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.
