Ultimate Fighting Championship™ (UFC) Title Contender, Nate "The Great" Marquardt, Joins the Growing List of Professional Athletes Choosing Denver's Icon LASIK for Laser Vision Correction
Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 26, 2009 -- Professional Mixed Martial Artist (MMA) and UFC title contender, Nate "The Great" Marquardt, recently underwent successful PRK eye surgery from Icon LASIK, a Denver Colorado Lasik provider and full-service vision correction clinic. Since 1999, Icon LASIK has completed more than 65,000 successful LASIK/PRK procedures - more than any other LASIK provider throughout Colorado.
"When I was ready to choose an eye surgery center, I had the utmost confidence in Icon LASIK, especially since Icon has helped so many pro athletes improve their vision through LASIK or PRK," says Nate "The Great" Marquardt, an expert at combining the rigorous MMA disciplines of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, kickboxing, Kenpo, and wrestling. Marquardt also operates the Aurora-based academy, High Altitude Martial Arts, where he instructs the next generation of martial artists.
Other past and present professional athletes choosing Icon for vision correction include hall-of-fame quarterback John Elway, professional windsurfer Jake Miller, and pro cyclist and marathon runner LeRoy Popowski, among several others. "I would definitely recommend the Icon LASIK Denver team to anyone - pro athlete or not," adds Marquardt.
Like all patients Marquardt received a free consultation from Icon LASIK. Icon's doctors determined the PRK procedure would be most effective for Marquardt's needs. Icon LASIK owns the most advanced, custom laser systems in the U.S. including the VISX Star4 Wavefront Laser, the NIDEK EC-5000 eye tracker, and the IntraLase Bladeless Lasik system.
