Rory McIlroy has laser eye surgery

Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy underwent laser eye surgery, according to his official social media accounts.

Playing a sport where hand-eye coordination is enormously crucial, numerous professional golfers have undergone laser eye treatment over the years.

McIlroy didn't seem overly concerned with the procedure, equating his look to a K-9 cone that dogs often wear after surgery.

Human version of the dreaded K-9 cone.... Only for sleeping though! Laser eye surgery went well yesterday 👀👍

He most recently played at the DP World Tour Championship, where he locked up his third Race to Dubai title in four years.

The 26-year-old Northern Irishman isn't expected to tee it up again until the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on the European Tour, which starts Jan. 21 in the United Arab Emirates.
