Celebrities Included among Fans of LASIK Eye Surgery


If you're considering LASIK eye surgery and could be persuaded by knowing some of your favorite celebrities have had the laser vision correction procedure, it might be time to make your appointment. While most celebrities are hesitant to admit to breast implants, liposuction, nose jobs, and hair transplants, quite a few have gone public about having LASIK.

Of course, the celebrity gossip Web sites list plenty of actors, models, and athletes they think have had LASIK, though they admit they don't know for sure. But some celebrities have allowed their LASIK surgeons to use their names as satisfied patients, and a few have even recorded endorsements.

Well-known Actors, Musicians Provide Testimonials for LASIK

Jessica Simpson, Dennis Quaid, Drew Carey, William Shatner, Cindy Crawford, Barry Manilow, Michael Bolton, Graham Nash, Ricki Lake, Lorenzo Lamas, La Toya Jackson, LeBron James and Gail Devers have all undergone LASIK surgery and allowed their surgeons to use their names in advertisements.

A common theme among endorsements is the fact that reshaping the cornea with a laser beam to correct vision problems is quick and nearly painless, and yields impressive results within days of the procedure.

Among actors listed as supposed LASIK patients on gossip sites are Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Courtney Cox, Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, John Goodman, and Brook Shields. Musicians said to have had LASIK include Elton John, Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, and Ashlee Simpson.
