"I decided to have LASIK because I noticed that it was becoming more difficult to see the gates and judge the terrain as I was skiing. After doing a ton of research and consulting with my team of doctors, one name kept coming up, and that was Dr. Maloney. I can't believe how crisp and clear everything is, I'm so excited!"

- Lindsey Vonn, World Champion Downhill Skier Lindsey Vonn Is Overjoyed With Her LASIK Results From MVI.

An American alpine ski racer, Vonn has won three consecutive overall World Cup and downhill championships 2008-2010, the first American woman and second woman ever to accomplish this. Vonn then won the gold medal in downhill at the 2010 Winter Olympics, the first ever in the event for an American woman. Vonn also won consecutive World Cup season titles in Super G and a title in the combined. With her 37 World Cup wins in four disciplines, her Olympic gold and bronze medals, two World Championship gold medals in 2009 (plus two silver medals in 2007), Vonn has become the most successful American female in ski racing history.

“Professional sports demand perfect vision,” said Dr. Maloney. “We are hoping that perfect vision helps Lindsey to win more gold medals in 2014. And if LASIK can help an already world-class athlete, imagine how it can enhance the enjoyment of sports for any active adult.”

The day after their LASIK procedures, Lindsey tweeted, “I am already seeing 20/20 in both eyes and they expect after a few more days of healing it will be 20/15 in both. My husband only had his right eye done and he is already seeing 20/15. I can't believe how crisp and clear everything is, I'm so excited!”
