Contact lenses help baseball player to improve his game

Contact lenses help baseball player to improve his game

A top baseball player has revealed that new contact lenses have helped to transform his game and increase his batting average.

Eric Duncan, who plays for the Mississippi Braves and formerly starred for the New York Yankees, has revealed that contact lenses have been the key to him improving his sight and therefore his game.

He told the Clarion Ledger that his recent improved performances are all down to vision correction – something the 25-year-old hopes will lead to a career resurgence.

"I went to see a doctor and he found some corrections that needed to be made. It"s still early, but I have noticed a difference up there," he said.

Recently, sportsman Paul Shefflin, who plays hurling for his club team Ballyhale Shamrocks, in Kilkenny, said his decision to undergo laser eye surgery last month was a wise one, as it has enabled him to see the field of play more clearly.
