Balotelli undergoes successful Laser Eye Surgery
Mario Balotelli has undergone successful laser eye surgery after an allergy made wearing contacts lenses impossible for the Italy and Manchester City striker.
Italy and Manchester City forward Balotelli had the procedure last Monday, a day earlier than scheduled, to avoid having photographers and reporters waiting for him outside a clinic in his hometown of Brescia.
“He had a few problems with contact lenses some years ago,” his surgeon Emanuele Scuri told Sky Sport Italia. He added that the operation will allow Balotelli to “see very well”.
“This was the right time to have the operation. His eyes did not tolerate the contact lenses and had problems at the start of the season. …I think in around 10 days he should be ready to play again. Already this morning he asked if he could drive and I suggested he should get a lift until Thursday”.
“This surgery will enable Balotelli to see very well.”
Balotelli is near-sighted and has worn contact lenses for years but the lenses have caused allergies recently and an abscess that led to conjunctivitis, which ruled him out of Italy’s friendly with England last month.
The Italian is expected to be back in action before City’s Champions League clash with Real Madrid.
