Could Sam Worthington benefit from OrthoK contact lenses? | 15.01.2010
Avatar star Sam Worthington has revealed that he suffers from short-sightedness.
In an interview he stated that people often think he looks angry, but in reality he is squinting to see clearly.
"I'm blind. I can't see," he said. "People think that when I squint that I'm angry all the time. It's just that I can't f**king see."
However, the actor, who shot to fame playing Jake Sully in James Cameron's sci-fi flick, added that his weak natural vision
can come in handy when filming, as he does not get distracted easily.
"I don't get distracted by anything on set," he stated. "So it's just basically me and the other person."
Over night contact lenses
could be the key to Worthington's vision issues. They are worn while asleep and work by gently reshaping the eye flattening the cornea so light focuses correctly on the back of the retina.

lenses could prove the perfect solution for the actor, as he would be able to see perfectly on film sets, without having to worry about losing contact lenses while performing stunts.
A number of celebrities opt for eye laser surgery to treat their short-sightedness and ensure they do not have to wear glasses, however, the procedure is not without its risks.
While famous faces such as Nicole Kidman and Myleene Klass have praised the procedure, Former Spice Girl Mel B is one star who suffered from eye laser surgery complications
after one of her eyes regressed following the treatment.
