Another professional baseball player has turned to contact lenses to help him in his game, with Atlanta Braves star Nate McLouth looking to improve his statistics.

He said that the contact lenses he picked up during the offseason have been a big help both in seeing pitches and in the outfield.

"It"s kind of like going from watching standard-definition television to watching HD," the baseball player commented.

He revealed that he had not bothered to sort out his vision problems until recently.

According to the Associated Press, Braves manager Bobby Cox has also noticed a difference in McLouth"s vision after the adoption of contact lenses, predicting a big year for the player.

The news comes after it emerged that Corey Hart, a rightfielder for the Milwaukee Brewers, will be wearing some prescription goggles to help deal with eyesight problems.

Meanwhile, the NY Daily News recently reported that New York Yankees player Curtis Granderson would be trying out contact lenses to help him improve his game.
