McCann undergoing Lasik surgery again

Tired of the prescription glasses that he wore this year, Brian McCann has decided to undergo Lasik surgery again. 

Dr. Alan Kozarsky was scheduled to perform this surgical procedure at 4:30 p.m. ET on Friday in Atlanta.  Kozarsky also performed this surgery on McCann after the conclusion of the 2007 season. 

McCann, who has made four consecutive All-Star appearances, had to wear the glasses this year because his vision had changed since intiailly undergoing this procedure at the age of 23.

“It’s going to be like night and day for me,” said McCann, who hit .289
with 19 homers in the 125 games that he played after returning to the
Braves on May 8 with the glasses.

McCann said that he had been given no reason to be concerned about undergoing this surgery twice in the span of two years.  Based on what the Braves have said in the past, the fear would be that his vision could change again.

Hope these doctors are right as the FDA announced also on Friday that they are going to study the Lasik surgery problems of dry eyes, halos at night, etc.. that has resulted in permanent damage to the eyes.
