Contact lens cures baseball player"s sight

A contact lens has proved to be the solution for a US baseball player who was suffering from blurred vision in one eye.

Brian McCann, catcher for the Atlanta Braves, revealed that he had been found to be more shortsighted in his left eye, the Canadian Press reported.

He may also need surgery on his eye when the game season is over.

"It"s going to be a process and I hope it doesn"t take more than a week to get under the lights and start seeing like I did last year," he said.

Last week, MLB.com reported that Mr McCann was searching for the reason for his blurry vision.

He was also experiencing dryness in the eye.

The player has had laser surgery in the past but told the news source that he did not want to repeat the procedure if there was an alternative.

Previously he had tried ointment, eye drops and a contact lens for the problem.
