Amy Van Dyken is a famous American swimmer who had participated in the Olympic games. She has six gold medals from the Olympics, of which four gold medals were given to her in the Summer Olympics of 1996, making her the first American woman that reached that benchmark, after winning the 100 meter butterfly stroke, fifty meter free style, 4×100 meter freestyle relay and 4×100 meter medley relay. Actually, Van Dyken started swimming due to her doctor’s advice. She suffered asthmatic attacks throughout her childhood and adulthood. A doctor recommended her to strengthen the lungs and prevent asthma attacks by swimming. She has retired from her professional swimming career and has been hosting the 98.7 FM Phoenix, AZ show ‘Chris and Amy in the Morning’ every weekday between 5:30 to 10 AM.
Recently, she had undergone a LASIK eye procedure at the Horizon Eye Specialists & Lasik Center and is very much satisfied about the results. Some years ago, she had a LASIK eye procedure in Colorado. She later experienced some vision loss and became very irritated when the surgeons she met told her that she cannot undergo another LASIK eye procedure to correct the problem. When she met with Dr. McCulloch, he evaluated her medical history and then told her that he would be able to operate on her & restore her vision. She is content with the results of her revision LASIK eye procedure – you can read more about her experience here.
