how bad are your eyes ?


from what I heard they don't let you fight if you had the surgery. and if you get hit in the head after getting surgery... ur eyes will be more f'd up the before.

All boxing medical forms say any eye surgery including laser automatically disqualifies you along with other things such as epilepsy, etc. We been through this last week. Why not use the search function?

Well the good news is you're allowed to wear contacts in Amateur boxing... so you still have about 4-6 years of that... and I dont see why you cant just get PRK surgery and just lie about it.... LASIK eye surgery is the one where you get messed up if you get hit to hard... PRK is just the same as if you didnt have surgery at all.

I don't know how some people say they fight with contacts on... I use contacts but I never sparred or fight with them... Won't they just get messed up in one hit and possibly end up falling out ?

Not really... if you do happen to box with contacts though make sure you get the disposable kind because if they fall out during the match you have to finish without them... you cant just stop and look for them.

i've fought both with and without contacts. in my first fight i had 1 knocked out. i definitely prefer without. sometimes i can go weeks in sparring without ever getting my contacts knocked out, and other times they'll get messed up with the first punch i take.

I chuck my eye prescription in the bin because I can read road signs fine when I am driving. The eye test in boxing medicals is fairly basic. If you fail it then you really are blind as a bat and should not box! Simple as that. I know a guy who failed it with his contacts in! he then got a second opinion done from his opticians and got his card. But the dumb cunt can't see shots coming when someone is boxing from afar! he was indeed as blind as ****ing bat. They have certain medical restrictions in boxing for a reason: YOUR SAFETY. Just accept the results of the medical as it is like a man, with dignity! There is always coaching if you are too blind to box, lol.
