celebrities having LASIKThis month country music star Blake Shelton reportedly became the latest celebrity to opt for the same vision correction surgery that Binghamton, New York LASIK eye doctor Daniel Sambursky performs daily.

Just like so many of the busy people who visit Dr. Sambursky with hopes that LASIK will simplify their lives, Shelton’s Twitter feed indicates he was thrilled about the prospect of life without glasses or contact lenses after LASIK. The music press reported that Shelton was scheduled for the procedure on July 15th. The day before that, he tweeted:

I’m getting LASIK surgery tomorrow… Why in gods name would I wait til I’m almost dead to get this done?!”

For the record, the Oklahoma-born country music singer and television personality is (presumably far from the grave) at age 39. Shelton joins a lengthy list of fellow celebrities who have gone on record as having LASIK. That list includes:

  • Tiger Woods
  • Barry Manilow
  • Jessica Simpson
  • Brad Pitt
  • Nicole Kidman
  • John Goodman
  • Julianne Moore
  • Kim Kardashian

And just like Dr. Sambursky’s patients, these high-profile former glasses wearers find that LASIK simplifies athletics, fashion, travel and personal hygiene.

If you live or work in Binghamton, Elmira, Corning or Ithaca, New York and want to improve your vision, please contact Binghamton eye doctor Daniel Sambursky online or by telephone to schedule your free LASIK consultation: 877-333-0700.
