Professional Cyclist Lucas Euser Improves His Vision at ICON LASIK in Denver

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2011) - Lucas Euser, a professional cyclist for Team Spidertech, recently took advantage of ICON LASIK's independent surgeons and improved his vision to 20/20. Lucas visited the ICON LASIK surgery center in Denver, Colorado. His surgery was performed by independent surgeons.

A day after the surgery, Lucas stated: "You do realize you're in the business of changing lives, not just vision, right?" Lucas had fairly poor vision which required thick glasses while racing. This was a distinct disadvantage on days when the weather was poor. The perfect example was during the 2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge where the riders had a cold and rainy decent down Independence pass and into Aspen, Colorado. The small group that gaped the field because of the weather contained Tom Danielson, who was contact lens free because of his vision correction surgery at ICON LASIK in 2010. After that descent Lucas was convinced he needed LASIK eye surgery to stay competitive.

Lucas selected ICON LASIK in Denver because of their involvement with the USA Pro Cycling Challenge, the surgeons' extensive experience with athletes, and the sheer volume of Denver LASIK surgeries, which totals over 100,000 eyes.

Other notable patients that have selected ICON LASIK in Denver include John Elway and Nate Marquardt.

Icon LASIK's independent doctors treat many cyclists, not just for LASIK but also for common conditions such as dry eyes. Icon's LASIK doctors have the benefit of seeing thousands of patients every year. This experience, combined with leading technology, ensures every patient gets the best custom care possible.
