McIlroy has laser eye surgery

Rory McIlroy revealed that he has undergone successful laser eye surgery to correct his vision.

The Northern Irishman first needed glasses at the age of ten and has spent his entire playing career wearing contacts. 

However, after the surgery on Tuesday, McIlroy will have full 20/20 vision.

The world number three posted an image of himself on Instagram, where he poked fun at himself for having to wear weird glasses, which he compared to a dog wearing a cone.


Human version of the dreaded K-9 cone…. Only for sleeping though! Laser eye surgery went well yesterday %uD83D%uDC40%uD83D%uDC4D
