Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has might just proved that he is one of the greatest shooters ever as he revealed that he has recently started to wear contact lenses to correct his blurry vision.
“I started wearing contacts,” Curry told Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic. “No, I’m serious. It’s like the whole world has opened up.
“I had gotten so used to squinting for so long. It was just normal.”
Curry has also revealed that he has recently found out that his blurry vision was caused by astigmatism brought on by a degenerative eye disease called Keratoconus.
“Technically, it’s an eye disease in which the cornea, normally a circle, progressively thins and takes on a cone shape. This distortion has given Curry what is known as an astigmatism, which is a type of error in the way the light bends when entering the eye. It doesn’t distribute the light equally to the retina and leads to blurred or distorted vision. It’s a genetic condition Curry was probably born with, though scientists don’t know how it is acquired,” wrote Thompson. (via NBA)
