamm:) For this reason, I am highly considering getting lasik surgery done!
