Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz should be able to see downfield better this season.

Wentz revealed that he had laser eye surgery this offseason after playing with contact lenses during his rookie year.

“I had PRK done, so it was very helpful,” Wentz said on WIP. “It’s pretty cool to wake up in the morning and not have to throw contacts in. It’s been very beneficial.”

Wentz isn’t the only NFC East quarterback who’s had laser eye surgery. Washington’s Kirk Cousins said the surgery left him with vision that was better than 20/20.

    unless it magically helps WR’s catch the ball, probably not gonna have much impact on his game.

    The downside is that now he can clearly see that he’s in Philadelphia.

    Shucks a blind QB. Who wouldn’t pay to see that?

    Great, he should have a bird’s-eye view now.

    Noooooooo!!!! Surgery….. to the best QB in the NFC East!! Why!!??? Is that career threatening? 😂

    You’d think an NFL QB would rather have laser arm surgery.

    Ba Dum tiss. Try the veal.

    No pressure at all on the doctor who performed the surgery. One ill-timed sneeze and a young QB’s career is over.

    Is that why no major DI FBS college offered him a scholarship to play QB? What did they know?

    I hate my contacts, always dry my eyes out. Glasses are annoying as hell, constant smudges I need to clean. It makes all the sense in the world for me to opt for the laser eye surgery, but I just can’t friggin’ do it. Watching that YouTube video of a procedure probably didn’t help…

    Setting up the excuse wagon early for when Josh norman owns him and picks him off a multitude of times this season I see.

    That procedure is a miracle. It’s one of the few things to spend money on and you don’t have to wonder if it was worth it.

  12. tindeaux says: Apr 27, 2017 3:01 PM

    problem is his receivers didn’t have Lasik surgery.

  13. fishyinalittledishy says: Apr 27, 2017 3:06 PM

    Probably should have had laser arm surgery.

  14. dirtydrynn27 says: Apr 27, 2017 3:07 PM

    Dude needs some WRs and a solid o-line!

  15. therealtrenches says: Apr 27, 2017 3:08 PM

    This will mean that Carson has a crystal clear view of the ball as it leaves his hands, flies past opposing defenders, into the hands of Nelson Agholor, and down to the turf.

  16. jgedgar70 says: Apr 27, 2017 3:15 PM

    Oh, so THAT’S why he committed his share of those 47 turnovers in the Vikings game. Maybe Sam Bradford needs the surgery also……..

    “The downside is that now he can clearly see that he’s in Philadelphia.”

    @redlikethepig Spoken like someone who has never actually been there.

  18. Waffle 2.0 says: Apr 27, 2017 3:23 PM

    He will now be able to better connect on the pre-planned 7yd WR screens and dump offs to Sproles.

  19. chrisk61 says: Apr 27, 2017 3:33 PM

    so he will hit joe mixon right on the numbers, in stride, on the wheel route

  20. jvonblohnjvb0013 says: Apr 27, 2017 3:35 PM

    His eyes are now lasers?

  21. realtruthteller100 says: Apr 27, 2017 3:39 PM

    lasik is unnatural and should be consdiered a perforamnce enhancing drug. carson should have to play with the set of eyes that god gave him. how is this any different from a guy injecting his biceps with artifical testosterone? sounds like a double standerd 2 me.

    Gotta give Redskins troller Logicalvoice credit. No matter how the Redskins implode year after year he’s right there doing his thing.

  23. steeelfann0155 says: Apr 27, 2017 3:57 PM

    Dang, wait till he clearly sees the city he is stuck in……….not all roses my friend.

  24. realityonetwo says: Apr 27, 2017 4:06 PM

    Super Bowl!

    I had corrective eye surgery. It was great initially then I was hit with devastating side effects like fluctuating vision, night blindness and light sensativity. I should have known something was up when I saw that the surgeon was wearing glasses. Eye surgery can be very risky, it doesn’t work for everyone. I wish him luck

    Lasik was the best money I ever spent.

  27. hrmlss says: Apr 27, 2017 5:04 PM

    Wow, so did I! This is major news! Millions of people have also had it! Yawn, start the draft.
