Triathlete Susanne Richert: “Thanks to EuroEyes I can enjoy the benefits of a life without glasses.”

From this season on EuroEyes is the official IRONMAN Eye and Vision Partner. The Eye Clinic Group’s goal is to combine sporting pleasure with medical care – sports without glasses, cycling, swimming and running without contact lenses. Susanne Richert is a triathlete who used to do the sport with glasses for years. Now she tells how the vision aid has affected her sporting activities and how EuroEyes has changed her life.

Susanne Richert was already very active in her youth: “My passion was triathlon. Swimming, cycling, running. Triathlon and glasses? That doesn’t work! In all three disciplines I was bothered by the glasses I had to wear since I was 15 years old. That’s why I switched to contact lenses.” Although the passionate athlete still had to make compromises, especially when swimming, there was no better alternative at that time.

“The contact lenses caused a burning sensation in my eyes and the pain was almost unbearable. Therefore I had to switch to glasses again” said Susanne Richert. How EuroEyes was able to help Susanne Richert and how the vision aid impaired her life and thus her sporting activities can be seen in the following interview:

When did you discover your passion for triathlon?

In my childhood my parents were enthusiastic athletes. I tried many sports: Athletics, running, etc. After all, I got stuck in triathlon. The mixture of swimming, cycling and running inspired me.

At that time I joined the sports club of my university. In the group we trained swimming, running and cycling at least once a week. In addition, each of us did sport for himself. We were very active, the sporting dynamics were contagious.

Which discipline do you like most – swimming, cycling, running?

That’s easy to answer: swimming! Preferably in the sea, even if that’s not always possible.

In which aspect did your glasses or contact lenses disturb you?

I was disturbed by the visual aid in all three disciplines. When I swam, I completely avoided glasses and contact lenses and tried to orient myself to my fellow competitors – which fortunately always worked well. When cycling and running I sometimes wore glasses and sometimes contact lenses. However, the glasses always slipped off my nose and affected my field of vision. I also felt restricted by the contact lenses: I couldn’t reach into my eyes, I couldn’t wipe the sweat off my face. Neither glasses nor contact lenses were the ideal solution for me, something always disturbed me.

Was your passion for triathlon the decisive reason for eye surgery?

Yes, among other things. Sport has always been an important part of my life. I didn’t want to have to compromise any more.

How was your treatment at EuroEyes?

Everything in the clinic in Hamburg was very trustworthy. Immediately after the first treatment we arranged an appointment for the operation. I almost enjoyed it. The mixture of adrenalin and anticipation was simply indescribable. The multifocal lens operation went without any difficulties, everything went much faster than expected.

What does your life look like after the operation and what difference does the spectacle-free life in triathlon make?

I am totally relieved and feel liberated. After the operation, I was finally able to do sports undisturbed and enjoy the benefits of a life without glasses. I feel much more exhilarated and satisfied than with glasses or contact lenses. A great feeling that I would never want to miss again. Thanks to EuroEyes, my quality of life has improved so much.

Would you recommend the procedure to other athletes?

In any case, at any time. The lens treatment at EuroEyes has changed my life, I would recommend it to everyone who uses glasses or contact lenses.
