STEPH Curry has already established himself as arguably the greatest shooter in NBA history.
Imagine what he can do with better vision.
Recently revealing to The Athletic that he’s long had a problem with his eyes – specifically a “thinning cornea,” the Golden State Warriors superstar has recently started to wear contact lenses.
Curry gave his thoughts about his eye condition in a media scrum before the Warriors’ game against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center.
Mark Medina of The Mercury News recorded a video of the interview.

“It’s just clearer and sharper, like a camera lens when you put it in focus,” Curry said with a smile about his improved vision. “Sometimes, when it’s like a degree off, you can still see what the image is, but it’s not as sharp.”
The two-time MVP is coming into the game already with a career-high nine consecutive games with at least five three-pointers and is shooting on a 43.6-percent clip from beyond the arc in his last 14 games.
So opponents, beware of his expected sustained shooting thanks to his improved eyesight.
