When it comes to the LASIK doctors Fort Worth has, there are many options, and athletes appear to be the sort of people who could benefit from their services. Emergency rooms in hospitals are full of athletes, who have broken their glasses while playing their chosen sport. Also, glasses have a tendency to slide and slip as an athlete sweats, which adversely impacts on game strategies and training. Although LASIK eliminates the requirement for contacts and glasses, athletes still have to schedule time off from playing sport to recover. Fourteen days is the minimum amount of recovery time needed, and this could be considerably longer, based on the particular sport.
