Troy Aikman

From NFL star to ESPN commentator, Troy Aikman’s reputation is impressive. Do you ever remember seeing a picture of Troy with glasses? No? We don’t either. That’s because he underwent LASIK years ago, and today, Troy can see the teleprompter and highlights of the game with ease.

LeBron James

Would the Cleveland Cavaliers be the same without LeBron? We didn’t think so either, but LeBron needed vision correction once, too. Fortunately, LASIK boosted his game, and now, he doesn’t have to worry about a bulky pair of glasses while dribbling up and down the court.

Brad Pitt

Brad Pitt has starred in dozens of movies, and who could forget his role in “Mr. and Mrs. Smith,” where his character wore glasses periodically? Brad Pitt had LASIK early in his career, and we can easily assume the tabloid pictures would have been certainly different with him wearing glasses all the time.

Reese Witherspoon

“Sweet Home Alabama” – Reese Witherspoon’s role in this movie was fantastic. She went from southern girl to New York fashionista and back again, but she never had to change her glasses. Wait. She didn’t have any glasses then, and we don’t recall seeing her with them in public well, ever. We’d bet she appreciates LASIK when studying new scripts, too.

Jessica Simpson

With a track record of movies, tracks, TV shows, and more, Jessica Simpson, with her picture-perfect smile, has built a career on versatility. But her original vision was anything but perfect. Jessica Simpson underwent LASIK, and well, she now has the versatility to enjoy life and her career without fumbling with glasses or contacts.
