Who are the stars who have benefited from Laser Eye Surgery?

By Optical Express

With the glare of the world’s media focused on celebrities 24/7, there is enormous pressure on them to maintain a great image: perfect hair, perfect body, perfect smile and perfect style. One flaw which can’t be detected through a camera lens is bad vision and this can be a hindrance to stars during photo shoots or movies. Just like us, celebrities tire of putting in their contact lenses each morning or trying to locate their glasses, which is why many of them turn to laser eye surgery.

Actress Courtney Cox claims it saved her career. “It’s a miracle, I feel I’ve been given a new life” Cox said. Before she had the surgery back in 1999, she struggled to read cue cards or an auto prompt. When working on hit TV show, Friends, she had difficulty telling her co-stars Lisa Kudrow and Jennifer Aniston apart (one is blonde, the other a brunette!). Courtney’s eyesight was so bad that she actually qualified as legally blind. Now, she says, “every day is a new experience of vibrant images”.

Check out some other famous faces that have gone under the laser so they can see the world in all its glory…

The star of Moulin Rouge, the ever sexy Nicole Kidman had laser eye surgery in 2007 and commented afterwards “I was walking around legally blind. Now I have 20-20 vision. I can’t believe I spent so many years blurry.”

Fellow actress, Reese Witherspoon restored her eyesight with laser eye surgery to help progress her career. It certainly worked as she now has an Oscar to show for it!

Britain’s favourite entrepreneur, Richard Branson is no Virgin when it comes to laser eye surgery, his vision now is out of this world.

One of the world’s most famous supermodels, Cindy Crawford also opted for laser eye surgery after struggling with her contact lenses on the catwalk.

Radio DJ, TV presenter and famous spectacle wearer Chris Evans recently underwent the treatment and spoke about its life changing effects on his radio show.

Another famous and flamboyant spec wearer, Elton John has had it done too. In reference to the procedure and his collection of over 4,000 pairs of glasses he said “I’m so fed up with ‘Where are they?’ I can’t see anything, so why wait?”. While Elton likely won’t be seen without his iconic tinted shades, at least now he doesn’t have to worry about adding prescription lenses to every pair!

One of the hottest men Hollywood has to offer, Brad Pitt underwent LASIK surgery as he felt he didn’t look his best when he wore his glasses.
