For most pursuits, Kevin's unaided vision would have been considered acceptable, even without correction. But not for his avocation of target shooting. Paper targets at any distance were not perfectly clear, causing him to have difficulty sighting.
I knew that his distance prescription would be easily correctable with LASIK, but at 48 years of age his reading clarity would be adversely impacted if we cleared up the distance sharpness, due to presbyopia. He acknowledged and accepted this consequence of vision correction care happily, knowing that the would likely need reading glasses for close viewing after treatment.
On his first post-op visit (day 1 after treatment) Kevin was thrilled, reading the tiniest letters on the eye chart. He was better than 20/15 in one eye, and almost 20/10 in the other! He couldn't wait to get to the range to see how much more fun it would be to do target practice.
We are delighted for Kevin and wish him the greatest success in competition target shooting.
