Watch out now, Wade can see — he had Lasik surgery

Interesting little note out of the Miami Herald (in a story with a number of interesting tidbits)— Dwyane Wade has had Lasik surgery.

For those who were born with perfect eyes and never had to deal with it, Lasik is the laser eye surgery that corrects vision problems.

Not every player is comfortable with this surgery — some prefer to wear glasses (Amar’e Stoudemire being the most famous glasses wearer in the league now). While there is risk with any surgery, Lasik is about the most common of procedures in the United States and if done by someone reputable there is little likely to go wrong.

We’ll see if this helps his 30.6 percent shooting from three. Although what might help more is 500 shots a day.

    So that’s why he ran into a brick wall AKA the Custodian.

    Excuse #937 why the Miami Heat did not the championship! Were they all struck by lightning too? Is this suggesting that a professional athlete waited till he was near blind to get his vision corrected? Maybe last off-season would have been a better time. What a tool! Maybe he had to wait for LeBron to pay so he could afford it. What a trainwreck this heat team is. They deserve a reality show.

      Where in this article does it say Wade’s vision was another reason why they lost?

      Even Bigger Tool.

    @ silencegooddoer:
    Really? The Heat is a trainwreck? Since does a trainwreck make the finals? I refuse to believe you’re that dumb, but I’ve been wrong once or twice before…

    I thought Amare wore the glasses for protection, after he suffered that serious eye injury a few years back after getting poked/scratched in the eye, not because he couldn’t see. Otherwise, why does he take them off when he shoots free throws?
