LeBron James took another step in improving his game last week, undergoing Lasik eye surgery in Beverly Hills, Calif.
The procedure, performed by Dr. Kerry K. Assil, is designed to improve vision and assures a faster recovery. James’ vision has improved to 20/15, according to Assil, and he has already been cleared to resume workouts.
Lasik, which typically takes 10 to 15 minutes, involves a surgeon creating a corneal flap. The flap is then peeled back and a laser is used to reshape the cornea. Once the cornea is reshaped, light rays coming into the eye will properly focus on the retina for clear vision.Â
James Â is scheduled to host the season premiere of NBC’s Saturday Night Live on Sept.Â¤29.Â Â The Cavaliers open training camp On Oct. 2nd,Â inÂ defense of their Eastern Conference championship.
